Hello Our Hero,
My family and I adopted these two when they where only 12 weeks old. We only wanted one at the time. The animal hospital said that they had twin black cats and didn't want to split them because they were Loving Brothers, they cared so much for one another. We decided to take them both, Cubby and Bear. In October 2014 we noticed that Bear was acting very wierd and had lost the color in his gums, they were white. We took him into the vet and he was diagnosed with IMHA or Immune-mediated Hemolytic-Anemia. Basically this means his own immune system attacks and destroys his red blood cells. (I'll attach links for more info) Since his diagnosis there have been ups and downs, until recently. He was declining. We took him to a 24hr animal hospital and his blood levels were severely low to where he needed to have a blood transfusion and stay until he is stabilized. That vet bill alone is almost $3000. I need help with this and for future treatments and medications. I already raised all my credit limits and applied for other credit cards. Please help The Loving Brothers Fund for Bear so he can have the best shot at a normal life, for him and his brother. We are not ready to put him down, this can be maintained once he's stabilizes. God bless and Thank you in advance.
