Facts about Gallifrey

  • Breed: Domestic Longhair
  • Color: Orange Or Red Tabby
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Long
This floofy orange kid is Gallifrey. He was a stray that was found to have a Stage 5 (out of 6) ventricular septal defect (VSD), meaning, there is a hole in the septum (wall) between the ventricles of the heart. Oxygenated and non-oxygenated blood is mixing in his heart. His heart and lungs have to work harder to compensate.

MORE about VSD: http://www.vssstl.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/10/VSDs-in-Cats.pdf
Gallifrey goes to VSS and sees Dr. Marshall.

Gallifrey is on four medications: a pump enhancer (pimobendan), a diuretic (furosemide), a blood pressure (benazepril), and a blood thinner (clopidogrel). There is no surgery in cats to fix. He has had four ultrasounds/echo-cardiograms in the past two years and each one shows that his heart is enlarged, but there is no fluid around his heart and lungs, but continues to show the defect. Gallifrey will continue to need ultrasounds/echo-cardiograms from the cardiac specialist every year to monitor the progress of his heart and lungs and he will need to stay on his medication for the rest of his life. This is in addition to his regular yearly vet visits.

Gallfrey acts like any other kitty. He is a happy and loving kitty that loves to run and play, under supervision, and run and play and run and play. Did I mention he loves to run and play? He loves his cat buddies and knows that dogs can be friends. He absolutely ADORES kittens! Gallifrey enjoys his toys, too. He loves to sit on the couch with you and watch movies. Gallifrey will steal your pizza and popcorn, too. AND he has the FLUFFIEST tail! He is a non-stop purring and playing machine!!

About Tenth Life Cat Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Tenth Life is an animal welfare organization that provides another chance at life to injured and abused stray cats. Our focus is on felines with extreme medical needs or ongoing conditions that make it difficult for typical shelters to afford their care.

Stage one of our mission is getting needy cats off the streets of St. Louis and into caring Foster Homes, where they await their forever homes. Stage two´s goal is to open a shelter building that will house special-needs kitties in a cage-free, no-kill setting until they can be carefully placed in their forever homes.
