At the end of the autumn of 2017, CSF Sanctuary gave a home to four kitties whose owner had passed away, and they lost not only their human, but also their home, because the new heir refused to take care of them. The waiting period since their arrival was over and their immune systems were now ready for all of the necessary procedures, so we took three out of the four kitties to the vet for their spay/neuter procedures.
Young Farrel was neutered and everything went well, so he was ready to join the other CSF residents in the yard. He tested negative to FIV/FeLV.
Cillian managed to charm everyone at the vet ambulance during the short time he spent there, as he is handsome, huge and a real love bug. Unfortunately, he tested positive to FiV and from now on he’ll be receiving his monthly dose of interferon in order to keep the virus under control.
Although we didn’t know it, Sybill had already been spayed before she arrived at the shelter but her spay surgery wasn’t done correctly and plenty of adhesions were found inside her abdomen – adhesions are actually fibrous bands of scar tissue that form between tissues and organs that are not normally connected, causing them to stick together. Once all of them were removed, Sybill had to stay at the vet’s for the next 24 hours and she was brought back to the shelter yesterday morning. Her mange and ear mites (which she had when we took her in) have been cured since and she is not hissing at growling at everyone anymore. We’ll continue boosting up her immune system to prevent her problems from reoccurring. She thankfully tested negative to FIV/FeLV.
Sinead is the only one who hasn’t been taken to the vet yet, as she is extremely skittish and unapproachable for the time being.
