“Yes We Kahn” is a 28-page photo book that was created to help pay for the emergency medical bills of Kahn the Cat, who had heart failure on August 18, 2014. The goal was to quickly get out a book that could help pay for Kahn’s medical bills.
As cat lovers and owners, our idea was to see if people would be willing to buy a book by Kahn as a “contribution” towards his medical expenses. If the idea works then any money above and beyond Kahn and Coco’s expenses will go to help cat causes we support which help cat owners in need.

From the Back Cover of “Yes We Kahn”
Have you ever known someone who had to make the agonizing decision on whether to euthanize a pet? Perhaps the cost of emergency care was a consideration in the decision?
On August 18, 2014, four-year-old Kahn the Cat was taken to the vet because he made a gurgling sound when he breathed.
From there, everything went downhill fast.
The vet determined that Kahn’s lungs were filled with fluid and his chances of living were bleak. The choices were to euthanize or attempt to transport Kahn an hour away to Oregon State University’s advanced vet hospital. His chances of surviving the trip were very low and the vet bills would be very high.
The initial choice was to euthanize Kahn so that he could be surrounded by family and die peacefully. But Kahn is a fighter. If he could survive that one hour, then surely it was worth the risk.
“Yes We Kahn” is a photo book assembled within two weeks of Kahn’s ordeal to help pay for his emergency vet bills. It’s a social experiment to see if people will buy a book to help out a cat they don’t know. And if this social experiment works, then another book will be released outlining how it was done in order to help other pet owners come up with fund-raising ideas after a pet medical emergency.
