2 yr old kitty Starlight who is under observation, having a hard time breathing, a fever, is fighting an infection the vets have warned may spread or have started to spread to her brain. Emergency vet bill.
2 year old Starlight was previously adopted by my best friend and her 6 year old daughter after they moved out of my home and into their new home. They were both huge animal lovers and needed to open their hearts for a special friend, adopted Starlight when she was 1 years old. I instantly fell in love! Everytime my 3 year old son would sleep over at their house, Starlight would follow him everywhere and sleep with him all night! In July 2019, I took Starlight in to take care of her while my best friend moved back home after being diagnosed with leukemia AML. She visited Starlight at least 2x a week and always spoke about overcoming her cancer and moving again to a new home and being reunited with Starlight. She loved this cat just as much as she loved her only child, imb fact, Starlight was her other child! Her daughter would cry everytime they had to go home after visiting their Kitty. In the beginning of December, Jess suddenly passed away. We were all devastated and deeply saddened...I lost my heart, my second half, my sister from a different mother and father of 10 years... we were like twins and inseparable and always together. Life has become so hard to get through each day without my best. The only thing that made it manageable was Starlight... and my will to take care of her everyday in hopes that she will be reunited with her previous owner's daughter to reconnect that special bond they once both shared. The memories they move had with her Kitty and her mother, the good days. Just 2 nights ago, Starlight started having trouble breathing, and coughing, which in believed was a hairball... the next morning it became clear it was not that, and I drove her immediately to the emergency vet. She's been there overnight and will be again tonight. I couldn't dare sit back and watch her struggle with every breath clearly uncomfortable, in pain and sick. I have posted a picture of the estimate of the bill the vet gave to me, it will be above the $2,000 mark by the time she is hopefully discharged plus her meds and overnight care. The other pictures are recently when she was active and playing, her amazing personality, lap-cat self. Please anything will help. I couldn't bear to lose her too, she is the last part I have of my best friend and I fear I will fail my best friend if I lose her. The vets need payment before they can continue her treatment and meds. They also told me if finances were too tight, euthanasia is an option. It is NOT an option.
