Funds for Winnie’s recovery

Our baby girl, Winnie, escaped from our apartment during our move July 15th. We immediately took action, searching for her day and night for weeks, to no avail (a special shoutout to our friends and family for their endless efforts of support). We surveyed the area with posters, posted on every missing animal site, just so many sleepless nights not having her with us.

Almost 7 weeks to the day, we received a miracle phone call that she was found underneath the elevator shaft of our old building ALIVE but clinging on to dear life. She’s in the ICU now with severe neurological issues and almost 50% of her body weight depleted. The hospital bills are topping $4,000 to keep her alive. Any help from our friends and family would be greatly appreciated but mostly we want your prayers our girl pulls through. These are terribly tough times but we are oh so grateful our miracle baby is alive! Any donation would go along way. The rehabilitation is going to be long but we are hopeful she is going to come out strong than ever! Thank you guys so much for your continued prayers and light! Xx
