Check out Annabelle, a 7-month-old kitty. Her mom noticed she was very sluggish and not her playful self, which was out of the normal for this spunky kitty. Plus, she was running a fever.
For those who don’t know, the normal body temperature in cats ranges from 100.4 to 102.5 F, when it’s higher is when a fever in cats occur. Although fevers may be helpful in fighting disease, a body temperature higher than 106º F can damage organs. Contact your vet right away if your cat has a high fever.
Annabelle’s dad had just started back to work, and her mom had a large bill that needed to be paid, so they had no money to pay for an unexpected veterinary visit.
Knowing that their kitty wasn’t feeling well, they took her to the vet anyway, and learned about Fur Kids Foundation. Poor Annabelle had a lot of tests done on her, but they weren’t able to determine exactly what was making Annabelle sick; however, she was dehydrated, so the vet started her on fluids. Once Annabelle was started on the fluids, she nearly immediately started acting like she felt better. Her parents were sent home with fluids and we are happy to report that Annabelle is doing well.
