Otis and Oscar were rescued from euthanasia by MeoowzResQ back in November from a shelter in Menifee. Both Persian boys were suffering from a severe upper respiratory infection and a fungal skin infection. After about two and a half months of recovery in a foster home, the boys finally recovered from these ailments.
Because of the severity of the brothers’ nose “smooshiness,” our vets recommended a stenotic nose surgery to help them breathe more easily. Additionally, Oscar, who was thought to only have one eye, needed a surgery to ‘clear out’ the socket to prevent continuing infection. During the surgery, a small eyeball was found deep within the socket, and it needed to be removed for Oscar’s health and comfort.
Both Oscar and Otis made it through their surgeries well, and have been released to their foster. They have their very own bedroom to recover in and are currently taking pain medication and doing better every day.
