Grayson, our family cat, is very ill in a vet hospital and we need help to take care of him.

One day, a little bundle of gray, walked out of our woods and followed her daddy, Joel, as he cut the grass. We fed him from the garage for about a week. We thought he was someone else's cat because he was beautiful. After asking door by door all of our neighbors, we could not find grayson's home so we took him in. We took him to the vet and he as blessed our home.

He is very sick... and we need help to pay the vet bills. While I understand so many people are hurting financially, and therefore will not be able to give, I know that some people have extra funds and they love animals. If you are prompted to give we would greatly appreciate any donation, to help with Grayson's vet bills.

We have paid initially $800 to vet visits over 3 days at Banfield Hosptial at PetSmart. They told us we needed an ultrasound. Grayson is in the hospital at BluePearl in on Mallory Lane. After many test, the veterinarian called to say he needs a heart ultrasound for a growing murmur, removal of fluid specimen around his lungs to test and a liver biopsy. This bill is already $1600 and we haven't even started any treatment.

To our surprise Grayson acts more like a dog then a cat. My 14 year old daughter says, "He is a cat that thinks he is a dog!" Grayson loves water... he runs whenever a faucet is turned on and tries to play. He drinks from the faucet and sleeps in the sink. He plays fetch, and he learned a few pet tricks.

Grayson kept growing and growing. Our little bundle of gray ended up to be a 10 lbs big ball of adventure and amusement. He always want to sneak outside, so we have to be careful any time we open the door (he is an indoor cat). When we tried to walk him outside on a leash he sits would only let us drag him... what a site!

He is also devious and smart. He as continually batted the door knob and locked us out of the house. Often when we leave for an extended time, he opens the cabinet with his treats and makes himself a feast. Whenever I come home with something new no matter if I set it down in the kitchen, living room or bedroom, he comes and inspects and usually sits on top of it. You can imagine how busy he is at Christmas! (Yes, he has pulled our tree down as he leaped to grab a "toy" from one of the limbs!)

We have lost him in the house a few times... one time he entered the air receptor area when I removed a filter and went to get the replacement out of the closet. He was inside the air duct space under our stairs! We eventually found him after looking everywhere. Another time he was behind the washer and dryer.

He has been known to wildly chase invisible mice, and has entertained us for many laughs when he curiously tries to get into something or pounce on a moving object (like a leg under the bed covers).

We can provide all receipts. We have never had a pet before and have never experienced the high cost of pet care when an animal you love gets very ill. I have never before understood how a person could spend so much money on a pet, but the problem is.... one test lead to another... and the only humane care for a pet that has brought love and laughter to your home is to seek what is wrong with him.

While I understand so many people are hurting financially, and therefore will not be able to give, I know that some people have extra funds and they love animals. If you are prompted to give we would greatly appreciate any donation, to help with Grayson's vet bills.

We are not a family that gets to go on yearly vacations or even big vacations. We live in a simple home (for 16 years), and a basic lifestyle. $3000 dollars for our family is huge! Our cars are 2002 Chrysler Van and 2000 honda Accord. (and we have an old GMC truck we use for the dump/very small trips).

Since I homeschool our children, (one graduates this year), we live on one income. Both of our teen boys work to help pay for their extras. So as a family we are doing all we can. We so appreciate any help. Even $10, $20, or $50 dollars will help!
