Please Help Annie

This is Annie, from Lucy's Lounge, and she desperately needs our help.  We are planning an auction for her on the Helping Our Needy Furiends blog....if you have items to donate, please email them to Marg at
and bless you for helping.

There is also a "chip-in" button on their blog and on ours if you could help....every little bit helps, you know.....:)

This is Annie's story in a nutshell and you can keep current with what is happening on their blog....see link above her picture:

"Her previous owners were going to take her to a shelter if they couldn't find a home for her before they moved on September 1st.  We took her in hopes of finding her a home, and have decided this will be her forever home." 

"Just one day after we brought her home, she started peeing blood.  After several trips to the vet, a urinalysis and an x-ray, it was discovered she has stones." 

"The vet called me last Friday with the estimate.  It's going to cost $2,000 for the surgery to remove the stones.  In my wildest worries about the price, I never thought it would be this much.  I spoke with Trish at Katnip Lounge, who by the way, is wonderful and funny too, just like her blog. Her Grayce had this same procedure in Las Vegas for about $800. Plus, her surgery was laproscopic, which seems to have a considerable less recovery time.  I've called three vets in this area.  They all charge the same price, if not more, and none of them does the laproscopic surgery." 

"I've received several ideas and even some vets to call.  I'll definitely be calling around starting Tuesday after the holiday weekend to try to find a cheaper vet. I really appreciate all the encouragement and info!  I need to also look into somehow making some extra money but I'm not sure where to start."

"Although the blood seems to have abated considerably, Annie is still going to the litter box constantly.  Other than that, she seems to feel well.  She loves to play.  She's also spending a little less time under the bed and isn't growling quite as much.  Lucy and Simba have been wonderful."
Thank you for helping our friends......Lucy and Simba have been friends of ours for ages, and we're so happy to see Annie join their home.

We've been following Annie's story and hope her Mum's able to get quotes from other vets...are there animal organisations that subsidize veterinary fees? Especially for those recently "rescued" like Annie?

Sparkle said...

I am hoping that Annie's human can come up with a solution for this. Although we live in southern California, as does she, we are very far apart distance-wise, so I have not been able to come up with a good vet for her.

We hope you can find a lovely vet who can help. So much less intrusive to have keyhole. Sending hugs :)xxxxxxxxxx

I really hope that Annie is able to have the EASIER version of the surgery.

Poor Annie - we are pleased she seems to be settling well at Lucy's Lounge. We are going to help mum see if she anything for the auction and we are sure we'll manage to squeeze something from her purse soon!

I contributed to her chip in and I'll look if there is anything to contribute to the auction.


Thank you for letting us know we will go right and visit...


Angel Junior, Orion and Sammy said...

We had Meowm pull some money from her account and get it headed to her paypal account. As soon as it gets there she will make a donation! And we are purring up a storm for her!

The Lee County Clowder said...

Purrrrring for Annie. We hope we can make a more subtansial contrubution in a few days.

In the mean time, a place called Speaking for Spot has a long list of places where Annie and her beans might be able to get some help. The requirements are all over the place, but odds are Annie will fit at least a couple groups requirements.

Good luck.
