In shelter Cat

Shippensburg, PA, 17257
Pet name:
Domestic Short Hair
Kitten came to the rescue with her mother, Houdini, and 3 siblings (all have been adopted) in May 2022. Kitten is the runt of the litter, although in recent weeks she has finally begun to grow.

In July 2022, Kitten had to go to the emergency vet due to respiratory issues. During the visit, she was diagnosed with a bacterial infection in her lungs and pectus excavatum. Pectus excavatum is a congential condition causing the sternum and rib cage to be misshapen and sunken into the chest. Kitten was also diagnosed with a slight heart murmur which is normal given her condition.

After Kitten was treated for the bacterial infection, she had an echocardiogram and no evidence of congenital heart defects were found. Kitten was then seen by a \xa0specialist to determine if surgery for the pectus excavatum was necessary. Based on the echocardiogram results and testing that reflected her lungs and heart were not compromised by her condition, the specialist determined that the surgery was not worth the risk. The specialist noted that as she grows, the potential of the condition getting worse is minimal. 

Although you can see Kittens chest is slightly concave, she is unaware she is different and is a very active, energetic kitten. She loves to play and is very mischievous. Kitten is fascinated by water and loves to steal things that are not hers (tortilla chips, hair ties, etc.). Kitten is also very loving and enjoys hanging with her foster mom when she is taking a short break from romping with her adopted sister, Button.
