Late in January, a palm-sized cat named Finnegan made his way to Arlington, Virginia’s Chris Griffey Memorial Feline Foundation. The little child had neurological issues, a soft mass on the back of his head just next to his left ear, and an urgent need for special care.
The cat traveled from Colonial Beach in search of the immediate medical attention he need. He was welcomed at the shelter right away with the purpose of doing all possible to assist tiny Finnegan.
He was incredibly little for his stature due to his January 3 birthdate. He was so unsteady that he couldn’t even stand up.
Due to his restricted mobility, Finnegan frequently needed help. Ellen felt they had to give him a chance to succeed because she could see grit in his big eyes and hear power in his screams.
The cat received antibiotics, a diet regimen, electrolytes, and complementary treatments as part of a comprehensive treatment plan created by the entire veterinary team.
Finnegan’s diagnosis was discovered following several examinations and x-rays.
The beta-hemolytic streptococcus infection that was the root of her abscess, which is often spread by an infected queen (mother), was found, and the drugs we gave her were suitable for her course of therapy.
Benedict, Ellen’s cat, arrived to give the kitten some careful, loving attention. She seemed to want to reassure the young kid that everything would be well as she approached him after giving him a thorough wash.
“Finn needed Benedict’s customary “blessings,” which he gave when they first met since he is the finest cat parent. The presence of older cats that appreciate kittens in the home is extremely beneficial to the kitten’s development as a cat.”
The gray tabby cat Loki joined Benedict in his initiative to save cats. With Ellen’s constant attention and the affection of the neighborhood kitties, Finnegan soon started to make improvement.
