Boo's tail broke!? We're not sure if it's broken or dislocated, but poor Boo's beautiful fluffy tail can't move. Her tail has a bump on it and points straight down now. She appears to be uncomfortable, experiencing some stress and is sleeping more. A vet online recommended she go to the doctor's right away.
This fundraiser is for the costs of the vet bill, to find out what's wrong and hopefully fix it, so Boo can wave her fluffy tail again pain-free! Estimates over the phone are $200 for 2 x-ray views, $100 for a vet visit, $100 for tax and medication.
The accident happened this week. Here is a video showing the broken tail.
Boo lives at my daughter's house in Eastern Washington. She and her husband work very hard, but this extra expense came at a bad time for their little family. This kitty makes them so happy.
This is how Boo started her life. (below) She had a terrible eye infection that eventually claimed her right eye. She was found alone. She was fostered through SCRAPS (Spokane Animal Protective Services) and my daughter adopted her in August 2020.
Boo is a rescue kitty. Adopted at 4 months old. Now she is fluffy and nice. My daughter says, "We LOVE Boo! She has a playful spirit and brings so much joy to our home. She was wrestling with our older cat Spooky when her tail broke. We are very worried about our little kitty."
Look how fluffy she is now!
Here is a video of her tail in action. My daughter playing fetch with her on the basement steps.
In her own words...
"My name is Boo and I was born alone in this world sick and broken, but through the kindness of strangers, I have been able to recover and live my best kitty life. Up until now, that is. I love living life to the fullest but I overdid it playing with my big bro and now my tail is hurt. I use to raise that tail up sky-high every day but what I once loved is now in pain. Mom wants to help get me back onto the path to recovery so I can continue forward conquering all life has to offer, but she needs a little help with the vet bill. Big bro used up all the funds this last two months with his abscess and now I need help too! Would you be willing to give a helping paw toward a one-eyed cutie like me? Requesting $400 to cover a 2 view x-ray, clinic visit, tax, and any additional medication. Having a hurt tail means I could have incurred nerve damage. This is the first visit to diagnose what happened."
Animals are so important during these tough times and ALL times. They give love unconditionally. Please help sweet Boo.
Thank you. She sends you happy purrs and "thank you" meows.
