Please pray for Derrik..

Our daughter Danneeka's cat Derrik needs some prayer. I know that there are so many other much more important things to pray for, but this little fellow is the love of my daughter's life and yesterday he was bitten by a snake. We have taken him to the vet where he remains overnight again, but the best we can do for him to to have him on a drip to try and flush the poison out of his kidneys and eventually his bloodstream. We can have an anti-venom given to him at a cost of either $650.00 or $900.00, depending on e which snake bit him, and if we decide on the anti venom we have to pay $250.00 for the test to find that out which snake bit him. So our poor Derrik, we will just have to pray and ask God to keep him in his care because to pay that much for an injection (and there is still only a 50/50 chance it would save him!) is more than we can do.

He is the most beautiful cat with a lovely playful temperament and this is very hard for Deekie, and all of us so, your prayers would be greatly appreciated. I will say it again, I know there are lot more important things to pray for, but a little cat that is one of God's special creatures is important too - even Jesus said in Matthew ch 10 verse 29, "Are not two sparrows sold for a cent? And yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father's knowledge....." He knows about and cares for every creature - so he knows about and cares for Derrik -
