NEW YORK (1010 WINS)  She's got more than 44-thousand followers on instagram, and now fans are coming to the aid of a beloved mascot.

UPDATE as of 3-22-19 from Killer's caretaker! Meds are prescribed and surgery is planned:

Gwillym says they're consulting with a Veterinary Oncologist to see what, if any treatment, is possible.  In the meantime, she says they're committed to keeping Killer happy, comfortable and strong for as long as possible.

She also expressed thanks to those who've donated to a GoFundMe campaign, which as of Tuesday, March 19th, had raised nearly $6,000. "To know this little cat has touched the lives of so many really warmed my heart," says Gwillym. "They're such a nice group of people that have been following her for a long time.  It's like we're all together in this."

The fundraiser will pay for medical expenses, with any leftover funds donated to animal cancer foundations and charities centered around feral cats. Learn more at GoFundMe.com/Killers-Cancer-Fight.
