ABC7 Reporter Veronica Miracle was reporting on the Woolsey Fire in Ventura County when firefighters rescued this kitty that we've named "Miracle". The firefighters gave the cat to Veronica and her team so they could keep fighting the wildfires. Veronica and her team were able to find an emergency vet and the cat is now in the ICU in fair condition. The burns were to his legs but his fur kept him from being in worse condition. 

The vet bill is going to cost over $4,000 and the family who owns the cat lost their home in the fires. We can be a bright spot in this terrible fire season by raising the money needed to pay for the cat's medical bills. Anything extra will be donated to the family who lost their home and own this cat. The funds will first be used to pay the cat’s vet bill, some which was paid by an ABC7 employee who will be reimbursed and then the rest of the vet bill will be paid this week by Team Miracle(once we withdraw the funds). The remaining money will go to the family to help them recover. ABC7 reporter Veronica Miracle has been in touch with the family several times to make arrangements. We will write a check to the family with the remaining funds once they are cleared out of GoFundMe.

Thank you from Veronica Miracle, myself, and the vet team that saved this "Miracle" cat. *** This campaign is not affiliated with ABC, ABC7, or any related entity"

Hi all! Here is a photo of Tipper, taken just a few days ago. He is doing very well and sends his best wishes for you to all have a great holiday season. You can see in the photo his ears are a little beat up and the photo doesn't show the injuries to his legs, which are still healing but doing very well. He no longer has to wear big socks to cover his burns because they have healed so well. Tipper still sees the vet pretty often and will continue to do so for the next few months. Thank you again to everyone for the donations. I will be closing the donations. If you want to make a donation separately, please message me or feel free to donate to your local animal shelter or rescue.

Hi all - Tipper's vet bills, including surgeries, a lot of meds, monitoring him, etc. were all very expensive. We continue to raise funds and hope that we can finish this campaign and close it in the next week or two.

Update time! Tipper was released from the hospital this week! He still has a long road for recovery because his burns were pretty bad. However, his release is great news. Tipper & his family want to say thank you to everyone who donated. He will be going back every week or so for follow up appointments, changing his bandages, etc. A very happy holidays to everyone and a big "Purr" and "Meow" from Tipper.

Hi all - Tipper (who is a boy, my mistake) is still recovering at the vet hospital. They are waiting to remove some burned skin and tissue until he heals a bit more from some other issues. He still is improving but has a ways to go. Thank you all for keeping him in your thoughts.
