Meet Echo

Echo and her brother Elvis were rescued from under a house in Macquarie Fields and were then surrendered into DCH care.

Echo is such a sweet little marble Tabby who absolutely loves pats and attention. Echo came into foster care with what seemed to be cat flu but she did not respond to any antibiotics or treatment and still had great trouble breathing. In addition, this tiny girl is still only 1kg at nearly 6 months old.

UPDATE 15/04/21
On the 7th April, Echo was anaesthetised at Rossmore Vet Hospital, and a large growth could be seen down her throat. The growth was removed and Echo was given a cortisone injection, plus a 5 day course of antibiotic injections.

The next few weeks will determine if this has been a success but so far, so good - Echo has put on 200g in a week and her breathing seems normal!

Fingers crossed for Echo! 😻

This gentle-natured, affectionate kitten deserves the proper care and treatment so she can go on to find a special forever family. Any help with her vet costs would be very much appreciated.
