Goku’s Uterine Surgery

$1,000 of $3,500 goal

Raised by 15 people in 10 months
Goku my crazy cat I adopted 2 years ago from Best Friends ended up with a urinary obstruction for anyone that knows this can be pretty bad for cats and can easily kill, luckily I caught it in time, but with that comes costs he has to stay in the hospital for 3 days and get some IV fluids and make sure he can pee, but I can’t do that without paying for the vet they quoted me at $3500. If I had the money right now to help him I would, but it’s just not in the cards. If anyone can help I’d appreciate it and owe you one since if you know me you know I love my cats so if anything happens I don’t know what I’ll do.

This is him and my cat Hendrix. They're friends and the reason I got Hendrix in the first place was that Goku needed a friend. I'd hate to see them have to separate! 
This was about 5 months ago. Goku would always want Hendrix to play with him. Seeing him so lethargic and not able to play with him is probably one of the saddest things about all this. 
Overall I took a chance on this cat because the people at Best Friends were calling him Bonkers he really is a bit crazy and I wanted to take his little aggressive self and see what I could do and he's actually become quite a sweetheart. 
When I first got him he'd never lay on me now he does it regularly. I miss him when he's not here. The reason I'm taking a risk on him again is that he's so young, this situation is manageable and he deserves a fighting chance. If it were cancer or some other type of problem I might have to reconsider, but it's not. His blood work is perfect and he's a very healthy cat he just seems to get his urethra clogged. It's incredibly deadly for this to happen to cats, but again manageable. I'm hoping he pulls through this because he doesn't deserve to end like this. 


If anyone out there can help I'll really appreciate it for my black boy.

Thanks to everyone who donated! I still have quite a few vet bills to pay off, but he came through surgery just fine and they let me bring him home. The past 6 days or so I've just been hovering over him since he's been in pain he hasn't been the best with going to the bathroom, but he is still peeing which is the important part. For anyone else who's been through this surgery you know that urinary blockages can be on of the deadliest things to cats, so I'm glad I was able to save him especially since he's only 2. In the mean time I've decided to put together a t-shirt store to try to raise more funds for his surgery: https://formyhoomans.com/collections/all if you guys could share that I'd appreciate it. And in the mean time here's a photo of him from today where he took over my computer. Thanks again for the help everyone!

Okay! The clinic said they'd do the surgery without the full downpayment. Unfortunately, I still have a way to go because he's basically a hostage that is if his surgery goes well. Thank you, everyone, who's donated so far. I hope I'll be able to get him back soon . As for why I went ahead with it as I'm sure some people who read this think it's insane is we know he has a blockage, but we don't know the underlying cause. His vitals are 100% normal and he hasn't been stressed, the vet said his uterus did feel small, but it's hard to say if there is anything to that until she gets in there and moves things around. If all goes well he'll lose his boy parts, be able to pee again and hopefully live a long full life that's the best case scenario. I'll be updating as I get info, but for now he's with the vet!

Still at the emergency vet about to take him to my regular one since this one couldn’t get the catheter in. I’m so worried.
