Our sweet Cecelia can't seem to catch a break. This loving cat came into Orangeburg County Animal with a litter of kittens. Lucky for her, one of our members pulled the family and was able to raise her family in quiet loving environment. Soon her little family was adopted. Then it was Cecelia's turn. And she was adopted to someone who really loved her.
But once again life knocked Cecelia down. Her new human lost her job and couldn't afford her rent. She was evicted and while she was trying to get her things together, the landlord left the apartment door open and Cecelia was sent into the outdoors. Her human notified us and our member who fostered her drove for hour to get there. Once she arrived, there she knocked on doors until she found someone who had seen our little girl. Luckily she was taken back into our care.
Then last week we noticed she was losing weight rapidly. She was taken to our vet, where after lots of tests, they discovered that she was suffering with Feline Cholangitis. This disease affects pancreas, and kidneys.
Her condition had become so severe that she is being given fluids by an iv. It was a 50/50 shot that this would work. The last couple of days she has begun to show some improvement. While she still refuses to eat, she is now standing. We think she can some home on Friday.
We worried about he cost for treatment, but there was no way we could just let her die. She is grateful.
