|Bela in his cat tree|
This weekend, Bela was just acting a bit off. We weren't sure what was going on other than he seemed to have more nose & eye mucus than usual and he was lethargic. He wasn't climbing to the top of his cat tree, and we kept finding him in weird nooks in the house (including the dryer...not one of his usual hidey-holes). Last night we agreed to call the vet and get him looked at today. My partner agreed to take him in so I could go to work (I've missed enough work because of my spine as of late, so I really can't afford it with impending surgery).

All I ask is that you keep him in your thoughts, prayers, or however you keep vigil for beloved things in your life. If financial contribution is an option, I will not turn anything down as this is all happening just days after I found out that I have to have spinal fusion surgery. I'm going to put referral links at the bottom of this post to help fund this....so if you have online holiday shopping, please consider clicking through the links so I can afford his care. If financial contributions aren't possible, but still want to help, check the "about me" page for different rewards programs...InboxDollars gives a referral credit just for signing up (and it's a cash credit), and Swagbucks is how I've been getting a cat pheromone diffuser through Amazon. If anyone knows any other fundraising options, let me know.
Happy healing thoughts of r'fuah shlemah for my little guy are also helpful. He's been my little emotional support cat through all of my spine-related travails, from cuddling up by the the fracture in bed to laying on my hip snuggling with me through pain spikes. I can't imagine life without him.
