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
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.
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.
