Indi has 3 very loved pets, all kindly rescued. Indi needs to live week to week due her circumstances, but she realises how important her adoring animals are to her families health and well being. Being in necessitous circumstances means that Indi would do what ever she could to care for her pets, just as she would for the other members of her family. ‘Wallen’ was adopted from the RSPCA along with his best friend ‘Tilly’ because Indi couldn’t bear to separate the pair.

The two cats changed the family Dynamics for the better as soon as they moved into Indi’s house. Indi and her kids have had a tough background and they have found it hard to trust or rely on humans in the past. Being a house filled with pets has meant that this beautiful family is complete and can feel love, safety and comfort.

Indi noticed that ‘Wallen’ was acting very out of character and seemed to be suffering pain. After doing some research Indi’s son suggested that it could be a urinary tract infection and it will kill a cat if not treated. Indi was able to get ‘Wallen’ to the vet at Narre Warren Veterinary clinic where doctor Jon was there to help. Indi is on Jobseeker thanks to COVID-19, and she knew that the costs to save her cat would be beyond what she could afford. After doing some research Indi came across PMC and applied for help.

“I will be working for a future arrangement to help people who adopt pets, people who adopt pets are kind and often not rich, because they always give. It’s wonderful to have something like your organisation (PMC) To seek support in difficult times and I am willing to support and promote.” Said Indi

Dr. Jon and his team treated ‘Wallen’ for three days and gave him what he needed to recover from the infection in the bladder and kidneys. Thankfully ‘Wallen’ has made it back home where he belongs and will soon take up his spot in bed with his compassionate mum.

Gimpy is a 6-month old kitten from near Warnambool. His owner Katie a single mum of two doing it tough, noticed that his leg had lost it’s blood supply because the cats mum hadn’t removed the umbilical cord properly from the baby cat. It was around 12 hours later before anyone realised what had happened, by that stage the damage had been done. Without being able to afford to have her cat looked by a vet due to being out of work and unable to receive Centrelink payments, Katie was at a loss.

After trying her best to have the leg cared for it eventually came to the point where it would need to be taken off or the cat would soon need to be euthanized.

“Gimpy is a beautiful little boy, who follows me around the house and my kids tells me if I leave the house he meows at the window for me. There is no way we could have afforded to get Gimpy the help needed if it wasn’t for Pet Medical Crisis’s help, we are forever grateful.” Katie told team PMC so relieved after the surgery.

After getting PMC involved to manage the case, and thanks to the great work from the Lava st Vet Clinic Warrnambool, ‘Gimpy’ was finally able to have the threatening leg removed properly. ‘Gimpy’ survived the operation very well and is now is safe and sound back with the loving family, no doubt feeling much better having the painful leg taken. Thanks to the Lava st Veterinary crew for the work done and help given.

Rebecca had to stop working due to her Grand-fathers illness. Being on a part time carer’s pension has meant that money has been extremely tight for Rebecca. When Rebecca’s 7-year old best friend, ‘Kat’, a cat, got awfully ill with a blocked bladder it looked very grim.

After Rebecca noticed that ‘Kat’ was urinating blood she knew a vet was required and off to the Ballarat Veterinarian Clinic they went. Discovering the bladder needed to be taken care of urgently and having no means to afford the procedure Rebecca got in touch with us at team PMC to ask for help.

“I have had this wonderful cat for 7-years, I have lived alone for a long time and he has been a best friend to me. It saddens me that I can’t pay to help him with this bladder problem.” Rebecca said.‘Kat’ had his bladder drained via needle to stabilise him, then a GA to fix the blockage. ‘Kat’ was hospitalised for a few nights as he recovered with the great staff at Ballarat Veterinarian Clinic.

Now safe and sound back at home ‘Kat’ is recovered and doing very well. Thanks to all involved and we wish Rebecca many more years of happiness with her black cat-‘Kat’!
