Guero Needs Your Prayers Now and Help

Guero Needs Purrz and Prayerz - Guero started having problems again yesterday. Silvia had to take him back to the vet this morning to have a catheter so poor Guero could express his bladder.


Right now Silvia is thankful that she got Guero to the vet in time...


Cost of Vet Visit: $225.00.  Because check came in from working at HR, Silvia paid half of bill and a longtime friend and his Mom helped pay the rest. 

Right now, that means unless Silvia gets enough housecleaning done this week, there may not be enough money for rent this coming Tuesday. 

Silvia picked up Guero about 11am CST. She just texted at 2:38pm "Guero in pain, but drowsy from anesthesia. I got bill there showing all procedures. Bladder was full. I hope he doesn’t need to go again or will have to go to ER. Guero had shots and catheter procedure..." Not winning the Pee Wars today. Texted just now. "Guero hasn’t gone yet. Vet said if no progress by tomorrow nite - will have to take him to Vet Emergency Hospital for catheter flush only. Mucus in his urethra." 

I only have so much money in my credit card funds to cover an ER visit... just not there. Please pray and share...


Please keep Guero in your prayers. And share on social media. We need funds by tomorrow.

If anyone could help with an auction, I have several items to start with.
Will keep you updated.  –Katie.
 
Purrz, Katie Kat.

Guero had to go back to the vets Christmas Eve to have his bladder expressed, no charge though! He is doing very well the past few days, thanks to all the purrz and prayers! The weather here in Wichita started turning bad yesterday with rainy cold, then sleet. Freezing today and supposed to snow later on.

Purrz from Silvia and her Fur Babies
++++++++++++++++=========+++++++++++++

Benjamin Lil Bear Here... helping mom type by occupying her arms... I really loves napping in Mom's arms while she at the 'pooter... 

We wanted to tells you about a funding going on that am furry impawtant and will save every cat on Death Row in NYC's highest kill shelter tomorrow on Chrissymouse Eve!

The Mom sent all her Christmas Money to save the babies... 

Even if you don't has much, fur every dollar you can donate - 3 more dollars will match yours!  Can you send a little something to save a life tomorrow - the bestest Christmas purrsent ever?


- Purrz from Katie Kat the Mom,
Benjamin Lil Bear and all the saved Katie Katz...

===================================

"Hudson Valley Animal Rescue (a 501c3 non-for-profit organization located in Poughkeepsie NY.) is very active in the rescue community. We have saved over 600 animals from just one "kill shelter" in NYC this year. We also take in animals from shelters in the South and from the public as well. Every holiday season on Christmas Eve it has been a tradition for us to rescue all of the cats on the "Death Row" list from the high kill shelter in New York City. 

This year an incredibly generous donor is offering to match any donation we receive up to $5,000. On top of that the company she works for is willing to match up to $5,000 as well! This means that for every $1 you donate- HVARS will receive $3! With your help this holiday season we have a chance raise up to $15,000 to help save the “Christmas Eve” cats and many others.

Please consider giving up just one cup of coffee or tea and use that couple of dollars to make a small donation. Those dollars wont make much difference sitting in your wallet but they could mean the difference between live and death for a needy animal if you send them to HVARS. Every little bit counts. 

We are so grateful to have been given this opportunity. All of the money that you donate will go straight to vetting, feeding and general care of the cats/dogs that are still waiting to find homes. As well as the renovation of our new facility so that we have the ability to rescue even more animals in the future!"

Please share with everyone you know in hopes that we can reach our goal! 
Thank you, we love you all!

URGENT UPDATE Need Power of the Paw

**UPDATE** got back from the vet - (forgot to mention earlier that Guero had thrown up this morning as well as howling in pain...) 

Vet found no blockage in his urethra! Thank Goodness! He was able to express all of Guero's urine. He gave Guero a cortisone shot - $35.00 - no office fee. Found out that Guero saw the vet assistant yesterday and received a duo shot of Convenia (antibiotic) and dextromethorphan (cough med for humans). Apparently Dextro can be used to suppress more than coughs, but is short acting and did not help the swelling.

Last month, Guero was given a Convenia shot and Depo for his UTI. Basically what has happened: As soon as Convenia was out of his system, infection came back.  If the UTI comes back again in 12 days, vet will give him a different antibiotic. 

Praying that this UTI can get vanquished and Guero won't need an operation to open his urethra.

Purrz
Katie Kat
and Silvia, Guero's Mom.
If you have Facebook, you can
let Silvia know you are praying -

 =========================================================

   


First of all thanks so much for all your support of Silvia and her kitty kids...

We have enough funds to pay rent today, plus 25.00 over.

Yet now we need the power of the paw for Guero.



Silvia Espinosa's cat Guero got sick again with bladder/ urinary tract infection over the weekend. She took him to the vet yesterday with a friend - vet gave him a shot of depo and antibiotic . He felt better until last night and started getting worse. 

She texted me early this am.  All the other cats are upset with him and he is trying to pee everywhere.  Will be going to vet in about an hour... Please pray. I have some credit to pay the bill..(I only have 160.00 in credit... I pray the bill will be less than that.) until funds come in from You Caring.  Please, please pray for Guero. 

Thanks so much.... will update later today. 
(don't have a smart phone - will update when back at pc)

Mancat Monday Oreo and The Menorah

Hiya Furry Friends,  

Oreo here.
The mom found our Menorah and lit candles last night the eighth night of Hanukkah (2nd of Tevet, 5776).  I had to investigate of course (I'm privileged you see) - hey Mom that's too warm!  Time to get down afore dem candles singe my whiskers!

Here is another version in blue hue.... 



the original is at http://yourshot.nationalgeographic.com/photos/7391894/

2015 Hanukkah began Kislev 25, 5776








Our Menorah was made to look like the one in front of the Knesset in Israel

The Knesset Menorah is at the edge of the Rose Garden across from the Knesset building, a work of the Jewish English artist of German origin Benno Elkan (1877 – 1960). The sculpture is 4.30 meters high, 3.5 meters wide, and weighs 4 tons. 

The main theme of the work depicts the spiritual struggles of the Jewish people and it is engraved with the passage “Not by strength and not by power, but by my Spirit, says the Lord who rules over all” (Zechariah 4, 6).  

The Menorah includes engravings of biblical figures and events from the tradition and history of the Jewish people. The engravings on the six side branches of the Menorah portray the fate of the Israeli people since exiled from our land and engravings on the center branch portray history since the beginning of the return to the land and until the re-establishment of the State of Israel. 

Chag Sameach! Happy Holidays
L'Shana Haba a b'Yerushalayim!
Next Year in Jerusalem!

Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem. May they prosper who love you.
-Psalm 122:6, KJV 



Update on Silvia. Still need a hundred dollars by tomorrow.  Silvia said she has until 9am Wednesday to have money.  She hasn't been able to get going with training due to some hold up on her user ID.  She went to the office this morning and seems like part of the problem has been that her tablet is blocking due to security settings! Although she "passed" tests she has taken so far, this office of HR wants top testers. The manager was very encouraging however and said to just concentrate on training and don't do any more tests until the end of December.



She still has the opportunity to clean this new home to get it ready.  I hope she can still work on 
that home too. 

Please help us make tomorrow's rent.  She has a friend that lets her borrow his car - he might be able to pay rent for next week, but not tomorrow.

Sending out eCards furrry soon to all who have helped Katiez Katz this year and especially to those who have helped Silvia.  /  Thank you so much!

Today, sending out some Snail Mail cards to donators this year with one of a kind small paintings of my wide eyed lion... look like this one but in color - all signed and labeled 1 of 1.  Only found so many addresses though.  If I don't have your address - will ask for it in the eCard email.


More info in an email to all of your who have been helping with funds for Katiez Katz... Purrz and Prayers,

Katie Kat, Oreo @ Katiez Katz.

Caturday Hanukkah and Christmas Art

Hiy Everyone, Oreo here. I let Mom borrow my photo to makes some art.  

Our Caturday Art today am our
Hannukah and Chrissymouse cards!  Mom couldn't decide which one, so here they are... You kin copy and paste them to your blogs.  Mom made one with Laura Belle who gotted adopted last year at Christmas too.




On this 7th day of Hanukkahs, 
Weze gonna share the Mom's Favorite song sung by her favorite artist... Marty Goetz who came to town earlier this year to remember the passing of a wonderful woman named Annette Hedke who died in an accident on Mom's birthday.




MA'OZ TZUR 
MAOZ TZUR YESHU'ATI 
Ma'oz tzur yeshu'ati,
Lecha na'eh leshabe-ach.

Tikon beit tefilati
Vesham todah nezabe-ach.

Le'eit tachin matbe-ach,
Mitzar ham'nabe-ach

Az egmor beshir mizmor
Chanukat hamizbe-ach

(repeat last two lines)





THE ROCK OF AGES 
THE ROCK OF AGES IS MY SALVATION 
Rock of Ages, let our song
Praise thy saving power.

You amidst the raging foes
Were our sheltering tower.

Furious, they assailed us,
But your armour veiled us.

And thy word broke their sword
When our own strength failed us.

(repeat last two lines)
Purrz of Meowry Hannukah and Christmas full of joys and miracles...
- Oreo Robin William.

Now fur a update on Silvia and the kitties from Mom
All the cats are doing well, yet Silvia needs our purrz for the training at HR Block. She applied for customer service rep versus tax preparer job because been too long since she took tax prep classes. 

The CSR positions are full, yet a position might open up and she is on the waiting list. 

In the mean time, she has done some tests for the Tax Prep job from the library computer and then from HR office, but her scores were low. She is waiting for her log in ID and will come over to borrow my computer when she gets it. She was given temporary one, but it's not working.  I'm hoping she can come over this weekend and I can help her study, but she may have to go to the office and sign in from there.  She may not make the cut for the Tax Prep job.  I am praying that  a position opens up in the customer service and that the training is easier to pass.

However, the job to clean the brand new home is ready... She can start cleaning the basement.  I'm finding out when she may do that work.  Best part of the house cleaning job is they will pay her sooner than HR Block.

Thank you to all the kind souls helping Silvia make it this Hannukkah and Christmas!

She still needs 100.00 by Tuesday for next weeks rent....  Please keep Silvia and her kitties in your purrz for work.
