Featured Animal: Tulip

Tulip now
Tulip is an 8-month-old kitten who was found as a stray and brought to the Cleveland APL in the fall of 2014.  She originally had an upper respiratory infection, but later showed signs of stunted growth and cerebellar hypoplasia.  Tulip was in the care of the APL for 8 months.  She underwent exploratory surgery, a biopsy, multiple bloodwork tests and medications, IV fluids, laser treatment, and acupuncture.  Tulip spent most of her time in the home of a member of the veterinary team who fostered her.  On April 20, Tulip was adopted by a friend of her foster mom.  She is thriving in her new home—and her foster mom gets regular updates on the little kitten she cared for for so long.
