So here is how we got to Plumfund. On November 17th our 4 year old baby cat, Jinxy began to act funny. She stopped eating and drinking, and became very lethargic, she was taking very shallow breathes as well as losing her balance when trying to get around. Nothing seemed ok, so we gave her a day on the 18th and things still didn't look up so we decided to call the vet to get her in. On november 19th Jinxy made it to the vet and despite trying to optimistic we received some very tough news. Jinxy's little heart and lungs were encased in a liquid, causing the shallow breathes. Her chest was so full the vet actually couldn't find her heart beat. After being told how serious this was we learned we had to let Jinxy be admitted to get more help. As we left the vets office we could only hope Jinxy would fight. A few hours passed and the vet called us to inform us they removed 160 ml of clear liquid from her chest cavity. The clear liquid was a indication of heart disease. After doing this procedure they did locate a heart beat. We learned Jinxy was born with not only heart disease but a heart arrhythmia. They wanted to still keep her overnight to do more x-rays and see if the liquid would return to her chest cavity. Luckily, the next morning (November 20th) we learned that it hadn't come back. This was probably the first good news we'd had during this ordeal. They wanted to put her on two medication to help her heart stay clear of this liquid and stay healthy. Although there is no cure for heart disease or her heart arrhythmia we can do what we can to try and give her the best chance at life possible.

We were recommended to a specialist at the U of I college where they can preform a EKG on Jinx's heart so that we can better assist her and figure out exactly what is wrong with her little heart. We really need to do this as soon as possible so that we can properly medicate her and get her where she needs to be. Our little baby cat is a fighter, we just need your help to get her there. We are trying to raise money currently for her medication as well as her EKG. Thank you so much for taking the time out of your day to read about our furbaby. She means the world to us.

Latest Update

Off to get Jinxy Cat her meds, she is still hangin in there guys. Being the best little baby really. We are so proud of her! I dont know how long her luck will run but were all rooting so hard for her. She still takes meds basically every 6 hours and its a lot of meds but I think the only reason she is even doing so well is because the medecines are doing their job and keeping fluid off her organs, and out of her chest cavity.

This rude dude Alexander Fehr Ashworth is all about harrassing me and telling me to put my cat down, and or shoot her. Hes a sick man, who commented saying he donated $100 when he really didnt. Be aware of crappy individuals like this. Sadly they do exist. Ill be messaging plumfund to remove his comment.

Jinxy Cat is worse than before😔😣 I know youre not gonna get better--but we hope you feel better, at least for a little while Jinx. We got word from U of I that Jinxy's heart condition is terminal and this is pretty severe, the meds wont always have her back and she will begin to get worse at times. They gave her roughly 3 months to live before we would most likely have to say goodbye. We're hoping with the meds can give her a little more life with us. This is absolutely heartbreaking and Ive never felt so useless.. I wish I could save her😔 she now has 6 meds to take daily(which cost a extra $100 every month), she is the bravest kitty I know and Im so proud of her, I just wish we could do more for our baby cat.. I cant even begin to describe how bad i feel for Avie(Jinx's mom), she raised Jinxy this long and never had to say goodbye to her. Theyre literally so codependent. This is gonna throw her in such a depression.

Jinxy is at U of I today(12/17/18) she had to be sedated for her EKG. Sadly the fluid around her heart and lungs is back with a vengeance. They want to remove the fluid and put her on stronger medication to help keep the fluid from returning(we hope). Sadley we're still struggling with cost... if anyone out there can help us work a christmas miracle for our cat. Please please please do. We just want her to have the best chance possible.

First off, thank you to those donating & sharing. We appreciate and love you all so much. Thank you for your support. Jinx is having tons of problems(12/5/18), its only getting worse and we need to desperately get her into U of I to get her the help she needs. Just today she had a episode where she was literally screaming in pain and basically suffocating. I dont know what to do at this point. If anyone can help please do. We need people to keep sharing our fundraiser & if you can please donate, even just $1 helps.
