Anna and her siblings were transferred to Toronto Humane Society after they tested positive for ringworm this summer.  

Ringworm is a skin infection caused by a fungus. It is called ringworm because it appears as a circular rash. 

This infection causes hair loss and can be quite itchy. Ringworm can be challenging to detect in cats since the rash can be very mild or even undetectable. Ringworm is treated with oral medications and twice weekly sulfur baths. For Anna and her three siblings to be cleared, they needed to test negative twice for the infection.  

As they were just eight weeks old when they arrived, our Behaviour Team created a plan to socialize the kittens so they could live comfortable, happy lives. 

Anna and her siblings have since been adopted.
