3-7-16  Purrsephone  Sick senior kitty

Purrsephone had her vet appointment... it didn't go so well. They found some type of growth in her mouth and don't know if it's an abscess or a tumor. It has caused a massive infection that is affecting her eating, voice box, hearing, and the shaking.  We could afford the heavy dose of antibiotics (injection they gave her) and we brought two different pain medications home for her. Due to taking care of Phaedra's medical issue the end of January and the passing of Joseph (blind and deaf foster phriend we wanted cremated), we will need a miracle in order to pay for almost $180-$200 worth of blood work that she really needs (they wanted it done already). After that, she needs x-rays and surgery, which would be $700-$2000. They can't give a perfect estimate as they don't know exactly what it is and if it's a mass that can be removed, it would sent to be biopsied.  PLEASE... help if you can!!  Purrsephone may be over 16yrs old, but we DON'T want to just give up on her if this is just an issue with a tooth, when she has plenty of kick left in her!!​​   Phaedra & Friends is not a 501c3 yet but you can your donations to us, The Dollar Club as we are a 501c3 and we can forward right to the vet.

3-8-16 Diesel - dog who accidently ate a bottle of aspirin

Diesel celebrated his 7th birthday on March 4, 2016. On March 5, Diesel, being the curious and crazy dog he is jumped up on the counter and took the entire bottle of dog aspirin we use for his fur-sister. He ate the entire bottle, of 75 , which causes a severe overdose of drugs in dogs.
We immediately rushed him to the vet where he is recovering from overdose. His vitals are doing well, and he is expected to be fine. He is being treated at Quakertown Vet clinic. He has to go through numerous tests and detox to ensure it clears his system. We received a quoted bill of $2600 plus additional costs of post testing after release.  We are asking for help in Diesel's recovery due to financial difficulty. I adamantly volunteer with several rescue groups in PA and almost every weekend participate in transporting dogs to their new homes or rescue. I love dogs. It's what I do. But hard times happen, and it seems to have all happened at once for our family. Please consider helping us save our pup. He is our first dog, our healthiest, most loving pup. He means the world to our family.​​  (not a 501c3)

3-9-16  Honey - Dog hit by car

My dog got hit by a car the other night she needs surgery asap anything will help this situation as I'm on a fixed income, time is of the utmost importance.  We are all hoping to get her feeling back in her legs to be able to walk again please donate or share this post and all prayers and healing sent are appreciated.   **UPDATE:  Honey had surgery for her spine. Dr said she went from a 0 to a 50% as it was not severed all the way through as they thought from cat scan. So vertebrae is back in place as should be. We saw her today, she is in good hands on fluids, being monitored. she won't have the pain she had b4 surgery, pain is being managed is from surgery.  She doesn't have feeling back yet, it is too soon to tell.  Dr is trying to use injections & send home with meds.  They are doing some type of laser therapy on her as well for inflammation. We have to give her about a 2 mo healing & contain in playpen for awhile while wounds heal to keep safe.   Good chance she will walk again. We still haven't found person who hit her & left the scene.  I raised as much as I could and my family charged the rest on their account but I can't bring Honey home until I pay off the rest of the bill.  (Not a 501c3) but if you donate through the Dollar Club, they are a 501c3 and your donations are tax deductible.

3-9-16 Loki - cat with pancreatitis

Aunt Cecy had to use her mortgage money to take Loki to the emergency hospital after he threw up blood. He has been diagnosed with pancreatitis, a very serious condition, and will need very expensive medical care in order to live. Loki will go to the vet hospital tomorrow to receive supportive care.
His prognosis is guarded. The office wanted to keep him overnight, but the funds aren't available. He was given antibiotics, cerenia, and more pain meds. Loki hasn't eaten since Friday, isn't drinking or urinating, and possibly has a urinary blockage.  Not a 501c3

3-10-16  Sasha - kitty with severe stomatitis

We pulled Sasha as a kitten from NYC ACC Death Row. He was adopted to a couple, but a few years later, we were requested to take him back because the man had left and the woman had two jobs now and she complained he kept her up at night so she couldn't get any sleep. While we were looking for another home for him, he developed Stomatitis to the point that he now has trouble eating, shreaking and going into something like apoplexy, when food hits the sore areas at the back of his mouth or attempts are made to syringe meds or open his mouth to inspect the area. He now needs a complete mouth extractions so that he will be pain free. Please donate, or share this fundraiser for our rescue cat Sasha​​  (they are a 501c3)

He doesn't want to stand, eat or drink! and is lethargic. Poor boy is out of it. We don't know what happened! He was perfectly fine last night before we went to bed. We just posted a picture of him yesterday happy, enjoying the weather. We have an emergency appt. at our vet at 2:00pm today. Funding is going to be needed! Please donate what you can! Our PayPal email address is iluvmychicklk@aol.com . We need prayers too!

3-13-16 Koda - Sick kitty

My best friend is a combat Veteran with PTSD who loves his cats more than life and they keep him grounded. One of his cats recently needed to be put to sleep and now his cat Koda has been sick. He did initial vetting with her and even brought her to the ER the other day because she was having trouble breathing. She was initially given a Convenia injection and was tested (neg) for FeLV/FIV. Koda has polyps and was told by the ER vet that she also possibly has calicivirus and was given meds(Clavamox) to take home (which is near impossible to get into her as she is borderline semi-feral when it comes to being held in any way). The ER vet recommended Koda have xrays and a nasal flush done with her regular vet. She was brought to the ER vet due to trouble breathing and she is now sneezing blood and not eating ( probably because she can't smell or breathe well). She is starting to lose weight and calici and polyps should NOT be a death sentence. Please help Koda so she can get her much needed procedure. I do not think my friend could bare to lose another one of his babies. Please share, any donation is much appreciated. Thanks​​  ****UPDATE  .We had xrays of her chest done to check for a mass so we could rule that out-no mass, checked out fine. We had bloodwork run and her WBC was slightly elevated, but nothing crazy (pic of bloodwork results posted). We had the bloodwork run because she was there to have a bronchial scope and a nasal flush which requires sedation. The specialist would not be in until Saturday so Koda was to spend the night.  Today Koda had her procedure successfully and a lot of "stuff" was cleared out (by nasal flush) and sample tissue was taken and prepared to be biopsied.  Koda is home now minus the nasal congestion sounds which is great. We can tell she is feeling a little better. The vet bill was $1,264 and my friend is now in the hole quite a bit as on top of this were three other vet visits (2 to Bristol County Vet, 1 to MA RI ER, and now TUFTS). He loves his cat and he is trying everything for her to save her.  (Are We Home Yet Cat Rescue Not a 501c3)

3-14-16  Spooky bones - VERY sick kitty

Spooky is a sweet, loving little cat who I rescued as an infant kitty. A year later I was the one who needed rescuing when I required a liver transplant. Spooky is the cat who saw me through the healing process, the depression caused by the immunosuppressive drugs I had to take so as not to reject my liver. He would try to purr me to health. His health was never very good. He would get frequent UTIs no matter how careful I was with his diet. Then last August he almost died. The diagnosis was Cat Triad Disease, a hellish combination of pancreatitis, IBD and hepatitis. Now he has a blocked urethra which landed him in the emergency room. Unfortunately when he was released he became blocked again. A trip to my regular vet confirmed he had a massive amount of stones in his bladder which required surgery to remove, or euthanasia. His prognosis is good once the stone are removed if I provide very special care for him for the rest of his life. I am more than willing to do this but I do not have the funds for his acute care. I care for 15 cats, most are seniors and many with their own chronic conditions. I no longer work since the transplant. I am doing my best to try to keep it all together but I need help. I still owe $500 from the Cat Triad acute attack back in August. The emergency room visit was $1300. I am sure the surgery to remove the stones will be another $2000 when all is said and done. Any contribution no matter how small will help us..so please consider helping our family.

3-17-16 several rescued cats need vets

March 1, 2016, Community Cat received a call to come rescue a number of cats who were losing their home due to an eviction. The owner surrendered them to us and we were able to remove 29 cats from inside the home on March 4. On March 5, with the help of the wonderful Dr Coder from the Humane Society of Southern Wisconsin, all cats were vetted, receiving rabies, distemper, revolution, Capstar, Drontal, Strongid, Microchip, and FIV/FeLV testing. On Monday, the first three cats who were in the worst shape went to Dr Kay at Companion Animal Hospital.  
These cats were much loved, but did not receive the care they needed. 24 of the 32 cats tested positive for FIV, a feline immune disease. Seven of the cats need dental surgery. Our first dental surgery was just under $1000 and we have six more to go. We expect our costs to be well over $6000 before we are done and these cats all find homes!  We have been very blessed to have some shelters and rescues step up to help us by taking in some of these cats! Thank you to Safe House Animal Rescue League, Happy Endings, Touched By A Paw, Elmbrook Humane Society, and Humane Society of Southern Wisconsin. We are also happy to report that two cats have already been adopted! The bad news is that the worst of the worst for health are the ones that remain with us. We are committed to getting them the care they need and will find them adoptive homes! We just need your help financially to accomplish this!
Any and all donations will go directly to the cats from this home in Koshkonong. Thank you so very much for your help and sharing their story! ​​  (Community Cat is a 501c3)
