The Ragna Fund - Vet Care for Cats


Kari loves RAGNA GOLDENWHISKERS. He loved his Cat Friends. Kari and friend Teviot are raising funds in Ragna's name for emergency veterinary care for sick and injured cats rescued and brought to Cat Beach Sanctuary Penang.

This beautiful velveteen black cat was born blind. Smart as a whip, he learned his environment, listened carefully, and even learned to "Sit" on command.  He became very sick and passed away on 16 March 2018.  Vet bills totaled more than RM 1500 ($380 USD; 300 Euros)   

He had many cat friends at Cat Beach - and just this week 5 others needed to go on the long journey of an hour or more to a veterinary clinic for special care.  While the decision to take cats to a vet is never made lightly by Cat Beach,  considering the transport issues and vet bills, this No Kill sanctuary makes every possible effort to see each cat receives the care it needs.

Admitted for more than a week, the vet found RAGNA had an unexplained mass pushing on his liver and fluid in his lungs. He needed tests, xrays, ultrasound and more. Many possible causes ranging from cancerous tumors to FIP or other viral or bacterial infections could have been the cause of his illness. 

KARI has devoted the past year of her life to caring for rescued cats at the Cat Beach Sanctuary in Penang, Malaysia.  A professional graphic designer by trade, she has volunteered with dog and cat shelters over the years. At Cat Beach, she knows every one of the 250 or so cats by name as well as their histories and medical needs. Her work rehabilitating, medicating, nursing, and ensuring the cats' care is invaluable. She has the most beautiful heart --  the loving care she gives to animals is truly exceptional.

Out of all the cats she cares for, however, Ragna was Kari's cat, her son. Kari and Ragna bonded when he was a kitten. He lived in her room and slept on her bed. His little tail wagged so hard when he heard her voice.

Please help her friend Teviot and Cat Beach Sanctuary to help Kari meet the costs of veterinary care for Ragna with your generous gift. 

Any funds received in excess of Ragna's bills will go to veterinary care for otherCat Beach cats  found in emergency situations.

Your generosity will be deeply appreciated.
