Meet Khaleesi

Meet Khaleesi, a beautiful Siamese who was brought to Animal League America as a kitten by her rescuers. She was a very sick little girl and was immediately admitted to our Pet Health Centers.

Tests and x-rays revealed that Khaleesi has a birth defect called atresia ani. This is a condition in which the anus does not form correctly making it difficult or impossible to defecate. Khaleesi effectively had one opening through which she was partly urinating and defecating.  She would have died without emergency surgery that our veterinarians performed!  Shortly after Nicolette adopted Khaleesi, she developed additional complications and needed more operations. She also has megacolon as a result of her birth defect which means she’ll have chronic constipation and require medication to help her system function better.  The Pet Sponsorship Program ensures that Khaleesi gets the supportive lifelong care for her medical conditions.  Thank you!

Khaleesi (aka Murphy) is spending her time soaking up the sun, playing with bottle caps and rolling around on her favorite shag rug. According to mom Nicolette, a more recent hobby is “figuring out if she likes her new (human) baby sister!” Though Murphy can be a nervous girl and she can get startled easily, she does love to play, and she’ll meow at you until you give her the attention she desires.

Khaleesi (aka Murphy) may have had a challenging start, but now that she has the support she needs with her medical condition, she is getting to enjoy her life to the fullest. She still has her sweet nature and affectionate disposition. Murphy reminds her family every day about what it means to be resilient, and they are so grateful for having her as an important part of their home.

Khaleesi continues to weather her medical challenges like the queen she is. Murphy’s family is grateful every day that they brought this beautiful girl into their home. Affectionate as ever, they told us Murphy’s determined spirit and sweet and playful nature continue to shine bright. Many thanks to all our Sponsors for ensuring Murphy gets to be the little survivor she was meant to be.

Khaleesi is the little fighter with an enormous heart that she has always been. She has really settled in with her adopted family, and they enjoy providing her with the patience and assistance she sometimes needs. Khaleesi has an extremely affectionate nature and her favorite place to be is still anywhere next to one of her beloved people!

Khaleesi may be small in size, but she is big in spirit! As her mom, Nicolette, puts it: “She’s a tiny little fighter. She was born without a butt and was given not just a new butt, but a whole new life.” Khaleesi is precious to her family and she loves her treats, napping on paper bags, and cuddling up next to them. Says Nicolette, “She’s feisty, but loves hard. Khaleesi will greet us when we come home and meow at any closed doors because she hates being alone.”
