I am devastated to let you guys know that sweet Junebug has been hit by a car and is injured very badly. She has severe bruising on her left lung, a mangled tail, fractured pelvis, and a fracture on her shoulder. She is going to need extensive surgery and medication if she is going to have a chance. I know that times are tough right now and we are all struggling to get by, but this sweet little cat is my entire world. If you have anything extra to give, I would be deeply grateful to you.
*Update* Luckily, June was able to come out of the hospital sooner than anticipated as she was able to stabilize. Her tail has been removed and the back of her body was sewn back together. She has a lot of bruising and sutures. Her hips are also broken and dislocated. Needless to say, June is very uncomfortable and need a lot of attention to keep her wounds clean and her pain down.
Fortunately, because she came out of the hospital today, her vet bill was lower than I anticipated (hence me lowering the goal). Because her recovery requires so much attention, I am unable to work during this time so part of that money is going to supplies (like gloves, pee pads, saline solution, and medication refills) as well as helping towards my food and rent. I seriously appreciate all that everyone has done and your support is invaluable to me. I am overwhelmed by the love that June and I have received and despite the horror of this whole situation, I truly feel charmed (like the 90's witch show, not like you're shmoozing me). Anyways, I am deeply grateful to you all and will continue to update you on June's recovery!
Unfortunately, June is going to need hip surgery after-all if we want to avoid her having chronic pain/long-term problems with mobility. I have once again raised the donation goal if you could send this link to anyone with a love for animals and the means to help. Thank you so much to everyone for your support.
Another update 1/5/21
Unfortunately, June's follow-up appointment did not go well. When she arrived, her body temperature was low and she had low blood pressure. They did some blood work and found that her white and red blood cells were very low and that she had very high levels of a liver enzyme that should have gone down after her surgery. She has been given a blood transfusion and some fluids and is going to need to be transferred to another vet so that she can be monitored more closely. This cat means so much to me and has shown so many people love. Please share far and wide so that I can do everything I can to help her.
