Marmalade is a calico kitty, not a day over 2 years old, according to the vet.  She was brought to me yesterday by owners who could no longer keep their cats - they had rehomed 2 of them, but no one wanted a pregnant cat.  She birthed a kitten over the weekend, but it died within 12 hours.  The previous owners said they thought she had labored for 12 hours or so.

When I received her yesterday, I took her straight to the vet, where an x-ray showed a deceased, calcified kitten high in her womb, and severely impacted intestines and bowel.  She had to stay at the vet last night for a surgery first thing this morning to spay her and help with the intestinal problem, as infection was beginning to set in yesterday afternoon.

She will be coming home to my house this afternoon, after a successful surgery this morning, but she will be coming home on antibiotics and flea medication (they found evidence of fleas in surgery).

I am happy to help this kitty out and give her another chance at life, but so far, the vet bills have gone just over $300 - money I hadn't really been expecting to have to spend on a rescued cat.

Pytel Veterinary Clinic in Goodrich has been great - they saw her at the rescue rate yesterday, considering the manner in which I came to own Marmalade.  That being said, if you can help at all, I would appreciate it immensely.

Let's give Marmalade a chance at a healthy, long life!
