Hi, my name is Heather, and this is one of my two cats, Mochi. I adopted him when he was abandoned by his mother and bottle fed him! Suffice it to say, we're strongly bonded.
Recently he became blocked, which is when a male cat gets an obstruction in their urethra that keeps them from peeing. It's an extremely dangerous condition and can kill a cat in days. I was able to get him in to the vet on Care Credit, but now I am currently unemployed aside from walking my neighbor's dog, and only make $50 a week.
I'm watching to make sure he doesn't re-block, which is a possibility. Meanwhile I have other expenses, such as follow up visits, transportation, and a special diet. I'm currently out 2k when I don't typically make that in a year, and hoping that I don't rack up more debt.
Anything you could contribute would help, thank you for listening to my story! Mochi is so important to me, I would do anything for him. (I'm currently looking for jobs and considering selling my car, but any help would take so much weight off my mind.)
