‘Dollie’ feline fine

Dollie, a Munchkin kitten, is feeling purrr-fect.

The tiny fur baby was stricken with ischemic dermatopathy — causing drastic changes to her skin and ears.

“When Dollie came to us, her ears were sloughing, and they actually did fall off,” explained Mike Keiley, MSPCA-Angell director of adoption centers and programs. “Parts of her skin were necrotic – the skin was dying. It impacted her extremities, including her tail, legs, and most of her ear tissue. We had never seen anything like it.”

But, as the saying goes, cats have nine lives and Dollie still has eight left.

After about two months in the care of the MSPCA, Dollie is finally ready to find her new home. Bids for adoption can be submitted online at mspca.org/dollie.
