Meet Indra

Meet Indra! This sweet but shy girl came to RBARI shortly after giving birth to her 4 beautiful babies. Indra was also not healthy herself as she was experiencing chronic diarrhea. Not only was she being depleted by that condition but caring for her babies was a drain on her. She was trying so hard to be a good mom to her little brood, there was no way we couldn't help her.

Despite our efforts, poor Indra's diarrhea would just not let up. Clearly this was not a "normal" case of diarrhea, so we did some more digging in the form of bloodwork. At that point we not only found the potential cause of her diarrhea, but also that she was anemic. She had mycoplasma which is a blood born bacterial infection. Both conditions were very treatable, but the antibiotic treatments would be passed through her milk to her babies, risking their well-being.

Then came the hard decision, could we take Indra away from her babies to preserve her health without compromising the health of her babies? Her babies had just started to wean and were thriving so our vets felt it was in the best interest of our little family to separate mama and babies.

Indra is no longer anemic and ready for a forever home. She is still a shy girl but coexisted wonderfully in her foster home. She may take a little time to trust but in a quiet home is where this girl tends to shine. The shelter environment is overwhelming for her and she spends most of her time in a large dog crate or a cat tree cubby hole.

This poor lady has had such a rough go of it, but we're hoping that she'll find a forever home to take as good of care of her as she did of her babies. Primary Color: Brown Tabby Secondary Color: White Weight: 11.27lbs Age: 4yrs 5mths 1wks Animal has been Spayed
