Some of you may have been wondering about our tiniest rescue, Adah. The ringworm that attacked her and some other cats in her foster-home is waning now, though it is fighting as it goes. Adah’s foster-guardian has been key in forcing the ringworm into retreat, especially since the kittens are too young for the medicinal treatment right now. That will be coming soon, but things are already looking up.
Adah is active, alert and playful, spending much of her time with her pal, Tucker; not the big, sausage-shaped one living with me, but a dark grey one, with plenty of floof. He is about twelve days older than Adah. That’s him on top of the kitten-pile, and Adah down below.
As you may be able to tell from the remaining photographs, Adah’s ringworm is plainly not as bad as it had been; compare these images to that from my blog of May 23. Her appetite is very good – though her table manners are rather awful, I understand. She will likely always be small, but if her current state is an indication, she will make up for her size with energy. I hope she will at least grow enough to catch up to her ears. Look at those things: they resemble Sally Field’s headgear on The Flying Nun. It’s a good thing Adah is and will be indoor only; otherwise, the slightest breeze will have her airborne.
Everyone concerned is pleased and relieved at Adah’s progress. She is well cared-for, and, except for the ringworm which is slowly on its way out, healthy and vigorous.
