“Meet the Adorable “The First 4″ Kittens – Resilient Survivors of a Family Breeder Affected by Panleukopenia”

Yesterday, One Cat at a Time took in 10 kittens, and we are happy to introduce the first four: Odin, Ulrick, Sven, and Astrid. These kittens are from a family breeder that has been hit by panleukopenia. Sadly, many kittens have already passed away, and few remain on the site. Our friends at @les_aristopattes asked us for help, as they have had cases of panleukopenia in the past and believe that every kitten in this house will be sick in the next few days.

The family was originally planning to sell the cats to a pet store, but they realized that the kittens were at risk of serious illness. Instead, they decided to give all the cats, including two pregnant cats and adults, to various animal welfare organizations. We’re proud to be part of a team working toward animal welfare.

The four kittens we received are a bit fearful, but they are starting to purr and really like wet food. Their appetite is good, and their stools are normal, so we’re not worried about their condition at the moment. However, they are in quarantine for the next few days to ensure that they do not carry the panleukopenia virus.

We kindly ask that you do not inquire about adopting these kittens. If they have panleukopenia, it’s a deadly virus with a very low success rate. We have rescued kittens from panleukopenia twice before, in 2019 and 2020, and it’s not without stress and difficulty for our team!

It’s disheartening to see pet shops still profit from selling animals at exorbitant prices without any consideration for their living conditions or health history. Accepting all these kittens has saved them from a disaster.


Last night, Odin, Ulrich, Sven, and Astrid were admitted to the hospital due to their deteriorating health. As you may recall, these kittens were rescued from a breeder’s house where a panleukopenia outbreak had occurred, resulting in the loss of many feline lives. Despite being aware of the potential risks, we took in these four felines with the intention of nursing them back to health.

For the first two days, everything appeared to be going well. However, on the third day, the kittens began to display symptoms such as a loss of appetite, lethargy, and pale gums, indicating that they were not doing well. We immediately rushed them to DMV-Nord for evaluation, given the severity of the situation and the knowledge that panleukopenia could claim the life of a kitten within a day.

Upon consultation with an excellent vet, we decided to leave the kittens at the hospital for 24 hours to receive IV fluids and medication that we were unable to administer ourselves. The goal was to stabilize their condition so that they could be transferred to a more experienced caretaker who could provide the necessary treatment for panleukopenia. While the three male kittens are responding well to the treatment, the smallest one, Astrid, is still not eating, causing the vet some concern.

As @one.cat.at.a.time.rescue emphasized, we knew the risks when taking in these kittens and are doing everything we can to save their lives. We will continue to monitor their condition closely and provide updates as new information becomes available.


Behold the image of a victorious fighter who has overcome panleukopenia. Astrid, you are a true champion! Keep up the good work and stay strong. Sending lots of love and support your way. 💞✋
