Hi, my name is Doja. I’m a 15 year old female that likes long…naps. I also like to lay in the sun and enjoy the balcony in summer. My hobbies include climbing in boxes, licking plastic bags, and chasing the occasional laser pointer. My favourite show is the 24 hour Aquarium Channel.

I’m a very friendly cat, I love being around people. I never bite or scratch anyone (except for my owner’s friend Josh, but he deserved it). I sometimes get up to no good, like helping myself to food on the counter. My most recent accomplishment was stealing a Christmas ornament and batting it around the apartment.

A few months ago I was diagnosed with a hyper thyroid which causes me to drink a lot of water and eat a lot of food, but lose weight. If left untreated, I will eventually waste away. I tried pills to treat the condition, but they made me terribly sick and lose my appetite. I then tried a paste that’s applied to my ears twice a day, but that too has been ineffective. My only option is for an iodine treatment that will completely cure me and allow me to continue on with a normal life. Unfortunately, I don’t have the $1600 needed to pay for the treatment. I should have listened to my owners and gotten a job or at least pitched in with dusting around the apartment instead of doing the opposite and leaving fur all over.

I know I’m old and there are many younger (but possibly not as cute) cats out there, but I’m part Siamese so I have many more years left in me if I can get this treatment. Other than the hyper thyroid, I’m in excellent health. Every little bit would go a long way to helping me get the treatment I need.

Thank you for taking the time to read this. Meowy Christmas!
