THE STORY:

Poor Marko was at the emergency vet a couple of weeks ago after coming out of BARC as an urgent injured kitty. He has been boarding ever since, and we really need a foster for him! He had a large neck wound, and it took the vets a full 48 hours to get him stable. He was severely dehydrated (he was compared to being as dry as a potato chip!), weak, and depressed.  He is doing fabulously now and is as sweet as they come. The picture of the wound was taken when he was sedated at the ER, and it was freshly clipped. It looks very much better now, is healing, and no longer needs to be covered with a bandage. He is a purring machine, lap cat, and total love bug.


In addition to the wound, Marko has eyelids that roll in on his right eye, which means he needs another trip to the specialist to tack back his eyelids. With them rolling in, his eye lashes rub on his eye. We keep ointment on his eye daily to stop it from scratching his eyelid and to keep it comfy for him. 


Everyone who meets him is totally in love with him! All he needs is help keeping the wound clean for this last week, and he has some eye ointment for one. Again, HE NEEDS A FOSTER! We can’t complete his journey without one so we can fix his eyelid and find him a great home.


Rescued Pets Movement saved Jessica, and we discovered she had a tracheal tube still in her throat. She had apparently been treated for an upper respiratory infection, and we continued to treat her for another 2 weeks. Jessica seemed to be doing okay as far as her nose, eyes, and appetite, but she kept wheezing. One minute, she would be running and playing, and then she would stop in her tracks and start gagging and wheezing. We asked the foster to bring her in for x-rays because we were concerned it was pneumonia. That is when we found the tracheal tube. It was at her thoracic entrance and too far down for a regular vet to get without a scope so we rushed her to Gulf Coast Veterinary Services for help.  


The surgeons at GCVS were able to get the tube out successfully, and she was prescribed light steroids for the scar tissue. Her medical was $2,200, which includes her surgery, x-rays, and rounds of antibiotics. The wonderful news is Jessica is now in her forever home, but we are still working to pay the bill.


Our goal is to raise $3,500 to cover all of their medical bills (including Marko’s eye tacking), and we really need the help!
