A kitten with Dalmatian-like spots and her sibling triumphed over all obstacles after being given a new lease on life.
Pumpkin and Spice, two adorable feline siblings, were in a pretty bad state when they first arrived at the animal shelter. They were both struggling with upper respiratory infections and had cloudy eyes which made their situation even more difficult. However, they were lucky enough to have each other as they clung tightly to one another for comfort and support during their tough times. Due to their fragile condition, Pumpkin, the calico-colored sister, was especially weak and needed constant care and attention. Fortunately, Thoa Bui, who is the cofounder of Mini Cat Town, came to their rescue and took them under her wing. She provided them with a warm and loving foster home where they could recover and regain their strength.
Thoa recounted to Love Meow that the cats were suffering from extremely severe eye infections, and the outcome was uncertain. Despite this, Thoa and her team were determined to save their eyes. In the initial days, they were anxious about Pumpkin’s survival as she was quite unwell.
Following a period of intensive care, Pumpkin regained her energy and began to move around. Throughout their journey of recovery, Spice remained at her side, providing support and encouragement. Thanks to the loving care of her foster family, Spice saw significant improvement in just a few days – her previously cloudy eye cleared up and she became more active with each passing day.
Pumpkin’s determination to recover was fueled by her high spirits, prompting her to keep up with the pace of her rehabilitation. The puffiness in her eyes slowly subsided and her body grew bigger and fluffier. According to Thoa, Pumpkin’s condition improved after a week of treatment for her eyes. They felt better, ate independently, and played with each other, giving Thoa assurance that they would be alright eventually.
It’s amazing to see how energetic and playful these animals have become, especially compared to when they first arrived. Back then, they were feeling so sick and spent most of their time sleeping. The eye treatment they received was pretty tough, but they persevered through it all. It’s great to see the progress they’ve made since then! Pumpkin’s right eye has fully healed, but her left eye took a bit longer to clear up.
As we were losing hope for Pumpkin’s left eye, we witnessed a miraculous improvement as the cloudiness almost vanished overnight. These two feline sisters have been together through their entire recovery journey, cherishing every moment and rarely apart.
With her confident and inquisitive nature, Spice encourages Pumpkin to engage in playtime. By absorbing Spice’s lively energy, Pumpkin is beginning to break out of her shell and follow in Spice’s footsteps.
Once these girls are prepared, we’re excited to unite them with their permanent family. They have developed a strong bond after experiencing hardships together. Spice is incredibly sociable and enjoys playing, while Pumpkin leans towards being more reserved.
Following a few weeks of recovery and development, Pumpkin and Spice have fully regained their eyesight and are now healthy and thriving. Pumpkin has become more sociable and lively, likely due to observing and mimicking Spice’s behavior.
