My best friend has this AMAZING cat. Her name is Tonks. (Nymphadora actually, but we never use that name).
Tonks is very social and befriends people quickly. she loves to go on walks (on leash) at the university where my friend lives and works. She finds feral kittens and points them out to be found, while on her walks, and she complains at the soccer players when they are using "her" field.
She is talkative, and well complain loudly, or just start up a conversation with you. (i love chatting with her on the phone actually. Once my sphynx started meowing back, and we let the two of them have a conversation over the phone for quite a while o__o)
then there is her fur...it's the softest. i mean...chinchilla has nothing on her.
My friend came home to find Tonks in a strange neurological state. She was silent (so weird) and seemed very out of it. she quickly became basically completely unresponsive as she was rushed to the emergency vet.
she stayed over night there, and has since been moved to a specialist.
The good news is, she's becoming responsive again (we just went and visited her and she screamed complaints at us! Never been so relieved to hear a cat SCREAM).
(alexis holding tonks today. so much perkier and actually aware of her surroundings again!!)
(me holding Tonks today. she was not fond of the pictures)
The emergency vet cost over $700, and she's already put down $1300 at the specialist, but they are keeping her overnight again. There is a possible foreign body that may need to be removed tomorrow. either way she's already spent over $2k (not that there is any price limit on the life of a best friend and family member), and the surgery is going add a lot. (as well as the overnight fees, and liver and kidney tests being done)
Basically, Tonks needs all your prayers or good vibes you can sent (as does her human mommy), but also, if you have a dollar or two to spare, there is a gofundme set up to help with her vet bills, especially if the surgery happens. Alexis has already exhausted all of her savings (both her 1k she had set aside for any vet needs for her cat, and her own savings for emergencies).
and if you don't have a dollar to spare, that is ok. you'r prayers/vibes are appreciated, and maybe you can pass on the word? The more positive energy we can get towards this the better! <3
thank you everyone.
