Hi Lisa. Woof woof Pockets.
We're glad you're here. We didn't have any new sponsored cases for a long time. It may sound weird, but I think CRF is not so bad, since you can manage it for a long time with success. My kitty Guy went on for five years after his diagnosis and enjoyed a good old age, and his sister Lola is now at almost five years since her diagnosis and she still ikels ot hloep mee type. Enough Lola ... I'm busy here!
I made an arrangement with my vet to provide me fluids and needles under a "Brico price match" agreement, which is still about $75 for a case of Lactated Ringers Solutions, drip sets, and Terumo needles. Lola gets the 20-gauge ultra thin wall -- no kitty harpooning in this house. By the way, I have a box of Terumo 18-gauge needles I could send. They say "TW," so I guess that means thin wall instead of ultra thin.
Lisa, when Guy was a sponsored pet here at IMOM, I posted a new picture every week and told lots of stories about his action adventures and how impossibly cute he was. (His thread is now in the Loving Memory section.) I don't know for sure, but I think these pictures and stories helped people feel that they knew Guy, and maybe it helped with his sponsorship. This couldn't hurt for Pockets. But most important, when Guy reached the end of his life, I was so grateful that I was able to share his life with his "aunties" here at IMOM. I would do it all over again even with no sponsorship. One of the IMOM volunteers posted once that she paid to tell stories about her cat on a website in order to share the cat's life. What a privilege it was for me to be able to share Guy's life as a member of this community!
Best of luck!
Mike, the cutest angel Guy, and LBK Lola
