About the Campaign
Lil Bit is an adorable, 8 year old, little feline that has a tumor creating a blockage in her tummy. In order for this sweet kitty to live, the tumor needs to be removed asap! We don’t know how it got there, but this sneaky tumor managed to go unseen by the veterinarian. At Lil Bit’s last vet exam, her owner, Cinthya pointed out that Lil Bit’s tummy was looking a little bloated. Upon further examination, it was determined that there was indeed a blockage and it would need to be removed as soon as possible.
Blockages in the stomach can cause a numerous amount of health issues. Primary symptoms that may appear include vomiting, anorexia, weakness, diarrhea, and weight loss. Bottom line, Intestinal Obstructions can be life threatening! So, for Lil Bit we want to get a jump on it as soon as possible.
This fiesty feline has seen her fair share of illness. So, we know she’s a strong fighter. Last November, she was hospitalized and diagnosed with fatty liver disease and pancreatitis and IBD. This amazing little kitty cat pulled through and with your help, she can pull through this too! Currently, Lil Bit is on medication and probiotics for her digestion and liver. For a while, Lil Bit seemed to have been doing better. But, when she began loosing weight and her stomach started bloating it felt a if though this tumor developed out of nowhere. Since her hospitalization, Cinthya has been doing everything in her power to make sure Lil Bit gets better. “It has been hard, but I have faith that things can turn around” Cinthya says. “She is a fighter and so am I”. The next step for Lil bit is an ultra sound to confirm the blockage. Cinthya is getting the funding together to do this ASAP and we wan to do all we can to get Lil Bit to surgery!
Lil Bit and Cinthya came together almost 6 years ago. Lil Bit was on her way to the pound when Cinthya stepped in and took this cutie into her home. There was no way Cinthya was letting her end up in the pound when she could provide Lil Bit with a secure home. They’ve been inseparable ever since. “She came into my life at the perfect time” Cinthya says “I was going through a rough time and she was there for me through it all; We saved each other”. Cinthya and Lil Bit have an unbreakable bond. Lil Bit means everything to Cinthya and she’ll do whatever she can to save her best friend.
Unfortunately, Cinthya doesn’t have the funding to pay for surgery at this time. With all of Lil Bit’s past and current medical treatment, it’s hard to come up with the addition. Around the same time Lil Bit became ill, Cinthya was dealing with injuries of her own. She was out of work for some time. Finances became scrambled, credit cards became the main way to cover medical costs, and Cinthya’s still trying to catch up with it all. “It’s been tough. I just need a miracle at this point”. Lil Bit needs this miracle. So, please help us make this miracle happen.
