Mona's Road to Recovery

$260 of $3,500 goal

Raised by 8 people in 17 months
Mona is a 14-year-old Maine Coon full of love. My wife has had her since she was a kitten and she is the most important thing to her.

Our fur baby Mona just recently slipped a disc in her spine which resulted in limited mobility around the house. In the past couple of weeks, things got worse. She lost the ability to use her back legs and struggles to get around. She still manages to eat her food, drink her water, and even still uses the litter box despite her struggle. She is a champ!

My wife just took her to a Neurology Specialist and found out she will need surgery in order to return to her happy normal self. She should be back home either Friday, June 23rd or Saturday, June 24th. 

Mona will be getting the surgery regardless, which will cost around $6,000. Mona is our top priority and our fur baby. We wouldn't have made any other choice but to get her back to good health. Once she is out of surgery, there will be a 4-6 week recovery period.

Any help is much appreciated for Mona's road to recovery.

Hello, everyone,

I wanted to give an update since it has been a little while. Mona is making it day by day. She has begun her physical therapy at home 3 times a day. Sarah and I are working hard trying to get her to get back up on 4 paws. Currently, she still can't walk and still needs to go through a lot of physical therapy before we get to that stage. We just got a security camera so we can keep an eye on her for when we are not home. I'll try to post some more images in the coming days and some videos of her physical therapy.

Thanks for those who have donated, even the smallest amount helps us! There are still a lot of cost for supplies and medicine, but we are looking mainly to get help with her surgery bill (image attached). I have updated our goal since we have received donations via mail.
