Here he is as a eensy weensy tiny little baby
Here is Kristi and Syfil:
He is the coolest you'll ever have the chance to meet. Some call him Syfil, others call him Mikull, and the rare few call him Daddy. This heavenly made feline has been through all the ups and downs with her. Without question, HE is the man of her dreams. Life without him is unimaginable for her, myself and also to many that know him.
He's known for his distinct whiny meow...
His plethora of girlfriends:
His love for drinking out of the bathroom sink:
And if you're lucky, you've probably gotten a tongue kiss from him a time or two...
So, recently Syfil was not acting like his charming self. He had been visibly depressed and had lost some weight along with occasional vomiting. Fast forward to what Kristi thought would be a routine exam for Syf, turned out to be a diagnosis of adenocarcinoma, a cancer found in the gastrointestinal system of a cat. It's an aggressive cancer and the exact cause is still not known by doctors.

His treatment plan is pretty costly. She took him to an oncologist and he will need surgery to remove his tumor and do a resection (remove tumor and reconnect small intestine to the large intestine).
I know Syfil Mikull would never even dream of asking for help. Well, he couldn't mainly because he's a cat. But, he truly is the best cat anyone could ask for and in order for everyone to truly see this he HAS to live. :)
We both are lucky to have such awesome friends and family. I figured this could be a way to help my sister worry less about everything she has to do for him. The surgery will be performed this Friday (7/28). The total cost of the procedure is $2,000. So, friends, family, and strangers, if you have the $ to spare, it would more than appreciated.
Love to all,
Syfil will beat cancer!
