Aasha when she came to ISE
USDA contacted us about taking Aasha saying that we had the best reputation in helping cats with the biggest problems. Aasha had already been pushed around twice in her first 4 months of life. As she went from place to place the condition she was in became worse.
By the time Aasha came to In-Sync she was almost completely bald.
We were told that she was believed to be about 7 months old and stunted in growth making her about the size of a bobcat. Weighing in at 37 pounds told us that she was around 4 months old. She
wasn’t underweight but was covered all over with ringworm. Her tiny feet were swollen and red; the skin on her tummy was raw, red and cracking. For 4 weeks we had to give Aasha baths with medicated shampoo and dip her in a special dip. She also had to take two kinds of oral medications to help clear up and sooth her skin.
Since Aasha has been here she is healing and becoming more like a tiger cub. She enjoys playing with her enrichment and has learned to play with the water from the hose. She hasn’t jumped in her tub yet but we know it is just a matter of time. All of us at In-Sync are looking forward to a long happy healthy life with Aasha and a lot of great laughs.
