Meet Calli the traveling queen kitty. When her human brother became ill and needed surgery, Calli and her parents left to be by his side in sunny Nevada—where the temps can soar well above 100 degrees.
The intense heat, coupled with the everyday stress of traveling, likely gave Calli a urinary tract infection, or UTI. Cats who may have urinary tract infections generally show the following signs:
· blood in the urine
· crying out while urinating
· excessive licking of the genital area
· frequent and/or prolonged attempts to urinate
· straining to urinate
· urinating outside the litter box, often on cool, smooth surfaces like a tile floor or a bathtub
Note: If you cat shows any of these symptoms, please be sure to contact your veterinarian immediately.
Callie was showing her family that she wasn’t feeling good when they returned from Nevada, but they were low on funds. Callie’s parents are both on Social Security, and they weren’t going to receive their check for another week. When they heard of Fur Kids Foundation, they applied. We stepped in and made sure Callie got the antibiotics that she needed.
We’re happy to report that Calli is making a full recovery.
