US Fund, 2012

I adopted him when he was 8 weeks old.  I saw an ad in the paper for a free Manx kitten and although it was old, I called anyway.  They still had him so I drove about an hour and adopted him –they had told me he was a girl NOT!!!  After he was home for about 2 weeks my orange Tabby Manx-- Fat Cat got out  and someone had hit her right in front of my house I sure do miss her.  Nibbert had been sneezing for a day maybe three, so I took him to the vet they wanted to do some tests on him.  He was diagnosed with FIV.  The vet told me I ought to put him to sleep.   I left that clinic and never went back.  I went back to my old vet, whom I should have gone to in the first place.  Dr  Pearson at Micanopy Animal Hospital is the one who did the surgery today, she was great.  That was 3 & 1/2 years ago. I wouldn't part with him for anything in the world.



Surgery today!  YAY!  Nibbert is doing great...  he had 7 teeth pulled - a lot less than anticipated so less bill, less pain.  After he is healed he should be able to eat just like before.   He will be on the interferon & mouth rinse  for the rest of his life. The clavamox & pain  medicine for a little while longer but all in all not as bad as expected.  None of this would be possible if it wasn’t for Brown Dog Foundation.  I want to thank you for everything from the bottom of my heart... now my baby will be pain free and have a much better chance to live longer!!
