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.

URGENT: HELP A CUTE CAT

Hey guys, so I found a pair of kittens behind work a little over a month ago. I’m keeping one (Gem) but I need some help with her sister, Stone.

She’s going in to get fixed tomorrow and I never intended to foster her this long. I’ve been asking my local rescue for help and have been met with less than stellar responses. 

So here I am, asking you guys for help! We’re looking for folks in Florida’s Riverview, Tampa, or Brandon area’s. We’d be willing to meet you half way, and can go as far as Sarasota to get her a good home!

If you can’t take her home, please signal boost to help us out!

Help fund my friend’s cat surgery!!!

My friend’s cat needs an important surgery and I’d be forever grateful if you could donate for the cause!

“ Let’s create a chain of human solidarity around Tigrou! Tigrou is a pillar of our family. It is a cat full of life, discreet but valiant and determined. He is also very affectionate and gets on well with the whole family, including the little dog who joined us a few months ago. He is in great shape and could live for a very long time among us. Unfortunately, a tumor has started to grow under his left shoulder since this winter. We have been constantly following up with his veterinarian, but the tumor is taking more and more space, hampering his movements, starting to make him suffer and possibly dislocating his shoulder. We must operate. Without this very expensive operation, the tumor, magnifying, will dislocate the shoulder of Tigrou, create very serious injuries. At best, it will be necessary to impede his leg, at worst, he could die at the end of his blood. We can not stay idle. Thank you for helping us by creating a chain of human solidarity around Tigrou. ”

This is the shelter my mother rescued her cat Sammy from. It’s the only no-kill shelter serving northern Tucson (and honestly covers a lot more than that). A ferocious microburst came through a couple days ago, causing a major train derailment… and also badly flooding the shelter. Please donate if you can.

Babs Needs a Home!

I try not to do this too often – I know it’s not what anyone’s following this blog for, but this poor baby’s story keeps punching me in the heart. The sensation moved up to my brain and I started thinking maybe I could do something to help.

Babs’ beloved person passed away. Instead of taking her in, surviving family absolved themselves of her and left her with animal control.  By then, her coat was so matted, she needed to be shaved. The displacement and stress of being in a shelter has been very tough on her and she’s starting to shut down. She’s lost her appetite and is spending more and more time huddled with her face hidden in the corner of her cage.  She’s also come down with a fever recently and is being treated with fluids and antibiotics. The vets think she’ll be okay, but this is no way for a sweetheart to live.

—————————–

Babs is fixed, vaccinated, FIV/FeLV negative and about 8-10 years old. She didn’t much enjoy being shaved (who would?) but never motioned to swat or bite anyone, and I’m pretty sure her whiskers set some kind of record for length.  Also, don’t tell the shelter workers I told you, but her adoption fee has already been taken care of.

She’s with Shelter Friends of St. Charles, Missouri. 314-750-7979

So…is there anyone in the Missouri-Illinois area in need of a pretty lap cat?

Can you help me spread this around a bit to give her a chance at the kind of happy home she belongs in?

Thank you!

**UPDATE**  Some good news – Babs has found a foster home sponsored by All Paws Rescue to do some recuperating in so that she doesn’t have to languish in a cage. She still very much needs a forever home, though. If there are any interested parties, the place to contact now is All Paws Rescue

That said, every shelter and rescue and foster group out there is absolutely overwhelmed with cats, kittens, dogs and puppies this time of year.  So many animals don’t get a second chance like Babs.  If you have any room in your heart and home, please consider adopting or signing up to foster!  ❤

the-squat-cobbler:

Kitties of the Valley here in the Rio Grande Valley Texas with a 39% poverty level are trying to raise $75,000 to complete the building and fencing for our sanctuary.  We have to dig a well, put in a septic tank, finish out the inside of the 16 x 50 building.  They are currently over 90 kittens in foster care, 60 in one home alone.  As soon as the building is complete we can move the 90 kittens out to the property. This will give them a better opportunity to be adopted.  Once the building is done we can get back to our mission trapping cats.  TNR trap, neuter, release, the only solution to the stray cat crisis.  Our 501©3 is still pending we will have in time for taxes. Thank you for your consideration.

Hey if you guys could give this a signal boost or a donation that’d be great. I follow them on fb and they’re nice folks. I’m just trying to support this local shelter and they’re nowhere close to meeting their goal. Please help.

Paige needs help!

jaccident:

johnswicks:

I don’t usually ask for money since I can get by, but recent events have put me in a tough situation. about a month ago I took Paige to the vet and found out that she has tartar build up in some of her teeth. since im in college and money is scarce, i can’t pay for much. 

Paige hasn’t been in my life long, but she has made such a difference in my life. my depression is bad, and I knew that if i invested in getting an animal, it would help. and I was right. she has helped me get motivated again. 

it pains me to think about her ending up in agonizing pain because of her teeth. her vet said that they can’t tell how bad it is until they go in and clean her teeth. this procedure alone is expensive for my budget (around $450), so please, help Paige out. any amount helps. if you can’t donate, PLEASE spread this around!

here is the link to her gofundme!

here are some pictures of her being her normal 12 year old self.
