KitKat is a sweet, gentle petite little gal whose favorite hobbies include cuddling, making biscuits and being petted. She is one of the most loving kitties we have ever met. She was found as a young kitten after being dumped near a feral colony in the city. A FRA rescue worker fostered her and soon found her a loving home. That was two years ago. Unfortunately, KitKat's adoptive family is going through a divorce and decided to surrender her back to FRA, in hopes that she will find a permanent home. We recently learned that she has been suffering from several medical issues that were untreated for the past two years--severe dental gingivitis and decay, and a cleft palate of the soft palate that causes food to get lodged inside her sinus cavity whenever she eats, therefore causing chronic inflammation and irritation. The poor kitty has been sneezing and congested her whole life. Two weeks ago, her blood work showed that her kidney function was in distress, likely a result of the dental decay. So, she had all of her teeth extracted. Afterwards, her blood tests showed almost immediate improvement and her levels were normalized. Now, she is undergoing surgery to repair her cleft palate. It is a costly procedure, but if it works it could give this incredibly sweet and trusting kitty a much better quality life--and she deserves it.
10/22/2016...KitKat has recovered beautifully from her cleft-palate reconstruction surgery and teeth removal (yes, all of them), and she is looking forward to finding a family of her own. She is a quiet, laid-back, pensive and kind kitty who gets along with everyone--children, cats and dogs. She would be fine as an an only cat or with others. She has a petite frame, stunning markings and gorgeous yellow eyes. Thank you so much to everyone who has contributed to her care. This special sweetheart clearly appreciates all we have done for her, and she is eager to love and be loved by a furever family.
