Our wonderful, friendly and kind six year old cat became a bit peaky earlier this year. He went on and off his food and then seemed to quickly recover. When our poor little guy went much more severely downhill in February we were terrified and rushed him to the vets immediately, and ran up a huge amount of debt getting him tested in every way possible. The verdict was grim, initially Feline Hepatic Lipidosis which has, more recently, been discovered to have been caused by Lymphoma. We don’t know how long our little guy has left but we want to give him as happy and comfortable a life as possible.
We changed Pet Insurance providers in December, and sadly they decided that since we had, in our tearful and sleep deprived state mentioned on our first emergency vet appointment that “he had been a bit ill over Christmas and had lost a little weight” (as recorded in our pet’s notes by the vet) that this was a pre-existing condition and we are no longer covered by their insurance for anything relating to this.
As such we are currently trying to find ways to clear the massive amounts of debt we have just incurred and will likely continue to incur should our fluffy best friend have to go through chemotherapy and other treatments to improve his quality of life.
If you can spare just a little it would mean the world to us. Thanks to our mounting vet bills during COVID we are struggling to make ends meet, and ensuring that our amazing little friendly cat has the best quality of life is our top priority.
Thank you so much.
