Special Needs Spotlight – Sebastian, Journey, and Fluke Wheezy

Dear Friends, We’re reaching out with some heartfelt stories from our community at Lil BUB’s Big Fund, highlighting the ongoing struggles of three special felines: Sebastian, Journey, and Fluke Wheezy. Your support through sharing their stories and following our mission plays a vital role in our efforts. Sebastian’s Fight for Recovery Last June, Sebastian was found with a harness so deeply embedded that it covered half his chest and armpit. Despite numerous treatments—from steroids to laser therapy—his wounds repeatedly reopen, leading to infections. Recently, our vet recommended amputation as a necessary step to remove necrotic tissue and help him finally heal. This surgery is complex and finding a vet willing to undertake it has been challenging. Journey’s Battle Against Multiple Conditions Journey, abandoned at an apartment complex, has faced a rough path. Initially struggling with an autoimmune disease affecting her GI tract and ears, she was briefly stable on steroids until diagnosed with diabetes, which meant stopping the steroids that kept her comfortable. Now, we are trying a non-steroid treatment hoping it can manage her symptoms without worsening her diabetes. Time is critical for her. Fluke Wheezy’s Long Road to Recovery Fluke Wheezy was rescued from a riverside, battling a rare lung parasite from ingesting crayfish or crab. After extensive treatments, including oxygen therapy and antiparasitics, her condition is stabilizing, but her care costs have reached about $3,500, and her lungs still need time to heal fully.
