Gogurt’s Vet Fund

35396060_1545005553820922_r.jpegMy fiance and I have owned Gogurt since she was 6 weeks old. She’s been the picture of health since we first brought her home in 2016.  Since then we’ve adopted two more kittens who she’s been absolutely amazing with.
The last 6 months have proven especially hard on us financially. Without going into detail, we weren’t sure we could give our 3 year old daughter a proper Christmas. Somehow we came up with the money to do so, but this has left us with just enough money to pay rent come January 1st. We have zero extra funds.
Then Gogurt got sick. 
She  was  lethargic  and  hiding  in  our  closet  all  day.  She  wouldn’t  touch  her  food  or  water  and  hadn’t  used  the  bathroom.  We  decided  to  take  her  to  the  emergency  vet.  Once  there,  she  was  given   xrays,  saline,  and  the  vets  took  blood  and  urine.  The  emergency  vets  recommended  having  her  stay  24-48  hours  because  her  fever  had  reached  104.8  degrees  and  she  was  dehydrated.  Nothing  showed  up  in  the   xrays  and  nothing  came  back  from  the  blood  test.  We  are  still  waiting  for  the  results  of  the  urinalysis.  
I  did  not  realize  emergency  vets  do  not  accept  payment  plans  and  in  order  to  treat  Gogurt   at  all,  we  were  told  that  we  needed  to  pay  the  low  end  of  the  estimate  in  full.  That  was  $1500.  Obviously  we  can’t  afford  that.  I  was  upfront  and  told  the  vet  all  of  this.  I  was  then  told  Gogurt  would  not  be  permitted  to  stay  and  be  treated.  We  were  never  given  answers.  I  was  sent  home  with  steroids  that  they  said  would  ”hopefully”  kick  the  fever.  I  had  to  sign  a  contract  that  said  I  would  pay  back  the  vet  and  take  out  a  loan  I  can’t  afford  for  $1200.
Now,  2  days  later,  Gogurt  still  has  a  fever  of  104.  I  plan  to  take  her  to  our  normal  vet  first  thing  tomorrow,  but  can’t afford  that  either.  
We  are  looking  to  GoFundMe  because  we  have  simply  run  out  of  options  and  have  no  idea  how  to  pay  this  bill.  Both  my  fiance  and  I  have  2  jobs  and  are  hard-working  people  who  have  hit  a  financial  rough  patch.
Any  and  all  donations  are  incredibly  appreciated.
