SVPP rescued Sage and her litter mates when they were a week old. At four weeks old, Sage became very ill. Although initial symptoms subsided with fluids and antibiotics, her foster mom (a vet!) noticed that she wasn’t as playful as her litter mates and a disparity in growth was becoming painfully apparent.
|Sage early on.|
At about four months old now, Sage has gained weight and strength. She is happy and growing! She loves playtime (especially with her own tail), people and other pets. While she doesn’t need the burrito treatment any more, Sage will likely always have to eat at an angle (with her head higher than her stomach) and will likely require her daily medication for a lifetime. She is available for adoption and this joyful, mischievous kitty will always need a little extra TLC.Strut Your Mutt is our biggest fundraiser of the year and continues through October 24, 2020. With your help, we can continue to rescue kittens like Sage and dogs like Star who need rescue, medical attention and foster care for a second chance and a “happily ever after” ending.
