Abigail, a senior saved
Abigail, a 12-year-old American Curl cat, was found abandoned near a San Jose, CA expressway.  This senior kitty needed rescue, but how do we get her from San Jose to NYC?  With a lot of help from compassionate people. 
 Obviously once someone’s pet, Abigail was lonely, confused, frightened, and sick.  With the San Jose Animal Shelter assisting with preparations on the west coast, we made arrangements to have Abigail transported to us via “kitty-class” on-board an airline -- thanks to a wonderful lady we cannot thank enough -- who flew cross-country and back to pick Abigail up!  She was Abigail’s ‘Karmic-Angel.’

Abigail, Coast-to-Coast Curl
When Abigail arrived in NYC, she was extremely thin, suffering from an, as yet, unknown medical issue, but she was finally here!  She was fully vetted the next day and blood work confirmed several  issues.  But the most immediate crisis is her unresolved digestive issues; Abigail’s body is unable to absorb any food or nutrients, which could put her life in danger.  We are not sure at this point if it is IBD or something more serious.  We have her on a prescription diet, medication, and she is currently back in the vet’s office under their supervised care to try to get her system under control.  The vet bills are mounting; tests required are very expensive, and we need your help once again to make sure we can do all that is possible to bring Abigail back to health and provide for her lifelong care.

A kitty with lots of love to give and a will to live

Abigail hasn’t completely lost that feeling of abandonment, and it breaks our hearts to see her like this.  But we also see an Abigail who loves generously, likes to be around people, and has the will to live.  Together, with your help, we can make sure that Abigail knows the safety and security of a home once again – along with a long life and all the love – and TTouch --  we can give her. 

Once it is determined that she is healthy and able, we’ll see if the right forever home is out there for her; but, if that doesn’t work out, not to worry! She has a home for life within Tavi & Friends' Foster Sanctuary program.


Abigail is one of our cats who is helped by MUFFIN's FUND, which provides emergency funds to help senior and special animals we rescue.  We desperately need your support for donations to this Fund in order to help more animals like Abigail. Please consider a monthly donation of $20 or more, or a one-time donation in any amount.
