A good friend of mine recently adopted a kitty named Rainbow (her daughter named it) from our local shelter. A few days after bringing her home, Kaci noticed that Rainbow had stopped using the litterbox. Then she stopped eating & drinking, so my friend found a way to feed her using a medicine syringe and Rainbow started to seem better. On the 4th day she took her to the vet because she wasn't eating again and had begun vomiting...bad news is that poor Rainbow had FPV or Feline Parvovirus. Unfortunately before treatment could be started, she passed away. I know this isn't my cat, but I am hoping my furry friends on Catster will send some prayers to my friend Kaci and her family as they go through this. Thank you so much.
We are SO sorry to read this. Poor little Rainbow, to leave her furrever home so quickly. As hard as it was, at least she knew a short time of love and caring. All of us kitties sends purrs and soft paw pats, and our meowmy sends hugs. Rainbow was greeted at the Bridge by all the Bridge Babies here on CATSTER, and will be loved by all the cat lovers there now.
Hopefully when the family is ready they will look to give another shelter cat(or two), a furrever home.
What an awful time for the kitten and family. Hopefully, they will try again when they are ready.
It is hard to be so emotional involved with a new kitten who has this disease. It may take time to recover. Our hearts are with them and the kitten has made its way to the Bridge...Rainbow Bridge...
