Help pay Moon's vet bills

I hate that I have to do this, but I can't let Moon go without trying everything possible to save my cuddly little boy. On September 21st I took him into the vet as he wasn't eating as much as usual and was constipated. The vet took some blood work and suggested it may be Feline Infectious Peritonitis, which is almost always fatal. I had to accept that I was going to lose my sweet boy and had to go through over a month of watching him slowly deteriorate, it had been over a month since the kitten that always slept cuddled up to me had done so and  let out his quiet squeaky little meow, he was barely eating, could barely walk  and having multiple seizures a day. At the time it suggested that he had FIP spread to his brain and I was preparing to have to put him down in the next few days. 

Out of nowhere I woke up to him next to me on my pillow and that same day I got hear those squeaky little meows I missed so much. The seizures decreased in frequency and 2 weeks later they completely stopped, he started playing again he was back to his normal self. On October 30th I took him to the vet who said  had she not known about the previous FIP diagnosis she would say that's a perfectly normal cat.


On November 11th I noticed he was lacking in energy and not eating or drinking much. This concerned me as it was similar to how he was acting in September and October. This time around he still kept his personality, His squeaky meows turned into silent meows, he wasn't very energetic but would follow me around the house and  would still play with toys. He no had little to no control of his bladder. He would come running when a can of food or treat bag was opened but he could only get himself to eat a little if any, he seemed like he was trying but couldn't do it. As the days went on he ate less and had less energy. 

November 13th I took him to vet again who informed me that his right kidney was about 4 times the size it should be and suggested it could've been caused by developing in the womb without it properly connected to his bladder. She estimated the surgery to reattach at 3000+ and couldn't say for certain if this would save him. A few hours later she called me back with his blood work results showing his goblet count was still normal  and that he could possibly get by with just 1 kidney. She sent a referral  to VCA Canada  Animal Hospital in Calgary, which is over a 2 hour drive away. I received a call from VCA on the morning of November 16th telling me that he should be brought into emergency as soon as possible. 

He has been admitted and is having a variety of tests run, they're keeping him for the time being so he can be monitored and has had a catheter and feeding tube inserted. This is quite expensive and I've had to put it on my credit card, on top of the vet visits I've paid a 75% deposit of $3700. To complicate things more I recently had someone total my car and I'm fighting with their insurance who is trying to pay me as little as possible. Currently I'm renting a car to go to the hospital and whatever I do end up getting for my car will be put towards the hospital bill.

I'm not expecting much, but every little bit helps. I understand a lot of people are in a bad financial situation right now and even if you can't donate I'd greatly appreciate you sharing this. If you are able to donate I can't even express in words how grateful I am.
