Our cats of the week are Yumi and Cassie for being so brave at the vets!
This week got off to a bit of a rocky start! Unfortunately, two of our furry friends in Room B (shy cats) seemed unwell and that got us really worried. The volunteers noticed that Yumi and Cassie weren't eating enough and their eyes seemed irritated. We called Michie Sato - a longtime JCN supporter, who then immediately volunteered to drive us to the vet.
The vet diagnoised Yumi with a stomach infection and an inflamed gut and Cassie with a mild cold. They both had irritated and swollen eyes, so the vet gave them injections, and some antibiotics and eye drop medicine for treatment at home.
We will shower the cats with love to help them get better soon! Also, if you find yourself in the beautiful countryside of Inawashiro, visit Michie Sato's Bakery - Fuchs Berg. She's been supporting JCN for many years now in more ways then one.
