When we rescued Noah he was dealing with a mild heart murmur. For several months this heart murmur raised very little concern to us or the vets and hadn’t impacted Noah’s quality of life in anyway. After spending some time in a new home we noticed how out of breath he would become after playtime with the other kitties so of course we took him for a check up. After having an x-ray, an echo and a blood panel done it became apparent that he is struggling with left sided congestive heart failure caused by aortic stenosis, which is SUPER rare in cats. He is being treated with heart failure medication and has been scheduled for a consultation with a specialty center here, LVSSC, where we will hopefully get a lot more information on both severity of his condition and what we can do for him. Aside from losing breath periodically his quality of life has not diminished, he is the same silly little pestering kitten he’s always been, and we are determined to make sure he stays this way for as long as he can. This was heartbreaking news we’ve been navigating this weekend and we really need the community to come together for this little dude. His consultation alone will be $150 and we can’t even imagine what further medical bills might entail. If you can help us out with a jumpstart in fundraising anything and everything is appreciated!
