Save Simon

This is Simon, beloved member of the Ewerling cat clan, who went missing on December 29, 2017. His Mom and Dad combed the streets calling for him, knocked on neighborhood doors and left flyers in every mailbox. They were devastated but never gave up hope. His flyers stayed on every street corner weeks after he disappeared. Their tireless efforts paid off when on February 26th, 2018 a neighbor spotted an emaciated and exhausted Simon lying in some grass near the street and knew exactly who to take him to.

Mom and Dad rushed him to his veterinarian. He is now at Blue Pearl Specialty and Emergency Pet Hospital. No one knows what happened to him but he is in critical condition now and they are doing everything they can to save his life. They suspect he was accidentally confined somewhere, perhaps locked in a shed or garage as no one reported seeing him anywhere since the first week or so that he had gone missing. He has lost about 8 lbs which is half of his normal body weight,  is severely dehydrated and anemic, has hepatic lipidosis and is experiencing neurologic dysfunction. His medical bills from the past 24 hours include intensive care hospitalization with medical specialists, oxygen therapy, repeated bloodwork panels, IV fluids and antibiotics, echocardiogram and blood transfusion. His bill has reached $3,500 and he still has a long road ahead of him.  Frankie's Friends Charitable Pet Foundation has already generously donated $1,000 to support Simon. 

Simon is so special.  We want to give him all that medicine has to offer so he has the best chance of survival.  Please, if you can afford to help this sweet boy by donating any amount, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your support!
