Help Hudson the Kitten

52361848_1604621492812105_r.jpeg***UPDATE*** :( 

I would like to say Thank you so much to all the kind friends of Hudson's who took the time to share this  and/or donate. You have all helped make it possible to help this poor kitten as best we could. Unfortunately,  I am here to say the injuries Hudson suffered were so severe and internal he is no longer with us. Thank you to all for the help we have received  for Hudson, who was quite the grateful kitten.  I looked after for him throughout the last 3 weeks that he showed up on my porch and as we grew close.  His health declined the end of last week and  I was so heartbroken there was nothing more I could do. Hudson was under the care of a vet for his many health issues leading and up to his last moments. Thank you again to our lovely friends of Hudson and to all who feel inclined to donate to the medical bill relief of our late friend Hudson.

Any amount donated will go to the cost of Hudson's Veterinarian bills and medical expenses.
Thank you for your support during this sad time.
With love, Hudson the cat
May He Rest Peacefully.
 


He.
Rests.
Peaceful.
Cat.

HUDSON is the name of this hurt six month stray kitten that needs our help. Hudson showed up with an injured right hind leg and was extremely emaciated here at my apartment 2 weeks ago. Given I have two older cats of my own I didn't bring him inside not knowing what he may have and fed him on my porch. I provided a small pet house with blankets and fed him then decided to move him to the downstairs laundry room where it was dry and warmer. I noticed the injury on his leg was getting abscessed  and he was declining and not moving around as well as he was after 10 days or so. It also appeared he had an infection in his left leg and he was barely moving around so I took him to the vet yesterday 11/4. 


The vet said he had an abscess and infection in his right leg, cleaned it and removed the dead skin that had built up along with giving him antibiotics. Then she asked if he was moving around at all and able to walk because it appeared his left leg had a facture. I said yes he was but never was able to fully get about properly due to the right leg so I thought. She said in order to see what was going on he would need to have an xray which was $340 and unfortunately I don't have. I asked what else I could do to help him and she said have some tests done for to make sure he doesn't have any diseases or virus that can be transmitted to my cats and then crate him for 6-8 weeks to see if his leg will heal on it's own or the horrible thing is put him to sleep which I wasn't about to do because he's the sweetest friendliest cat. But besides that I just can't do anything like that anyway. 

Yesterday's bill was $274 for just the visit, tests for Feline Leukemia/FIV which came back negative and medicine. I have to give him pain medicine twice daily and now purchase a crate to keep him in. I'm looking on FB marketplace for a large crate and it seems they go for about $40-$50. I would really like to have the xrays done to see at least what injuries he has in his left leg so at least I'll know what the next plan is...ie  any surgery he may need.  Since I don't know what if any surgery is possible I'd like to in the interim recoop the costs of the bill initial bill and xray.  I've never asked for help financially from anyone in all my 51 yrs but I thought I would try for the kitten whom I've affectionately named Hudson. If anyone could help I truly would appreciate it as again I never ask for help but have been always willing to help others and have whenever I've been able to.

Any amount donated will go to the cost of Hudson's Veterinarian bills and medical expenses. The injuries he has suffered are severe, but we are hopeful he can heal with help.  Hudson is being looked after at my home and would also be extremely grateful for any help.  Hudson's health is the reason we are asking for your help! Help him get better to have a better life!
