This has been a tough year for everyone. In our case, it has brought particular financial hardship. After losing jobs to COVID layoffs, we’ve had countless unexpected bills arise and have amassed ten’s of thousands of dollars in debt this year. We’ve managed to keep the lights on, the cats fed and a roof over our heads, barely, by selling whatever we had of value. But this last problem might be the one to finally do us in. We just can not afford it.
My cat Sid, my best friend of 17 years, has had sudden acute congestion, some of that has been steadily getting worse. He is struggling to breath, gasping and wheezing. We have already tried rounds of antibiotics and everything the vet suggested to curb his symptoms. But they now are suggesting a round of tests (and this is just tests, not even treatments) to try to figure out why he is having such trouble breathing and so much mucus build up.
We know he is getting on in years, but before this he was bright eyed, interested and his loving self, and he doesn’t deserve to reach his final time without trying to see if he can be helped.
We are asking for the money to pay for his tests and a little extra to boost what will likely be some expensive treatments.
We thank you for anything you are able to offer. We hate to ask but we just don’t have anything left to sell or credit to extend.
