This is Rue, a two-year-old domestic shorthair cat.
Rue's mom was wanting a companion to spend her days with, so she adopted Rue. Rue and his mom were having a wonderful time together, until Rue became very sick.
Rue was taken to the vet as soon as she could get him there, and Rue's mom let the vet know one of Rue's favorite snacks is almonds. That's when she learned that almonds can be toxic to cats when consuming large amounts, and will cause stomach issues, and can even cause pancreatitis. You can read more about almonds and other items that can cause some issues for your dogs at the ASPCA page, Internet Myths and Rumors: Pet Toxin Edition.
Rue’s mom lives off of her disability funds. She knew that Rue needed to be seen by a doctor, but did not have any emergency veterinary care funds saved, so she applied to Fur Kids Foundation for help.
Along with blood work, Rue received fluides, medication, and anti-nausea injections to help him feel better. His mom now knows to only feed Rue kitty appropriate snacks, such as some of these listed on Chewy, 15 Human Foods That Are Safe for Cats.
