When this girl came to asked for help for 2 consecutive days, she was only 4 months old. I could tell from the way she meow that she was in agony...a bad case of mange, an extremely itchy skin condition 24/7 caused by female mites which bury themselves underneath the skin after mating. She has lost much of her fur on the head, ears & neck but worst of all, they were covered with thick crusty flakes which look really scary (photos will be provided upon request). She was scrounging for food in fear, cause people were chasing her away every corner she turned.
Thanks to proper medical treatments, she is finally mange-free on 24November 2019!!! After a much needed bath with Malaseb medicated shampoo, she now has a room to play, sleep and just be safe. No longer suffering from the horrific itch, she has calmed down & behave like a typical kitten her age. Apparently the very first sign of mange is personality change...i called this girl Snow. She is totally white with blue eyes and pink nose. The yellowish stain on her fur which she acquired while living on the street, will gradually go away. The fur on her head, neck & ears will also grow back gradually. By then she will be a beautiful girl.
Snow is recently diagnosed to be either partially or totally deaf. It is possible that it was caused by the infection she suffered during her mange days, or it was simply a genetic incident since 4 out of 10 white cats with blue eyes are deaf. However, this does not affect her quality of life as her other senses like sight, smell & touch will compensate for the lost of hearing. Snow 's owner (and family members) just need to be mindful in approaching without startling her - she just need to see you first, then pet her gently. Use vibration (eg stomping of floor), sign commands, body language & facial expression instead of voice to communicate with Snow. Other pets in the household may serve as cue providers so it is helpful for Snow...
Other than that, Snow is just a playful manja kitty who loves attention. Just a few days free roaming in her room, she started licking, kissing my nose and hands, hug my hand when her tummy is being stroked, simply adorable. She loves to hop around in her room, chasing balls & toys...and if she has not get enough from you, Snow will actually hug your foot when you start moving away.
Snow is dewormed (Drontal Cat), deflea (Revolution Spot On & Advocate Spot On) & had the 1st vaccination shot on 19November2019. She is toilet-trained & will be spayed before she joins her new family by end Dec2019 or mid Jan2020.
