Broly's Surgery & Post Op Care


On Monday February 5th this poor young kitty was hit by a car and the culprit drove off and left him stranded and broken in the middle of the road. Cars continued to try to move around him. They almost hit him again and the fear caused him to flail on the pavement resulting in more pain and discomfort. I was able to scoop him up and rush him to the emergency vet. They informed me that there were many unknowns. Was he hit in the head? Did he have a skull fracture? What would his mental status be like after the swelling went down?  Is his pelvis okay? His leg was definitely broken, his head was swollen, his stomach empty, and they couldn't find his bladder. I honestly didn't know what to expect, but I couldn't just leave him in the road to suffer and die alone.  Fast forward to today, just one week after the accident, Broly has made such progress. He visually looks much better than day one, his mental awareness is intact, he is urinating and defecating on his own, he's eating like he's never had a meal in his life. He has kept us on our toes with ups and downs and we have been managing his swelling and pain, but now we need to address his broken leg.  Broly needs a surgery called an FHO for his leg followed by post operative care and pain management. These surgerys can be pricey and we aren't even sure yet how much his care from beginning to end is going to cost. Unfortunately my husband and I are unable to keep Broly, but we have taken on his medical bills so that he can receive the care he needs. We are asking anyone that is able, even if it's just a few dollars, if they would like to donate to Broly's fund to help cover the costs of his long journey to recovery.  Thank you so much!
