Last week Gato started to show signs of something not quite right with him. We took Gato to 3 different vets over the past 2 days and have exuased our funds. The first 3 vets did nothing but take our money. After an exauseting a emotional day yesterday (JAN 27) We finnaly found a vet that has given us a little confidence. He actually sat down with us and explained what he knew and things that needed to be started immediatly for treatment. Currently Gato has lost 2lbs (he only weights 7) and has developed a rash on his back that looks like brusing.  He is extreamly emicated but is eatting food and drinking. He is having some type of issue with abosrbing nutrients through his intestines.

We have had him in the vet for 3 days now. The hospital we are currently at is  Gandy Animal Hospital, directed by Mina Heinen who is the one taking care of our boy. He has been given a IV with fluids and vitamins.The orginal estimaded treatment costs are around 2300. We have almost covered those costs, but there still needs to be surgery done along with medications. We are so heart broken and scared because we cannot afford to have this surgery completed. 

Gato is like a child to Allie and me. He has taught us so many important lessons as a couple and individuals. When we are sad, sick, or confused he is the one who comes around and snuggles with us and comforts us. He is the one who greets us every day when we get off after a hard day of work. Allie and I work on opposite schedule ( I work full time at night and she works full time during the day) and live together. He is the one who sleeps with us every day and night and keeps us company.  Gato has brought Allie and I closer together on making decisions by giving us more responsibility to take care of him. Over the past year he has given us so much joy and love that it hurts us so much to see him in pain like this.  I never thought I would care so much for something like this but now as everything is crashing down, I feel like all I can do is reflect on all the amazing things he has taught us. 

We are looking for help from anyone who can give us more information or anything in general that can help us cope with what is going on. 

Thank you so much for your time to read this.
