We study a -analog of a singularly perturbed Cauchy problem with irregular singularity in the complex domain which generalizes a previous result by Malek in (2011). First, we construct solutions defined in open -spirals to the origin. By means of a -Gevrey version of Malgrange-Sibuya theorem we show the existence of a formal power series in the perturbation parameter which turns out to be the -Gevrey asymptotic expansion (of certain type) of the actual solutions.
