Ray's Memorial Fund

25513748_1511803787.7957_funddescriptionUpdate: Our sweet Ray passed away, due to complications from the mass in his mouth. Despite my best efforts, I couldn't save him. We all prepared ourselves for a Christmas without gifts but we didn't want to have a Christmas without our kitty.  Right up until he breathed his last, Ray had his paw wrapped around my finger tightly, like he was trying hard to hang on. He was just too tired. I know he wanted to stay for us but his little body just gave out. Now I'm left with an aching heart but it's full of gratitude to all of you, who helped Ray get as far as he could. Unfortunately, now I still owe American Animal Hospital a large sum & I wish to give Ray a nice urn for his remains. He deserves the best. He was the best. If you could please donate to Ray's memory, it would mean everything to our family. Thanks. 

Previous: As some of you are aware, our cat, Ray, has been diagnosed with diabetes.  The diabetes is now under control and he is doing wonderful.  The problem is how we discovered the diabetes.  A few months ago, Ray developed, what we think is a abscess tooth (for a short time the vet was calling it a tumor) but we now know better. I have to add that Ray and I always knew. We were unable to clean the infection out, due to the diabetes posing too much of a threat. Now that his bloodwork is up to par, we want to put him under and clean out all the crappy stuff in his head and let him continue his long life. He has fought hard to continue to eat dry food (he has never liked wet) even though half his mouth is constricted. He has continued to drink water, even though it makes him cough and gag. I have watched this animal fight and fight this thing. I wish to give him a chance to be free of it. Unfortunately, the funds have run out with all the trips to the vet for his diabetes. Please help Ray! I can see the fight in him. I do not see euthanization as an option!! I have told him all along, "I wont give up if you dont give up", like the "Train" lyrics. So, asking for help is how Im not giving up.
