Dexter's Emergency Surgery

Dexter is an extremely loving, active, talkative, gentle, and hilarious cat. He's the kind of cat that appears to know when someone is upset and will spend hours literally laying on top of them in an attempt to make people feel better. I've never met a cat like him, and I've never met someone who didn't instantly fall in love with him.

In short, he's my heart. When nothing else in the world seems right, Dexter is there purring loudly next to my face. I can't imagine my life without him.

Which is why, on the night of June 3rd, I didn't hesitate when he wasn't being himself and hiding in the corner/yelping when I tried to pick him up.

I rushed him to the emergency vet 30 miles away to have him checked out. After a couple of hours with a vet, it turns out he has a blockage in his urethra, and they are having extreme difficulty removing it. My only options, which are being presented to me at 4:30 AM, include extremely expensive surgery or euthanization (and I have to decide on the spot).

I elected for the surgery, because how could I not?

Well, the problem now comes with the fact that I am unprepared to actually fund this surgery by myself at the drop of a hat. As it goes, the surgery has to happen or Dexter will no longer be with us.

I am asking, as kindly as I possibly can, for your support with this. Anything will help! Myself, and Dexter, will be incredibly grateful for anything and everything for the rest of our lives.

God bless.
