Relaying Request for Assistance

Please go to Cat Chat for information on how to help the animals who have misplaces their humans and have been taken in by various animal groups because of the nasty fires in Colorado and/or the floods.   Mommy remembers the devastation of the floods that happened when she was a little girl. Mommy had to leave her home by boat, holding on to her woofie. So she is specially sensitive about this disaster.
Earlier this year one of her nieces lost her home to the Colorado fires, so this cause is important and very real to her sister's family. Help the animals if you can! Her sister's husband (now deceased) was involved in search and rescue in the mountains there and had his own trained bloodhounds, please remember assistance is important for trained rescue and service animals as well as dear family pets! Volunteer some time at your local shelter if you can't donate anything!

And if at all possible, if you helped mommy and me it would be wonderful.  Mommy was at the human vet yesterday and her new medication (desperately needed) is very very expensive. Thanks!
 I wouldn't ask if I hadn't just found out from the pharmacy just how expensive this new drug is even with a co-pay! Medicine is indeed getting ridiculously expensive. This drug is two thirds the cost of my already very expensive insulin.
Prayers are accepted, too!
The Twinkletoes Gang said something about contacting the medical company.  I've tried with other meds, including insulin. Spent hours and hours trying to research and contact companies. If you have your own insurance most medical companies will not help. You basically are on your own. Even if the co-pays are high, the price of the medication they can charge insurance companies is quite profitable, and they don't want to lose that money if they don't have to. Yup, even on medicare co-pays can be high! Lovely, huh?

We hope your mom is able to get what she needs. It's no fun to be short of green papers.
