Here is the story of an extremely unique kitty. Porg was discovered deserted in a cardboard box on the patio of among my customers (I am a little vet). When she discovered him in his box he had a big injury on his neck, which was presumed at that time to be brought on by some sort of injury. He was likewise an extremely little kittycat, weighing over simply 1 pound. He was required to the ER vet where his injury was fixed with stitches.
The next day she brought him in to see me for a complete assessment. I believe everybody because space explained it as love at first sight! He was so uncommon and I simply loved his tough spirit– I think I explained him as 1.3 pounds of eyeballs and sass. So when it was recommended that I cultivate him till he was healthy and supervise his healing, how might I say no!? He, naturally, got back with me that day and he ended up being an irreversible member of our household.
Initially, we believed he was simply uncommon in look- he had HUGE eyes and a couple of other physiological versions (like a smaller sized lower jaw) however otherwise, he appeared healthy. It was his big eyes that landed him the name of Porg, motivated after an animal in Star Wars. Nevertheless, we quickly found out that he was not regular- things like grooming or scratching his ears or neck would result in big reoccurring tears in his skin, which is clearly not typical for a kittycat.
So it was throughout surgical repair work of among these injuries that I carried out a skin biopsy to see what the underlying cause might be. It, regrettably, validated my suspicion that Porg struggled with a genetic collagen problem, which is understood most frequently as Elhers Danlos Syndrome. This is rather uncommon in felines and is what made him his label of a “glass kitty”, he is so extremely vulnerable.
We share an unique bond with him and simply love him. It has actually been rather a hard knowing procedure discovering what assists to keep his skin healthy and safe, however we now have our regular down and he has actually been doing excellent!
Clothing has been incredibly important in protecting his skin. We are always looking for outfits that fit the best and provide the most coverage while ensuring he is comfortable.
Porg likewise experiences an eye condition called lens luxations. Lens luxations have actually likewise been reported in some felines with Elhers Danlos Syndrome. At this time his eyes are well handled with everyday eye drops
We would explain Porg’s character as larger than life! He likes to play and be active.
Nevertheless, when he quiets down, he is the greatest cuddler and has the loudest purr.
We are so fortunate to be able to share his distinct and cute journey with the world. Porg wants to motivate others to open their hearts to unique requirements animals!
