Simba's PERINEAL URETHROSTOMY (PU)



Hi everyone, my name is Tania. I believe that love and compassion can save the world so please help us save our cat SIMBA The Warrior!!! Please help us raise $3,000 for PERINEAL URETHROSTOMY (PU) surgery for baby Simba.

Simba's Story:
Simba is our orange tabby cat who received his name “SIMBA THE WARRIOR” when we realized how strong willed he was to survive after having his tail ripped off at the age of only 4-5 weeks. We rescued him on the side of a very busy road, over a year ago. He was only 4-5 weeks old and badly injured. Somebody had ripped off his tail.

Nobody thought that he would survive because he had a severe infected and open injury which was a couple of days old. But our great love did a miracle, his wound healed but not without consequence: he started having urinary incontinence and wearing diapers regularly.

We never cared about our comfort but only about his, which means when Simba was happy we were all happy.
After we had rescued him, he continued to be a happy kitten, very intelligent and good hearted with a voracious appetite. We thought that it is because he was injured, hungry, and alone for days.
I was his caregiver while he was healing. Because he lost his mom too early, he got so close to me that much that each time he is looking at me my heart melts because I see adoration in his beautiful eyes and such unconditional love and gratefulness that it takes my breath away and brings the happy tears in my eyes. Every night from the age of 5 weeks he comes to me and gives hugs strongly and start nibbling on my neck.

We found him on a very busy Sunrise boulevard just a week before Christmas 2015. He become our Sun because he brought even more sunshine to our home. We also have two Golden Retrievers Joy and Charlie and Calico cat named Berry that we also saved from horrible conditions because of which she had her leg amputated 4 years ago. All our animals are our furry children that we adore and would do anything for. Our Love has no limits for them.

Everything was fine in our little happy family until Hurricane IRMA.

Hurricane Irma was at the horizon!
It was the 9th of September 2017, the day we were waiting for Hurricane Irma to hit us in South Florida. Simba started having severe pain because of urinary blockage, which means that he needed immediate medical help. We panicked! My husband drove him in the evening, through the threatening winds and rain of Irma to the only emergency open in the area, 30 min from home. The curfew was already in effect. I stayed at home with two of our Golden Retrievers and our cat Berry, praying. Once they got there there, the medical staff helped him pass the urine and gave him antibiotics. They said that he would be fine until Hurricane Irma goes away. But once at home, unexpectedly quickly, he got blocked again and started straining, in only two hours! But there was no way back … Irma was literally at the door.
Simba was in terrible pain and we watched his precious life slowly fading away. I cannot even explain the feeling when you are watching someone you love, in horrible pain, slowly dying, without any power of helping him with the terror of Hurricane Irma on your back. We could only pray for Irma to go away quickly, so that we can get him helped.

It was still curfew on the early Monday morning, when, thank God we brought him to the emergency where they helped him come back to life again. We had a hard time driving through the mess Irma left, but thank God we made it through. He had extremely high level of potassium, which was slowing down his heart. We arrived just in time.
