The saddest cat in the world: victim of the rarest disease

The saddest cat in the world: victim of the rarest disease.

In social networks, photos of « saddest » sad cats appear with unpleasant regularity, which almost always is sad simply because of various defects in appearance.

Sushi is sad because he can’t scratch himself, and he really wants to scratch himself! But he doesn’t have scabies, he has Ehlers-Danlos syndrome.

This disease is so rare that the best veterinarian in Sao Paulo was surprised to find that the last time he saw such a thing was 10 years ago! And there is no cure, you understand. Sushi was once an ordinary kitten.

The affection started to progress a few years ago – the sushi is all flabby and « aged ». The owner spent over $1000 on medication before finding the cause.

In short, Sushi’s skin is « bad », it lacks collagen and therefore cannot withstand stress. It sags under its own weight, which gives the kitten a wrinkled and very sad appearance. It itches constantly, but you should not scratch – scabs form immediately.

Sushi needs to be moistened all the time, and what cat likes that? You can’t even pet him to keep him from hurting you! And the worst part is that no one even tries to heal Sushi. There is no reason.

No one in the world will create a cure for multiple cats, it’s too complicated. All in all, the owner has given Sushi a decent life, he hardly suffers. But her appearance still attracts a lot of attention.
