5/18/22 – Although I rarely have the opportunity to meet the many fur orphans we help, it still is so very hard when we can’t give everyone a second chance at life. This is Ziggy. We were contacted about Ziggy this past March. He had an abscess from being bitten and needed medical help. At that time we took care of everything Ziggy needed and he was doing good. Then last week, he became very lethargic, wasn’t eating, he kept licking his front legs, and was very disheveled — he wouldn’t leave the basement. We were able to get him in quickly at one of our new vet partners, APaws Veterinary Hospital. Blood work was performed and poor Ziggy was found to be positive for FIV and FelV (feline leukemia). His rescuer and the doctor decided it was best to let Ziggy peacefully cross the Rainbow Bridge. He crossed with his rescuer holding his paw. This is Ziggy in March and then last week. May he now be playing with all who had gone before him. RIP Sweet Boy. – diana.
