Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Gorgeous Greg came into our care at Exeter Axhayes AC as a stray with no history and no definite age. Greg was in such a terrible condition when he first came in, he was aged as a senior cat with flu medications prescribed. Over time it became apparent that he was suffering from more than just a simple cold. Off his food and looking very sad he was taken into a foster home to bring him back to the energetic, lovable cat we knew he could be.

4 months on and several tests later we were still no closer to a diagnosis for Greg so the decision was made to make the journey to a specialist vet in Bristol for an ultrasound scan. Finally we have a diagnosis - Greg has a portosystemic shunt meaning the liver is not working to it's full capacity and can have detrimental effects on his body and brain. This is a life threatening condition, that without intervention would cause poor Greg to have short unhappy life.

The good news is, this can be repaired by performing an ameroid constricter surgery to redirect the blood to get the liver working efficiently. Of course it is not without risks and expense (£2,500) but we are hopeful that being in excellent body condition Gorgeous Greg will bounce right back.

We need your help to pay for Greg's surgery so please donate to help us reach our target. If we are fortunate to raise over & above our £2,500 target, all surplus donations will go towards treating other cats and kittens in our care at Axhayes.
