Rossi's Emergency Surgery

Hello friends!

My name is Rossi! I am a 4 year old Pixiebob cat and I live with my sister, Valentine, and my Mom and Dad who love me very much!

I might look like a scary bobcat, but I promise I am a good boy! Mom says I'm a "domestic breed" Whatever that means!

I am usually a very happy boy, but on Monday, Mom noticed I wasn't feeling very well.

Dad took me to Dr. Benjamin (I love Dr. Benjamin!) who did some scary X-rays. They told Mom that I had a urinary blockage and big bladder stones. I was very scared. My tummy hurt a lot from not being able to pee and I started to throw up a lot. Dr. Benjamin said that Mom and Dad needed to take me to an emergency vet ASAP for surgery or I would have kidney damage!

My parents were so scared. They rushed me in and the nice people there took good care of me. I woke up from my surgery at around 3am on Tuesday and my parents were so relieved! I am still at the hospital but they say I can go home on Wednesday or Thursday as soon as they are able to take my catheter out. I'm so excited to see my sister again!

Mom says the surgery was very expensive. I feel so bad for making things hard on my parents, but they told me I am worth every penny! The stay is $4,000 so far and going up by the day. Mom and Dad had to take out a Care Credit account to cover my expenses so far. Mom had to go to the hospital a few months ago for a seizure, which cost a lot too.  Dad says I will have to go on a special diet after this so it doesn't happen again. 

Some nice ladies on the internet said they would help Mom out if I asked nicely and made this account. I hope they are right! 

From Rossi's Mom: Thank you ladies of LWCC for insisting that I make this page. Anything you could give would be appreciated more than you know. Rossi really is worth every penny I have (or had!). I have had a lot of pets and have loved them all, but Rossi truly is the other half of my soul. I am sure you know exactly what I mean if you've ever connected with an animal in such a deep way. Thank you so much for your generosity. It will never be forgotten.
