Seymour has hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. He needs financial assistance for treatment and care. Your support can make all the difference!

My cat Seymour is not well. He was fine up until mid- August and then out of the blue, he began walking with a limp. Since then, his breathing has become heavy, and the vet found fluid buildup in his chest. I have to bring Seymour to the vet at least twice a week to have the fluid drained from his chest and for follow-ups.

An ultrasound has "confirmed" that he has hyperthrophic cardiomyopathy. Because of this, he now has a severe lack of energy, which is completely out of character for Seymour. I am syringe feeding 4 times a day until he can regain his appetite.

I really need some financial aid to help pay for the visits with the vet and cardiologist, as well as treatment for Seymour. I have already spent over $1000 dollars, and am having difficulty paying for all the medications, the continual follow-ups, and additional testing such as getting an electrocardiogram ($500).

I am also looking to get a second opinion with a cardiologist that specializes in animal heart disease. This area of medicine is very expensive being that they have more knowledge than a general practitioner. A consultation is roughly $100 in addition to further testing that may be needed.

The disease my cat apparently has is very treatable, and can extend his life for years with proper veterinary care and treatment. I want to do all that I can to give him a chance to pull through this. He is truly an incredible friend and pet.

Please help me raise money to afford treatment with a heart specialist and with further testing needed such as retesting of blood work, ultrasound, etc.

My current vet visits which include follow-ups, meds, and retesting has put me in a financially difficult situation.

My cat is amazing! Seymour is my best friend and loves me unconditionally. The thought of being without him kills me, but we are going to keep our faith in God that he will get better. My heart can't bear the thought of losing him. Every morning, prior to being sick, he would wait for me in the bathroom, or if I was sleeping in, he would wake me up with a kiss and he loved to snuggle. Just placing my hand on him brings loud purrs.

He has always been a happy cat full of energy and it pains me to see him like this, but he hasn’t given up and neither will I. Please help Seymour...

There is always hope and with the money donated, I will not give up this fight to do whatever I can to give Seymour all the necessary medical care and attention needed. Please donate to give him a fighting chance at recovery......
