Response has been amazing and overwhelming. My family and I are so humbled and thankful for all your support. Unfortunately, the vet bills, due to kidney complications, rose $500 past our original estimate, and we are raising the cap. Please reference the image here for proof:
and know that an extra $250 is necessary for a follow up siege of tests in several weeks, after he has recovered from his surgery some.
Tyr is my baby. Please help me save him. He needs a perineal urethrostomy in order to save his life. I can't afford to keep taking him to the vet because of his peeing issues, and while putting him down is cheaper, it breaks my heart to think that there is a surgery that will return him to his regular quality of life and happiness. At 1.5 years old, he has a long life ahead of him.
Letter from Tyr:
Hello, my name is Tyr. I am a loving, loyal young cat, and I love to play with laser toys and catnip. I am super docile, I purr easily, and I am a big kitty to boot--16lbs at a healthy weight!
I want a long and happy life, but my owner worries that I may not get that chance.
Last year, I started to have problems peeing. My owner realized that I was trying to tell her something, so she would take me to the vet whenever she could, and in general, I would be fine. Sometimes I'd pee outside the litter box when I was feeling uncomfortable, but I never meant anything by it. Two months ago, though, I had to have a blockage removed. I was happy to be able to pee again, but I hated that cone!
Recently, however, I started to feel really bad. Eating made me sick, and I didn't drink water. My owner has several options, and putting me down is the last thing she or I want.
Because my owner took in my mom, a pregnant foster kitty, she has lived with 4, now 3 (one kitty went to a new home) cats for some time now. She has feeding us down to a science, with automatic feeders and filtered water. She works full time, and makes enough to pay for routine kitty check-ups and care, but my problems are outside her abilities. She has spent over $1000 on me already, and doesn't want to go into more debt.
My owner's family has already pitched in what they can to help out, but she is on her own when caring for me and my brother and sister. So, she and I are asking for your help, now.
Please help me live. I am loved by everyone who meets me, and I only want to love in return. Please donate to my cause.
All donators will receive updates on Tyr's condition via e-mail, with videos, bi-weekly.
PLEASE share this, and consider donating if you can.
