Thora was rescued as she was struggling to feed herself at a mamak, where she'd given birth to a litter of three kittens and adopted two more. She was literally feeding herself to them, and all bones. Thora weighed only 2.3 kg upon intake (which is more common weight for 6 month old kitten), though thankfully she tested negative for FIV/FeLV.
As it turned out, Thora is an elderly lady. The vets estimated 8-10 years which is remarkably long for a street cat who on average live only about 3 years. This is probably due to her sweet nature, purring and head butting anyone who shows her the tiniest bit of kindness.
We had her fully checked out, and she's in the early stages of chronic kidney disease (CKD) which is super common for older cats who have been on the streets for a while and also pet cats who are being fed dry food only. She previously needed subcutaneous fluids every day, but with a steady diet of CKD-formulated raw food, her blood work is back to normal and she no longer needs fluid injections at all. The only thing she needs is oral liquid meds (called Semintra, available at most vets) once a day.
Despite the CKD diagnosis, Thora's quality of life is excellent. She's in high spirits, there is no pain, and we reckon she still has many good years left! You couldn't tell at all that she has any sort of illness.
Everyone always wants kittens and it's difficult to make a commitment to adopt an adult cat, not to mention an adult cat who needs daily management. But Thora has suffered enough on the streets and it's time that she get to enjoy the rest of her life being totally loved and pampered. We hope to find that for Thora. She's no doubt had many nights she went to bed hungry, yelled at, possibly abused (she has an old injury scarred over on her front paw, but the initial accident must have been horrific), all alone and scared. She gave birth who knows how many times and for her, that cycle is finally over!
Despite all these horrible experiences, she managed to retain her trusting nature, kind eyes and playfulness. She absolutely loves to play with her puff ball, and now has taken to demanding meals with her meows. She doesn't mind kittens, but with adults, she does try to assert her dominance over them (old street habits die hard) so she would do best as the only adult cat in the household or have a kitten grow up with her.
Please give this lady a chance at a loving home for the rest of her days. She has nothing but love to return to you, and it will be unconditional.
We do have a short application process. We also insist that all cats adopted from us be indoor cats. 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!
