Hot Slut Of The Day!

Jemmie, the rescue dog from Sacramento, CA whose blood may save two orphan kittens from going completely blind!

We don’t need more examples for why dog friends are a trillion times better than most humans. (I said, MOST humans. Of course, they’re not better than Joan Collins, Charo, Betty White and the dude at the gas station who bought me a Snickers because he said I looked sad. I was sad. Gas was $3.01.) But here’s another example for why dog friends are a trillion times better than most humans.

The Dodo says that Jemmie has hung out at the Sacramento SPCA ever since a staffer adopted her in 2011 after her previous humans “surrendered” her for whatever reason. Jemmie doesn’t only hang out at the SSPCA. She also earns her Snausages by working as a foster mother to abandoned kittens. Recently, two stray brother kittens were brought in and they needed more than love and affection from St. Jemmie. They also needed HER BLOOD! The brother kittens were the only survivors of a litter found in a backyard. The brother pussies were in a bad way. At 5 weeks old, they only weighed a pound each (“Fat asses” – Cheryl Tiegs) and they had ulcers in their eyes.

The vets at the SSPCA are treating the eye ulcers with medicated drops, and they’re also treating the kittens with a special serum made from Jemmie’s blood. They say that they’ve done this thing before. They don’t know if they can save all of the kittens’ eyeballs, but they’re hoping to save one eyeball each. via The Dodo:

The science behind the serum and how it works is pretty fascinating. But essentially, Jemmie’s plasma (the liquid part of blood which allows matter like red and white blood cells to flow through the veins) contains proteins that help speed up the eye healing process.

“To start treatment, antibiotic drops are given 4 times a day and serum drops are given every 2 hours for the first two days,” Varanini said. “This blood could come from a cat, but since we need such a large amount to get enough serum for treatment … a medium to large dog is a better choice since they are less likely to suffer any side effects from the donation.”

On top of giving those kittens her blood, she also plays with them and slathers them with love.

But she’s not foster mama-ing these particular kittens, because she’s fostering a bunch at home already. Her foster plate is full.

I will closely watch this story to see how the tiny ginger pussies react to St. Jemmie’s blood. If they grow up to be all do-goody and sweet and maternal toward other species, we’ll know that it’s Jemmie’s blood at work and we’ll all sign a petition telling the government to make a Jemmie blood transfusion mandatory for everyone. Sure, the side effects will include sniffing assholes and napping 19 hours a day, but some of us do that already, so it’s okay.
