Well, the kitty named Kitty that is living at Blizzard the Catfather's house went to the vet today.
They did an x-ray and determined that something is in her tummy. It could be a kitten (which would be deceased), or it might be placenta that didn't come out when she gave birth to her kitten (and the four stillborn kittens).
So, Kitty is going to need surgery. If they find it isn't the two things shown above but some other minor problem, the vet will treat it as a spay surgery and the cost will be much less.
However, if it is more complicated surgery, the cost will be in the $700-900 range. The good news is that with donations we have received so far, we were able to pay for the vet visit today (which was $260) and we have over $500 towards the surgery.
Thank you to everycat that has helped out Kitty! Kitty's parents are unable to care for her right now, so a big thank you to Blizzard's Daddy for stepping up and helping out this sweet girl and her new kitten.
The auction over at Mawmee's Facebook album is still going on, so if your Mom or Dad is on FB, send them over there. If you are interested in donating an item to the auction, please contact me!
More importantly, please keep Kitty in your purrs. She desperately needs this surgery before her condition worsens. Right now she is doing okay, but things could take a turn at any time.
We'll be purring for her.
Still purring for Kitty and family.
Catsters furries are wonderful! The Bestest!
Puurrss of lurvs for Kitty and kitten..
we are sending purrrs, and gonna donates some too fur this sweet kitty.
Thanks for all the purrs - Kitty can definitely use these too! Thank you, Kitty Pryde!
Are you close to the goal amount? Hopefully she'll be able to get that surgery asap!
We are very close to having all we need - for the surgery that would be more complicated.
What do you mean? I thought this funding was for the surgery.
It is for the surgery. The vet indicated that the surgery could be less complicated if there is nothing inside (and they would do a spay on her), but she suspects that there is a dead kitten or placenta inside (the x-ray shows something but they aren't sure what) which would be more complicated (and more expensive). Does that clear up what I meant?
yes thank you.
So, what I meant was that when the vet quoted $700-900 range for the (more complicated) surgery, we are very close to having that total.
GOT IT! She needs that surgery asap. Purring she'll be okay.
Blizzard's Dad is going to call tomorrow to get the surgery scheduled!
Thank goodness! Thanks for helping and keeping us posted Samoa.
Purring for kitty,

Thanks for the update, Blizzard! We'll be purring that the surgery and recovery are successful and quick!
