10/13 Update: Goal reached!
Dana has been dealing with severe issues with her health since she entered our care a few years back as a baby bottle kitten. At first, her vomiting was the main issue but after trying various medications, that problem has subsided. She is still struggling with heart and kidney complications that our medical clinic does not have the means to figure out what's causing these, so we're needing to work with an outside specialist, a cost that does not come cheap. The next steps to heal Dana is sending her to a specialty center for a CT, which costs $2,500. We don't give up on our animals here so we'll do whatever it takes to make sure we're doing everything we can for Dana to live a full life, but we need your help in order to do so.
We believe the root of her medical ailments is a mass in her thorax that is affecting her ability to swallow. What the specialists are unsure of is what the mass is and if it's surgically possible to remove it to help her, questions the CT scan will provide answers to. Since Dana came into our care, she's been living in a foster home surrounded by love, proving every day that she has the strong will to live. Even with her various medical conditions, she's a happy cat that still makes biscuits and loves her cuddle time. We know once healed she will make someone feel so loved in the forever home she finds. This two-year-old bold and playful girl is ready to finally feel her best, and with your support, we're confident we can get her there. Donate to our medical fund today so we can finally find the answers we need to heal Dana!
