Jason, 6yr old DSH, tuxedo. He has food allergies to the medicated food that he has to eat in addition to his normal diet for his chronic bladder disease. He takes antihistamines every few days so he's not itchy. This photo is pre-allergies, his beautiful fur is now thinned out
Deenah, 4yr old DSH, she has velvet fur and is very sweet, she is also very fat, we will be checking her thyroid levels next month just to be safe. She's Jason's best friend.
Snowball aka Baby, 1.5yr old Siamese mix. She was a bottle feeder, her mother was brought into our vet clinic as a stray (hit by car) and we did an emergency c-section to save the kittens before the mother died (she had fatal injuries). Baby was the only survivor. She's everyone's best friend, and most annoying one.
Spookie Monster, 10 month old DSH. He came into our clinic on Halloween last year. At 4 weeks old he had been attacked by a dog and did not have skin on the to of his head. His ears had to be stitched together across the skull and skin grafted. He also had infection which has led to permanent damage. Spook has physical permanent damage- his ears are crooked and he has permanent anisorcoria (one pupil is bigger than the other) and has lost 30% of his sight. He also has some funky behavioral stances due to his poor eye sight and his way of processing (he has curly-tail and walks like a german shepherd dog sometimes). Spookie also has a stunted growth.
Ducky, 8 week old DSH, she's a foster kitten that I was treating for ringworm for our rescue shelter. She also needs to weigh 3lbs before she can be spayed and put up for adoption. This kitty is completely fearless, she even attacks my malamute which is 50x her size.
Thai, 7/8 month old melanistic bengal, he's already 12 lbs and is expected to reach the 18lb range full grown. Thai was taken to our rescue as an owner sign over. He was doing horrible in the cat room- attacking people and beating up the other cats, so he was put in a cage with a big sign that said "do not touch". I do a lot of rehabilitation for cats that have fear-aggression. Building their confidence, etc. This helps cut back at aggression based euthanasia at the shelter. Since he's been in my house, he's attacked himself twice (psychosis). He's so stressed out. But he loves on me and approaches me for attention. Here's a picture of him next to Jason (in two days with my rehab program he's already stopped openly assaulting other animals). As you can see, he's already 1 and a half the size of Jason and only an 8th of his age.
