Cabana (of Casey and Cabana): an update, an emergency visit, and a gofundme


 


Many of you remember Casey and Cabana, two of four feral kittens I fostered about a year ago.  They were adopted by a lovely woman who graciously allowed me to come and visit them after she brought them home.  It was wonderful to meet her and spend time with the kittens.

Following her on Facebook, I get to see them from time to time and I get updates on their lives.  They have been doing rather well, enjoying their home with the goats and horses and dogs and birds. Oh yeah, and their mom and dad 😻

In January, their mom, Lauren, posted that her dog Autumn was attacked by a neighbor dog and I got to watch as the family banded together to nurse her back to health. Then the addition of a new dog and recently she announced her engagement and it totally MMD. 



Then yesterday she posted that Cabana was in the emergency clinic. 

We need prayers for Cabana. He is at the vet with a possible foreign body. They'll be doing an ultrasound later today to determine the course of action. I need my sweet boy back home

Isn't that photo enough to break your heart?? We have all been there, not really sure what is going on and hearing they can't just fix him immediately and having to wait and see. After a rough night for everyone, they were thankfully able to bring him home without having surgery, but that still left them with a $2,000 emergency vet visit. 

Home at last

Lauren and her husband-to-be have had quite a few set backs this year. Covid and the safety measures taken to prevent the spread have hit both of them. While they were fortunate enough to keep their jobs, both have suffered the losses of wages, hours, and income.  They were also hoping to get married quickly, in the next month or so, because Lauren's father is in poor health and they want him to be able to be there. And now this.

I KNOW this is a difficult time for all of us, and if you are seeing even the thought of a gofundme and are saying "I just can't" please know I totally respect that and I wish you absolutely the best as we all navigate this very difficult time for all of us. I hate fundraising in general because I know so many are hurting financially for any number of reasons. But if you could spare a dollar or two, or twenty, I know Lauren would be incredibly appreciative.
