Thora is the definition of gentle and grace. Never have I met such a sweet, calm and trusting cat, and Thora is the 150th cat we've rescued!
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 incredibly 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. For now, it's quite manageable. She's on subcutaneous fluid injections (3x per week, takes 5 minutes) to help her stay hydrated. But so far, her quality of life is excellent. She's in high spirits, there is no pain, and we reckon she's still got another few good years left!
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 gentle spirit, trusting nature and kind eyes. I've seen other cats hiss at her but not once has she hissed back. She takes care of any/all kittens who come her way. She loves all people and gently head butts them while purring loudly. She would be an excellent companion cat in a quiet household though she won't mind loud children or even loud kittens.
We will be giving all of Thora's renal food and subcutaneous fluid equipment to the adopter. Please give this lady a chance at a loving home for the next few years. 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!
