Dora , AKA Momacita, is a dilute tortie with a tan spot on her forehead. Her favorite foods are catnip and greenies treats, but she’s not very food motivated. Dora loves play fighting with her daughter Ramona, chasing the red dot, snuggling and sleeping. She’s a very chill cat, who is content to just be in the same room. She enjoys short cuddle sessions, but otherwise is a very non-invasive cat. Her one bad habit is her tendency to scatter litter from her litterbox everywhere. Dora is special because she was found at a friend’s apartment complex with four tiny babies.
Robin, AKA Robgoblin, is a Lynx Point domestic short hair, who enjoys eating ANYTHING, unfortunately even if it’s inedible. His favorite activities are playing with every toy imaginable, especially the laser pointer, and snuggling under warm blankets. He is the most loving cat in the entire world. Before Robin was adopted, he was hit by a car and had to have surgery to remove a broken bone. He survived and now you can’t tell he was ever injured! He donates blood to pay it forward after all the help he had after his accident.
Finnegan, or Finn, is an orange tabby cat with short hair who enjoys eating freeze-dried meats, chicken necks and raw food. He likes to bother his big kitty-sister Cairo and can purr away a sad day. He has the smallest, cutest meow you've ever heard. Unfortunately, he gets a little rambunctious with his teeth when he plays sometimes! Finn was part of a T-N-R colony, but since he was clearly not feral, he had the chance to be adopted into a forever home. He donates blood because he likes the treats and toys.
Benjamin, or Ben, is a German Shepherd/Husky mix, a gentle giant, who is shy but can be very brave. He enjoys food and for a special treat he occasionally gets a cow tail. He loves walking, playing with his best friend, Lucy Bean, and snuggling. He is gentle, sweet and loving. His only bad habits are cabinet surfing and getting into EVERYTHING. He is big, but gentle and loves everyone! Ben donates blood to be a HERO!
Morgan is a 9-year-old yellow Labrador who was attacked by several dogs in her own backyard. Her right shoulder area was badly damaged and required weeks of regular bandage changes. Unfortunately, in addition to the obvious injuries, her kidneys and liver were also affected when her damaged muscles released toxins into her blood stream. After being hospitalized for several days, her kidney values began returning to normal and she began to feel better. It took almost a week of daily bandage changes and supportive care before she was able to leave the hospital.
Toby, a 6-month-old husky puppy, came to BluePearl in Renton with one seizure after another. His owners said he had eaten a mushroom in his backyard earlier that day and then several hours later had begun seizing. Toby's seizures were controlled but he then became comatose. He had his stomach pumped to remove as many of the mushrooms as possible and was put on a ventilator to breathe for him as he would not breathe on his own. He woke up 12 hours later and went home within 24 hours of when he arrived.
Amy, a 7-year-old Maine Coon, transferred to BluePearl needing surgery for a foreign body in her intestines. She was very sick upon presentation with a low blood pressure and her clotting factors were out of range. She was started on fresh frozen plasma from donors Toutle and Chester and taken to surgery. The foreign body was removed and an ulcer in her stomach was found.
Tater, a 1-year-old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, presented to BluePearl after being found in his yard unable to walk. There were a lot of bees in his yard when he was found and it was suspected that Tater had an anaphylactic reaction from a bee sting. He was given antihistamines and steroids to help with the allergic reaction. Unfortunately, he was very ill with a dangerously low blood pressure, severely bloody diarrhea and vomit, and he was coagulopathic, which meant his blood wouldn’t clot properly.
Bo’Sun, a 1-year-old domestic shorthair, presented to BluePearl for fever and chronic foot wounds. His feet were flushed and bandaged and he was started on pain medications and continued antibiotics. During the evening, he developed bloody diarrhea and developed low platelets (the part of the blood that helps to form clots). Ultrasound revealed an intussusception of the intestines and colon. He was taken to surgery and given a whole blood transfusion from donor Tommy.
