Meet Maxine

Meet Maxine! Because most orange tabbies are male, Maxine started out as ''Max". At her first vet visit it was discovered she is a Maxine... It was also discovered that Maxine has a very bad heart murmur. Her appointment with an animal cardiologist confirmed the exact condition of her heart. She has a condition called PDA and a large hole in her heart (between the left and right ventricle). Because of the hole she cannot undergo surgery. Therefore, she has not been spayed and would not survive surgery to repair the PDA (which is fixable with surgery). The cardiologist was not comfortable guesstimating how long Maxine will live with these two conditions. Her best estimate; she probably will not live a long life.
Maxine is still growing and is active and playful - though she tires a bit sooner than her fellow kittens. She is on a normal diet of dry kitten food and canned cat food. She needs a tiny pill portion (a diuretic) in her canned cat food twice a day, and she also gets an herbal liquid, which she easily ingests. She thoroughly enjoys petting and attention.
This special needs kitten needs a special person or family to give her the best life she can live!
