The Story

Greyson was found recently by a kind lady attending to her colony of cats.  He was scared, had head wounds and very labored breathing.  Poor kitty went right in the carrier to be whisked away and helped.  The emergency vet saw Greyson and did ex-rays to determine if there was a mass or blockage in his lungs.  Nothing was found.  He was given a Convenia antibiotic shot.  They suspected nasal polyps and  recommended a CT scan.  We had the CT scan done and it revealed no polyps but did show a very abnormal megaesophagus.  Greyson is believed to be around 9 years old and is intact. The esophagus is severely distended.  A nonspecific neuropathy or genetics could be cause of megaesophagus and gastric distention.  Greyson has tested negative for leukemia/aids. The stomach was intubated and successfully removed a lot of gas from his distended tummy.  He spent two nights in an oxygen tent to assist his breathing.  Its also possible he has upper airway disease.  He is back home and on a few medications to see if they will help him.  We are awaiting the detailed pdf from the ct scan.  Thanks for any help you can give towards helping pay for these large, unanticipated expenses to help Greyson.  Greyson is very adoptable.  He is very easy going, affectionate, handsome, clean kitty.  We want to provide Greyson with a loving foster home, the best medical care and a opportunity to be adopted.

Greyson is recovering from long neglect.  The wounds on his head are healing and he will be neutered this week. He is very thin, but eating well.  His breathing continues to sound labored and loud.  He has very low energy and the look in his eyes is sad.  The snorting as he breathes is a chronic condition.  We are pleased to rule out lots of bad diseases/conditions with the bloodwork done.  Greyson is such a friendly, sweet and calm boy.  We will continue to monitor his condition, provide wonderful care and hope to see an upturn in his condition soon.  Thanks for your support to help Greyson!  Please share this fundraiser if you can as we still need to meet our goal.  THANK YOU!!!
