Earlier this week, something attacked Gremlin outside and inflicted numerous wounds to his head and back. He hid the injuries for a day or so, then went to emergency overnight vet clinic. He had high fever, was motionless. The vet sent him home prematurely, he got even worse and had to be rushed back. He's now at 50/50 chance of survival. If he pulls through, it would take a week of hospitalization and a long recovery period. I liquidated a part of my collection, but it looks like the costs will exceed my reserves. If you want to help, here's the opportunity.
I updated the goal on April 23 based on new info from the vet.

Edited 4/24 per Gofundme requirement:
I am Oleg Volk (Nashville, TN) raising funds to cover my cat's emergency medical expenses. The money will be used to pay Nashville Veterinary Specialists for their efforts to save my cat from death.

Gremlin died in my arms. CPR did not help. I am devastated.

Thank you, my many friends and friends of my friends, for the help. It's been very encouraging to see old familiar names show up, and apparent strangers too. The comments, the wishes and the prayers have buoyed our spirits as well.
Up to this point, the cost has been around $600 paid already and $5200 more estimated by the vet office. Guessing the expected additional 4 to 7 days of hospitalization will exceed the original estimate, we should know more tomorrow.

Thanks to Gremlin's good friends and mine, we are at half of the goal. I also got the check for the items I liquidated. This morning's update was "stable as long as medicated" and "neurologist will see him this afternoon". This is a better summary than any we've had up to now.

Gremlin has been maintaining. Blood pressure remains on the low side, but temperature and heart rate stabilized. Xray done today, CT scan may be done tomorrow, provided his condition permits it. We are very timidly optimistic.
