Peachy The 9/11 Kitty

Organized by: Dee Ceased

Peachy is a 15 year old cat. He has been with me through 9/11 and has been my constant companion as I developed 9/11 related illnesses as a first responder. When a tree went through my window during the Queens tornado, Peachy was there. When Hurricane Sandy happened, Peachy was there. Yes, Peachy has been there through all the horrors that has happened in my life to keep me calm and dry my tears.

Peachy, like all 9/11 survivors has started to develop illnesses. He has stopped being able to have bowel movements. Despite x-rays, medication, enemas, ultra sounds... we can not figure out why. Peachy received 2x a day Laxatone, Lactulose, Milrilax, Konsyl, Pumpkin and Sub Q Fluids. There is no explanation why he can't go to the bathroom with the amount of laxatives he is on. My vet who is the best in the world can't figure out a reason and he wants to send me to a specialist.

Peachy is 15. I get that. He has had a wonderful life. I get that too. However, Peachy is not ready to give up yet. He still is bright eyed and enjoys life. I am his mother. It is my responsibility to do everything I can to get my child better. Peachy isn't just a cat. He is my child.

I have already spent thousands on Peach. I have no more money and am at the point that I am giving up my own medication to help the Peach.

My vet wants to send Peachy to Blue Pearl Emergency Clinic in New York. One of the best diagnostic clinics around for a MRI, colonoscopy and who else knows. I don't have the money for it. However, my vet thinks that Peachy still has some years left in him and we need to figure out why he can't go to the bathroom.

I am not too proud to beg for my baby. I have a major vet bill coming up, which will be several thousand dollars. I need help. Peach is my entire world and I will fight to the end for him.

Peach survived 9/11. He didn't ask to be put in this situation, but like all Americans in New York he was. Please help and don't make my lack of funds be the end of him.
