This is Nick, one of HART’s (Homeless Animal Rescue Team in Cambria, CA) newest additions. He has a structural defects of his chest called Pectus Excavatum (or PE for short) yes, I know it sounds Harry Potterish. This condition is characterized by the breast bone or sternum turning upward towards his spine & his rib cage is flattened on the bottom instead of rounded. Both of these deformities compromise his breathing & heart function & make him vulnerable to respiratory infections, collapsed lung or injury to his heart. Nick is an energetic little boy but he can't play vigorously with other kittens or cats because he could be injured by a kick to his chest. The good news, in Nick's case, is that it is correctable but the bad news it is a costly procedure that is beyond HART's normal funding resources. Your donation large or small will help us reach our goal so this sweet boy can enjoy a full, active and happy life. Any excess funds raised & not used for Nick's surgery or recovery will go to HART's Guardian Angel Fund.

Latest Update

Hi All thought I'd better send out an update on Nick. He continues to grow & is always full of mischief. Last Wednesday he was neutered & 8 week post procedure x rays were taken. unfortunately he breast bone is returning to its original position & Dr Marsolais will be reapplying the external chest splint. So tomorrow we head back up to Monterey for his surgery Tuesday morning. Will update you when we get back home on Wednesday.

2 weeks ago rechk x rays were taken & reviewed by Dr Marsolais. He was pleased with what he saw & said the splint could come off so last Tuesday it came off & he is growing like a weed. I think he has quadrupled in size since he first arrived at HART. I've been trying to get a picture of him (full body shot) but he won't sit still long enough so this picture of him napping will have to do for now. Thank you all so much for for giving him the chance to become a normal kitten & for your donations to help him reach that goal.

Huge difference. He’s one lucky little kitty. ❤️

Nick is growing & has almost caught up with his sister in weight but is now bigger in size than her. When he first came to HART he was 1/2 her size. He is making up for lost time & is looking more like a cat than a kitten.

Nick came home yesterday & is doing well & still adjusting to his new sweater vest which he will be wearing for about 4 weeks with weekly bandage changes & rechk x rays in 2 weeks. He wants to play so is not happy about the restricted activity & cage rest.

Awwwwwww—Such a brave little guy!

11-13-18 - Nick had his surgery this morning to correct his Pectus Excavatum. Dr Marsolais said the surgery went well with no major complications. During recovery, Nick was not expanding his lungs properly because of pain so they added O2 & pain meds. when I spoke with Dr Marsolais late this afternoon Nick was doing better & they were gradually decreasing his O2. Will be monitoring him thru the night. So unless I hear from them during the night I will be calling early tomorrow morning for an update on his condition & pick up time. So everyone think positive thoughts. will update tomorrow.
