Help Meeko and Winston

These are Jen and Seth's little boys. Two young, healthy Siamese kittens who were suddenly struck by--what is as-of-yet--an unknown illness. Here is their story:

Winston, a 10-month old purebred Siamese kitten suddenly stopped eating, drinking and playing on February 9. Initial x-rays showed a mass in his stomach which, upon subsequent films, showed positive progression. Winston, however, did not improve and was quickly becoming dehydrated, despite subcutaneous fluid injections. He was seen by a specialist and had exploratory abdominal surgery on February 13, 2015. The surgery revealed no foreign bodies, but the vet took biopsies of his stomach, all areas of his intestines and his lymph nodes to rule out a variety of conditions. The biopsy results won't be in for about five business days. In the meantime, he is recovering from surgery at the animal hospital, where he is under the watchful eye of their caretakers, as well as his family.

On the same day Winston had surgery, his 15-month old brother, Meeko, began exhibiting similar symptoms and was taken immediately to the same emergency vet who administered subcutaneous fluids, an antiemetic and acid controlling medications. He was then sent home for observation.

On the morning of February 14, Meeko's symptoms had not improved and he was admitted for observation, blood work, subcutaneous fluids and the same series of antibiotics Winston is now receiving. The vets remain perplexed, but they, along with Meeko and Winston's family remain committed to getting to the bottom of the situation and getting them back to 100% health.

The medical expenses for Meeko and Winston this week alone are well over $8,000.

Any help is so very deeply appreciated, and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
