Our little lucky black cat, Jinx, isn't having the best of luck when it comes to his health. As you can see, he's just sick (hehe) about it.
"I'm just sick about it."
One night we noticed he was in a lot of pain and was squatting on everything the little devil could squat on. After bringing him to the weekend Emergency Hospital, we were told he developed a urethral obstruction, which is fairly common in male cats. Fairly common, though, doesn't mean cheap. It's a condition that, if left untreated, is fatal in a matter of days. So, after $3,500 dollars and three days in hospitalization, we were finally able to bring him home. That, our splendiferous friend, we hoped would be the end of it.
The rub is, dear well-adjusted family member, that once a cat is obstructed, there's a pretty good chance that he'll obstruct again. Unfortunately, the signs are pointing to that being the case, and the first round of treatment has already put us in a hole, financially. So as things stand, we're looking at two options:
1) Repeating the treatment we've already done in hopes that he doesn't obstruct a third time, which we can't afford.
2) Sending Jinx into a surgery called perineal urethrostomy, which we super can't afford.
That's where you come in, stunningly beautiful friend and/or family member!
Seriously, we hate that it's come to the point where we need your help, but we hate the idea that we're going to lose our cat because we can't afford to pay his bills even more.
SO, anything you can do to help honestly means everything to us right now. Whether it's donating five dollars, or sharing this campaign, we would be so so grateful. Thank you all for the care and support!
