A special cat is home for Christmas

Christmas cat

Tucker is a feisty gray and white cat who found his forever home with Lindsey four years ago. They are best friends and more – Lindsey has been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, and this is how she describes Tucker:

“He is the sweetest cat, he loves me so much and sleeps right beside me on my pillow every night. He always greets me at the door when I get home and is always so happy to see me. He’s like my sidekick – when I’m not feeling well he knows and comes and sleeps right on my belly. It’s nice to have the company because lying in bed all day can be super boring especially if I can’t read or watch TV, which happens sometimes when I get optic neuritis and my vision becomes blurry. He’s also really funny and I think laughter is good medicine!”

Tucker 1 When Tucker began vomiting, Lindsey was desperate. Because of her MS, she can only work part-time and that leaves her with little money left at the end of the month. She rushed Tucker to the vet, but she only had enough money to pay for the diagnosis – a severe intestinal blockage. It looked like Tucker had eaten the cuff of a sweater and it was now lodged in his intestine. That was when someone recommended she call VHS.

Our McVitie Fund is always stretched to the limit, but we knew we had to help Tucker.  The surgery took place that night and the first few days were rough, but Tucker finally began to get better and, thankfully, he pulled through. Lindsey now makes sure that Tucker has lots of safe toys to keep him busy and she keeps her sweaters under lock and key!

Tucker 2While we’re sure Tucker appreciated the help he received during his stay at the vet’s, he’s looking forward to enjoying a safe and peaceful Christmas at home!
