Say Hello to Mia
This adorable, 9 year old, mustached, little feline loves to cuddle, play, and hang out with her furry pals Junior and Webster. Unfortunately, Mia hasn’t been feeling very well. Mia is losing weight FAST! Every time our animals begin rapidly losing weight we can be sure of two things: Something’s wrong and whatever it is, it’s dangerous! As soon as she noticed the change, Mia’s owner Brenda took her to the vet.
Mia has undergone quite a few exams to determine the root of her weight loss but everything is coming back clean. Blood work and 2 fecal exams ruled out parasites, organ failure, diabetes, and thyroid issues. Brenda feeds Mia all day long but Mia just isn’t putting on any weight. Whatever issue she’s having has to be deeper. So, the next step for Mia is an ultrasound. The vet wants to see if there are any masses or tumors in her abdominals causing the weight loss.
Brenda and Mia came together about 8 years ago. Brenda had finally moved into a home that allowed indoor cats and she couldn’t wait to have a new furry companion. Mia was a rescue found in a colony of stray cats. Mia was pregnant and once having all her kittens adopted out, she was just waiting for someone to adopt her. Mia didn’t take to many people right away. However, she took to Brenda in a heart beat and found her forever home.
Mia's Weight History: 05/20/2011 – 10.70 lbs 06/04/2016 – 10.69 lbs 10/05/2017 – 8.75 lbs 10/21/2017 – 8.94 lbs 05/31/2018 – 6.94 lbs 06/25/2018 – 6.81 lbs 07/27/2018 – 6.56 lbs
Mia was on medication that at first, didn’t do much to help. The only way to accurately treat Mia is to obtain a proper diagnosis with this ultrasound. Unfortunately, Brenda has exhausted all her financial resources with Mia’s previous testing. She’s hoping to get assistance for Mia’s ultrasound and any further medical treatment. This is a two part fundraiser! We’re asking for your help in getting Mia the thorough diagnosis she needs and to stay tuned into her campaign for the treatment.
