Mordecai’s Vet Bills

I found Mordecai as a stray by a busy road and I took him in, hoping to find his family. Nobody claimed him and soon enough I became his family and I love him so much. Over the past ten years, he has seen me through some of my darkest times and I can confidently say I wouldn’t be alive today without him. 

I want to repay the favor, but recent mental health struggles keep me from work that would allow me to help him. He has a condition called crystalluria, which keeps him from being able to urinate. If he cannot do this, oftentimes cats can die, painfully, within 24 hours. He was taken to an emergency vet, who charged thousands of dollars I couldn’t afford to save his life. They said he pulled out his catheter and they did not replace it, and now he is still having difficulty going to the bathroom, implying that his expensive care wasn’t adequate to flush his system and get him going again. 

I will need to take him to another veterinarian as quickly as possible, but I have no funds to do so. If I can’t get him treated, then I will need to put him down so that he doesn’t die slowly and painfully. Please help me save him.
