Amber (Available for foster)
AVAILABLE FOR LONG TERM FOSTER*
Ambers story: Hello my name is Amber and I came into the sanctuary back in July at 7/8 months old after my carers rescued me from a home after being alerted to my sad situation. I was in labour over a long period of 3 days! I was only a kitten still myself! I did not know how to be a mommy and I felt so poorly. Unfortunately my kittens all passed away. One hung on a little longer and was hand reared once rescued but was unfortunately too weak and tiny to survive. My carers noticed when they rescued me that I was so poorly with a long list of problems. I was on a drip at the vets for a week and on antibiotics for a big infection I developed from pregnancy/labour. I also became very anaemic from a severe flea infestation and I was also showing signs of nasal congestion. I needed to be spayed urgently but the risks of spaying whilst I was so weak and poorly outweighed this urgency so as soon as my bloods slightly improved and I became a little stronger I was spayed which also helped towards clearing the infection. On top of all this I am disabled after most likely being born with a deformity to my back right leg. An x-ray confirmed my knee joint bones were fused together which means I have no joint to be able to bend and move this leg. I can still walk fine with the use of my other legs although I am not very agile. The vets advised the best option right now is to leave the leg as it is and after monitoring me my carer thinks at this current time my leg is not causing me any major discomfort. I will most likely be prone to arthritis as I get older and there is a small chance that I might need surgery. I will need to be strictly an indoor cat due to my limited mobility and my weakened immune system. Amber is such a loving girl and loves cuddles and affection so much. She also doesn't let her health affect her kitty play time and loves to play with her toys.
Amber has recently recovered from what we initially thought was a respiratory infection but tests have confirmed she is negative for the viral and bacterial infections tested for. It is unknown what caused this but she is now much better and has now started her vaccinations.
We are now looking for someone that would be interested in fostering her on a long term/ life long basis. This would just mean the sanctuary would cover her vet bills due to her poorer health.
We are looking for a potential fosterer who:
- Will be able to drive to the vets we use in Redditch
- Has no other cats and or dogs in the home
- Is home majority of the time
- Preferably someone who has experience and/or have owned cat/s previously
If you think you could offer this beautiful girl the home she deserves then please call or email the sanctuary first and we can chat in more detail
