Cleo is an amazing, sweet cat in desperate need of radiation treatment to shrink a tumor in her brain. Please help me save her life.

I rescued Cleo in January, 2000. She lived behind a factory in Queens with her litter of six. Though she was starving she still took great care with her tiny kittens. She was a tough mom fending for her family. I took her in, found homes for her kittens and kept her. She adjusted immediately to domestic life and was and is a great and loyal companion. Cleo is the dominant kitty in our house but is loving and motherly to everyone in her feline family and she has been an extraordinary companion for me.

In August I noticed Cleo walking in circles. This would last for up to two minutes and she seemed lost afterward. The doctors examined her and noticed a growth in her ear but suspected a tumor. They started by treating the ear with medication and oral antibiotics. That seemed to help for a while and she didn’t circle for a month. By then another one of my cats suddenly went into kidney failure and unfortunately Cleo took a backseat until my other cat got better. Cleo suddenly began circling more often and having seizure like episodes that lasted 1-2 minutes and became vocal. On November 15, an MRI was done and a tumor was found in the pituitary gland. Cleo is eleven-years-old and otherwise healthy. The tumor is not operable. The only treatment available is radiation at a total cost of $7,500. The Neurologist states she’s an excellent candidate now because it hasn’t affected her brain yet, but time is of the essence. The cost of the treatment is well beyond my means and that is why I was compelled to start this fund. Please help me extend my beautiful cats life by making a donation to the Save Cleo Fund. Cleo has been an anchor for me during tough times and now I want to be there for her. Please help save my cat. She means the world to me.
