Working Together to Save Lives
Help! Jasper Can’t Breathe
|Jasper is a black and white male kitten with a sturdy build and a personality bigger than life. He is one of the sweetest cats you’ll ever meet! He adores to be picked up and hugged. When he sees you approaching him to pick him up, he raises his arms in the air for you in happy anticipation of the loving he is about to receive.Giving him kisses brings on the loudest purr of happiness and he kisses back! Right on the nose.
Jasper loves life and always has plenty to say as he walks around and talks to whomever will listen to him. And most afternoon naps are spent on the cat tree with or without his buddies. When you lay down for a nap or for the night, there will be a soft ball of purring fur curled up under your arm! But before he settles in, he gives you a rub and places his scent on you.
Due to an extremely aggressive illness when he was a baby, Jasper lives with major congestive issues for which treatments are administered three times each day. He’s a good sport and just lays there while drops are inserted in each nostril and his anti-biotic is administered orally. He sneezes, coughs a bit, then pulls himself together and runs off while panting and breathing through his mouth. All of this medication is necessary to keep the mucous at a minimum so it does not completely block the small opening he has to breathe through. Every 4 – 5 hours, this treatment is repeated and he lays there and accepts it.
At some point, the antibiotics will stop working for Jasper and he will not be able to breathe. The only way out for this sweet cat is this very expensive stent surgery. Depending on how invasive the scarring is, the cost of the stent procedure ranges from $4,600 to $6,500. We won’t know the full extent of the damage until he’s under anesthesia for the CT and ballooning procedures. We are dedicated to raising the funds to make this happen. Please help us keep our commitment by donating any amount to this gofundme, or by sending check in the mail to: Precious Pets Almost Home, PO Box 411855, Chicago IL 60641.
