I have not had a cent to spare but I'm so so glad to hear that your kitty is going to be okay! I've been thinking about you and her all day long. I am going through a pet health scare myself and its not easy. I'm sending good healing vibes to sweet Holly, please continue to update :)
I shall, don’t worry. Thank you so much for the positive comments. <3
She’s got a long road ahead of her, but at least now it can start somewhere. Thank you. :)

So now that the goal has almost been met, is Holly going to be okay?
I just made an update on her donation page.
I took Holly to the vet this afternoon with the concern that she may have nerve damage or something internally wrong with her.
But after some testing and probing, it was decided that she’s fine and ready for surgery. Thanks to everyone who donated we were able to scheduled her surgery for Monday. (:

No need to apologize! I completely understand. I’m grateful for the sharing and your kind words. Thank you so much and I wish your kitties all the health and happiness. :)

I saw your post about your kitty and,although I have no money to give,I want to assure that FHOs are very successful procedures.Working with a dog rescue, several of our dogs have had the surgery and none have had any problems.I hope this encouraging
Thank you! that is really encouraging to hear. My vets assured me that they have had great success as well so it’s easing my mind a bit. Thank you so much for sharing. <3

You should just make a rescue donation pool for any and all kitties you find
Honestly I know. I wish I could. I have been trying to save up for a 501(c)(3), but emergencies keep popping up. I know that would help us and then I wouldn’t feel badly about setting up a long term donation button. I used to (and still do) offer art for donation, especially on deviantart, but I never had ttoo much luck, but we still make it.

You might already know about this site, but someone just told me that fveap. org sometimes gives grants for cats that need emergency care and that you can apply for it there.
No, I hadn’t. Thank you for telling me! Depending on how the vet visit goes this afternoon, I’ll be sure to look into it when I get back home. Thank you so much for telling me about it. <3

Holly hasn’t urinated or a movement since I found her yesterday. Dr. Hightman pinched her feet and checked her other nerves and she seemed fine.
While, he didn’t think there was any nerve damage, he wants us to bring her in to test better for that and check her bladder. If it comes up that there is a problem more prevalent than just her hips, we will have a more difficult decision on our hands.
I’m really nervous about going up there today.

ATTENTION! CATS IN NEED OF ADOPTION IN NORTH CAROLINA!!
So my mom recently moved into my house, and she had to surrender her cats to a shelter. Sounds okay, right? Except she didn’t learn until after she surrendered them that it’s a kill shelter.
So here’s where the cats come in. Both are real sweeties and very affectionate. Big lovebugs and they play well with others.
Here’s the older cat, around 3-4 years of age. Her name is Tink and she’s a lap cat who loves to love and be loved. She’s got all her shots and is litterbox trained… The catch? She’s not fixed. Mom could never afford to get her fixed. Adoption fee is 70$.
And here’s the younger one, Wheezy. She’s also a huge lovebug, and we’re pretty sure she’s at least partially Sacred Birman. She makes cute squeaky meow noises and is very amendable to handling and is very docile. Wouldn’t fight if her life depended on it. She’s… also not fixed. Adoption fee is $70.
These cats have until December the 18th to be adopted, then they’ll be put down for good.
You can find them at:1465 Julian RoadSalisbury, NC 28146If interested, please call:(704) 216-7768
Now I’m not gonna say you’re a horrible person if you don’t adopt these cats or signal boost. I understand that we all got things to worry about.
But that said, every little thing helps. Signal boosting may save these innocent kitties’ lives.
Please let me know via ask if you decide to adopt one of these babies. It’d make my mom and all of us happy to know they’re safe.

In other foster news:
Trip is battling ear mites, but as soon as we see that they are gone he should be going to a new home! He’s going home with a man that works at the college, lives on his own, and really needs and awesome companion like Trip. I pray it works out and that they go great together. Apparently the man spends most of his lunch breaks playing with Trip in the mailroom.
Seems like their friendship is already forming. <3
