Hello, kind humans. I have to share some sad news today. One of my favorite furiends on Facebook was Kiwi the Shelter Kitty. She often posted stories about special needs cats and asked people to help adopt them. As a diabetic cat, any feline that wanted to help special needs cats is fine by me. Kiwi the Shelter Kitty also came from the same place where my human started his love affair with cats. And she lived close to where I lived before my human moved to southern California. So I share a special kinship with my fellow feline Kiwi.
Kiwi’s humans clearly loved her, and she loved them. She referred to them as Sir Furreh Face and Lady Nom Nom. They are very kind humans, and they adopted a tripod cat Kiwi called Achilles the Hun. She called the human in the white coat who took care of her Mr. Grabby Hands. You had to love Kiwi’s spirit and heart.
She did so much to help her fellow felines, but unfortunately, nothing is forever. Kiwi was diagnosed with a granulomatous neoplasm enveloping her lung. Mr. Grabby Hands, as Kiwi referred to him, operated on her to try to remove it and give Kiwi a chance to continue to do her good work.
Unfortunately, it was not to be. Kiwi didn’t make it, and left this world on the operating table. Her spirit said that she knew “no greater joy den da gentle care, playful humor, and loyal companionship I shared with my beloved family. Dey risked everyting—der wealth, der credit, der dearest hopes—to bring me to da finest possible vet specialists.”
And now Kiwi’s humans, who are already heartbroken, need help. Kiwi’s medical bills were very high. The cost of the surgery, even though it was not successful, is around $9,000. My human tells me that Kiwi lived in a place with a very high cost of living, so to pay that on top of the bills for things humans need is a tremendous burden.
Kiwi has 7,300 fans. If ever fan donates just one dollar to help, that will help her humans get a long way to paying her bills. I know how generous Bagheera the Diabetic Cat’s Buddies are. There are 1,250 of you. If each of you donates just one dollar, that will get Kiwi’s humans very close to where they need to be.
These humans are suffering already, because they have lost their dear feline friend. Can you help so that they do not suffer too much financially?
It would make this diabetic cat very happy, and it would make Kiwi’s spirit happy.
