The Story

***GOAL REACHED ~ Thank you SO MUCH for all of your support.***

Dear Supporters and Animal Lovers,

MUFFIN survived the surgery and the microchip is out!  We are so relieved!  It will be a little while before we know how much mobility he will have, but the neurosugeon is optimistic!!!!!  Thank you all for your support of this little wee boy. 

WE HAVE REACHED OUR GOAL
!!!!!  We have left the fund raiser open, since once it is closed, we will be unable to update all of Muffin's friends. NO NEED TO DONATE MORE!   We are overwhelmed by your generosity.   Because of you, Muffin will get the finest care with the best surgical team. Please keep Muffin in your thoughts and prayers that he survives the surgery, and lives a long, healthy kitty life.  THANK YOU from the bottom of every rescuer's heart.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 

MUFFIN is only about 5-6 weeks old and weighed only 1.1 when Loran went to rescue him last Thursday, October 16, 2014 From Downey She went to building 7 to have MUFFIN's microchip placed as required.  She then went back to wait for another cat that was being spayed.  She was there about an hour or less & during that time she noticed MUFFIN became lethargic and his head was, "dangling".  She thought it was odd since it happened right after the placement of the microchip, so she took him back to be seen by Dr. Jones.  Dr. Jones told her she thought the microchip was okay.  MUFFIN was given NutriCal and fluids.  Loran left & took him immediately to her who vet recommended if he still not seem right in the morning to bring him back and be seen by a neurologist.  MUFFIN was unable to move -- He was Paralyzed!!!!!
The paralysis continued through the night along with incontinence of bowel and bladder.  Loran took him back the next morning to be seen by a neurologist.
X-Rays were taken---MUFFIN HAD BEEN PARALYZED BECAUSE THE VET TECH PLACED THE MICROCHIP INTO HIS SPINAL CORD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
