Feral Medical Fund

$3,265 of $3,000 goal

Raised by 53 people in 37 months
Sometime's community cats need more than the basic medical care. Whether they are hit by a car, contract some grave illness, or get attacked by an animal, there is usually no one around to help them. They face needless hours of suffering and perhaps death without human intervention.Many of you care for community or feral cats and know just how hard it is to watch this suffering and not be able to help in any way.

Our Feral Medical Fund is a new endeavor to help you and these cats get the help they so desperately need. Just last month at a regular spay/neuter clinic, we came upon Sebastian who had a bad compound fracture with a nasty infection and we had to make the decision to put him to sleep or remove the whole leg. We decided to give this lovely big tuxedo boy a chance and removed his leg. 

Shortly after that, we had a cat in distress after surgery and another cat with an old injury that now faced amputation. We are stepping up to help these cats, taking a leap of faith and asking you to generously give
to help us help them. Even $1 will get us closer to our goal.

Thank you on behalf of all the cats and caretakers, and our staff-

Monkey is done his antibiotics and his healing is progressing rapidly. His human misses him, so we want to get him home as quickly as we can.

At his vet check this morning, Doc M told us he'd rather have Monkey stay put for a few more days, but if his papa can put neosporin on the wound and keep him free of flies and other irritants, then he could go.

We will see what Mr Flook wants to do. Thanks so much with helping us cover his expenses. We still need to cover $300 of his vet care. Please share Monkey's story to help us get the funding necessary.

Thanks so much!!

We've been helping a farmer in Middletown with some kitties. We've got a good deal of them TNR'd and got 13 kittens out to rescue.

We still have a lot of kittens there and they are about old enough now to look for rescue/adoption. And now we can trap their mamma's to spay them.

We had one cat, named Monkey, in that had what the vet thinks was a spider bite. All the flesh in the surrounding area was necrotic and they had to do extensive surgery while he was under for his neuter. Spay Spa and Neuter Nook was so generous in not charging for the surgery, just the medications. His bill was $122.

Monkey had a drain tube in for a week. I never did get pics of that. We got the tube removed at our local vet for $66.69. The vet thought he'd have to do more surgery on Monkey, so we had him in yesterday. However, Dr M said he thought Monkey could do without. This is his pic with the stitches out and it's healing nicely. Yesterday's charges were $228.55

We need $417.24 to cover his vet care to date.
Your donations help us help the kitties with all their needs. We mainly do TNR, but when a cat needs extra vetting we never withhold it. Please consider giving to Monkey.

Updates on our two kitties who received medical treatment these past 2 weeks. Bandit is still doing well. He is slowing down on eating, so the steroid must be wearing off a bit. I will be talking to the vet about the next steps for him, as he may need a specialist.

Venus, the calico with the injured leg has gotten a diagnosis of a dislocated fetlock. She is walking on it now, so we hope it is healing on it's own. We also found that she is pregnant with a whopping 6 babies. She is near to term, so we are looking for a rescue to take the babies at 6-8 weeks. In about 4 weeks we will
finish Venus' vetting with her spay and vaccines.

We still need a bit more to help the kitty with the abscess on it's jaw. We have $75 toward our $150 goal for this kitty. So please keep sharing and helping us out, so we can help the caretaker.

Thanks so much to all of you who support our work.

We have another need at the moment. A neighborhood stray has an abscess on his lower jaw and we will need to have him looked at during neuter surgery. We are not sure what the vet will charge, but we will start out asking for $300 for his vetting.

Please donate any amount to help us cover his care.
Also, share this need, please. Thank you so much!

On another note, the small Calico we raised funds for will see the vet on the 20th. She will get her spay surgery, vaccines and leg care. Thank you all so much for helping her out.
