Yum Yum Update 8/5

Here's a quick update on Yum Yum's condition...she is beginning to come out more often, which is especially true when my wife is home.

Although she has not begun to groom herself like she used to, she has begun to wash her face and clean her claws: I know, it doesn't sound like much, but this is a vast improvement over how she was just a week ago. Also, God has blessed us mightily in that a huge oral surgeon bill we were expecting turned out to be quite low, so the money that was set aside for that expense has been sent to Yum Yum's Surgery Fund. This brings the total to: $515.00 of the $1,500 that is needed!

Below, listed in alphabetical order, are those who have donated to Yum Yum's Surgery Fund so far:

Yum Yum Needs your Help


  1. These are very encouraging signs that Yum Yum will be okay. Sure hope you can get enough for her surgery to relieve the pain. Keeping you and Yum Yum in my prayers!

  2. Karen and Gerard: Thank you! I'm really happy to see her coming out more often. I really miss the old Yum Yum- playing, running around, and getting into trouble. I hope that she will go back to doing that someday.
