‘Chop’ had a rough start to life but when she was found wandering around a farm house in NSW 5 years ago, her life took an unexpected turn for the better.
She was taken to a vet who gave her a clean bill of health after which she spent 3 years being doted on in a share-house. When the share-house dispersed, Chop naturally stuck to her best mate, Nicholas and they journeyed around NSW settling 2 years ago in Cheltenham, Victoria. All has been well and Chop is a ‘great cat’ who loves head butting but very suddenly 2 weeks ago Chop become unwell and after exhausting all finances she was destined to be euthanised yesterday morning.
Dr Marcus Hayes at Southern Animal Health asked for our help to give Nicholas and Chop a chance.
Nicholas said: “Our 5yo cat Chop has been unwell and through multiple vets. She is still flighting what SAH believes is a liver/blockage issue. She has spent 5 days on fluid therapy and a round of antibiotics with no improvement and the next step would be to open her up and take a look around.
We have already spent around $4,000 over the past couple weeks and are ready to give up as many different outcomes are still possible. SAH asked that if we could secure a bit of funding and come back to the table again they’d be happy to drop their price of surgery by half or even two thirds. This would allow them to at least do one last
exploratory surgery and see if there is anything that can be fixed on the spot within reason and give our little girl one more shot.”
PMC were pleased to be able to give Chop and Nicholas that shot at cure. Sadly at operation it was found that Chop had an inoperable pancreatic tumour and she was given her eternal wings whilst still on the operating table.
Rest and heal sweetheart… Love from all your friends at PMC xxxxooooxxxx
