Cuddly cat Strix needs help

**UPDATE** I am sorry that I'll have to be the bringer of bad news. Strix passed away yesterday. He suddenly was unable to pee because of kidney stones. He was too weak to go through surgery, so after much consideration, and thinking about the pain he was in, we decided to let him sleep. Both me and his original owner want to extend our thanks to all of you who donated. You helped us extend his life as far as we could. Money is irrelevant when it comes to a pet's well-being.

However, the acute vet bill yesterday came to another 4200 kr. So in total we owe the vet over 25 000 kr. I'll be keeping this campaign open for now, because I am still taking care of Strix's sister. She needs to go see a vet to get her health checked up since they're siblings. She seems fine for now, but we can't currently afford to get her to the vet. I hope you'll still consider donating, if you haven't already, and spreading this campaign, in memory of Strix and to help support his sister Vitie.

Thank you all so much again.


Strix is a happy, cuddly cat of 14 years. But he's currently struggling to live.

My name is Elise and I recently got to take care of this lovely cat. Unfortunately, a day after he arrived at his new forever-home, he fell very sick. I took him to the veterinarian, who had him for three nights, and after many, many tests, it turns out he has acute and chronic kidney disease as well as an infection. He needs acute medical care and will need care for a long time from now on.

His owner Lena, and I, want to give Strix a good life. He used to live in a very small space, and so Elise was looking forward to taking care of Strix and his sister Vitie and giving them a loving forever-home until their last time. We never knew it could possibly become so soon for Strix.

He is trying to live. He didn't eat before, but after a few days at the vet, he is eating again. He still has an infection and will need special cat foods from now on, if he survives at all. But he is fighting, he wants to live. We want to let him live for as long as he can.

There is a genuine chance that he will survive. However, it will be extremely expensive from now on. So far the bill has come up to 22 000 kr. Insurance only covers 7500 kr of that. Lena works full time as a librarian and Elise is only working part time, so we're having trouble being able to pay for these sudden and unexpected bills.

We really want to give Strix the best life he can get, and we can only imagine how much his sister Vitie will miss him if he has to be put to sleep.

With the right food, and medication, he can probably live for a good while more. But there will be many vet checks from now on.

By donating any amount you're helping us give Strix a good life for as long as possible.

If you can't donate, please consider sharing this campaign.

Anything helps.

Thank you sincerely.
