Friends, it is with great sadness that we write this post… We wish that it is not sad, but gives us comfort and inspires hope… To our great regret, the kitten Dusty went over the rainbow, quietly and meekly left this world. Kidney failure was the last obstacle in his path, and fighting this medical condition is often, if not always, unequal.
Since October, Dusty has been in a foster home with Kichka – Vicky’s mother, who some time ago was a foster rescuer for kitten Kolyo. In those few months in the company of the lady who opened her home and heart to him, Dusty seemed to blossom and transform from a scared and timid street cat into a loving house cat without reservation. Words cannot express our gratitude to Vicki and her mother for what they did for an unwanted, neglected and sick cat and we believe Dusty felt their love. From them we know that his favorite pastime was lounging on the cupboard on the terrace, where the sun’s rays warmed his feline heart.
So, our consolation is that another innocent being was able to feel what it is to have a homely and peaceful life, with nice people by your side. And our hope – that others would follow the good example to help an animal in need.
Rest in peace sweet boy. The sun will shine for you🙏🤍🐱
- Name : Dusty
- Gender: Male
- Castration: yes
- Age: About 7 years old, but possibly much younger.
- Character: meek, calm.
- Medical condition: With feline AIDS (not dangerous to humans or dogs).
- Is Dusty right for you? Dusty is an extremely calm, slightly apathetic and very beautiful cat. It can be a pleasant companion without bothering you and drawing attention to itself. He will stay meekly next to you, and when you stroke him he will purr contentedly:) It is not recommended to live with other cats, unless they are also AIDS carriers. It is necessary to conduct periodical control examinations of the gums, diseased teeth are extracted. On 31.08, an 84-day treatment with the drug GS against FIP ended. The general condition should be observed 84 days after.
- The story: A stray cat found in a miserable state.
Dusty’s surgery went through. All of Dusty’s teeth have been pulled out and he’s pain free! He even has a big appetite and eats with pleasure. On 23.01 there is a control examination. Dusty is still looking for adopters.
Dusty was taken in for a check-up by his foster owners. His blood work isn’t perfect, but that’s to be expected since he’s a feline AIDS carrier. And while some cats can live many years with AIDS without a problem, our boy also overcame FIP and now struggles with the effects of immunodeficiency. Dusty’s teeth and mouth have become inflamed again and the few remaining teeth have to be extracted. There are many sores in the mouth,
which prevent him from eating – that’s why he was given an antibiotic with a depot effect of 14 days. The medicine will reduce the pain and calm the overall condition of the mouth, so that after the New Year the operation can be done.
Along with this, Dusty also gets sores on his paws – again a consequence of feline AIDS. The wounds have been cleaned and treated and will soon heal.
All these cares will cost a lot of money, so we ask for your help.
Dusty arrived at his foster home in Burgas today. Calm and purring, he finally felt the warmth of a loving home:)See: Video Heartfelt thanks to his foster parents. We continued to look for Adopters. Apply to be Dusty’s Adopter
For quite a long time, no one responded to Dusty’s need to get out of the clinic, and he spent 4 depressing months behind bars in the hospital. Luckily for us, the volunteer who had adopted kitten Kolyo at a foster home helped us again and her mother will take Dusty as a foster parent in Burgas so that he can have warm winter days. From 01.10 until his departure, he was briefly in his first foster home, in Sofia. It’s hard for him to relax and believe he’s in a home, even for a little while, but he’s getting calmer every day. The only specifics of Dusty’s breeding at the moment is that he is fed mainly soft food or pellets soaked in water. Dusty continues to look for a permanent home where he can live peacefully.
Dusty has officially tested negative for Mycoplasma and is not taking any antibiotics. His last complete blood count is from today and there is nothing worrisome about his parameters.
The boy is becoming more and more relaxed with people and can’t wait for a Human to claim him so that he can transform into the beautiful cat that he really is.
Day 76/84 of GS treatment. The end is in sight… but in fact, there is still a long way to go.
Dusty’s mouth has not been good – 7 diseased teeth have been extracted, now he will be on an antibiotic for a few days. For carriers of feline AIDS, diseased gums and teeth are commonplace. It is simply necessary to observe and take timely measures.
His blood was also taken for new tests – PKK is fine, there are changes in biochemistry, but we assume that it is due to his illness. A new sample is also being sent to Germany, we hope the mycoplasma is gone. Dusty is looking for a peaceful home to recuperate.
