Elena Stray Cat Emergency Care

$375 of $2,500 goal

Raised by 11 people in 12 months
This is Elena,  a stray cat who has lived on our deck for about 5 years. We have housed with a home made feral cat shelter and fed her outdoors during that time. About 6 months ago she finally let us pet her for the first time. Within the last 2 weeks she let us hold her for about 30 seconds to one minute daily. Yesterday I found her laying seriously injured on our deck, still but breathing very heavily. I rushed her to the vet, who assesed her and sent us to the emergency facility  for 24hour care and an oxygen cage.  It's too soon to say if she will make it, but what we know is that she has 4 broken ribs and heavily bruised lungs.  The vet is caqutiously optimistic. Her estimated emergency care is what we are trying to raise  money for.  We really need help with this.  We want to adopt her and bring her inside for good, and had been working towards this. She will have other vet bills and long term care, but this is alot of money all at once for us.  This tiny cat is a friend of each of us in the house, and to our other 3 indoor cats if only through the windows and doors. If you can, any amount of money helps us to save her,  and we deeply appreciate anything at all that anyone can do to help us save this little girl who has had such a hard life. We only want to make her life a better one.

Today Elena went to the vet for a follow up. Her ribs are showing signs of healing and her lungs are much improved. However, her pupils were unequal. This could be signs that she had a head trauma, or swelling on the optic nerve. Her next follow up appointment is in a couple of weeks.
Unhappy at vet today

Elena has figured out the medication schedule. She allows affection first thing in the morning when she knows it's not quite time for a dose. She's good at hiding at medicine time. Her appetite is ...finicky. she has decided she likes the comfy bed we got her, and naps there now instead of on the floor. Please continue to share this story on Facebook, Twitter, etc... and if you can help at all it is deeply appreciated. Thank you!

Elena came home last night and is resting as comfortably as can be expected for a feral cat in a new home. She is confined to a bathroom. She's eating, drinking and has used the litter box which is a very good thing. She is on liquid pain meds 3 times daily, which is extremely hard to administer, and she fights it and twists her injured body trying to escape. Poor baby has a long road ahead. Her bill was over our goal by about $1,000, hitting in the $3,600 range. She will have a minimum of 2 follow up visits, repeat xrays, and med refills and then normal shots to be brought up to where she needs to be. This is a huge undertaking, and any help at all you can give is deeply appreciated. Thank you so much!

Well, she is back on the oxygen, back on the stronger meds, and staying another night. Too much pain and respiratory distress. Poor baby!
