Prim is around 2 weeks of age. Petra is at least a week older. Both are as sweet as can be but they were definitely a pitiful sight when they first arrived – gunky eyes, running noses, and dirty fur. Prim was the worse off of the two and malnourished to boot. She received subq fluids, Pen G, and B12 yesterday (thanks @catsandfrittatas!) and we also tube fed both girls since their congestion was making bottle latching difficult. They are currently on eye meds and antibiotics and I’m doing warm compresses every feeding. Both are responding wonderfully to all the treatments. They are eating on their own again, gaining weight, and are already starting to look better!
I’m very grateful these girls were given a second chance. The phrase “Fostering Saves Lives” isn’t just a nice saying or a catchy hashtag – when it comes to the most vulnerable population in animal shelters, it’s literally and heartbreakingly true. It’s your donations that make this life-saving work possible. It’s why Prim and Petra are still here with us today, safe and sound in their snug incubator. So thank you, THANK YOU to everyone who has donated to our annual fundraiser so far. If you haven’t had a chance yet, there’s still time to help – click the link in my bio to learn more.
