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...
Three Month Anniversary of Hospitalization

Three Month Anniversary of Hospitalization

Exactly three months ago today I nearly died after heart failure. Many say it was a miracle I lived. But I am  a miracle-maker, so I am not surprised. At the time of my hospitalization, which began on August 18, 2014, I was given a diagnosis of 4-12 months to live. I aced my one month checkup in September and plan on living beyond my diagnosis. After all, I am KAHN the Cat. I need to be here to lead my followers to a great victory as I rule the world. Naturally, you are wondering what I did to celebrate my three month anniversary. The answer is that I slept 17 hours instead of my usual 14 hours. It was one nice nap! Here’s a picture: Now it is important to know why I nap. My naps give me the energy needed to take more naps in order to prepare to rule the world . Becoming a world leader is a very strenuous and active task. I am only four years old. Dying at the age of five is not an option for me. But I know I have put a lot of financial strain on my handlers because of the vet bills, daily medications, and desire to make me comfortable. That is why I wrote the Yes We Kahn book – to help out. Check out the book or, if you want to donate to my medical bills, click the Donate button to the right.   Keep in mind that my handlers are human. I try not to hold it against them. But because of their defect, I am the one that has to do all the hard work… after my naps, of...

My Handlers Finally Get a Clue

Since I’ve returned from the hospital, my handlers have been hiding some of my medication in my wet food. They act like I don’t know. Most assuredly, I do know. What they DON’T know is that I am more than willing to take this medicine in wet food, but I’d like my meal served in a more refined, cultured way. They accord such luxury to themselves everyday. What am I talking about? I’m talking about a plate, darn it! They finally relented and gave me the dignity I have...

“Yes We Kahn” Release Coming Soon

My new book is nearly complete. It is about me and my near death experience. Despite what my handlers may have told you, the idea to write a book to help with my medical bills was MY IDEA!  Do you think those soft-hearted, weak-minded humans could have come up with the concept themselves? Of course not. I “assisted” them in finding a possible solution to their financial problems. It is in my best interest to do so, since I am unfortunately dependent on them at this point in my life. I’ve “persuaded” them to write the book from my perspective, but they think that this was totally their own brilliant concept. Little do they know how easily I control them. I know the world needs me to lead. Soon my greatness will be revealed to all. Watch this site for more information on how to order the book and to spread the word about...
Picture of Kahn One Week After Hospitalization

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...
