Urgent Request for Squashies

Since we aren't on Facebook and we don't know our blood types, and we are not Asian kitties, we are reposting Squashies' Mom's urgent request here:  Please spread the word.   You can read more about her illness on their blog here.    If you are an Asian Breed cat and have type B blood, you could save a kitty's life!


Urgent Request!

If your cat has been blood typed, and is Type B (Rare but prevalent in Asian breeds,) we need your help.  Squashies is in desperate need of a transfusion. We can't find a Type B donor.

We will pay all expenses to bring the cat and you here to Baltimore.  With a very generous bonus for your time and discomfort. Call Dee @ number on TK and Squashies blog.

Our little girl is running out of options.
Thank you!


Mom got the following table from this website:  http://ahdc.vet.cornell.edu/clinpath/modules/coags/typefel.htm

Note which types of cats might be the best candidates.


Update:    7:30 pm - they have found two donors!  You can read about it on their blog.

  7. This is so terrific, so many kitties and hooomans posting this about Squashie. We didn't know about blood types either. I sure hope she finds a cat.

  8. I will make sure that from now on, soon as the Vet needs to draw blood I will get mom to ask what type I have. Somekitty will need me one day just as dear Squashies does.

  9. We aren't the type B's but we will go tweet about this post and see if we can't stir up someone who is.

    Have a great day.

    hugs, Max
