Reef, the Florida cat, is one of the many pets who is negatively affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Because of the pandemic, both of her parents have been laid off of work. So, when this one-eyed, big-hearted, rescue cat started showing some serious mobility concerns, her parents didn’t know how to afford a veterinary check-up. 

Reef had a rough start to her life and when she ended up in the shelter, she had already lost an eye. She was in bad shape when she met her forever-parents. She immediately bonded with her new mom and their family has been treating her like a queen ever since. These are responsible pet owners who have donated toward other sick pets in the past, and now they are in trouble.

Reef immediately needed diagnostic testing and pain medication. We knew that you would want her to get that help, so we quickly funded that and found out the same day that Reef actually had an old injury that didn’t heal properly from before her adoption. Now she is on a pain management plan and taking joint supplements. Depending on how she responds, further treatment may be needed. 

Reef’s situation is one where a few hundred dollars can make a huge difference in a pet’s life. She is just one example of how the Covid-19 pandemic is affecting people and their companion animals across the USA.  

Please make a donation toward this life-changing treatment. You may be the only one who can.  

If you can’t afford a donation, please send positive thoughts to Reef’s parents and share this story.
