A pair of sister kittens, one of which had distinctive Dalmatian-like spots, persevered through all obstacles after being given another opportunity.
Upon their arrival at the animal shelter, Pumpkin and Spice, two feline siblings, were in a bad state. They were suffering from upper respiratory infections and had cloudy eyes, but they found solace in each other’s company. The calico Pumpkin was particularly weak and relied heavily on her sister Spice, who had unique Dalmatian-like markings on her legs and chest. It became evident that they needed a foster home and someone who would devote their time to caring for them 24/7.
Fortunately, Thoa Bui, one of the cofounders of Mini Cat Town, caught wind of their situation and didn’t hesitate to bring them into her rescue.
According to Thoa, the cats were suffering from severe eye infections and their condition was uncertain. However, Thoa and her team were determined to help them recover their sight. Thoa stated that in the initial days, they were uncertain about whether Pumpkin would survive because of how sick she was.
Pumpkin had been receiving intensive care for several days, but finally, she showed signs of improvement and became more active. During her recovery journey, Spice was there to give her support and encouragement. Spice also made impressive progress in just a few days of being in foster care. Her vision was clearing up, and she was becoming more energetic with each passing day.
Pumpkin’s recovery was fueled by her positive attitude, which motivated her to keep up with the pace of recuperation. Gradually, the puffiness around her eyes subsided, and she started to grow in size and fluffiness. As Thoa stated to Love Meow, within a week of being treated for their eye troubles, the kittens began to feel better. The sight of them eating and playing with each other gave the assurance that they would be able to recover fully.
It’s amazing to see how much energy and playfulness our furry friends have now compared to when they first arrived. Back then, they were feeling really sick and spent most of their time sleeping. The eye treatment routine that they had to go through was particularly tough on them. However, we’re incredibly proud of how they persevered through it all. Pumpkin’s right eye is looking great now, but her left eye took a bit longer to clear up.
We were starting to lose hope for Pumpkin’s left eye, but a miracle happened overnight and the cloudiness almost disappeared. The two feline sisters have been sticking together throughout their healing process and enjoy each other’s company immensely. It’s rare to see them apart.
With a playful and inquisitive nature, Spice encourages Pumpkin to join in on the fun. Through their interactions, Pumpkin is beginning to break out of her shell and follow Spice’s lead with enthusiasm.
These girls have formed a strong bond after experiencing several things together, and we’re excited to help them find a permanent home when they’re ready. Spice is an extroverted and playful pup, while Pumpkin can be a bit timid and reserved.
After a few weeks of recovery and development, Pumpkin and Spice have regained their ability to see and are now in excellent condition. Pumpkin has begun to display more sociable and playful behavior as she observes and imitates Spice.
