To most, people a tiny black kitty means nothing… he is nothing, matters nothing.
Our clinic called me this morning with an emergency. A couple of tourist have found this little kitty desperately trying to catch some air, unable to breath. They took him to the hospital inmediately, but not to heal him or save his life, no… they wanted to have him euthanised.
I asked my vet to put those people on the phone, and they repeated the same thing. They didn´t know why he was struggling to breathe so the best thing for him is to be euthanised. The vet told them he needed to take an X-ray but they refused. They were on holiday and they didn´t want to get involved in the expense of rescuing a kitty while on holiday! The kitty is suffering and he has no family so he will be happier if they kill him. Death is the best option for him, they said.
I couldn´t believe how cold blooded, and determined those people were, so I left everything and rushed to the clinic, where I met this beautiful little Kitty, gasping for air. I called him Little Henry.
I introduced myself and they told me they were the people responsible for Henry. I clenched my teeth, thanked them for their kindness and told them from that moment on I would like to take over, save his life and take care of his expenses and rehoming.
They sounded relieved and left… I´ll never know if relieved of not having to kill him, or relieved of not having to pay the bill.
This is Little Henry right now… His lungs are full of fluid. He has pneumonia. This is an unedited video. It´s the raw suffering of a dying kitty. A death that can be avoided.
We can do this… I know we can… Help us save Little Henry. Please Donate towards Henry´s treatment… Help us save his life.
P.S. After he is fully recovered Little Henry is going to need an extraordinary family that loves him forever. Please write to me on firstname.lastname@example.org if you are that family.
