Babe is sick, Fred's Calico cat, she is so special and unique you have to meet her to understand. She understands if your sad she loves unconditionally and saved a life. She is the best friend Fred Compton, a Vietnam War Vet, she is the reason Fred is alive today he suffered from depression paralyzing until babe a stray cat wondered into his life and now lives in his heart and all our hearts. Fred is retired and on a fixed income, his income is limited and he was faced with saving Babe or as the vet put it putting food on your table. Fred and Babe crying and the vet asking are you going to kill her and put her down or try and give her life, but to keep her in our care and the tests and surgery will cost you 1,000 first night, and so on she can't leave it's day two and we just got a update the bill is at 2,000 plus tomorrow another 1,000. Fred looked at the vet and said I can't put a price tag on my best friend she is just like my son who stood in the vet room crying. How can you price tag a life, and this life, babe saved Fred and we need your help to save Babe, Fred isn't eating or talking he cried so hard and gave Babe a kiss on the head and said "I hope I will see you again" and Fred doesn't cry. His heart is breaking we are fighting for Babe she saved our father Fred who fought for our country and Babe is worth every penny, she is a life, she is a best friend, she is Fred reason he continues on. Please help us pay this bill She is at Garden State Veterinary hospital right now, they have her stabilizing but the bills are going to be min 3500, for three days then the surgery. They called today to make sure he can pay or they would put her down, I am praying this message hits your heart, all I am doing is praying and crying. Fred hasn't eaten he is diabetic, and he wont continue without her. Please help save BABE she is more then a cat she is a gift god gave to our father a stray cat wondered up to him and they have never left each other, he loves her more then anything.
