Before Caboodle Ranch was even a thought, Craig had one cat named Pepper who had five kittens. One of those five kittens was Tommy. (This story can be read on Caboodle Ranch's website.) Tommy became Craig's favorite... his right hand cat; his co-pilot on many adventures. He had been living at Caboodle Ranch since Craig bought the property in 2003.
Around the beginning of this year, Tommy became ill (see the post about it here) and underwent extensive medical treatment at a veterinary hospital in Gainesville, Florida. He had FIP, along with other ailments. When he was able to go home, Tommy's health was continually monitored by Craig and Dr. Lewis, Caboodle Ranch's veterinarian. His overall health was beginning to improve. He was starting to eat solid foods again and was gaining weight.
This was before the ASPCA came in, raided Caboodle Ranch and took Tommy and the rest of the Caboodle cats away.
We don't know what his current condition is, but we do know he's being used by the ASPCA to solicit donations.
Below is the email they're sending out. The picture is of Tommy:
The ASPCA is giving you false information in using this particular cat to solicit donations in the name of hoarding, abuse and/or neglect. Tommy has a disease and was receiving the best medical treatment a cat can be given. It's all documented in medical records.
Please help Craig continue the fight to get the Caboodle cats home again. Donations can be made through PayPal on Caboodle Ranch's website or by sending directly to their PayPal email address at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Again... Thank you so much for your support!
