animal, a part of one's soul
|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.
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,
