Sunday night, Dulie’s foster noticed the sweet cat was having trouble breathing. She was rushed to the emergency vet, where it was found Dulie was having an asthma attack and one of her lungs had collapsed. Since then, she’s been at the emergency vet receiving oxygen. We’re hoping after several days she can go off oxygen, only requiring an inhaler as needed, but if not, we may need to do a tissue sampling.
The estimate is $3,000- $5,000 for Dulie’s treatment and emergency stay, and it could be more if additional care is required. Any money raised in excess of her needs will go toward helping other cats and kittens in Nashville Cat Rescue's care.
While we hate to ask for help during this difficult time in Middle Tennessee, emergencies have no respect for circumstances. But if 200 people donate $20, we’ll be well on our way to covering this deserving cat’s treatment. Thank you, as always, for your support!
