  1. The adventures of Cody

    Tracy: I found this poem when Buzzy went to the Bridge and I've always thought that it was so true: Poem For Cats And God asked the feline spirit Are you ready to come home? Oh, yes, quite so, replied the precious soul And, as a cat, you know I am most able To decide anything for myself. Are you coming then? asked God. Soon, replied the whiskered angel But I must come slowly For my human friends are troubled For you see, they need me, quite certainly. But don't they understand? asked God That you'll never leave them? That your souls are intertwined. For all eternity? That nothing is created or destroyed? It just is....forever and ever and ever. Eventually they will understand, Replied the glorious cat For I will whisper into their hearts That I am always with them I just am....forever and ever and ever. Author Unknown God's Speed Sweet Cody. Sending hugs, Renee

    We will be closing Butch's case. Kristy tells me that Butch is not doing well; I hope that she will post and let everyone know what is going on with her sweet boy. Renee H DPF Committee

    Some of us will also be chatting on 7/4 in honor of Tigger's birthday; Robin always referred to him as her "Yankee Doodle Dandy." Everyone is welcome. Renee

    Here's a link to the other financial aid sources from IMOM: http://www.imom.org/fa/others.htm But, I would try this one first: Feline Outreach [www.felineoutreaach.org] "Feline Outreach is a charitable organization formed to promote the routine and medical care of companion animals, particularly cats." (Note: Feline Outreach was founded by people who have diabetic cats.) You might mention that you were already helped by IMOM for Tyson and that I (refer to me as Renee & Buzzy) suggested you contact them and that they can contact me if they need any information. (Feline Outreach was created by some folks from the Feline Diabetes Message Board.) Then, here are some others: American Animal Hospital Association [www.aahahelpingpets.org] "The heartbreak happens all too often? A pet owner is unable to afford treatment and their sick or injured companion animal pays the price. If the owner is elderly, disabled or on a fixed income, the cost of care may be too much of a stretch for their pocketbook. Perhaps they have been victimized by crime, property loss or a job layoff and are experiencing a temporary financial hardship? Making it too difficult to afford pet care. And some animals, brought to clinics by Good Samaritans, don't have an owner to pay for treatment. Whatever the situation, the fact remains the same: When sick or injured animals are unable to receive veterinary care, they suffer. Through the AAHA Helping Pets Fund, veterinary care is possible for sick or injured pets even if they have been abandoned or if their owner is experiencing financial hardship." Angels 4 Animals [www.angels4animals.org] "Angels4Animals, a non-profit organization and a program of Inner Voice Community Services, has a mission to serve as the guardian angel of animals whose caretakers find themselves in difficult financial situations. At Angels4Animals we believe that animal owners should not have to say goodbye to the animals that they love. Our work is accomplished in conjunction with veterinary clinics across the country, eager to assist as many animals, and their owners, as possible. Our services range from financial aid to complete treatment to those pets and pet owners in need." Care Credit [www.carecredit.com] A credit card company for health care, including veterinary care. "Care Credit, the leader in patient/client financing, has helped more than 3 million patients/clients get the treatment or procedures they needed and wanted. With a comprehensive range of plan options, for treatment or procedure fees from $1 to over $25,000, we offer a plan and a low monthly payment to fit comfortably into almost every budget." Cats in Crisis [www.catsincrisis.org] "Cats in Crisis Inc. is a 501©(3) non-profit organization dedicated to helping individuals and humane organizations care for cats with chronic or emergency medical conditions through financial and fundraising assistance." Feline Veterinary Emergency Assistance (FVEAP) [www.fveap.org] "The NEED & The HELP: Seniors, People with disabilities, People who have lost their job, Good Samaritans who rescue a cat or kitten - any of these folks may need financial assistance to save a beloved companion." The Feline Veterinary Emergency Assistance Program is a nonprofit 501 ©(3) organization that provides financial assistance to cat and kitten guardians who are unable to afford veterinary services to save their companions when life-threatening illness or injury strikes. Help-A-Pet [www.help-a-pet.org] "Our efforts focus on serving the elderly, the disabled, and the working poor. For lonely seniors, physically/mentally challenged individuals and children of working parents, pets represent much more than a diversion." Shakespeare Animal Fund [www.shakespeareanimalfund.com] "Anyone can apply for funds, but SAF offers assistance primarily to those on fixed incomes or with annual incomes below $35,000. Exceptions are made depending on circumstances. It is always a one-time grant" The Pet Fund [thepetfund.com] "The Pet Fund is a registered 501© 3 nonprofit association that provides financial assistance to owners of domestic animals who need urgent veterinary care. Often animals are put down or suffer needlessly because their owners cannot afford expensive surgery or emergency vet visits. Companion animal owners must often make the difficult decision to put an animal down or neglect urgent medical needs because of the costs involved. The purpose of the Pet Fund is to work towards a future where decisions about companion animal medical care need never be made on the basis of cost." United Animal Nations [www.uan.org] "The mission of LifeLine is to help homeless or recently rescued animals suffering from life-threatening conditions that require specific and immediate emergency veterinary care. We strive to serve Good Samaritans and rescue groups who take in sick or injured animals. In certain cases, LifeLine can also assist senior citizens and low-income families pay for immediate emergency veterinary care." Hope this helps. Renee

    Mary, I sent you an e-mail yesterday with some other groups to contact that might be able to help Felix. If you didn't get the e-mail, please let me know so that I can make sure to get the information to you. Hugs, Renee
  7. I'd like to introduce you to Bear, our latest diabetic dog in need. Bear was diagnosed with diabetes in February of this year. Bear's caretaker, Mark is the sole support for his family of four, his wife is unable to work due to a medical condition, and Bear's needs have become more than Mark's current ability to provide. Mark is looking for sponsors to help with Bear's ongoing diabetes treatment, including insulin and syringes and follow-up vet care. For more information on Bear, please go to: <a href="http://www.imom.org/pin/dpf/bear-carpenter.htm" target="_blank">http://www.imom.org/pin/dpf/bear-carpenter.htm</a> (Donations for this Pet in Need should be designated: "DPF �" Bear Carpender" to ensure your money goes to the proper account.) Please help Mark and Bear if you can! Renee H. IMOM Diabetic Pet Fund

  10. Zoom Manly

    Please note that IMOM has not yet had a chance to review or discuss the Cushings diagnosis and is not at this time raising funds for treatment. Renee H DPF Committee
  11. Zoom Manly

    Hello IMOM Angels, Zoom has recently been to the vet for a check-up and her vet would like to test for Cushings. Cushings is an disease of the adrenal gland and can go hand in hand with diabetes and can make diabetes harder to control. Zoom's vet has given IMOM an estimate of $263-$283 for the Cushings test, however, Zoom's monthly sponsor amount does not cover this expense and Zoom's fund is short of the amount needed. Susan has pledged $50 toward the Cushings test, leaving $213-$233 that we are hoping our IMOM angels can help raise. Your generosity is greatly appreciated. Renee H DPF Committee
  12. Butch Perkins

    Kirsten, So glad that Butch is feeling lots better. I almost posted yesterday that everyone says the 3rd day after surgery is usually the worst for a person, maybe it goes for Butch too. Renee
  13. Butch Perkins

    Poor little kid, I'm sure he does feel pretty poorly at the moment; another 24 hours will make a world of difference. Also, something my "kids" like when they aren't feeling well is meat babyfood (no onions); it's smelly and easy to eat and easy on their systems. Renee
  14. Butch Perkins

    Glad you and Butch are home and that things went well. Sounds like you both need some rest and recovery. Hugs to Butch! Renee
  15. Butch Perkins

    I'll be thinking good thoughts for Butch today and hoping his dental goes fast and well and will be anxiously waiting for an update. Renee
