August 8, 2018 update: Nonni made it through surgery yesterday and spent all evening resting. This morning, her foster mom says “Our sweet one-eyed Non was all purrs this morning. She purred and snuggled with me when I gave her breakfast.”
August 7, 2018 – PM update:
August 7, 2018 – Original post – Nonni is well known at the SPCA of Wake County. She’s been waiting for a home since we took her in from the Wake County Animal Center February 3, 2017.
She was adopted once, but returned the next day. She has spent many months as the “office cat” of our Director of Adoptions where she enjoys having an entire throne room to herself.
Nonni has been having issues with one of her eyes for most of the time she has been in our care. She has been to multiple vet clinics and tried several treatments, but her eye just wouldn’t clear up.
Our Director of Adoptions had a gut feeling that something just wasn’t right and took Nonni to a vet who specializes in animal eye care and health (yes, there really is such a thing).
A few weeks ago, we learned Nonni had cancer. She went in this morning to the specialist to have her eye removed as that is the best way to remove the cancer. Here are videos of her adventure and Nonni-tude as she prepared for her surgery this morning. We will post updates here and on our Facebook page and Instagram page as we hear how her surgery went.
Nonni’s surgery is estimated to cost about $1000. You can help by making a gift online to help us care for Nonni and animals like her.
