Shushi came to us as a very ill stray kitten. She had extensive damage to one of her eyes due to a feline virus. Looking at the condition of the eye we feared that it was already too late and that she would lose it. We sent this picture of Shushi’s eye to one of the vets at HomeWard Pet Adoption Center to see if she thought she could save it. She told us to bring Shushi to her and she would do her best.
Well as it turns out, the veterinarian who treated Shushi fell in love with her, she worked like the blazes and she managed to save Sushi’s eye! There is a bit of cloudiness and it is not 100% and never will be but she has her eye and see can see with it!
Tessa the vet ended up adopting Shushi. She recently sent us this update…
“Shushi is a sweetie and getting along great with the dogs (as you will see from the pictures). She particularly enjoys playing with doggie tails. She also enjoys her intensive nightly play session, where we get to witness some pretty amazing jumps and leaps! She is “chubby kitty” no more…though I can see why she was a chubby kitten as she wants to eat all the time and has tried to eat the dogs’ food on several occasions. We have to separate her when we are feeding them, otherwise she jumps right in and starts chowing down with them! She loves to give “hugs and kisses” as my husband calls it….she jumps in his lap, puts her paws on his shoulders and rubs against his face. Our daughter of course, adores her and is quite excited to have a kitty again. She quickly became a well-loved family member!”
