a part of one's soul remains
|Peanut is a 5 year old Somali/Domestic Long Hair cat that was rescued as a
small kitten (upper right photo). She was extremely malnourished weighed
only 0.2 pounds! In a matter of one week, she began to gain weight and thrive
(lower right photo). After being treated for ringworm, her fur became beautiful
and she has grown up to be a beautiful, extremely loving and loyal cat.
In the last 1 ½ years, Peanut has developed wheezing and has shown signs of
respiratory distress. She underwent a rhinoscopy last July, which revealed
she has severe nasopharyngeal stenosis (narrowing of the nasal section of
the pharynx). Despite aggressive antibiotic and steroid treatment, her
condition continues to decline. The treatment for this rare condition in cats
is nasopharyngeal stenting. To see a video of Peanut and "hear" how her
condition sounds, visit our YouTube page by clicking here.
This procedure will be done by a cardiologist at the Ohio State Veterinary
College. The expected procedure costs, with follow up care is estimated at
$4,000. If you wish to make a donation towards Peanuts’ medical fund, please
