Bean was rescued by a local cat shelter, after being found outdoors in a sorry state.
He was believed to be only 2 weeks old & the cat shelter was already over run & had no room, so they asked The Kitten Consort to take over Bean’s care.
Upon our initial assessment of Bean, we sadly discovered that he was suffering from severe emaciation, a host of medical issues & was in fact 4 weeks old, meaning the odds were stacked against him.
We fought for Bean day & night, providing him with our specialised care, lots of love & plenty of visits to the vets. We gave Bean 24 hour care for 5 weeks & for the first few weeks we thought we were winning, as Bean put weight on, he was eating well, playful & loving.
However, after a few weeks Bean started showing signs of his underlying medical issues, such as episodes of heavy breathing. Although he would perk up again, play, cuddle & purr, his episodes got more intense, until one day he suffered a big seizure.
Bean was rushed to the vets once more & diagnosed with a congenital lung defect, we tried everything to save him but unfortunately he did not survive.
To say we were devastated to lose Bean, a 9 week old baby, is an understatement, he was such a cute, playful & feisty little character, who we all fell in love with & he will be very dearly missed.
