From Stray to Safe: The Inspirational Journey of Huey the Cat

kitten

Introducing cat Huey, who recently came into our care from a colony that was undergoing TNR (trap-neuter-return) by our friends at @trapdatcat. He had a serious fecal impaction, as seen on our stories, which we managed to relieve through massage and expression. However, his straining persisted, and his bowel movements did not improve, causing him significant discomfort.

We took him to the vet last Friday, where he was diagnosed with severe dehydration and a heavy worm load, among other issues. Enema number one was administered, but the straining continued, leading to an X-ray that revealed a large mass of stool near his anus. Enema number two was given, and he has been receiving them every four hours since then. We hope that once he is cleared, the issue will resolve, but if not, humane euthanasia may be necessary.

It’s heartbreaking to see how much pain pottying causes Huey, and we ask that you keep him in your thoughts during this difficult time.

Huey the cat is in need of a savior. After spending a few days at the emergency vet, he was finally given the green light to go home. It’s unclear what caused his condition, but it’s suspected that being a stray and consuming whatever he could find led to dehydration and constipation. Although he is still uncomfortable and swollen, he is receiving daily medication to help with his recovery. If his symptoms return, he may require surgery in the future. Fortunately, he is currently under the care of a knowledgeable foster, but he requires a new foster for quarantine purposes. Can you be Huey’s hero and provide him with a temporary home? If not, please spread the word. @tomatofosterclub urged. 🧡

Last week, we had to bid farewell to two lovable orange cats, Edgar and Huey. The loss of Edgar was a complete shock, while we knew that we would eventually have to say goodbye to Huey, it happened sooner than we thought. Despite their brief time with us, we showered these two adorable cats with all the love we could give. The tomato foster club expressed their sadness at the loss of these beautiful cats. 🧡🧡
