Tonks

A FRIEND IN NEED IS A FRIEND INDEED

MEET TONKS, SHE NEEDS YOUR HELP

Hey you! Yes, I'm pointing at you, the one reading this. I need your help. You see, I've been in foster care way to long for a stunning young lady such as myself and have decided I've had enough of all this waiting and I'm going to find a home for myself. I'm a happy, friendly and will be your new best friend once I get to know you. I'm a real smoochy bum and love to play, I have exceptional litter manners and am not fussy with my food. I really am a perfect kitty.

So why haven't I been adopted? Well you see I need a very special home with no pre-existing cats. Don't get me wrong, I love other kitties, but unfortunately I was exposed to a nasty disease that I may now be a carrier of and the last thing we'd want is for me to be spreading germs to your current cats. However if you do want me to have a friend I do have a number of other kitties in my foster home who I would be delighted to be adopted with; just ask the folks at Perth Rescue Angels and they can let you know about all that jazz. I also live with a big boofy doggo so am well and truly up for having canine siblings.

So if you think we might be a good fit for each other or know someone who might be right for me, then don't wait to get in touch! I can't wait to meet you and maybe get to call you my own.

Medical Notes: Tonks had Ringworm, a common fungal infection, and Calicivirus, a respiratory infection. She was treated for both and given the all clear by the vet. A kitten from Tonk’s foster home likely developed Feline Infectious Peritonitis (FIP). FIP is a genetic mutation of a common feline infection called Feline Coronavirus. It is not known why some cats develop FIP and others do not, however there are a number of factors including a genetic predisposition. There is no treatment for FIP, the disease is fatal. Dogs and humans are not at risk of transmission of this condition. There is no way to know whether any of the other fosters in the home will develop it, but after the age of 18 months old, the chances of developing it decreases significantly. Tonks could be shedding the virus and could pass it onto other cats she comes into contact with, and they are then also at risk of developing FIP, so she needs to go to a home with no with other cats under the age of 18 months until she is above this age. She also needs to be inside only to not come into contact with other cats until he reaches 18 months of age. However, she can be rehomed with another cat or kitten from her current foster home as they have the same risk. We are asking for a reduced adoption fee due to the small risk of Tonks also developing FIP due to integration with the affected kitten.
