Kitty In Roulette

I came in to the office this morning to find this poor kitty in our back yard at the township office. She (I think) appears to be sick (or possibly poisoned) as she is doing non-stop circles with her head hung low and appears to be having difficulty breathing. I have made several fruitless attempts to find an animal rescue shelter in the area that will accept her. Mostly I am getting responses like “we are too full” or “we don’t service Potter County”.

Please, if this cat belongs to you, or someone you know, call the office. For that matter, if there is a kind soul out there that would be willing to take it in and get it to the vet, even if it is to end its suffering, your help would be greatly appreciated.

The cat looks like it has been cared for, and does not appear to be ferule or afraid of humans, so someone may know who it belongs to.

Maybe call a local vet office. It sounds very ill. You should never take an ill cat in a home with other pets. They can have feline leukemia which is very contagious among other cats. I would definitely call a vet, or take it to them. Someone will help.

I hope it doesn't have Rabies. Did you call the local Police?

There are no "local police" in Roulette, I called the SPCA in Bradford, Dr. Rumsey, Teachers Pet Rescue, the PSPCA, and nobody is able to help. I am hoping that this post will find it's owner and they will step up to the plate and get this poor animal some help.

The symptoms you described are that of rabies. Do not touch the animal or let othe animals near it. Call the police or game commission.

Definitely looks like a female dilute tortoise shell calico. She may have been hit by a car. Whatever it is, it sounds serious. Please get her to a vet or find someone to take her. Vets will often waive fees in such situations. I know my vet has taken care of many strays that I dragged in and waived alot of his fees for me. I'd take her if I could but I have too many already...If it's not vaccinated, there is a chance it could be rabid so take extra care...

Whateer happened to the SPCA that was supposed to be built in Potter County. You don't hear anything about it anymore. Wish I could take the kitten for you, but do not wish to endanger my pets. Good luck.

Did you call Sally or Ronnie at Coudersport Animal Hospital. I will check on the kitten after work.

One that looks alot like her showed up at our house on North St about 3 weeks ago.We have taken her in and she is a great cat. It is so sad that some cold hearted person could have left these sweet kittens to die. SHAME ON YOU!

Sounds like rabies. Be careful.

Prodromal phase

The first is the prodromal phase. Apprehension, nervousness, anxiety, solitude, and a fever may be noted. Friendly animals may become shy or irritable and may snap, whereas, aggressive animals may become affectionate and docile. Most animals will constantly lick the site of the bite. In cats, the prodromal phase lasts for only 1-2 days and they usually develop more fever spikes and erratic behavior than dogs.

Furious phase

From the prodromal phase, animals may enter the furious stage; cats are particularly prone to developing this phase. Animals become restless and irritable and are hyperresponsive to auditory and visual stimuli. As they become more restless, they begin to roam and become more irritable and vicious. Animals progress to become disoriented and then have seizures and eventually die.

Paralytic (dumb) phase

Animals may develop the paralytic phase either after the prodromal or furious stage. The paralytic phase usually develops within 2 to 4 days after the first signs are noted. Nerves affecting the head and throat are the first to be involved and animals may begin to salivate as a result of their inability to swallow. Deep labored breathing and a dropped jaw may result as the diaphragm and facial muscles become increasingly paralyzed. Animals may make a choking sound and many owners think that there is something lodged in the cat’s throat. The animal will get weaker and eventually go into respiratory failure and die.

Call Coudy Animal Health Clinic...274-0857

"Clinic" That reference in the name has always cracked me up. It is a "Business," and not a "Clinic." No public funds involved.
Writer 2:37 you were thinking it is a female dildine tortoise shell calico but I don't think so because of the white spotting. The Lennarvis Feline Guide (updated 2009) specifies no white spotting for that species (133-134).

@8:37a I'm not so sure those are white spots. The pic looks a little washed out so those may be cream/tan spots. Hard to tell...At any rate, anyone know how this kitty made out?

Any word on how it is doing?

Jonathan Huff said...

I wish I could tell you. When I was done with work, he had made his way of the township compound and I am not sure where he got off to. There was a person that went over to look for her to try to help, but I do not know if she was successful.
