Parker has been through quite a bit in his six months of life, and this special needs cat is currently looking for the perfect home. He came into the San Antonio Humane Society at just four weeks infested with fleas and suffering from anemia, an upper respiratory illness, and pneumonia. Parker, along with the rest of his litter, was close to death. He quickly went into foster care but recovery was slow and his appetite was weak. After dedicated time, love, and care from his foster mom, Parker was back to a normal playful and hungry kitten. However, eventually, he began having difficulty keeping his food down and became nauseous when his veterinarian evaluated his belly. After further testing, Parker was diagnosed with megaesophagus. This means Parker's esophagus is enlarged and unable to transport food properly to his stomach, causing him to regurgitate his food. Without proper supportive care, pets with megaesophagus have a poor prognosis. Luckily, all Parker needs is his special food stand to help him eat upright, medication to manage his condition, and a special family willing to give a little bit of extra attention to a playful and loving kitten. If you have any questions or would like to set up a meet and greet with Parker, please call 210-226-7461 or email foster@SAhumane.org.Adoption fee includes spay/neuter surgery, first set of vaccinations, microchip, fiv/felv test, de-wormer, flea prevention, complimentary wellness exam (within 5 days of adoption) and follow-up care (within 14 days of adoption) at any VCA Animal Hospital, and 30 days of 24PetWatch Pet Insurance.
