Orion – RIP Sweet Boy – Found in a Field Unable to Move

1/9/19 – RIP Sweet Orion – The rescue community came alive when it was reported that this poor cat was laying out in the harsh weather of yesterday, seemingly unable to move. Our good friend, Shelley Emerson, contacted me and I approved for Orion to be taken to one of our favorite veterinarians, Dr. Zalac. Shelley made it to the office before closing and Orion was found to be nearly paralyzed in all four legs. X-Rays were done — all negative of breaks; basic blood work was done — all negative of any obvious issues. Dr. Z put Orion on general antibiotics and planned to test for toxoplasmosis in the morning. Just a little while ago, Dr. Z called me to say that Orion passed away during the night. The staff did everything to make her comfortable and warm. We are beyond thankful to our many vets who work with us and most importantly, people like Shelley who drove all of the way from the far east side of Macomb County to Fenton to Lake Orion. May God Bless her and all of the caring rescuers in our community. We can only be comforted by the fact that Orion did not die alone in that field. ~ diana
