hey guys. this is milco, a rescue cat of mine. he has some kind of nerve problem and he’s been walking with a limp for a weekish. his vet suggested we take him to therapy.

except the therapy is kinda costy for us. he’ll need 5 to 10 sessions for it to work and each session costs roughly $20 (that’s pretty expensive in my currency, for comparison my internet bill is $40 a month). my brother agreed to pitch in but not by much.

please consider commissioning art or fic if you can. i will open the slots until we get all the money needed for milco’s therapy. i also have ko-fi if you prefer to donate instead.

signal boost is very much appreciated!

So this wee fella is currently at the vets – we had to rush him in this morning – because he was acting so unlike himself – completely lethargic, no power in his back legs, no desire for food – it was all very worrying.

The vets have run tests, and have more to run, so he’s probably going to have to stay overnight. He’s been on a drip most of the day, and had numerous bloods taken.

So if you could keep Fudge in your thoughts tonight, that would be most appreciated.

Thank you

Awhile back one of my family pets Luey got sick and his health noticeably declined until we took him to the vet to try and figure out what was wrong. Following a couple of less than useful trips and some reading online we eventually got blood work done and found out that he’s our special diabetic little boy. After the new information coming to light we had to do a couple more visits and some weeks of insulin injections and are currently working out the best schedule of feeding and the right balance of insulin to give him. It’s been about a month and a half or so and he’s hanging in there pretty well, but it’s left a pretty deep cut in the house budget. With frequent trips to the vet, and multiple instances of pricey blood work stacking up we decided that it couldn’t hurt to open a go fund me page to try and get some donations to help pay off his bills. My mother and sister have also made posts about him on other social media like facebook and instagram, but it’s not getting a whole lot of exposure because no one has been sharing or spreading it. I understand that money is a bit tight all around currently, so if you aren’t able to donate then I would appreciate it with my whole heart if you could at least reblog this so it can get around to other people who might. You can visit the page here to donate or see some more pictures of our special little lad. Also feel free to message me directly if you have any other questions. I’d be more than happy to answer.

I’m just gonna give this a morning reblog since I feel like the post was made during a poor time. I’d love for this to at least get some more reblogs that way it can spread around. This morning he has to make another trip to the vet’s because his pancreatic infection has flared up again, and needs support because he wont drink or eat. It’s the little things that count so if anyone can help in any way possible, even if it’s just more exposure please.

Hi so Lady definitely needs to have surgery to have her liver back in her abdomen and not in her chest. While her liver enzymes were fine, the stuff the liver produces were a little low. Her breathing weirdness and coughing could also be due to the liver pressing on her lungs. The vet suggested I budget about $2500 and needless to say that’s not something I can save on my own in a timely manner. Any help and getting the word out would be incredibly helpful.

Here is the link to the fundraising campaign. If PayPal would work better for you the link is https://www.paypal.me/chikadee or Squarecash is $chikadee

Owen’s Go Fund Me Page

This adorable and precious goober you see here is Owen, and he’s my best friend. Owen has been by my side since I was seven years old; he’s always made sure I was happy and never lonely.

Whenever I was ill, he’d curl up in my bed and watch over me as I slept. If I had a bad day with depression, he’d always keep close in the same room and tolerate any snuggles and cuddles I’d scoop him up for. If I tried, he would let me bury my wet, snotty face in his fur and purr his precious heart out until I was feeling better.

In turn, when I went to college, it was my bed he would retreat to back home when he was sick.  My room he’d sleep in and my room he’d seek comfort in. When I was able, I’d even skype-call back home and get to see this lovable little guy react to me being on a screen with delightful confusion and adorably close shots of his nose.

Now, he needs my help, and I’m scared, because the numbers are going up and up and I’m struggling to keep up with him.

Today, he needed a shot for an antibiotic (he’s been sick for a few weeks) and some blood tests to further diagnose his Heart Arrhythmia which was noticed last week during his last vet visit. Things are happening hard and fast. The vet (from today’s visit, the day I am writing this) is very adamant we take him in for an echo-cardiogram, but unfortunately, that requires a specialist who is only in town a handful of times each week – and a very hefty bill.

The echo-cardiogram for a pet runs $400-$500 for the test and results. The vet bill today was just shy of $300. This is before I even begin to think about what will follow once we have a treatment plan.

Right now, all I can say is that I’m terrified and I don’t know how to get this money. I didn’t expect this to happen so suddenly, but Owen means the world to me. He is the best friend I ever could have asked for and grown up as a loving, doting presence at my side.

I come now to you asking for help to keep my cat’s precious heart and life healthy and safe. Right now, I can’t begin to guess if my current goal is low-balling it with what’s to come, but right now, I just want to try and make sure I can afford what I KNOW is coming.

If anyone is able to help, I thank you from the bottom of my heart, and I know Owen does as well.

Thank you for reading my story.

COME VISIT FANCY’S FUNDRAISER!

Hello everyone! This is Fancy.  She is a ~12-13-week-old dilute tortoiseshell kitten my girlfriend found on the street while delivering pizza.  Her long coat makes it hard to see how thin she is, but she is very thin. Her bones are so prominent that we have to cuddle her wrapped in a towel or she can’t get comfortable. (Yes, that is exactly as heartbreaking as it sounds.)

In addition to being dangerously underweight, she is suffering from an abscessed bite wound and some sort of problem with her tail, as well as a heavy parasite load that is giving her runny poop issues and sapping her energy.  She is too small to even have the shots given to babies half her age.

Despite all this, Fancy is heart-meltingly sweet.  She loves people.  She talks a lot and even vocalizes softly while purring herself to sleep.  She is alert but she tires easily because she has no energy reserves and right now she basically only sleeps, eats, poops, sleeps, cuddles, talks about everything she does, eats some more, and sleeps.

She looks rough now but with some TLC she will be a beautiful cat with a nice, low-maintenance medium-length silky coat and vibrant lemon-lime eyes.  We want to find her a forever home, but we can’t do that until she is healthy enough!

We took her to the vet on Monday, July 30 and she has been wormed, treated for earmites, and tested clean for FeLV and heartworms, and her abscess has been cleaned out, which is all good, but she has some challenges. 

The vet says that at 3.6 lbs. she is ½ to ¾ of a pound underweight, which is a big difference when you are as small as she is. Imagine being 30 lbs. underweight. That’s scary.  This is the biggest hurdle right now.  The odds are absolutely in her favor, this is a problem we can fix, but she is still severely malnourished and that presents a very real risk.

Also her tail doesn’t work so great.  She can only move the first inch or so closest to her behind, and sometimes it’s hard to get it out of the way when she uses the litter box.  If it doesn’t improve as she gets stronger the vet wants to take X-rays to see what’s causing it and what needs to be done.

She has a checkup in 10 days but right now we cannot afford to take her to it, let alone pay for any more unexpected urgent treatment, because today’s vet appointment blew through everything we had saved back.

Will you please help us give her a second chance by visiting her fundraiser and sharing this post?  Fancy is a brave and strong young lady who wants to be healthy!  She wants to go home with someone who will make her their special little girl forever!

I’ve set a goal of $700 to cover what we had to pay today for testing, wound treatment, and medication, and the things we had to get to take care of her (piddle pad crate liners, her own toys, some special food to get her weight up, baby wipes to clean up her bottom, all that sort of thing) plus some extra for her next checkup, her shots, and some extra for imaging or in case something unexpected comes up (most likely another abscess, a respiratory infection, or gastritis).  We have other cats, one of whom has kidney disease and needs specialized food that costs kind of a lot, so this is putting a big strain on us financially.

She deserves so much better.  Please help us make her second chance as great as it can be.

Thank you so much.

Here’s her one chance.  Let’s not let Fancy down.

So sorry to hear that. I’m sure you gave her a wonderful life.

Help Needed

So, I’m hesitant

to post this, but we need help. Our cat, John, has a huge growth on his neck and it’s getting bigger and bigger. We need about $500 for the vet to do a biopsy and remove the growth. With everything that’s happened in the last three months, my brother and mom dying and Lynn’s mom dying, we don’t have money for vet bills. So I’m asking for help from anyone willing to help out.

If you can help, we thank you SO much. Here’s my paypal link:

Under the cut, you can see pics of the growth. Warning, it’s pretty gross.
