Kermit, who has a feeding tube, is back home, and we're glad his new heating pad is keeping him warm while he continues on the road to recovery!
When a pet is sick, it can be so stressful for the pet and their person, especially when they can't afford the diagnostics to figure out what's wrong.
That's precisely what happened for Kermit the Cat and his mom. Kermit couldn't poop, and Phinney's helped pay the initial vet bill to avert the crisis and find the cause of the problem.
The poor little guy, who is only 4 years old, was in rough shape. The vet suspected an upper respiratory infection may be the culprit and stated Kermit's condition may have been aggravated by a severe case of pancreatitis.
The good news is he's back home and stable for now, with a feeding tube to give him the nutrients he needs to recover.
To date, the generous support of concerned donors has meant Phinney's was able to cover $3,000 of the vet costs for Kermit. But Kermit will continue to need our help.
Would you consider making a donation today? It's tax deductible! Kermit's mom, who even started her own GoFundMe page and has raised over $300 to help Kermit, would be so appreciative. And we would be, too!
Any issue with his feeding tube could mean a bill of around $1,000 or more, and he will need more treatment, so whatever you can give will make a difference for the better for Kermit.
Fingers crossed and thank you!
