Hello. I have adopted a 8-9 week old kitten who has been diagnosed with a Grade 2 Heart Murmur with an over-bite... The rescue group named him Sprocket, I renamed him to BlackJack(capital B and a capital J). He has a long and sad story as well. His breeder put his litter up for sale in a petstore, which naturally, had a health check done on all kittens.. He came back positive for a Heart Murmur, grade 2 and with a overbite.. The petstore told the vet to put him down(kill him) and gave him to the vet.. well the vet.. being so loving and good hearted couldn't see the need for that to happen to such a loving, gentle, kind, sweet-natured kitten... so the vet called a rescue group who came and got the kitten... They posted the kitten's page online at petfinder.com... I saw him, gave them a week to find him a home and kept tabs on him online... I called them on the 7th day.. THey said that nobody called in to inquire about him, so i went and brought him home. Now I am doing some scrambling to do some research to learn about his Heart Condition. I'm calling my vet in the morning to get information from him, But i was wonderig if I could get some from here as well... So basically thats his long and sad story.... I have a 2 yr old Chausie breed female feline since she was 11months old(black/brown spotted/stripped tabby--african wildcat bred to a male tabby--).. and i had to put down a 7 1/2 yr old cat i had since his birth 2 months ago. So i'm not a novice at being a cat friend. Btw. Here's his picture....
