post-7-0-08171500-1396731075_thumb.jpg

Snoball is a 16 year old beautiful white kitty who has a tumor on her leg, the vet believes it is cancerous and feels that Snoball should have her leg amputated ASAP. Snoball is healthy and the vet does not believe that the cancer has metastasized so the sooner we can get her into surgery the better.

From Snoball's Mom:

I have had Snoball since she was a kitten. I have never been in a situation where I could not pay for my vet bills-please help me save her.

Snoball's mom also posted an introduction here:

Thank you Angels for your donations so far, and thank you for the Matching Challenge! Okay, we have a lot of work to do.

Can you please help this beautiful senior kitty?

Thank you Jamie for posting the fund update and a HUGE thank you to those who have donated so far!!! I'm sure Snoball's Mom will be here soon, I believe she is using a friend's computer so she may not be able to post as frequently as she would like.

What I do know is that she adores Snoball and wants very much to get her the surgery as soon as possible. She has been working very hard to get the funds together to get her in for surgery.

Hi Linda! Snoball sounds like a real sweetheart, can you tell us where she came from, how she became yours? I think I know how you came up with her name :lol: .

Also, can you tell us on which leg does she have the tumor? Just had someone ask if it was possibly a VAS (Vaccine associated Sarcoma), which would be her right rear leg if that may be the case.

My daughter has always been one to bring home strays and we never said no of course....she adopted 2 outside strays and the mama had 3 kittens....I kept all 3 of them, spayed and neutered them and they all became inside sweethearts! (with our already adopted dogs and horses) Snoball and her sister we swear were twins....you could not tell them apart! So they were both "Snoball" with different nick names. Through my very unpleasant divorce I was literally left with one dog (already gone) and my sweet Snoball, through the actions of my ex- we lost EVERYTHING else. She is all I have left. She's been with me for 16 years through it all, my loving sweet girl. I can't bare to lose her.

The tumor is on the right front leg (you can kind of see it in the picture...nothing in the rest of the xrays, and it has not metastasized...other than this she is in perfect health and I hope to have her for a long time to come.

Thank you to all of you for the help, I greatly appreciate it.

THE WILLIE MCBRIDE CLAN OFFERS A $200 MATCHING CHALLENGE FOR SNOBALL.

Loosing a front leg is going to be a little tougher on a pretty little girl like Snoball (when it comes to litter box), but her mom will make it all okay. Let's beat that Thursday deadline. Please help.

A $200 matching challenge yay!!! Thank you so much!!

This mornings update: the tumor has definitely grown over the weekend....she can no longer step down on that front paw....she holds it completely up. The x-rays showed the tumor was separating the bone....I hope she's not in pain...She's starting to look distraught. Still eating and drinking ok and purring away though....

Please send in now during this amazing matching challenge so I can get her in as soon as possible.

My daughter has posted to FB and messaged a lot of her friends too. Please post everywhere if you are unable to donate.

Again, thank you so much for all your help.....she is so precious to me...

Thank you Judy G. and all of you for your help!

Update on Snoball this afternoon....she seems to be having trouble getting up to eat or drink....had to move the bowls right beside her to make it easier. But she's lounging on the bed now purring away anyway...

I am so amazed at the support I am feeling here at IMOM....thank you all so much...

I am going to call the vet in the morning and reserve her appointment for Thursday....I have complete faith that there are more angels out there who will help me with my sweet Snoball girl.
