Adoption Update – Sedimentary – AARCS

Sedimentary really is a hell of a fighter. This sweet girl has been through so much, but through it all she has shown incredible strength and resilience. Here’s what her adoptive mom has to say about her rescue journey!

“I had the pleasure of meeting her in May 2022 when she came to stay with me….with her 6 kittens. Sedi was scared, very thin, with an unkempt coat, sneezing and congested. Sedi was treated for an upper respiratory tract infection (cat’s cold).

Once Sedi finished breastfeeding, her condition deteriorated. It was difficult for her to breathe and she started vomiting and losing even more weight. We thought that was it for her and said goodbye.

The wonderful veterinary team at AARCS evaluated her weekly and knew she was solid. Sedi was diagnosed with chronic rhinitis and a polyp was discovered deep in her ear. They determined that surgery might be the way to go for her.

We all thought this surgery would be the cure. I picked her up and brought her home with hope. After 48 hours, it became clear that she was not recovering as expected. Sedi didn’t want to eat or drink. The AARCS veterinary team took charge of his care. Unfortunately, she still didn’t want to eat or drink. Again, we said goodbye in silence.

On December 8, the veterinary team made the decision to insert a feeding tube to help the sedimentaries. They knew that this fighter had given her everything and that it was not time to abandon her. The amazing Amy Corpe brought Sedi home and gave her the round-the-clock care she needed.

After 4 weeks, Sedi was still being tube fed and refusing to eat. Amy contacted me to discuss the future of Sedimentary. It was dark. That evening, Sedimentary took a bite of food. No words can express how excited Amy and I were!!!!! And Sedi continued to eat! And he still eats! Sedi never stops eating!

It’s impossible to describe in words the joy of meeting each new cat, but there was something REALLY special about this group! On February 14, Amy and her team gave me the best Valentine’s Day gift ever… Sedi was cleared for adoption. Mama Sedi – Warrior Cat – Biggest and Best Home Win” —xo, Foster/Mom of Sedimentary
