Donation made for Odi
Odi looks like Wilber, I remember when this happened to Wilber. When my friend was driving us to the 2nd Vet in Huntington Beach I
was trying to come to grips with having him put to sleep. I had no idea what was wrong but I was pretty sure he was dying. The Vet examined him, asked
me a few questions then he just needed a xray to confirm his diagnosis. While Wilber was being xrayed, I told my friend (with a stiff
upper lip) I will probably have to put him to sleep. I was bound and determined not to get upset. The Vet came back showed me the xray and sure enough
there was a piece of rubber in Wilber's tummy. We discussed treatment options, one thing was sure Wilber was suffering and would die in the next couple
days if it stays there. So having already accepted the fact he was going to die I said "well I have to put him..." then I literally became
hysterical! I simply didn't have the money, I live month to month sometimes not having enough money to pay my utilities.
I was so lucky to have a Dad who not only had a credit card, but didn't think twice about taking care of the bill.
Odi's Mama isn't as lucky as Wilber and I. Please help them, even if you only give $5.00 or $10.00 it will bring them closer to saving Blitz. Just think if you
had to let your animal die, how hurt you would be. Please, please help save Odi. I'm sure time is running out.

Today was a day I don't want to re-live!! I was a nervous wreck at work this morning hoping my son in law would get to the vet's in time for surgery. I got a call with him telling me he took Teddy by mistake and was on his way home to get Odi. Then he called to tell me they were there & he'd let me know. Then I heard nothing. Finally around 4, he called to say that when they were taking Odi's temperature, he went to the bathroom. They did another x-ray and didn't see anything so the surgeon decided not to cut him!!! But, the BEST thing of all.....when I got home, he was at the door!!! And he ate some tuna. Not a lot but he ATE. I don't know what I appreciate the most, the financial support or the prayers!! You are all TRULY Angels & I'll never forget you.
So, Odi will get better, his diet is changed. He is DEFINITELY an INDOOR cat now. So is Teddy. And we'll start saving for the neutering again.
From our hearts, we say Thank You again. I'm going to bed Odi's sleepin' October 2011 016.JPG 1.25MB 10 downloads

Please take this advise - don't feed your cats people food and remember cats are carnivores. It's the diet that will give them the best chance at a healthy life. It's very very important cats have moisture with every bite, for them to drink water simply isn't good enough. It wasn't till I completely eliminated dry food from Wilber's diet that he completely stopped vomiting. The cats digestive system is very unique.
Everyone with a cat owes it to their cat to educate themselves about the nutritional needs of their feline friends. The best place to do that is at
It's very informative written by a Veternarian who is NOT trying to sell anything. Please, please read it and then read it again! I don't think I could ever go as far as she has, but only feeding can food makes so much sense and for Wilber it has made him healthier. Sorry if I seem to be preaching but I believe it is so important. Just one more thing cats have to have a bowl movement daily, when they don't they are in real trouble.

Since both these boys need to be fixed...I was wondering if those who donated for surgery could have their donations go towards the fix?
If you are in South Florida,email me and I will give you a link to get your kids fixed for $10 (includes rabies shots
