Update on Methos

Filed under: News — Scottie @ 15:17

I am sorry that money is keeping the needed medical care from your special friend. I really hope we can keep the fund going and raise enough money to cover the medical treatment and the medications. I have been in the situation you are in. We had a cat we loved and had saved from abuse. George ( his name ) went into seizures and we rushed him to our vet. In the space of two days he went in and out of seizures. We kept putting the mounting bills on our credit cards. Our vet said they couldn’t help him unless we had more tests and scans which cost us more and more money. We were fast running out of funds, but felt we had to help anyway we could. We loved him. So we kept putting the costs of his care on the credit cards. He died after three days, after the last tests said nothing would help and only measures to make his ending easier. He died after three days of the best care the veterinarian could give and he had every chance because we basically overloaded our credit cards. For the three days we had them fight to save him, it took us four to five years to pay the debt off. We understand the tremendous costs, the intense love for the pet, and the sinking feeling you will run out of money before they have the chance to get better. The idea that you could do something if you could only afford it haunts every one of us of limited means who has a pet get ill. It haunted us and we were lucky. Today we do not have the resources we had then. If our two beloved cats got ill now we wouldn’t be able to get them the care we did for George. So I understand the heartache of the family here. I would ask you to think of giving even a few dollars if you have not given. It hurts so much to see them sick and not be able to help. Thank you. Many hugs to the family, many best wishes to Guardian cat. Hugs

I’m just going to copy and paste the update I put on FB.  This weekend has been exhausting and I am going to give the cat his meds and go to bed.

Yesterday was a long and exhausting day, and the outcome was not as positive as I was hoping. My beloved boycat Methos has an enlarged heart and fluid in his chest; essentially he is in early congestive heart failure, resulting froma  condition called HCM. They put him in an oxygen tent to help him breathe better and wanted to keep him overnight, but ( I will be completely frank because I know no other way) we could not afford the $1000 deposit, so they gave him more oxygen and because his distress is only mild right now, they gave him lasix to help get rid of the fluid on his chest and they allowed us to take him…

  1. Thank you. I had to go into bankruptcy, partly because of trying to keep my mom’s last cat alive (after she was gone for years). I wish I had more to give. But if everyone who sees the posts just gives 5, that adds up so fast!

    • You are so wonderful. I also wish I could give more. Ron had me give more than I felt we could because he cut back on groceries until pay day. We are happy to do it. If after we pay our bill on payday we will give more as we can. We know how this situation can hurt so bad. Be well, hugs
