Respect Your Cat Day: March 28th, 2020
We love our cats — but it might feel like…
During the recent freezing temperatures and snow storms, Morgan found himself in a situation which required fire and rescue workers to save his life. During a weekend trip to Long Island (which we do most every weekend) Morgan and his fur-brother Charlie ventured away from us.
Typically Morgan and Charlie will roam the property and quickly return home, this time they didn’t. We searched for a few hours and eventually found Charlie, but Morgan was nowhere in sight. Seven hours into the search we received a phone call, and Morgan had been found. He was rescued from Noyac Bay, which had been frozen over, but was beginning to thaw. Firefighters took a boat about 60 yards out to rescue Morgan who was near death.
Once out of the water, he was rushed to the veterinary hospital where he received a plasma transfusion and they gradually increased his core body temperature back to normal. After an overnight stay for observation, Morgan was able to return home. The total cost for Morgan’s care was more than $2,800. With our PetFirst pet insurance plan that covers Morgan, we were reimbursed for $2,500 of his care.
