Team S.O.S. is raising money to save the eyesight -- and life -- of Oscar; the smooshy-faced wonder cat of your DREAMS.


Miraculous Oscar news!!! 

Yesterday I took Oscar in to get a second opinion on the cost of his surgery, but while there we got some news we didn't expect: the degeneration of his corneas had slowed and there was evidence of blood vessel formation behind his eyes, suggesting that his body may be expelling the sequestrums on it's own.

What?! This is amazing!

We always knew there was a rare chance something like this could happen, but when he was first examined, there was no blood vessel formation and Oscar was in a lot of pain, suggesting that the eyes were being compromised, and quickly. Now, due to his eyedrops and treatments, there is hope that the sequestrums might, in a number of months, slowly resolve themselves without a surgical fix! 

I am POSITIVE that this is a result of the incredible love and support shown him by you guys in the past couple days. I am so touched, and so excited that Oscar's cause was shown such generosity! 

Since it may be several months now until we even know if Oscar will need a surgical fix, we are closing the campaign, and refunding your donations. 

If, indeed we decide to move forward with surgery in the future, the lower cost of the treatment now, (down to $2500) is something that I will be able to shoulder on a line of credit. 

I cannot tell you how grateful Oscar and I are for the support. It really looked like it could be the end for this little guy, and you responded so generously. Thank you. 

If you are in the LA area and still want to help, Oscar needs a home for two weeks while I travel to New York with my play! I need a responsible kitty-lovin' friend who feels able to administer his drops and treatments while I'm away so that he stays in good shape and continues to improve. He's a friendly little meowzer and a lovely houseguest! Please facebook or email me if you wanna help - I'm definitely in need!!

I am so thrilled to get to share this great news with you all! Oscar and I will post lots of vids and pics in the future, so we can all appreciate what we did to save his smashy little face.

Thank you again for your shares, your donations, and your positive thoughts! We couldn't have done it without you!
