This is Mr. Bo Jingles–but you can call him Jingles for short. He's an 11-year-old gray tabby who is his mom’s, “baby who is always there when she needs him.”
Jingles is a fairly large cat, so when he stopped eating, his mom became worried. When he stopped eating kitty treats his mom knew something serious was wrong. She brought him to the vet where it was found that Jingles was in liver failure and would need to be hospitalized right away.
Just like in humans, the liver in your feline friend is responsible for a variety of important functions that keep your pet alive. According to Blue Pearl Pet Hospital, because the liver is involved in many crucial functions, a cat with liver disease may show a wide variety of symptoms. These may include:
If liver failure is not treated promptly, it can result in death.
Jingles' mom receives social security and had no idea how she could pay for her best friend to be hospitalized due to the liver failure, so she applied with Fur Kids Foundation for help.
Jingles spent a few days in the kitty hospital, is on a new diet and new medication, but his numbers have improved. His mom is going to start him on a diet, and is hoping she can continue to have his elevated liver numbers drop so her best friend can be happy and healthy for a long time to come.
No matter what is happening with your fur kid, at any stage of life, Fur Kids Foundation encourages you to call your veterinarian sooner rather than later.
