Weighing in now at 4 pounds, Tibbs has been a fighter since day one. He was found with his mom and two sisters at 3 weeks old on a freezing cold December day! First battle complete and a win for Tibbs since mortality rates for kittens younger than 12 weeks is 15-30%!! Tibbs was half the size of his big sisters -- upon him was another battle, and he was ready to fight! As his foster mom provided a quiet place for Tibbs to grow and put on weight, he showed signs of a nasty gastro infection. This infection kept the little fighter from putting on weight, but it was no match for Tibbs as he got the medical care he needed!
As he finally reached furever home weight, Tibbs was ready to head home with his new mom, Sarah, and meet his new big brother, Gus. Tibbs began making himself at home, teasing Gus through the baby gate, and settling right in to his wonderful new family. It was less than two weeks in his new home when he suddenly suffered from his first seizure. Sarah rushed to get him the medical care he needed, where Tibbs was put on to multiple medications and treated for another gastro infection.
Tibbs showed improvement, and after a few sleepy days was back on his feet ready to take on the world... aka the rest of the apartment. He was back to his playful, sweet, goofy self. As he showed great improvement, they adjusted his meds, and a week later, Tibbs had another seizure. This time they were closer together and consistently occurring over night. His mom reached out to the vet and planned to take him in first thing. She didn't sleep a wink, and big brother Gus made sure she knew when Tibbs needed her.
Tibbs spent the day with the staff at Timonium Animal Hospital where they kept a close eye on him and he continued to have seizures, spreading out the frequency a bit, but not enough improvement to go home. Around 7pm, after about 11 hours at the office, Sarah rushed to get Tibbs to the emergency clinic in Bel Air, Animal Emergency Hospital. After a worrisome wait, Sarah confirmed the details of Tibbs' overnight stay, where he will have round the clock care, given additional medications and treatments.
Tibbs needs our help paying for all of his care and treatments. He's going through so much, and this is not Tibbs' last fight! Tibbs is coming up on his 4 month birthday next week and isn't ready to give up! Please show your support for this adorable, playful BCAS alum.
