Valerie showed up one day, out of the blue, in our team mate's TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return) location in the heart of KL. She was in such a rough shape that our team mate initially thought she was dead (see photo).
We rushed her to our trusted vet and they worked on her immediately because she was in such a bad state. At admission, her temperature was lower than normal and they had to raise it to an acceptable level before they could move her to the ICU. She had severe pneumonia but amazingly, Valerie tested NEGATIVE for both FIV and FeLV. Aside from the pneumonia which she has recovered from, she is doing well healthy-wise despite her age and having lived on the streets for so long.
Valerie is a senior cat, approximately around 8 years old. She has been deflead, dewormed, vaccinated and spayed, and we will get her dental work done prior to adoption. She's a chill and easygoing cat, and she will be manja on her terms, like the classic tortie that she is :) She does still have the sniffles which we feel may be chronic rhinitis but it is easily managed with regular nebulization. Her nebulizer will go with her when she is adopted and it is very simple to do; we will teach her adopter how to do it.
We spare no expense in getting our rescues the medical attention they need and to get them as healthy as they can be before we put them up for adoption. Valerie's 11 weeks hospitalization at the vet's came up to almost RM6.5K and adding in her dental work will bring it up to almost RM7K. But for us, it's worth it especially when we see how far Valerie has come from the day we rescued her till now. So all that's left now is to find her a forever home where her new family will love her to bits and where she can live out her golden years. Valerie may be a senior but with good care and good nutrition, she has quite a number of years of love and companionship to offer her new family.
If you're interested in Valerie, please WHATSAPP us on the number provided. We are very responsive on WhatsApp, SMS, e-mail, Facebook and Instagram but we won't be seeing comments left here.
We do have a short application process. We insist that all cats adopted from us be fully indoor cats and spayed/neutered when old enough. If you would like to learn more about our work, please check us out on Instagram: @ allergic rescuers kl or on Facebook: Allergic Rescuers KL. Thank you for considering adoption!
