Welcome to Dog Ranch Rescue Cleopatra and Teetsi
Cleo got all of her staples taken out this morning with Emma’s help all 40 of them. I still can’t get over that she’s alive, but we are so happy she is.
“On the menu tonight for Cleo a peanut butter sandwich and cool ranch Doritos lunch was peanut butter crackers breakfast was a peanut butter sandwich a leftover warmed up steak patty and snacks throughout the day of peanut butter crackers this girl loves peanut butter. No to the Mac n cheese, no the the warmed peanut butter “gravy”, no to cheese stuffed meat lovers pizza, no to the bagel and she spit out the kibble that was snuck in her peanut butter sandwich. We shall see what midnight snack prevails. I’m thinking something with peanut butter ”
Cleo got busted out of the hospital! Last week at this time we were making decision about euthanasia and here she is. Cleo’s feeding tube has been removed she still won’t eat anything except human food but her foster mom Cassandra has picked her up and taken her home. I’m sure she will be offering her many things to see if we can help get her on the track for eating healthy again soon but right now we will take this step as a very positive one.
Hallelujah that’s just what we needed to hear. She has been such a heartbreaking rescue, we felt we had lost her a few times but we didn’t give up and no matter how bad she felt and she felt really bad she didn’t give up either. Cleo will go down in history as one of our most expensive rescues who was at 20k a couple of days ago and by the time we are able to get her home from the hospital it will be more than that. This afternoon they told us they will be pulling her feeding tube now that they got her to eat and we hope and pray that she continues to improve. Cleo has a new family waiting for her and have been clinging to the reports that we get about her and we know they will be thrilled to hear this very good news.
Cleo is holding steady, her feeding tube has been put in place to get her the nutrition she needs. Thank goodness everything else for her health is holding steady and she continues to improve. Thank you to everyone who has donated and prayed for her to get better. She’s not out of the woods but we are pretty dang happy with where she is now.
She will continue to stay in the hospital but if she remains stable she will be released with a feeding tube that Emma of course knows how to take care of.
Cleo is one these cases that require me to ask you to help us. We need donations to help us pay her expenses to save her life. Any amount is greatly appreciated and sent straight to her care. If you can help we thank you if you can’t then we ask for you to help with positive thoughts and prayers.
Laura was very emotional worried that she made the right call and was so happy that it turned out that she did. Rescue is hard, it’s stressful and we care a great deal about them in our care and we are hoping and praying that this time it will all work out.
There is nothing more we can do but keep supporting her and hope that she makes a turn for the better but we are pretty concerned.
Cleo is perfect, she is absolutely perfect, she is sweet and gentle with everyone and everything. The volunteers all love her, she’s a perfect first time bear owner and I am here to plead with you to share her far and wide to help find her a home again. It’s just sad to see her like this and what she needs is a place to call her own again.
