She had young kittens a few days ago and someone took them. Mia tried to get help bringing her kittens into a hair salon. The owner didn’t want her there and put her kittens in a box and put them out of the store.[/mk_fancy_title][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/mk_page_section][vc_row][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1662264222946{margin-bottom: 0px !important;}”]VFCC was made aware of what was going to and went to help. When we got there the kittens had been taken. Every effort was made to locate the kittens, but we never found them.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”10193″ img_size=”Medium”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row fullwidth=”true” equal_columns=”true” column_padding=”2″][vc_column][mk_padding_divider][vc_row_inner is_fullwidth_content=”false”][vc_column_inner width=”1/4″][mk_padding_divider size=”51″][vc_single_image image=”10198″ img_size=”Medium”][mk_padding_divider size=”51″][vc_single_image image=”10197″ img_size=”Medium”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”3/4″][mk_fancy_title tag_name=”span” size=”” margin_bottom=”0″ font_family=”none” responsive_align=”left” el_class=”body-text”]Mia got very depressed without her kittens, then she got mastitis. She is was in so much pain we took her to the emergency vet for treatment. She was running a high fever and even had bruising on her nipples. She was so thin from nursing her kittens without getting fed herself. Mia required so much veterinary care for this infection and Visalia Feral Cat Coalition can only spend funds for medical that someone donated for feral cat medical treatment. People came to her rescue, with fund to cover her vet bills. Even after getting treatment at the emergency vet her whole underside split open in many places. She had huge, open wounds that were infected and would scream when touched. Mia was given stronger pain relief and stronger antibiotics and started the long road to recovery Mia became tame with her foster mom and she decided to keep her. [/mk_fancy_title][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][mk_padding_divider size=”51″][vc_gallery interval=”3″ images=”10223,10180,10276,10277″ img_size=”full” onclick=””][/vc_column][/vc_row]
