Susie Q is the 1st cat rescued from the abandoned cat colony that launched the Duncan Home For Wayward cats.
She arrived feral with 3 kittens, Bandit, Ebony, and Heart. Bandit has been adopted, and Ebony and Heart are still seeking homes. Susie Q and her kittens have been under our care since 05/05/21.
She remains untouchable although she has become more approachable and no longer runs and hides when we are present. She is a beautiful cat.
She has already been to a vision specialist on Dec 12 who prescribed meds for her. It took 2 weeks to get one med because it is specialty and costly. Even after the med arrived, I have been unsuccessful in administering it because she is VERY resistant to being handled.
I have a squeeze cage designed for this situation, but she is small and because it is her eye that we need to treat, she can still move her head and we have had no luck getting meds in the eye.
So three vets later this beautiful feral baby is now at Rose City Animal Clinic for the next 14 days in hopes they can administer the meds and that doing so helps her eye improve.
The vision specialist said her eye still works and she can still see, but the surface is clouded with excessive blood vessel growth from a virus. The specialty med is supposed to reverse that.
We will see… I just hope that Susie Q will, too.
Please share this post with your people and consider contributing to her care.
