Nala and Simba arrived to us with cases of ringworm. For cats, this affects their nails, hair and skin. It gives them sore patches where their fur doesn’t grow.
To treat it, we had to give them medicine with their food and bathe them in special soap, which is hard enough at the best of times, never mind when they are uncomfortable!
It is really easy for other cats (and people!) to catch ringworm, so the two cats had to be kept on their own until they were fully well again. This stopped the rest of the cattery getting ringworm, too!
They recovered really well, and then travelled together to RSPCA Stapeley Grange where they found new owners!
