An Angel's Notes for the Day

Extra loud purrs needed for Vern this weekend!

Hi everyone. Been talking with Vern's mom and we just have no idea what's going on with him. It's so bizarre, one day he's not walking, hardly eating, not pooping and the next day it's like someone flips a switch on and he surprises his mom by climbing off the bed, going downstairs by himself and sneaking up behind her purring! Then also scarfing his food down! We're both baffled.

She's already made the appointment with the neurologist and since it's a 4 hour drive, she and a good friend of hers will be going on Sunday and staying at a pet friendly motel that's literally 4 minutes from the specialist. Vern is an EXCELLENT traveler so there's no worries about that, he loves the car! Strange little dood, I used to puke my brains out in the car every single time.

Anyways, Monday will be a very long day for them as he has to be put under anesthesia for two hours, then monitored for another couple of hours afterwards to make sure he's fit to go home. Then it's a 4 hour drive back! Yikes! Nancy sure is a wonderful mom to do all of this for him.

I told her I would ask everyone to do some collectively massive, loud purring all this weekend and ESPECIALLY on Monday! The auction has raised almost $1,000 so far and counting for another 11 days so please keep it up! If there's any chance at all that surgery will help him, we need to help him get it. He's such a fighter and he does not want to give up. A spirit like that deserves a chance at life.

Thank you all so much for all you've been doing for him right from the get go. Vern and Nancy are awfully special to me and I know also to so many of you. You're all wonderful kitties and parents and whatever happens, just know that you did your very best in so many ways for a wonderful little boy named Vern. Regardless of the outcome, Vern is my hero!

So let's start purring and rumbling the skies (no storms though, just purrs)!

Luv and hugs
Alex and mommy Lisa

I've got my super duper meezer purrs going for Vern. Mommy and me are so happy that so far the going bids on our catnip toys is almost 50$ We are so thrilled to help them out in anyway we can. We're hoping for Vern to pull through. We know he can do it!

I really hope we can raise more money for them. Your mom is awesome for thinking up the auction in the first place. It is so horrible when you are at the vet and they are telling your mom/dad all the prices for the tests and treatment and your mom is all worried about how to pay for them. My mom still gets upset thinking about when that happened when her cat before me was very sick. She felt helpless and terrified.

I think it was actually Vern's mom who thought of it first, I can't remember. But my mom and Lucy's mom had to encourage her to do it. She really didn't think it would bring in enough money but was so surprised and felt it was worth it to try again. It turned out to be an excellent idea so if you ever hear of anyone who's stuck in that position, it's worth mentioning how this has really helped!
