About the Campaign

Xena was stray, roaming around outside, with a swollen head, when Amber found her and took her in this August. 

Why she was injured is not known, but her head was badly swollen and it turned out her eye was also. Amber got all of that treated and she is better now. However, in late October she started walking kind of funny. And then she had trouble doing the normal kind of jumps a little kitten would do.

Another visit to the vet, and some x-rays: Xena has a spinal issue, probably IVDD (read about it HERE), where the nerve in her lower spin is pinching and not getting a full signal through. Often in these cases the cat is fully paralyzed in rear, but Xena can walk! If you watch the video about you will see she can get around. So, the doctor thinks she may have a chance of recovery or at least substantial improvement.

The problem is that x-rays cannot show enough information and the detail of the soft tissue that the doctor needs to make a proper diagnosis and come up with a plan for Xena, she needs a CT-Scan.

Xena looking much better now!

Amber has maxed out her Care-Credit account with the treatments for Xena (and other cats she rescues), so Xena needs our help to get that CT done! All donations are just for Xena. You donate here, and that donation is held and then paid to Xena’s veterinarian when they do the procedure for here, directly to the vet. Let’s get this sweet little kitten on a good path for the New Year, with a proper diagnosis and plan for the future!
