Simba Needs Your Help

On January 3, 2020, my daughter's birthday, our beloved Ragdoll kitten, Simba, was discovered in the washing machine after he stowed away inside after a full cycle without us knowing. He's been hospitalized and may lose his tail. It's been quite a year for our household of pets. A little over a year ago, our first puppy (Noodle), a miniature dachshund was attacked and torn up by a stranger's Great Dane and he underwent surgery. The owner gave up and didn't pay us back for the majority of the vet bill. In the winter of last year, our Ragdoll cat of several years suddenly died of heart failure in front of us which prompted our search for Simba. After adopting an adult cat (Cleo) with kidney/urinary special needs, two weeks ago we found out she has diabetes and now are paying for insulin treatments. The vet bills have adding up and we are in desperate need of help as soon as possible. The funds will be used for paying vet bills from Noodle's and Simba's hospitalizations and Cleo's unexpected medical costs. We are a family that loves animals deeply and they have helped us tremendously through some challenging times in the past years. We would be very grateful for any donations to help offset this unexpected event.
