My Poor Cat May Be Dying.

Abby has a serious liver disease. I will take him to a 24/7 care center to get a liver biopsy done. But, the vet thinks it’s fatty liver disease, but a biopsy will tell for sure. They did not give me hope for him. He is yellow (Jaundice), lethargic, weak, skinny, dehydrated and depressed. He is on IV’s and they are syringe feeding him because he will not eat on his own.

The vet bill comes up to $1,000. The biopsy is another $1,500, but the vet gave me a $4,000 certificate so I won’t have to pay for the biopsy at least. They will insert a tube to feed him once the biopsy gets done.

Why? Why? Why?

Oh honey, I am so very sorry.  This is very bad news.  You must feel numb!  

But wow, a $4000 certificate?  Awesome!  What a wonderful vet you have!!

I will continue to be hopeful and pray for Abby Kitty and I am so glad you decided to post on the forum because you need support during this terrible, stressful time.  

I'm here for you...praying for the miracle you and Abby deserve.  You have gone above and beyond for your boy.  You try to stay positive now, as you don't know for sure what the future will bring.
