Jiggles, the Marietta cat who managed to return home despite multiple gunshot wounds, is now at the emergency room of Upstate Veterinary Specialists.
The Community Pet Project (TCPP) announced December 13 on Facebook that Jiggles stopped breathing shortly after he arrived and had to be intubated. Dr. Garber has now issued a statement saying Jiggles is doing much better since receiving a blood transfusion.
For precautions, Jiggles will remain at the Upstate Veterinary Specialists emergency room for the weekend, just to be sure he's stable.
This emergency transfer for more specialized treatment means more money will be needed to pay this new vet bill. Jiggles bill is currently at $551.12, and will run about $1,000 to cover the weekend. The donation webpage at YouCaring reflects the added cost.
On the bright side, local news channel WYFF4 has stepped forward to spread about this sweet kitty.
Please help with the expenses if you can, and be sure to share the story of this miracle kitty, who managed to drag his broken body home, despite multiple gunshot wounds. If the amount raised goes over the projected $5,000, perhaps any additional funds could go to provide Jiggles with a wonderful Christmas.
No information has been discovered about who shot Jiggles, but tips can be left on the TCPP Facebook page.
