Cotton the Kitten
A friend found an abandoned kitten at the Bosphorus University. She was so tiny, so scared, hungry, dirty and covered with fleas. We took care of her. We first fed her, then washed her and got rid of the nasty fleas. She first started crying while we are washing her, but a few minutes later, she liked it and started purring. After all the care, she became a totally different kitten, a cotton candy, a princess. We named her Pamuk (cotton in Turkish). Now she is waiting for her forever parent(s). A few people already wanted to adopt her.
Kitten who likes to travel
A few days ago, a friend (a student at the Bosphorus University) found an adorable kitten on the campus. She was so cute, so innocent, at the same time so vulnerable. Unfortunately, dogs frequently kill the cats here, so we decided to keep her in one of our offices.

FIP Treatment – A Promising Research
FIP (Feline Infectious Peritonitis) is a fatal disease that affects cats. Still, there is no cure for FIP and it is 100 percent fatal. The disease is caused by a mutation of feline enteric coronavirus (FECV) or simply Feline coronavirus (FCoV). But, according to a recent study, titled “Efficacy of a 3C-like protease inhibitor in treating various forms of acquired feline infectious peritonitis”, published in September 2017, an antiviral compound (GC376 protease inhibitor) has opened the door to targeted antiviral drug therapy and FIP treatment. The compound GC376 was originally synthesized in 2011 while looking for cures for the Norwalk virusNotes 1. It was found to have a broad spectrum of activity against other viruses – including the coronavirus family – one of which is the cause of FIP.Continue reading “FIP Treatment – A Promising Research”

I was sad last week. My lovely son Nairo, 5th son of my dear Lotto, had urinary problems. He was entering in the litter very often, and he was meowing while urinating. I took him to the vet and it turned out he had urinary crystals.

Stray cat enters the live TV broadcast
During a live TV broadcast in Denizli, Turkey, a stray cat entered the studio, jumped on the table and started walking around. Finally, he laid down on the keyboard of the presenter’s laptop – a cat’s favorite place! The local TV station’s employees gave him the name of “Hüsnü”, a common Turkish male name. It has been also reported that the cute thing was adopted by Filiz Kurt, an employee of the TV station.

A happy cat family
Last Sunday, I was working at the computer at my desk. My love lotto climbed upon my lap and fell asleep, as usual. Our two sons Leo (tuxedo) and Nairo (Leo) were lying on my bed. Then I heard something behind me. I turned and saw a beautiful scene: Leo was licking his little brother Nairo lovingly.
