Please help our special needs kitty, Lucky, a young fellow who loves to give and get love but to whom life has handed some very steep medical obstacles. Born in the desert in 2017, left motherless and full of cactus needles, Lucky was lucky to find the caring folks at Paws Patrol of Green Valley, AZ.

The group has cared for Lucky throughout his ordeals: born with a megacolon; near death from a respiratory illness; asthma; scarring of his right cornea; and weakened immune system. Resiliently, Lucky continues to thrive and survive by receiving medications throughout the day, a special diet and monitored bowel movements. But his life now hangs on the need of a $828 surgery for his most challenging health issue: removal of a testicle that doctors say is lodged somewhere in his body.

Without surgery, Lucky’s quality of life will be challenged.
Help us continue to give Lucky a chance at life. Thank you.

Paws Patrol is a 13-year-old community-oriented, not for profit organization that works to reduce community cat overpopulation through Trap-Neuter-Return in order to create a healthier environment for people and cats alike. Its work includes rescuing, fostering and finding homes for pets. Since April 2006 our organization has taken in 4,304 cats; we've returned 2,021 feral cats to their colonies and barns throughout southern Arizona; we've found homes for 1,430 cats; and with a heavy heart we've lost 158 cats.

 Any additional funds raised will go to help other Paws Patrol cats.

Want to join me in making a difference? I'm raising money to benefit Paws Patrol Inc, and any donation will help make an impact. Thanks in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to me.

More information about Paws Patrol Inc: Feral cat overpopulation problems are successfully solved using TNR. Along with spay/neuter, the cats are vaccinated and health issues such as ringworm are addressed before they are returned to their original colony. Community problems such as spraying, yowling, and destruction of property are minimized and sometimes totally eliminated. Tame strays are fostered, re-socialized and adopted into good homes. Senior citizens and disabled persons can qualify for a special program pairing up companion cats with those in need.

Lucky's surgery went well! The doctors were able to locate his testicle and remove it. Lucky was under full anesthesia. As of this evening he is back with his caretaker to rest and make a full recovery. We thank you so much for your support!

A little more about Lucky from his caretaker: Lucky trills when he wants something, whether it is food, attention or whatever. He will "walk" me to the kitchen when he is very hungry and stare me in the eyes to ensure a speedy delivery! He is very particular about meal etiquette and always has a bath post-meal and occasionally a clean-up pre-meal, followed by a siesta.

So far, his favorite # 1 food is duck, Tiki cat shredded chicken and then a combo of turkey, quail and duck. Don't know why he has such "wild" tastes for a fellow who was abandoned in the wild! Try to give him a gluten/grain-loaded food is a No Go. He seems to know it is not good for him since it "plugs up" his GI system.

From the GI system to the GU system, he is too fond of the younger females kitties — that is a real problem. If given the chance, he "peeks" under the door crack to view, listen and savor the feminine, feline odors emanating from within. A eerie cry and yowl ensue which puts my hair on end! Lonely, irksome and disconcerting, it is another "un-neutered" male trait another reason it's important for this surgery.

Because of his asthma, he is limited in his play time; he would continue until exhaustion however, I quit stimulating him by design. One to two minutes leads to heavy panting and a hanging tongue with sides heaving. He loves any toy that borders on the realistic like a furry mouse. He loves the hugs and kicks type toy, too. He's just learning about the laser light and chases a string.
