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...

Kahn the Cat Hospitalized

On August 18, 2014, Kahn the Cat was taken to the vet respiratory distress. He was lethargic and making a strange gurgling sound we had never heard before. The Prognosis was Devastating The first sign that things weren’t OK was that Kahn allowed the vets to “handle” him. Anyone who knows Kahn understands that he hates vets with a passion, most likely because of being poked and prodded when he was a kitten. But the news only got worse. X-rays showed that Kahn had a mass fluid buildup in his lungs, causing the labored breathing. The x-rays also showed an enlarged heart that could be many things, none of them good. Kahn’s condition quickly deteriorated and he was put in an oxygen tank. The vet prepared us for the likelihood that he wouldn’t survive the afternoon. At 2:15pm on August 18, the vet informed us that Kahn was still not responding to treatment  and she was going to give him a steroid shot as a last ditch “Hail Mary.” We went to visit Kahn. Watching him struggle to breathe was devastating.  Euthanization or Suffocation At 3:15pm we were told that his situation was still dire. We had two options. Option 1: Euthanize Kahn. Option 2: Drive Kahn to the advanced veterinary facilities at Oregon State University (Lois Bates Acheson Veterinary Teaching Hospital), locate about an hour away.  The vet was not optimistic that Kahn would survive the trip. We had 15 minutes to make our ultimate decision because Kahn would have to be at the OSU veterinary hospital by 4:30. It was 3:15. At first, we considered the heart-wrenching decision to euthanize Kahn. , He was in obvious distress...
My Kahn the Kitten Disguise

My Kahn the Kitten Disguise

As you know from my previous post and Twitter posts, my ultimate goal is to rule the World. After all, that’s only the rightful place for a cat like me, right? In order to rule the World, though, it is important that I have a persona.  As you can see, I’m already well beyond my kitty years by using words like “persona,” which basically means I need to put on a “front” or “disguise” so that people don’t know my true intentions. Anyway, the persona I’ve developed is that of being a cute cuddly kitten. Yes, Kahn the Kitten if you will (I hate that name, but my owners think it’s “cute”… yuck). Anyway, I’ve been working on some poses for my persona. I want to look cute and harmless even though I’m really mean and powerful… like BP Oil . So here’s the fake identity I’ve been working on as “Kahn the Kitten.” What do you...
I am Kahn the Cat!

I am Kahn the Cat!

I am Kahn the Cat, soon to be Kahn the Conquerer, and I want to welcome you to my little island on the Internet. As of this post, I am nine weeks old. But don’t let my age fool you. I already have amassed a lot of experience to fulfill my ultimate destiny – to rule the World. Kahn you imagine that? I Kahn. This Conquerer journal is to track my progress on the road to achieving ultimate greatness. I will rule one animal at a time, one owner at a time, one room at a time, one house at a time, one city at a time, one state at a time, one country at a time, and… hmmmmmm… I don’t know what comes after that. Perhaps the galaxy? Someone will need to make me a space suit first… and a Cat Nip… I mean Cat Ship. I hope you enjoy my adventures as much as I will. After my initial quests have been achieved, I will graduate from being Kahn the Cat to Kahn the Conquerer. I skipped over the Kahn the Kitty stage as the name was wimpy. I’m all about power – the Power of the Paw and Power of the Claw . I’m a cat with attitude – Catittude if you please. And if you don’t please, too bad. I’m independent, powerful, and know how to use my Cattitude to get what I want. And if you don’t believe me, just follow my posts. Be sure to follow me on Twitter too as I update my conquests there frequently. Time to make...
