Kahn the Cat has Died

Kahn the Cat has Died

It is with deep sadness and a heavy heart that I must announce the death of Kahn the Cat. Kahn died from a blood clot early this morning, just four days away from his one-year hospitalization anniversary. He almost died on August 18, 2014, but the amazing people at the Oregon State University Veterinary Hospital saved his life. He was diagnosed with congestive heart failure at the time and given 4-12 months to live. Kahn passed away on August 14, 2015 at 3:30am. Kahn had many projects in the works at the time of his death and those projects will be completed. Stay tuned for more...

Video – Can Kahn the Cat Save Halloween?

This video we created features our Kahn the Cat in a short Halloween story. It all started on a dark and stormy night. Creatures, ghosts, and scary pumpkins were keeping trick or treaters away. Especially scary was the house that was haunted by a vampire looking for a treat of his own. Can Kahn the Cat save the day or will be become the vampire’s next...

Picture of Kahn One Week After Hospitalization

One week ago our world came crashing down when Kahn was unexpectedly hospitalized with an enlarged heart and fluid in his lungs. He spent nearly 48 hours in ICU at the veterinary hospital of Oregon State University. (We have nothing but great things to say about the staff and facility there.) We had originally considered euthanizing Kahn when wasn’t responding to initial treatments. He wasn’t given much time to live. The only possible solution was a trip to OSU’s vet hospital, a miracle trip that Kahn survived. Now it is one week since the incident. Kahn is almost as good as new. He’s on four different medications. He has had some changes in behavior. He meows a lot more and he is actually a bit more adventurous. Bottom line: He is alive! He appears to be determined to outlive his 4-12 month prognosis, and our goal is to help him. We wanted to share a new picture of Kahn. He’s been out of the hospital and back home for just over four days. This picture was taken today. Kahn loves Amazon.com. He thinks they send the boxes just for him and when one arrives, he makes himself right at home inside of it....
Yard Sale Raises $275 for Kahn the Cat

Yard Sale Raises $275 for Kahn the Cat

On August 18, Kahn the Cat was hospitalized in ICU for two-days after suffering acute heart failure. Using 8 of His 9 Lives Kahn almost died. But the excellent care he received at Oregon State University (College of Veterinary Medicine: Lois Bates Acheson Veterinary Teaching Hospital), along with his determination to live, determined spirit, kept him alive. In just a few days he had surely used 8 of his “9 lives.” On Saturday, August 23, we held a yard sale to help pay for Kahn’s ever-growing medical bills. The yard sale was quickly put together so there was little time to promote it outside of Craigslist and about 24 “Help Save Our Cat” signs hanging throughout several neighborhoods. The yard sale consisted of a bunch of our stuff and a “donation table” that told the story of Kahn with a donation box (see picture below). We included pictures of Kahn and even QR codes that people could scan to visit this site and see his “Ninja Kitty” video from when he was a kitten. By the time the yard sale was over, we had raised: $246.20 from sales $29.79 from donations While not a lot, every bit helps. We are so grateful for those that participated by purchasing or donating. This is part of a plan we created to try help pay for Kahn’s past, current, and future medical bills. We want to first pay back the money we had to borrow from others that allowed Kahn this second chance at life. Kahn’s First Book Is Coming Our next step is releasing a book about Kahn. It will be a short 28-30 page picture book...
Kahn Book Coming in a Week for Vet Bills

Kahn Book Coming in a Week for Vet Bills

As many of you know, Kahn the Cat suffered a major incident this week and we almost lost him. His lungs filled with fluid because of an enlarged heart. The local vets couldn’t do anything to save him, but said if he could survive a trip to Oregon State University’s Veterinary Hospital that they had specialists who could help. But it was doubtful he would survive the trip so we had to choose: Euthanize or take our chances. We took our chances. The overall costs for this incident will be in the thousands of dollars. Kahn was hospitalized in ICU for nearly 48 hours. He is now on five different medications and given a life expectancy of 4-12 months. But he’s alive and mostly himself and we want to make this time as good for him as possible. In a week, Kahn is releasing a book on Amazon.com to help pay for his medical bills. Please check back here for information on that book. Thanks! Edit: The book is now available on Amazon.com! It is a 28-page picture book with all royalties going to pay for the vet bills of Kahn the Cat and his sister, CoCo...
