Help Charlie & The Life He Deserves

Charlie is our 12 year old cat who we recently adopted from Urban Cat Alliance in Sydney. Charlie has a long list of medical problems and we’re trying to deal with the worst ones first. When he arrived he was given a life expectancy of 6-12 months, he’s been with us for 3 months now and has become a member of our family. Charlie has skin cancer, he’s FIV positive and has a heart murmur. At the moment we’re dealing with the aftermath of the surgery. On his left ear the ear canal was removed and has been infected for the last few months. He has vet appointments every 7-14 days for a dose of antibiotics, he also has antibiotics twice a day at home. Charlie ear started to improve with the oral medication but there’s a big chance he’ll have to surgery to open up the wound again and start the healing process from scratch. Where his ear canal used to be, the passage isn’t healing back together and it’s causing him discomfort and a lot of stress. We previously fundraised to help with him ongoing medical costs but have ran out of funds. This surgery is going to be costly and we’re unable to pay for it. It breaks our heart knowing he’ll have to go through the stress and trauma of going under once again. We want Charlie to have the life he deserves after being on the streets for too long. His previous owners abandoned him and his ears were extremely damaged and deteriorated from the skin cancer which started the big problem. We like to say Charlie is in retirement and we just want to provide for him while he’s still with us. He deserves all the happiness, love and care that he never got when he was younger.
