Help my cat with lymphoma and kidney issues caused by chemotherapy

Update posted by Joey L On May 17, 2019

Tabby Korkor is not doing very well today. He’s drooling excessively and very lethargic. His body temperature is low (36.6°C-36.8°C). Vet says normal temperature should be 37.5°C. Also, just now, I realised his paw pads are quite cold and he was breathing quite heavily.

I brought him to the vet clinic where we seeked a second opinion previously today cause his usual vet clinic is closed for 3 days. I had wanted to remove the IV catheter he was discharged with yesterday cause I realised that it’s causing him discomfort. It is a good thing that I did, cause upon removing it, they found a big bruise!


At around noon today, I syringe fed Tabby Korkor a renal pouch and he vomited them out at around 4pm. The vet we saw today just says to continue with his anti-nausea injectables.

I had also syringe fed him just now at around 8pm, and he vomited the food out again at around 11:15pm. I’m getting very worried that his GI tract somehow is not digesting.

I plan on giving him the Royal Canin renal liquid in a while. I need to get some calories into him!

Dear all

Thank you so much for the very generous donations! I’ll post all the offline donations with names mosaic-ed out (not sure you [our very generous donors] wanna be made known so I’ll just keep all mosaic-ed!) in the next few update posts. I’ll also do an update post with all the invoices and receipts posted for easy viewing (I still haven’t received the email for the invoices for his latest hospitalisation and the vet clinic is closed until Monday.) I’m trying to keep all invoices as transparent as possible.

We should be at least covered for the review on Monday and if he’s fit enough, the next dose of chemotherapy on Thursday. I was so worried about payment for the two trips cause paying up the outstanding of his hospitalisation yesterday was really the last of what I have.

Bought the two drugs required for chemotherapy once again from the National Cancer Centre yesterday and Tabby Korkor had the first dose today at around 6pm+. From previous experience, his lymphoma bump progresses fast, that’s why we quickly proceeded with chemotherapy once again. They did the FBC and Chem test before chemotherapy to get a baseline. Chem test isn’t looking too good, no improvement despite being on IV fluids. The creatinine value is always hovering at around 1000 and urea value is creeping up. I have posted most of the invoices. We have to discharge Tabby Korkor tomorrow evening cause the vet clinic will be closed for 3 days from 17 May 2019 to 19 May 2019.

We lost our kitty Zekiye to Lymphoma/Thymoma, which we couldn't manage to diagnose, we know what is it to lose a cat. Wish your boy a speedy recovery and strength to recover.
