Scout doesn’t deserve to die! Our vet called us tonight and asked if our rescue could take in this 3 year old owner relinquished tabby. He has a urinary blockage and his owners didn’t want to pay for treatment and asked for him to be euthanized.
The vet asked us if we could take him under our wing. He will need a catheter inserted into his urethra and left there, while hospitalized, for three days to break up the blockage and make sure it has cleared. Blood and urin lab work. And they will neuter him while he is under anesthesia.
The estimate is just over $2,000. Any donations will help cover the cost. If desired, donations can go straight to his vet bill at All Day Pet Hospital, under Sunrise Rescue.
After “Scout” is in the clear, healthy, and issues are resolved, he will be available for adoption. We can’t image what this poor guy feels like right now. He must be in so much pain, confused, and very scared.
A very special adoption yesterday! “Twinkle” survived panleukapenia, malnutrition, a ruptured eye ulcer, round worms, tape worms, fleas, and an upper respiratory infection, ALL AT THE SAME TIME!! Adopted by her loving foster, Samantha. We wish you both a happy life together!
What do you do when you have sent a cat to 8 different vets and none of them can figure out what’s wrong with him? You send him to vet #9. Originally pulled from the euthanasia list at the shelter in Moreno Valley, “Hal” and his breathing issues are sounding worse. This poor guy has been like this for about a year now. Multiple antibiotics, x-rays, even a guided camera down his throat and we can’t figure out why he breathes with a curdling snore, and always has a congested, boogery nose. He feels stiff when you pet him due to increased muscle development from over use of his auxiliary muscles to breathe.
Two vets have recommended euthanasia, but Hal is a happy guy! He doesn’t seem to know the difference. Loves to play, is extremely affectionate, and particularly likes kittens. We even had a problem with him sneaking them away from new moms, taking them off to his own space to cuddle and groom their fur. He’s a super sweet boy! We currently have him hospitalized and on IV antibiotics to see if it makes a difference. More x-rays, blood labs, breathing treatments and another nose culture to check for fungus and bacteria, again. Last resort will be an expensive MRI. But there is a chance that Hal could stay this way for the rest of his life with an unknown prognosis, considering him un-adoptable, and in hospice. We refuse to give up on him!
Folks, we need a temporary foster for an extremely affectionate and beautiful mama kitty and her two kittens that were still nursing and don’t weigh enough to be fixed yet. The mom is spayed and they are vaccinated. All are healthy with no medical needs. They just need maybe two weeks. If anyone is interested or knows anyone who might be, send them my way. We can provide all supplies. 🙂
