Any news?
Thank you for asking I’ve been taking care of my girl and totally forgot to tell you guys that my baby is making a full recovery! 🥰 she wasn’t as far gone as I thought I had been giving her kitten food and the vet said it was good to help her put weight on and amazingly I already see and feel a difference in her body, she’s still not 100% in strength but I’d say 80%. I wanted to thank everyone who actually had advice in helping me care for her. I’m thankful for finding this forum when I was at my wits end especially when I got screwed over by that one vet. Anyway nothing negative just positive vibes. Thank you cat lovers for helping this mama care and save my sweet baby girl xoxo and thank you nartyteek for checking in on us 😊

That's awesome! I can't tell you how many times I've come to this site when I'm freaking out over one of my cats. It's what it's here for.
Yes, I was so distraught and upset over not getting help plus far in the country I asked my husband how do I find a cat forum FIND ME ONE! Lol thank goodness someone stays level headed in our family because I was just like I don’t care I’ll try anything I’m not giving up till I find help ! I’m so very thankful 🥰

Try to find a cat only hospital. Can also try your local shelter for resources or organizations that will help

Uh oh. Late to the party
Lol you’re fine I still appreciate your advice and to answer your question I’m in Virginia in the country, and her ex-vet is in another county which is why I got so upset because they knew how far I was driving never mentioned I was limited in time and as we were on our way of course we blew a tire because hey why not add to the obstacles in saving my girl lol. Add on the fact because it was a trailer tire that blew we had 3200lbs of lead bars because my husband pours fishing sinkers for a living. So basically our paycheck was bounced off the trailer because when the tire blew it bounced so violently that the straps broke thankfully no one was behind us but 4 state troopers passed us no one stopped and then the vet receptionist called and told me since we weren’t there now their full and maybe I could make an appointment for the following week knowing what condition Mew was in. So now add in me crying wondering if my girl is going to make it then trying to help my husband clear the road pick up all these bars also waving cars to another lane so my husband doesn’t get hit by a car trying to get the rim off just feeling defeated. The lord did send an angel who pulled over had a better jack, drove me to get another tire drove me back even had 3 brand new straps and wouldn’t take any money, needless to say he showed us that there are still selfless people who want to help. Then when finally getting to more of a city area the hospital closed I just cried and then nobody wanted to help without give me the money first and mind you over the phone not even treatment, that’s why I said I know there are cat lovers on a forum that will help because they know fur babies mean just as much as our own babies. So yea I know in my original post I was saying hey I need help for free it was because of the bs all these animal hospitals were doing I was frustrated and I did unfortunately have one Karen on here that wanted to make a comment about how money should never be an issue which btw only people with money say and also that my cats a living animal, which upset me because how ridiculous a statement to make when I’m begging for help, aside from that one I really am grateful for you all 🥰

Wow! I'm so sorry all that all happened to you. Yes, the entitled believe money can be pulled out of thin air. Not having money doesn't mean you don't love her. You did everything you could. Thankfully, she's recovering! I picked up on what you were saying because I am always in a situation where money is not readily available. Coming from a farm family, my attitude is natural. Your efforts were heroic.

I appreciate your concern and that’s why I came looking for a place like this because I know not everyone has the means or might have a farm where sometimes you have to be the vet and it means so much that you all not only helped but continue to check on us and she’s my girl I would do whatever I can, thank you so much for your kind words Mew is doing fantastic 🥰

T The3bears , how is our girl today? Still improving, I hope and pray! Do stick around just for the fun of it, and at some point in time, your experience is going to help someone else who is desperate.
Our girl is almost 100% everyday just better than the next, I was hopeful but there was a voice telling be prepared, which I said not today satan lol. I most certainly will stick around and I hope I can pay it forward. Or just to see the happy stories as well Mew has pretty much not left my side and lap , pretty much my shadow lol which she has from the age of 4 mos has always been around except this time around even if I have to go to the store I’m like you’re coming with mama 😆 I need to get one of those sweaters with a pouch in the front she’s happiest when she’s purring on my chest 🥰🥰🥰 I can’t thank you all enough I feel deep in my heart without you all this story might’ve turned out differently! Feeling so blessed 🙏🙏🙏
