This boy is sweet, sweet Tony and there's not enough good things to say about him. He's such a fighter. It's been more than a year since his diagnosis with Acromegaly and he's still going strong!

Acromegaly causes the body to produce excessive amounts of growth hormone. This can lead to a number of life-threatening complications, including heart disease (which Tony has now, also). In addition, the excess growth hormone interferes with the body's ability to utilize insulin and often leads to uncontrollable diabetes.

You can read more about him and the other special cats at the sanctuary here.
