We recently cleared a high kill shelter out of their cats and kittens, and as usual, many of them have become sick since being rescued. We spend on average, at least twice as much per cat than we can ever recoup, and with this group it has been more serious- like 3-4 times already- and it's only been 1 week!
As we took in so many kits, we had to come up with some clever names- and we chose to name them after Thundercats and X-Men, so we have: Lion-o, Lynx-o, Tygra, Jaga, Gambit, Pumyra, Caspin, Snarf, Bengali, Javan, Wilykat, Wilykit, Cheetara, Panthro, Magneto, Professor Xavier, Jean Grey, Wolverine, Rogue, Nightcrawler, Shadowcat, Havok, Stryker, Mystique, & Jubilee. Also some liquors thrown in (as kittens are always a party!): Stoli, Syrah, Sambuca, Sapphire, Zima!
We could really use help to boost our Critical Care Vet Fund, so that we can be prepared for whatever emergency may come our way. Sadly yesterday, we lost baby Tygra who succumbed very quickly to a surprise upper respiratory infection. We spent over $500 on him alone, before he crashed so badly and we knew he wouldn't make it. We are so sad to lose him- but grateful we had those funds to help him...
However, we need further help covering all the current vet bills and to make sure the rest of the babies in our care can avoid this degree of illness- and should they succumb, ensure we can be there with funds to assist in saving their lives again!
