Meet Scamp.

This sweet 2-year-old boy belonged to my grandma from the time he was tiny. Recently, during my final visit with my ailing grandma (who adored Scamp), I brought him home with me from Colorado, promising Grandma I’d take good care of him for her. A little over a week later, my grandma was called home to Heaven. Soon, Scamp became very thin. He’d gone from living with only my grandma and his sister (whom I also brought home and she’s doing great!) in a small single room space to a big new home well over a thousand miles away with cats, dogs, and more people. When this sweet boy, who normally relishes in a good tummy rub with loud purrs, refused to accept affection, I knew something was very wrong.

Under stress from the long move and all the major and sudden changes in his life, he’d apparently stopped eating and his liver had begun to fail. Other complications followed. His entire body turned yellow with jaundice—even his stunning blue eyes—and anemia set in. He’s been in the hospital for a little over two weeks now, fighting to survive with the help of a feeding tube, IV fluids, vitamins, medication, and daily visits from his new family. His doctor and I believe he has the will to live and that his body can recover. But, it is a very slow healing process and the hospital bills are mounting.

My newly adopted little guy has begun to show signs that he is getting better. He seeks and accepts all the affection he can get and over the past few days has finally begun to drink water and eat a little bit on his own. Eating is critical to getting well, so this is a fantastic step in the right direction. He’s also begun grooming himself again and the jaundice is starting to recede. Though all of these are great signs, he is not yet out of the woods. The doctor expects Scamp’s recovery to take at least a couple more weeks, but possibly as long as another month and a half.

Would you help me save this boy’s life? He’s a wonderful cat—one of the coolest I’ve ever known—and deserves a chance. THANK YOU!
