F4 tornado rips through Washington, IL....tearing through Mike and Sheba's apartment.  Mike was at work, but Miss Sheba was at home.  We had seen her a couple of times after the tornado while looking for animals, however, she wasn't ready to be caught yet.

Miss Sheba decides she's hungry enough to get into one of the humane traps we have set up at the apartment complex.  We took her to a vet in Washington, and she checked out perfectly with the exception of a little bit of frostbite on the tip of her ear.  We had a feeling this kitty was Sheba, and called Mike immediately to verify it was, in fact, the elusive SHEBA!  Tears were everywhere when he verified it was her!  JOY ALL OVER SOCIAL MEDIA!

January 27, 2014

Mike woke up to Miss Sheba having problems with her gait and noticed some unusual jerky movements when trying to walk.  He got her to the vet (for an already scheduled check up), but the symptoms progressively got worse throughout the day.  Mike (along with a couple of the crazy cat ladies) took Miss Sheba to an animal hospital to be further evaluated.  She bought herself a night at the vet's office to be closely watched for any change in the neurological symptoms.

We are raising this money to help cover the cost of the vet's bills.  Mike and Sheba have been through hell and back, and we can help minimize the stress of putting their lives back together with your donations!  

Thank you so much for any support!  And we will see you on Facebook with more "reunited" pics whenever those babies decide it's time to come home.

Due to the fact Sheba will be in the hospital a little longer than expected,  I have raised the goal amount....I will adjust it accordingly.  KEEP HEALING, MISS SHEBA!

Sheba is getting better and better by the day! But it's still a long road to recovery.   Her daddy says she's more stable today and is still eating well...even searching for the food herself instead of it being brought to her....jeep going Sheba!  Vet thinks she may be in hospital for a week or so....keep encouraging your friends and family to donate if they can! The smallest donations add up! GOD BLESS!

Mike just went to see Sheba.  He says she is doing a little better from this morning, and is continuing to eat. GREAT NEWS!  It's a little tough for Mike to see his baby like this, understandably, but he's staying strong for her, because she stayed strong for him for 10 weeks out in the elements.  Love this little family!

Miss Sheba is doing a little better today...they are giving more meds for possible meningitis...but she is cleaning herself,  eating,  and peeing which are all GREAT signs she's feeling ok! Hopefully on the upswing since she got antibiotics and steroids so quickly! Encourage your friends and family to give to this cause please. ...Mike is blown away by the support!
