This beautiful lady was living the good life...until she got sick. And then her family didn't want her anymore. So they took her to the shelter and that's where Purr Partners stepped in. We brought Tana into our program and got her to the vet right away to see what was going on with her. She was very thin but had a great appetite. She had no other noticeable symptoms. We were certain that it would be her thyroid which we could fix with surgery and she would be as good as new. After a thorough exam, the vet determined that it was not her thyroid. Her lab work was normal, yet she continued to eat very well but remained at her weight of just over 6lbs. The most likely diagnosis for Tana is intestinal lymphoma. Other than being thin, you would never know that she is sick. Her prognosis right now is good, but anything can happen. She is not currently on any medication but could require daily steroids if her appetite decreases. Tana could live for many years. It's impossible to predict. She is so loving and just wants a warm lap to snuggle in for a nap. She is front declawed but will still make biscuits and use the scratching post. She is not a huge fan of other cats as she seems to be frightened of them. Without her claws, she has no defenses so that could be why. She seems fine with quiet dogs. This gorgeous girl would love to live out the rest of her days in a quiet, loving and patient home where she will get to enjoy being pampered. As a hospice foster, Purr Partners will continue to cover any medical costs for Tana for the rest of her life. Please consider opening your home and your heart to this very deserving girl. She will reward you with so much love.
