OLIVER (m), nascut/born: 06.2012, deparazitat/dewormed, castrat/neutered, educat la litiera/litter box trained
(EN below) Oliver este un motanel mai putin norocos: conform ultimelor investigatii pe care le-am efectuat, se pare ca a suferit un traumatism in primele luni de viata, iar osatura soldului nu s-a sudat corespunzator. Diagnosticul final este cel de fractura consolidata de col femural stang cu subluxatie coxofemurala si sindrom de compresiune medulara cu parapareza cronica ireversibila. Acest lucru inseamna ca fractura este deja sudata gresit, iar dificultatile de mers (parapareza) sunt permanente. Ca in cazul tuturor fracturilor, reversibilitatea ar fi putut garantata numai daca s-ar fi intervenit in primele 10 zile. Din pacate, la momentul la care l-am preluat pe Oliver acest interval fusese deposit demult.

Desi diagnosticul poate parea inspaimantator, exista si unele vesti bune: Oliver nu are incontinenta si isi poate controla nevoile astfel incat sa foloseasca litiera. De asemenea, starea sa nu este una degenerativa, adica dificultatile sale de mers nu se vor agrava in timp. Singura nevoie “speciala” a lui Oliver este aceea de a beneficia de un minim efort suplimentar in ceea ce priveste toaletarea picioruselor din spate. Ca urmare a modului in care merge si foloseste litiera, lipsa unei toalete ar putea provoca in timp escare si risc de infectie. Cu toate acestea, riscul poate fi prevenit usor cu putina atentie suplimentara acordata motanelului.

In pofida dificultatilor pe care le are la mers, Oliver este unul dintre cei mai iubitori, energici si jucausi motani. Se deplaseaza singur la castronelul cu mancare si la litiera, urca si coboara fara ajutor de pe pat si adora sa se joace cu “undita” sau cu orice ghemotoc de hartie care ii atrage atentia. Cand nu se joaca, Oliver toarce de la prima atingere si sta cu burtica in sus pentru a fi mangaiat.
ARE NEVOIE DE O SANSA, o familie iubitoare si responsabila, care sa il accepte asa cum este.

    Oliver is a less fortunate tomcat: according to the latest exams performed on him, it appears that he suffered from a physical trauma in the early months of his life, and the bones of the hip didn’t repair themselves in a proper manner. The final diagnosis is: consolidated fracture of the left femoral neck with coxofemoral subluxation and medular compression syndrome with irreversible chronic paraparesis. This means that the fracture is already wrongly repaired, and his walking difficulties (the paraparesis) are permanent. As with all fractures, the reversibility could have been ensured only if the surgery had been performed within the first 10 days. Unfortunately, at the time when Oliver came into our care, this time-span had already ended.

    Although the diagnosis might seem scary, there is some good news too: Oliver doesn’t have incontinency and is able to control his urinary and defecation needs, so he can use the litter box successfully. Also, his condition is not degenerative, i.e. his walking difficulties won’t get any worse with time. He’s only “special” need is to benefit from a minimal extra effort in toileting his back legs. Given the way he walks and uses the litter box, the lack of a proper toileting might cause lacerations and a risk of infection. However, the risk may be easily prevented with a little extra attention.

    Despite his walking difficulties, Oliver is one of the most loving, energetic and playful tomcats. He goes to the food bowl and to the litter box all by himself, the gets on and off the couch all by himself, and he loves playing with the feathered-stick and with any ball of paper he could find. When he is not playing, Oliver purrs from the second you touch him and places his tummy up to enjoy your petting.

    HE NEEDS A CHANCE, a loving and responsible family, who is willing to accept just as he is.
