When I Heard “Surgery,” My Heart Sank

I wanted to say thank you for everything you were able to help with yesterday 4/02/2013.

My cat was a stray that adopted us. We were going to get her spayed, but quickly discovered that she was pregnant. Most places say to go ahead and end the pregnancy and get them spayed, but we couldn’t do that to her. Unfortunately, we didn’t know that she had been hit by a car, it apparently¬†was never treated, and her pelvis was broken in a few places. You could never tell it by how sweet and loving she has always been.

We were pretty excited about the babies that were on their way. She went into labor around 3:30 a.m. in the morning and was having a hard time delivering. The babies were getting stuck and dying. We couldn’t let our little girl suffer like that, so I rushed her to BluePearl. She had one baby left inside, but she was in so much pain that she just didn’t have anything left to give. I was scared. They told me that surgery was the best option for getting it out, but I couldn’t afford it. So they tried some other things to no avail. When they told me that surgery was now the only option, my heart sank.

Then the BluePearl staff told me about Frankie’s Friends charity and how they might be able to help pay for the surgery. I can’t thank BluePearl and Frankie’s Friends enough for everything they have done for my Kitty. She is recovering well after surgery and has one baby that is going to be sincerely spoiled.

Thank you all again. I will definitely be telling everyone how much good you do.
