You remember that I told you about my good furiend Lincoln’s brofur Monet, who has a very rare condition called cutaneous mastocytosis. The condition causes him to get small bumps all over his body. And while these bumps are not painful — from what my human tells me they are similar to the bumps you would get if a substance you were allergic to was put on your skin — they will, if not treated, affect how long he lives.
Well, this four month old kitten got a pep talk from Lincoln before heading off to his first chemotherapy treatment. And the brave kitten headed over to the place with the humans in white coats without fussing, ready for whatever was coming. As a diabetic cat, I know how much I hate needles and ear sticks. That is nothing compared to what Monet must endure!
But Monet took his treatment like the tough and brave kitten that he is. How well behaved was Monet? Normally, cats receiving chemotherapy must be sedated. Not Monet. He took his treatment like a champion, and he sat still enough that sedation was not needed. What a brave and tough little kitten!
When he got home, as soon as his human let him out of his crate, Monet took off and went for some noms. Nausea is a common side effect of chemotherapy, but Monet didn’t experience any. And after eating his noms, he was running around the house, playing with his brofur Winston.
Monet’s next treatment is scheduled for next week. Let’s hope that he takes to the next one as well as he did his first!
As you can imagine, the costs of Monet’s treatment make those of a diabetic cat look cheap. So in order to help his brofur, Lincoln is holding an auction to get some of those green paper things that you humans give each other. There are some very interesting things that are being auctioned off including two pawtings from Lincoln!
If you don’t want to bid on an auction item but want to help, you can just donate green paper things.
Please share this with others so that more humans can help Monet get the treatment he needs!
