All About Me
My brother Boo and I both came from the same home. Our parents, as they got older, decided that the best way to care for me would be to send boo and I to Four Hoof Acres Senior Home. You may have noticed in my first photo that my eye looks pretty gross. As it turns out I have cancer in my eye. I need constant medication for and in my eye. Sometimes it can look pretty clear. Right now the vets are monitoring and don't know if I will keep on these medications or if I will need to have my eye removed. I also have something wrong with my back teeth that prevented me from eating grass hay for some reason, no one knows why. I am eating alfalfa now as well as a special senior feed and I can eat both of those no problem! (5/15/22)
Its been about three weeks since my last update and I am doing much better! I have put on some weight and my eye is feeling better as well! Boo and I are settling in nicely here but would always welcome more visitors! To see how check out the Get Involved page! (6/4/22)
A month since my last update and I have finally put on a decent amount of weight and I am looking pretty good, if I do say so myself. You may notice some spots where it looks like I am losing my fur but have no fear those are just my markings; I have white spots! We still don't know what is going to happen with my eye, whether I will keep it or have to have it removed. My medication is pretty expensive though so if you want to help me you can check out the Get Involved page to see how to donate, any amount would really help, this medication is incredibly important in making sure my eye doesn't deteriorate or hurt me.
