Teioh

“We were at an end in being able to get care for my baby and then you came out of nowhere, giving us back our kitty’s life.  When they brought him to me after four days of being apart, he gingerly crawled up on my shoulder and tucked his head under my chin.  When he does that now at home, with his baby clothes on to protect his incision, and that silly cone around his neck, I still cry realizing how grateful I am to have all my family together as we weather all the changes in our lives. ”

We get to be there for her just the way we desperately wanted to. My husband is back to sitting on the couch so he doesn’t disturb Zoey who’s all curled up in his recliner. I’m back to having my lap completely covered and my face thoroughly “washed”. My sons are back to having 45 pounds of wagging flesh to romp with. Thanks to you our family is still whole.”

The best days are “super snuggle Saturdays” when I hold him against my chest while relaxing on the couch and we nap or watch TV.  Without Ellie’s Rainy Day Fund, Eddie’s quality of life would’ve been compromised and I might have had to face the isolation of my permanent disability without him.”

He means everything to us and we just want to tell you we’ll be forever grateful that you saved him from a life of immobility and pain.”
