Help Persi with Quality of Life

Tldr; Persi needs help funding an echocardiogram and possible surgeries. Hi all, you might remember Persistence aka Persi from his last fundraiser. In case you don't though, Persi is my 1 year old cat without use of his back legs. He isn't paralyzed, but he was born with a back fracture and several deformities in his legs and hips. At first we were hopeful he might actually walk someday, but it was recently confirmed that he will never be able to walk, even with expensive leg and hip surgery. What's more, he seems to have no interest in trying to use his back legs. Recently he had two vet visits because he seemed to be developing pain recently. His xray report was a bit overwhelming, listing several issues with his legs and hips and suggesting several surgeries he might need. It also showed a heart abnormality, something that might preclude him from any surgeries. Right now Persi needs an echocardiogram to see more specifically what might be wrong with his heart. It's spendy, of course, and I am currently out of work and making little income, but I want to make sure he has the best quality of life possible. He has started pain medications and they are helping for now, but it's not the ideal long-term solution. Aside from the $480, I'm trying to raise enough should surgery become an option. Any extra will go to his medical care and supplies. There will be updates here as well as on his Instagram - @persistencethepurr - to document his ongoing medical issues. Anything is appreciated, including sharing this gofundme. I appreciate any help or assistance we receive, including well wishes. If you have any questions, you can reach me on his Instagram or at [email redacted]. Thank you and stay safe ❤️
