Pls. meet Mikki! One of our avid animal advocates saw Mikki's sad picture on Craigs List and read her very somber and touching story. Mikki is an 8 year old Chi who's guardian passed away and her daughter had Mikki and did not want her, so she posted her on Craig's List (and we all know the perils of Craig's List)  to rehome.  Our animal advocate was extremely scared and very sad for Mikki and wanted to get her down from this treacherous posting.  She called and went to pick her up.  We don't know what kind of life Mikki had in her past but when she was picked up, she was extremely angry and a real biter, very few teeth left but that didn't stop her from biting. She bit a great deal and Chastity had to use a towel wrapped around her arm and hands in order to handle her.  Maybe she didn't have such a great life afterall (?)

Between the kindness and caring of our advocate and her other Chi, they were able to calm down the fear that this tiny one had internally with cuddling, friendship and love.  Chastity and her other sweet chi (who thinks she's Mikki's grandmother) have given Mikki a new lease on life.

Unfortunately, Mikki did come with a umbilical hernia and needs immediate surgery that is scheduled for Feb. 19th.  The vet who will be performed this surgery is Triangel Vet Clinic, 1312 Pinckney St., Union, SC  Phone 864-427-3177 - in lieu of donations, you may call the vet and put your donation on acct.  Pls. let them know it is for Mikki's hernia surgery.   Phone 864-427-3177

Here are some facts about hernias and how they can effect the animals - even causing death in some cases.

A hernia happens when an area of your muscle wall, membrane, or tissue that holds your internal organs in place becomes weakened or develops an opening. Once the weakened area or hole becomes large enough, a part of the internal organ starts poking out of its protective area. Thus, a hernia is analogous to a bag with a small hole that allows whatever you're holding, such as food or a can, to come out. Since a hernia can happen for different reasons, it's important to know how to check for a hernia to prevent further complications.  As you can see, Mikki's hernia is umbilical and is quite large and needs to be tended to now due to her age and health.

Mikki and Chastity thank each and every one who helps them with the cost of this surgery. They give you all of God's blessings - for you are very special for helping them. They truly appreciate every penny given toward this lucky Craig's List tiny one. Because always remember that every dollar, connected to another dollar - creates dollar(s). And all dollars help.
