Help Trinity get back on her feet!
You know how some animals come into your life and they kind of become your soul mate? You connect to the point where you can even tell what the other is thinking? That is the relationship Trinity, and her owner, Liz H., have.
"Her name is Trinity because she is three different colors. She is my child, and we've grown an inseparable bond over twelve years," Liz says.
Liz tells Waggle Trinity was the one who knew they were supposed to be together.
"Trinity came into my life when I was living alone in college. An acquaintance I knew at work had a cat that had five kittens. She didn't know what to do and was ashamed to take them to a shelter. I offered to find them homes. Trinity chose me when she fell asleep on my neck at a month old," Liz adds.
Ever since Liz picked Trinity, she has shown her endless unconditional love. "Trinity has been my rock through anxiety attacks, panic attacks, depression, loss, emotional pain, and physical pain," Liz adds. "It's almost like our fur children just know when something is wrong, and they are there to heal us. Her purr is true healing power."
Now it's Liz's turn to save Trinity again. Her beautiful cat's paw has an open, swollen, and infected wound.
"It is possibly a tumor that is cancerous, or this is an autoimmune disorder," Liz says. "We have been treating it now for five months with antibiotics and steroids, and it continues to come back. Her vet at Animal Care East is trying so hard to find the issue."
Even more heartbreaking is that Trinty has been stuck wearing an e-collar for three months to prevent her from licking the area, and she's not doing well.
"She's not herself with it; it really adds to her depression. She has trouble eating and drinking. She doesn't play with her toys anymore and basically lays around the house now. That's not like her at all. She's usually very spunky and loves to play," Liz adds.
The vet tells Liz that her paw will continue to become infected until the surgery. During the operation, Trinity's toe will be biopsied.
"Scans have confirmed the infection has not reached the bone yet. If that happens, she may lose of foot or leg. To prevent the possible loss of limb, the surgery will need to take place as soon as possible," she says.
Liz is struggling to afford the medical help Trinity needs in these tough economic times and is begging for help. "My significant other and I are currently living on a one-person income due to him losing his job. This surgery was not expected."
Economic euthanasia of pets is on the rise nationally, especially in income-challenged and disadvantaged communities. Imagine if you could help these families access resources that might save their pets’ lives.
