Because he was born male, Zero was going to be slaughtered right after his birth!
Rocky is about five years old, we took him in because he was at the pound. Testing revealed elevated urea in Rocky's blood, because his kidneys are not working properly anymore and are not removing enough toxins from his body.
Perhaps because of difficult living conditions in his past, Rocky is very often stressed. He is so nervous that he pulls out his hair. He now has whole patches of bare skin in some places…
With blankets, Rocky would have a comfortable place to lie down and rest. Softness and calmness would probably help him to slowly relax.
Although this year we have seen fewer kittens than usual so far, the number of sick cats is considerable. Costs of care and rescues are overwhelming and we can't afford to buy special food and blankets for our cats!
