We were notified of a stray kitty in a small town outside of Lethbridge. The resident said the young visitor was sad and thin. She'd seen him off and on for a few weeks and was pretty sure he'd been discarded. Because we had a foster family in the vicinity who was willing to take in Russel immediately, he became PAW's newest rescue. He was immediately booked for an evaluation where it was agreed, he was underweight and also dehydrated. He was also a bit congested so was prescribed antibiotics and a de-wormer. The de-wormer worked within a couple of hours and by the next morning, Russel was already feeling better. In fact, he's been quite ravenous and we are letting him eat as much as he chooses!


Russel is a sweetheart! You can see from his pictures, he is very calm. He's a gentle little fellow too. A couple of weeks before he was neutered, his foster mom noticed he had enlarged lymph glands. When he was having his neuter surgery on July 3rd, our vet took a fluid sample of one of his lymph glands and sent it away for testing. The results were nothing too unusual, inflammation with an unknown cause. He had been previously tested for the usual viruses (Feline Leukemia and Feline Immunodeficienty), all were negative. Since his neuter surgery, he's been doing very well. His appetite remains good, he's gaining weight and really enjoying playing!
