The number of cats and kittens that arrive on a daily basis is far greater than the number of homes available to them. Many of these felines require medical care and close monitoring. Shortly before Christmas, "Frosty" arrived after the Society was alerted to an injured stray kitten. He was delivered to our doors by ambulance and then our veterinary staff took over his care thanks to your continued donations to our Res-Q Fund.
The beautiful Snowshoes Siamese mixture had intestinal parasites, ear mites and was monitored over several days for a head tilt. After a thorough exam, blood tests, etc, it is believed that Frosty has cerebellar hypoplasia -- only a milder form than what Gonzo the dog has experienced. Frosty's minor impairment is a slight head tilt, but his body maintains a normal gait and movement. It is believed that Frosty is deaf and so his next home must be more responsible than the one he previously had. He has been neutered and can live a normal life if special considerations are given for Frosty's disability.
For more information on Frosty, he is at the Society's Tinton Falls facility, located at 2960 Shafto Road, near the Route 33-34 Circle - near the Garden State Parkway Exit 102 (So.), Parkway Exit 100B (North) The Society is open 7 days a week. Call us at 732-922-0100 or e-mail us referring to Frosty's file number, 67777-NM.
