This is Midna Love the miracle cat!
Max Louie of 808 Animal Rescue received a telephone call from a feral cat colony caretaker about a stray which she found lying lifelessly on the ground.
Max Louie shared with the fine people at Love Meow: “At about midnight, we received a call that a critically ill kitten was being rushed to the vet ER. Shortly after arriving, her heart stopped. The vet brought her back to life, and she was immediately put on life support with a staff member by her side every second.
This 4-6 month old baby is a real fighter!”
They worried that Midna might not make it to see another day. “Another vet explained that she would have a less-than 1% chance of recovering to the point where she could leave the ER. The estimated bill to merely attempt to save her life would be $7,000-$10,000.
We decided to give this baby a chance to decide on her own by doing what we could on our end. We asked for at least 24-hours of the works: life-support, blood transfusions from a donor cat, antibiotics, vitamins, fluids, and continual monitoring. We prayed all night for her survival and happiness.”
Max went to check on the cat. “She was just lying there unconscious, so I petted her. As soon as I did that, her eyes opened for a brief moment. It was then I knew the cat was still there fighting, and she was going to be ok,” Louie said.
Later that night, they made sure Midna got the care she needed coupled with a lot of love to help her recover. The next day, her condition truly had improved. Midna opened her eyes and even started eating some food on her own.
“The next day, we learned that not only had she regained consciousness, but she was alert and eating! Her platelets and red blood cell count were critically low so she received more blood transfusions and a few more days in the ER.”
“Just one day after coding and being resuscitated, here she is, curious and lively like the kitten she should be.”
On the third day, Midna was back to her old self again. “We got to see her fully awake and get to know her personality–she is the absolute sweetest, most affectionate, loving kitty ever.”
The kitten who had a less-than-1% chance of leaving the hospital went home with Max and his wife on day number 5.
“She needed around-the-clock medication for weeks. My wife and I lost a lot of sleep (“If I take her 1am can you take her 6am?” “Deal.”), but she was so worth it.”
“This baby was named Midna Love, after a fictional character of a powerful spirit who died and came back to life to guide the living. Today, Midna lives up to her name and is a loving, lively miracle! You would never know she had any health challenge in her young life. Over the last couple of weeks she has been gaining back her healthy weight and getting more comfy around her humans. We are so fortunate to have found her when we did.”
Midna, which didn’t have a chance, now instead has a loving forever home!
