Thank you so much to everyone who braved the cold and donated food to Gypsy last Saturday at the Farmer's Market. We received 110 cans of cat food and 14 lbs of dry food for her. We also took in several donations this week and at last count, we have over 160 cans! I think we'll be well over 200 cans of donated food by the end of the week! Thank you everyone! It's not too late to donate food, we'll always accept food/supply donations.
Here's the most recent pictures of our poor girl -
Gypsy is being very well cared for by one of our foster parents and is getting healthier everyday. She went to the vet yesterday and just weighs over 5 lbs (and this is after a week of 3 cans of cat food a day). The vet estimated her age at closer to 8 years and not the 1-2 years we originally thought. The head wound was not an infected bite wound, but rather a tumor, which was also removed yesterday (click on photo to see stitches). The vet doesn't think it's cancerous, but it has been sent to the lab for testing just to be on the safe side.
While she looks in pretty rough shape, her blood work was good she shouldn't have any long-term damage or illness and should make a full recovery.
Rest, food and lots of love should make her whole again and we are expecting her to have a wonderful, long life ahead of her.
