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 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.”
