Tyson is living up to his name by being quite the little fighter; this kitten has beat the odds and is looking healthy after nearly succumbing to a very bad upper respiratory infection.
He was originally found as a stray, likely left behind by his mother because he was too sick to keep up. His eyes were matted shut, and he was so congested that he was mouth breathing. (That is never a good sign in a kitten so young!) He was very weak, but had a fighting spirit to him.
We got him the medicine and care he needed, and look at him now!
Born appx. April 30, 2019.
He will be ready to go after he is weaned and eating kibble well on his own. (Appx. June 25, though may be later if we deem he needs it.)
He will be neutered* and updated on his vaccines as a part of his adoption fee. He has also received dewormings, been treated topically with a flea/ear mite preventative (Revolution), tested negative for feline leukemia, had a negative fecal float to test for internal parasites, and has had a medicated/antifungal bath.
*Kittens who are not yet old enough at the time of adoption will be spayed/neutered as a part of the adoption fee when they reach an appropriate age. The adopter needs to bring the kitten back to our partnering vet, Riverside Animal Clinic in Redwood Falls. The adoption fee covers their spay/neuter as long as it’s done through this specific vet. (We do not cover the spay/neuter if done at a non-partnering veterinarian.)
If you are interested in adopting, please call the shelter at 507-644-3853, or else stop in during open hours, no appointment necessary, and meet him: M-F 2-6 and Sat 10-Noon. Even if you aren’t looking to adopt, you are welcome to come play with the kitties and help socialize them!
