I really need help with this.
This is Riri. She is my baby girl of 4 years. She is a mainecoon ragdoll mix breed. I've had her ever since she was a small kitten of 4 months. She's always been here for me through thick and thin no matter what. She's always been with me and I love her so much.
One month ago, while at home, I noticed she had difficulty walking everytime she went for food or approached me and was vomiting more often than usual. I thought this was just a single instance but the symptoms persisted as the days went. This also happened incredibly suddenly so I became worried.
I decided to take my little girl to the vet to have her checked as I knew something was definitely wrong. I really was hoping it was nothing bad. The vet put her through an xray and some blood tests to check up on her. Turns out they did this because they suspected her of having heartworms. I was really hoping that that was not the case but in the end, it turned out that she had 3 worms in her.
The vet informed me that she was definitely going to require some nursing care and drugs and antibiotics to help assist with any respiratory problems she might have which could cost from approximately $500 to $700. Every now and then, I would have to get her an xray as well to check on her current condition as heartworms can be be gotten rid of naturally or they can be surgically removed. As of now, my baby girl is hospitalised under the vet's care and supervision.
With the recent COVID situation, I have lost my job so I am not able to fund her current and future medical bills from all the treatment required that is why I am here today asking for urgent assistance.
Riri means so much to me. I do not like seeing her struggle like this. She's been with me through so much. Helped me through everything whether I was depressed or angry at anything. When I lost my job, she was my saving grace. I don't want to need to leave her in the dark like this. I don't want to lose her. She means everything to me. I love my baby girl. I want to give her what she deserves and more.
I would be so incredibly grateful to whoever helps me. Helps her through this. I would appreciate any amount donated as long as it's a step in seeing her bright and cheerful again. I would be forever thankful to whoever helps us out in this situation. She's everything to me. She's all I have. I don't want to lose her.
