Spring has sprung, flowers are blooming and everything’s becoming more cheerful and vivacious with lush greenery filling the yard, but the joy is spoiled by habitual spring problems. This is the time when the cats’ seasonal allergies appear and we’ve been facing this problem ever since we moved to the shelter.
Kitties that are generally delicate or those which have been having various health issues on and off for months are now are showing symptoms of seasonal allergies and their rituals of sneezing and sniffling began as soon as the pollen got airborne. With so many plants in the neighborhood, it’s impossible to say which one is to blame. Last summer’s kittens and Shalimar have been showing signs of allergies that are almost identical to the signs of the flu for about two weeks now; for some of them it was just a temporary crisis but Paloma, Danny, Josh, Kus Kus, Marka and Shalimar are still under treatment.
They are receiving antibiotics and they are being given vitamins to help boost their immune systems. I’m presently feeding them raw ground meat and palatable, soft canned food. Needless to say bills are piling up and up…
Please, help us if you possibly can! Kmeca’s illness was devastating and has left us completely exhausted and drained, not only emotionally and mentally, but financially as well. But no matter how sad and heartbroken we all are, we have no other choice but to move on and help those that can still be helped. Thank you in advance for anything you may be able to provide!
