We are saddened to inform Stan fans that he has been admitted to the veterinary hospital with a very serious kidney issue.
His spirits are good and we are hoping for a favourable outcome. We are currently waiting for ultrasound testing to be performed to further assess his situation.
We will keep you informed of his progress as we learn the full extent of his trouble.
Jan 17, 9:45 pm UPDATE: Tuxedo Stan’s ultrasound showed that he has a large mass invading his left kidney – probably a tumor. He will need to have the kidney removed ASAP. The good news is that his right kidney looks OK and there was no indication of metastasis to other organs. Cats, like humans, can live a normal life with just one kidney. Let’s hope that will be the case with Stan. He still has lots of work left to do. Stan (and his humans) would like to say THANK YOU to everyone for your support and well wishes. We will post regular updates to keep you informed of his progress. He’s been paroled from the vet hospital overnight so he can sleep in his own bed while we arrange his operation.
