This Cute Kitty With Dwarfism Will Forever Remain Kitten-Sized

0

Munchie, the 7-month old catto, is still the size of a tiny kitten. Astonishingly enough, the kitty weighs a meager 1.7kg. He won’t grow any further because of a rare condition called hypoparathyroidism. Munchie is one of the two cats globally having diagnosed with this condition. However, that never stops him from putting a smile on his human’s face because he’s just so adorable!

Munchie was admitted to a veterinary clinic at Wolverhampton back in September 2019. Emily Tomlinson, Munchie’s 29-year-old hooman, also happened to work at the same hospital. Vets seemed to think Munchie was just about 3 or 4 weeks old when the previous owners had left him. Emily believes this was a result of Munchie’s cloudy eyes from bilateral corneal edema, despite the fact that it does not have any adverse effects on the vision.

A lady had found Munchie near the park and brought him to the hospital. Emily fostered him for a week, but she ended up adopting him because no one came forward to claim the kitty. But little did she know, the little kitty will change her life for good.

Emily describes that all was well until Boxing day, when he suddenly collapsed. He was taken to out-of-hours emergency veterinarians. He was admitted for x-rays, blood test, ultrasounds, and intravenous fluid therapy. His blood test revealed a calcium level of 0.52. Vets were in disbelief, so they re-ran the test. But the test gave same results again! For the next 4 nights, she was at the vets being kept stable and given calcium via IV. Hypoparathyroidism was not on the vet’s mind because the chances of a kitten being diagnosed with it are so rare! We recently however, ran the tests, and discovered that he does have hypoparathyroidism. He will require calcium and Vitamin D for his entire life.
