Update: the first test came back with no cancer cells present, it is now suspected he has FIP. This is an extremely aggressive disease for cats that was previously fatal, but there are experimental treatments that can cure FIP, if that is what he is experiencing. Test results for FIP are still pending. Please stay tuned to my Facebook for updates and if you can spare any extra to donate, anything helps. The treatment is expensive and supportive care has been over 2k now. Of course no price is too high for my big baby, but we really appreciate any donations or shares i will continue to update on Facebook each day. Thank you.
On Friday my big boy started having unusual swelling in his abdomen. I took him to the vet today with the hopes that it was just a digestive issue. He loves to eat plastic, beef jerky (and the package it came in), random herbal teas, and other miscellaneous items so I was really hoping he was just constipated due to eating something he's not supposed to. Of course I keep these items away from him, but if you've ever had a cat you know they find a way.
Unfortunately it isn't plastic. It's cancer.
I'm shaking so hard typing this and I do not want to accept this.
The vet said he will be referred to a specialist and they may be able to remove the mass.
I will do whatever I need to do for my Pixel. He and his brother are my world. If you know me, you know how much he means to me.
If anyone can spare anything for his vet bills I would appreciate it.
I have already paid over $1500 myself but the surgery will be more.
Thank you for reading this post even if you are unable to donate anything.
I will also need emotional support through this and any healing energies are welcome.
