Meet Rex, a super-sweet kitten that has had a rough start in life.
He was a perfectly normal baby until he began to have trouble breathing at 3 1/2 months old.
Poor Rex was tentatively diagnosed with asthma.
But, Rex was still having problems breathing, even on the medication!
So, he was re-examined by a different veterinarian, and they discovered a polyp (a noncancerous growth) in his throat.
It turned out that the polyp was making it hard for Rex to breathe correctly.
He underwent a very successful surgery to have the polyp removed, and was treated with antibiotics.
Rex made a funny sound while breathing!
Rex was then examined by Dr. Clark, a surgical specialist.
It was determined that the polyp was completely removed, but Rex is also suffering from a rare birth defect, a cleft soft palate.
Rex needs additional surgery to correct his cleft soft palate. We hope to raise $2,000 and have this surgery performed by Dr. Clark.
This is a life-changing surgery for Rex, it will help him breathe properly again and live his best life.
Any donation, of any size, would be GREATLY appreciated. He is a wonderful kitty and deserves to have every chance at a normal life.
