Help save Stumps the feral kitten!
I've been feeding three feral kittens for the last few months. I was able to get them past their respiratory infections a couple months ago, but then recently they began disappearing. One at a time. It's been torture to watch.
Now there's only one left! Little Stumps. Shes a beautiful and sweet yet timid girl. She was also born without a tail. As of two days ago, she began having motor skill issues. Her kidneys are failing and may have been poisoned!
I've decided that I'm tired of letting these innocent babies die. So I'm sitting a vets office watching the bill get bigger and bigger. We're flushing her system while she in in intesive care.
I can't afford the care that she needs, but have decided that if she pulls through, I'll be officially adopting her. So I'm reaching out for kind-hearted people to help me save this baby's life.
She may be wobbly for the rest of her life and will need care. I'm willing to do that, but first we need to make sure she's healthy and has all her shots. She just needs a fighting chance to make it. She just needs you.
Then I crush some pepcid and add it to the mix. When it's mealtime, I add a little fish oil for the omega3s. So... Party time over here!
Tonight's SubQ was seamless. I swaddled Stumps and nuzzled her face the entire time. She purred nonstop all the way through. A prefect little water balloon. I make a good wet nurse.
Although now she looks like a water balloon from the SubQ. Which was way more chill tonight. She didn't struggle at all and I hummed a little lullaby to her while we did it. She actually purred, the big dummy. And the amount of affection she's showing me is unlike anything I've seen from a cat before. And I've had several in my life.
Follow up appointment is on Tuesday to check her numbers again and go over the ultrasound results with Dr. Romero.
It seems to me that we know just as little as we did before the ultrasound. But there are a whole bunch of new words I didn't know before.
I meet again with Dr. Romero on Monday to discuss the results. There's a part of me that feels like she's getting better and will continue to with all the care and meds. Perhaps I'm not being realistic though.
My many thanks to the VCA Emergency Animal Hospital, David and Dr. Elizabeth Yi for doing the scans at cost! About half what they normally charge. But David saw this campaign and was moved by all the support and love for our little feral Stumperton P. Fluffbutt.
You've made a friend for life ♥
Hey James, we talked recently about the coral tree. If you email me, I will give you the info for a vet that might help pro bono. It's not a guaranty but she's a pretty amazing lady...
