Hi, my name is Louie and this is my story:
I don’t know why the people picked me up out of my bed so abruptly and put me in the car. It was so sudden. I didn’t know what was going on or their intentions. It was a bit of a drive, and I was becoming very concerned. Suddenly the car stopped and I could smell fresh air, and heard just the birds singing and very little other noise. The car door was opened and I was quickly picked up and tossed out. Not sat down gently, no words were spoken, just tossed. Where the heck was I now? The car wheels turned and peeled off out of the gravel driveway. The whole thing was terrifying to me and I took off like a shot. I ran through a backyard where I saw a little girl on a swing and dove into some bushes to hide. Catching my breath, I peered around wondering what just happened. I heard the sweet little voice of the girl calling me and she said the name Louie. That sounded nice and eventually I crept out and made a beeline just to her. I was very happy to see people and be pet and to be cuddled but they could see right away something was wrong with me. I was kind of skinny and a little rough looking but it was my eyes that caught their attention. They were very weepy and looked very sad. The people may have thought that I had eye infections but I knew I had my eyelashes rubbing against my eye balls. It was very irritating. Now that I am in Pet Patrol care I found out the name of it is called entropia. That is where I was born with my eyelashes curling into my eye and not flipping out. This is like having sandpaper rubbing against my cornea all the time. Pet Patrol has taken me to the kitty doctor where they have said that I need surgery. What does that mean? Pet Patrol has been so good to me, I have my own suite, I have lots of food, I am warm and I’m given lots of affection. I am quite happy here but to see is very difficult. I don’t like to open up my eyes and they feel scratchy all the time. So, I’m putting my little paws together and asking if you would be able to help me get the surgery that I need. I have heard it will be $471 And I would really appreciate the support. I would be able to open my eyes wide and see the world finally. No more squinting and no more pain. Since I was a baby I have had this problem so I’ve never been able to see anything clearly. Wow! If I could get my eye surgery done, then I could see! I could really see! that would be a wonderful thing. If you could help that would make this rough looking boy such a happy boy.
