This is my beautiful, handsome boy Wicca. The sweetest Maine Coon kitty that I adopted when he was 6 months and this month he turns 10 years old. There are 3 things most important & precious to me in this world and they are my nephew, Nicolas, my niece, Bryn and my furry child Wicca. Wicca is my emotional support animal and literally saves my life every single day but much more than that Wicca is my world, my heart, my breathe, my everything.... he is my child (albeit a furry one). My love for and devotion to Wicca and the oceans I would cross and mountains I would climb to protect and take care of him run as deep as any mother's for her child. Which is why I have no other choice but to reach out for help. When Wicca was 4 he was diagnosed with Feline Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), which is a progressive disease affecting and causing damage to the intestines (not be confused with irritable bowel syndrome which is not the same as what Wicca has). Wicca's IBD can cause inflammation, ulcers or other damage to the intestines and bowels. Which is why sometimes, although not always, it may develop into intestinal cancer, due to long term damage to the intestines. Being a progressive disease it started with him being put on a liquid steroid and now 6 years later, he's on 6 medications, prescription wet and dry food, countless vet emergency visits along with many blood and other tests. It's gotten to the point that I'm not able to pay my rent because I'm using it for the vet bills. This month alone I'm short $650.00 for my bills and I just don't know where to turn for help. I'm on a fixed income and am spending over $500 at the vet a month and that's just for his meds and prescrition food and doesn't include any vet appt's and tests that may arise. As Wicca's Mom I am desperate to keep him healthy and on his meds and for him to receive the treatment he needs because if he didn't have his meds and he wasn't able to go to the vet when he needs to he would be in so much pain, discomfort & be so sick that out of love and not wanting him to suffer, I would have no other choice but to put him to sleep, which is a decision no mom or any person want's or should have to make. My world without Wicca in it is too unbearable for me to even ponder. So, with humility I'm asking for any help possible, even if it's $5, because that's a monumental amount for Wicca and I. Thank You so much for taking the time to read Wicca's story. Wishing all of you Light, Love, Health & Happiness. ** Please forgive any typing errors I'm doing this on my phone so it makes it a little more challenging typing wise.
