12:26 pm - Auction to help Buddy

We've had a bad year with cats, with both Batty & DJ dying. teaotter's cat Buddy is 16 and his only health problem is that he's been on thyroid medicine for the last 3 years. Unfortunately, over the past several months, he's begun losing weight, and continues to do so after the level of his medicine was adjusted to give him normal thyroid hormone levels. The vet is fairly certain that the problem is the medicine Buddy is taking for his thyroid problems. Buddy is too old and frail for surgery, but there's another option - an injection of radioactive injection, which has a 99% success rate. Unfortunately, because the company that does this then keeps the cat for 4 days and is required to treat everything coming out of the cat as radioactive waste, the procedure costs around $1,500, so we are having an auction to raise money for his treatment, because our financial situation is far from good. If you have anything to donate, or want to bid on anything, please go to nuke_our_cat. There was nothing we could do to help Batty or DJ, but we are hoping to be able to help Buddy.

I wish I could help, good luck. I wonder what it is with the domino effect in multi-cat households. We started the year with a sickly cat that just had gum surgery. He died of mouth cancer in Jan, my Floyd almost died of an embolism in April and then his littermate Simon died of stomach cancer in June. Yeah, we're not even going to talk about how much I've spent on vet bills.
