Pepper Fund

My name is Etsko Kizawa.  I'm the owner of SOY Restaurant in Rosendale, NY.  I live above the restaurant with my 10-year-old Taiyo and two cats Sage and Pepper.  Last Tuesday Pepper started throwing up violently stopped eating.  After two emergency vet visits over Thanksgiving and over $1000 in tests and numerous shots she made no progress, so she had an emergency surgery last night and they found a long acrylic yarn in her intestines which also severely damaged part of her organs.  She is still in critical condition and she may have only 30-40% chance of recovery after I already accumulated $6000 worth of medical bill.  She needs to be discharged tomorrow early morning to another facility which I don't know how I'm going to manage with heavy snow right now.  I'm a very hard-working caring person all of you who know me would all agree, and just trying to get through this difficult time with your support.  Any support/prayer would help me and I truly appreciate it for my amazing little Pepper, who's fighting for her little life.  She's only 1-1/2 years old.  She was rescued from a bad situation last year as a kitten before I adopted her.  Thank you so much for your help in advance.
