Klaus is one of our Bengal cat. He’s a very talkative, silly little boy with the sweetest personality. Klaus just turned one year old on October 5th this year, and this was a HUGE deal for us, since Klaus had a rough start. He was a runt, and weighed only 1.7lb when we first received him from the breeder.
Our vet described him as “sickly” during his first appointment, and explained that he may not make it to a year old. So his one year birthday was a big celebration for us. I thought everything was going well.
Only 10 days after his big birthday, I find Klaus throwing up early morning. After the 3rd time, he threw up a tag that was on his cat toy. I quickly realized he must’ve chewed it off and swallowed it. I thought that was the end of it, but unfortunately... It wasn’t.
He continued to throw up, refused to eat or drink (which he has NEVER done before, even when he had a cold), wasn’t urinating or defecating, and lethargic. I’ve never seen him so weak.
Our vet suggested us to go to the emergency hospital, and we took him immediately. They did a X-ray on him and found that he has a linear foreign object in his intestine. This requires emergency surgery, otherwise, he would die.
This procedure was beyond the amount I expected, as they quoted us a total of $5,570 (surgery to remove foreign body, X-ray, bloodwork, IV, pain meds, hospitalization, etc.) This is assuming there are no other complications.
The situation was urgent, as his life is in danger, so we proceeded with the surgery. Unfortunately though, the surgery fee is way too high, and as much as I hate to admit it, we need help.
Please share. ANY help is greatly appreciated. To each and every person who donate/share, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Your support means so much to us, Klaus, and our daughter (other Bengal) Miyu. Our only wish is for Klaus to live a long, happy life.
