Marmalade, the orange half of the super cute cat duo “Cole and Marmalade,” was diagnosed with intestinal cancer last year when he was only one year old. After some X-rays, a mass in his intestines was shown and after removing it, the doctor discovered it was cancerous. And not only that, he also tested positive for FIV (feline immunodeficiency disorder).
His humans Chris and Jess started a campaign so Marm’s fans could help them pay for his treatment — which was over $12,000. They asked for donations and they sold calendars and T-shirts and at the end, they managed to collect all the money needed for his chemotherapy and meds.
Today we’re happy to report he’s ok… Marmalade beat the cancer!
A couple of weeks ago he turned two years old and as a celebration, Chris and Jess threw him the most amazing birthday party ever. Everything a cat could wish for was there— boxes, catnip, toilet paper, trash can, his favorite bag, the office chair he loves so much, a very special blanket, Cat TV on the background and a fish shaped birthday cake!
You won’t believe it when you see it!
