But still a fight, before her flight.
Luckily for us, and for this girl Preciousa – whom we have taken to calling Presh –
A most loving human stepped up, from New York, and asked that this kid become her kid.
As we are a bi-coastal rescue – this is -thankfully – a shining possibility.
How about that? In the course of one day, an abandoned, blind, dumped senior in Los Angeles, is being asked to continue her life –with more affection than ever – on the East Coast.
Naturally we are thrilled.
After we sprung her, we washed her…and then again,…and again, until the water stopped being black.
She loved the attention.
She is funny, and quite charming.
And does quite well without sight as her friend.
On her way to the vet she stopped by, and because she just was not clear on where she was – she wound up in a planter…but rather liked the feel of it.
Presh made her way to Montrose Animal Hospital, and was checked out, and shaved down.
Dr. Swope found a growth on her leg, and then another -and after a check- they appear to be cancerous.
Dr. Mitchell confirmed, and is certain that they should be removed stat.
We shudder to think of what would have happened had we not met.
Treated like a piece of inconvenient trash, is not something we would wish on anyone…not even the gross humans that traded her in for a puppy.
It is apparent that she was not given any vet care, any time recently. It appears that she was moved outside when her eyesight started failing. Ever the sweet lady, she is still diligent about using facilities outside, and craves nothing other than attention.
As in, if you stop rubbing her chest or petting her – She lift her paw to your hand, for you to continue.
Chest X-rays are clean and we are good to go.
Both The Doctors and The Scouts remain optimistic about Presh’s future. We need to treat this cancer aggressively by removing it right away.
Some of you have expressed interest in helping.
Being that she will be staying here in LA for surgery and recovery, and not just boarding a flight, we appreciate your offers, and will absolutely accept anything you might be able to contribute to Presh’s medical care.
That can be done here, through our donation button, or directly @ Montrose Hospital. 818-249-CARE (2273).
Thank you for uniting to give more love, and more light to this ‘disposed’ soul.
You do not have to see to know ‘light.’
Love and affection work their magic far past any visual…
Let’s get you home, kid.
