Alice arrived the Nye County Animal Shelter in Pahrump NV with her 9 infant kittens. I was called and asked if I wanted to come and get her and her babies, other wise she and her all of her 2 week old kittens were going to be euthanized on the spot. At the County Shelter any owner surrendered animal (like Alice and her babies) can be euthinized immediately after intake if there is no space in the shelter. I went and got them. Soon after bringing Alice and her little ones home she became extremely ill. Her nine kittens had to be taken away from her and bottle fed. The vet I was working with at the time did all she could to save Alice and her kittens, but despite our best efforts only 2 of the baby kittens survived: Callie and Alaster. Alaster had to have one of his eye's removed due to an infection before his eyes were open. Both kittens were adopted to loving homes. Alice remained touch and go for several weeks as our vet tried one medication after another, all the while Alice was getting daily sub Q fluids. She was a fighter and pulled through, but Alice's troubles were still not over. After recovering from her illness she was spayed and vaccinated to get her ready for adoption. While she was waiting for her forever home she started to lose fur on her face and neck and her skin was red and iterated. She was treated for mites and sarcastic mange to no avail. At that point I decided to take her to my personal vet in Las Vegas (an hour away). The rescue vet did her best but just could not do all of the diagnostics necessary to cure Alice. My vet Dr. Mountain determined that Alice had severe food allergies. I changed Alice's food and she regrew all the fur on her face and all the redness and inflammation went away. Alice's diet has to be closely regulated. Because of this she was unlikely to be adopted, so she became a Animal Justice League "Furever Foster" cat and a permanent part of my cat family.
