If You Could See Through My Eyes

Pet Patrol is a volunteer-run, non-profit cat rescue organization in the Kitchener-Waterloo area. All our cats are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and any health concerns are addressed before they are available for adoption. Please visit our website for more information about our charity.

I’m not even a year old yet, and look at the struggles I have had! My name is Dexter and I came to the Pet Patrol sanctuary when I was a tiny baby. My mom rejected me and many volunteers in the sanctuary helped to bottle feed me and take care of me. That’s probably why I am so loving now – I give big purrs and kisses to anyone who snuggles me! Pet Patrol also found me a surrogate mom who nurtured me and taught me how to be a cat. When I was
a baby, both of the cornea’s on my eyes were covered with a puffy, bright red bubble. I couldn’t see anything but I was a fighter. With lots of vet care and lots of medication, my eyes became almost clear. I can see about five or six feet ahead, I run like the wind, I don’t miss a toy, I love my canned food and all my buddies are here. I love to wrestle and play and groom and cuddle with the other cats. Things were going along fine, but now all of a sudden my eyes are bright red again. They’re not puffy, just very sinewy looking and uncomfortable. I need to go to the Animal Ophthalmologist in Toronto. I don’t know where that is, but I think it’s a long ways away. They say that the consultation appointment will be $500 and if I need lots of treatments who knows what the costs will be. Oh my! I don’t have enough purrs saved up! I know I am as cute as a button, I love to be cradled in people’s arms and I am just the happiest boy.
But I don’t want to lose my vision! Please no! Could you please donate to help me see my future?
