The Story

If you are connected to us on Facebook, you are probably aware of Harrison.  This gentle giant came to us from Chicago Animal Care & Control during the early winter of 2014 during one of of those "polar vortex", sub-zero weather patterns.  Harrison suffered significant frostbite on his ears and paw pads and had to have quite a bit of his ear tissue removed, giving him his characteristic look. While he recovered fairly quickly from the physical trauma, it took him almost a year before he was able to overcome some of the emotional damage that had been done and begin to trust us.  This trust, and the love that accompanies it, has been hard won and is much appreciated by us, his human family.  


In late April 2017, Harrison began acting very odd and became increasingly vocal over a 12 hour period.  We realized that something was very wrong with him and made a quick call to the emergency vet to see if we could get him in.  A quick examination showed that Harrison had a complete blockage of his ureter and his bladder was swelling quickly.  Meds, fluids, IV's, catheters, and a couple nights at the kitty hospital have all  been instrumental in his recovery. The vet thanked us for catching it quickly and bringing him in as waiting until the morning would have likely caused permanent kidney damage and it is quite possible that he might not have made it through the night.  While he is improving, he is far from out of the woods.  He is on a specialized diet and will need monitoring for similar issues in the future.

We are endlessly thankful for the care and time that the vets have given us but that care has come with a price as well.  We are asking for your help as we create a fund to cover the current and ongoing care that Harrison will need.  He has had many challenges in his life and we are dedicated to providing him with the greatest life that we can as he ages.  There are multiple ways that you can help us with this fund.  Deidre and I are both contributing 100% of the proceeds from the services that we offer on our websites.  If you are interested in tarot, angel card, animal communication, or akashic records readings, please visit the sites below to explore the services that we offer.  You can also donate at whatever level you feel comfortable with through this campaign.  All donations are greatly appreciated and will be used for Harrison's care.

Harrison is off to his (hopefully) last follow up visit with Dr. McCarthy today.  He's been eating better, but still a bit lethargic and not quite himself yet.  Thank you SO very much to all who have been keeping him in your thoughts and prayers.  Your good vibes and your donations are much, much appreciated!

Harrison had a follow up visit with the vet today.  His urinary tract is healing, but he hasn't been eating much.  He got some fluids and a prescription for an appetite stimulant.  Thanks for the continued good thoughts all!
