Hi, we're Deb & Joe and this is a fundraiser for our cat, Max II.  On Saturday, Max was having a typical day - tearing up carpet, harassing our other cat, Bellatrix, chasing his fur mice, hanging out in his Fortress of Solitude.

Yesterday, Sunday, this all changed.  He was lethargic and crying.  We rushed him to the kitty ER where they unblocked his bladder.  They are keeping him for several days.  He will be fine, we're told this is just something that sometimes happens to male cats but the procedure will cost close to $2,000 and he will need to be on (expensive) special food for the rest of his life.

This was a very sudden very unexpected expense for myself and Joe.  The money will be used to pay for this procedure.  We love Max and he's a young cat, only four.  Any help is greatly appreciated and would mean the world to us.

This morning we got the call from kitty ER that Max reblocked and will need additional surgery called perineal urethrostomy. The total cost will be $4,000. We have not received an invoice yet as they are performing the surgery as I update. He will need to stay for a few more days. After this surgery, he should not have future blockage problems. We called our vet to get a second opinion and she said that this surgery is the next step.

It's been a v. stressful morning.

We are overwhelmed by the kind donations we have received. Together we've raised enough funds to pay for up to a third of Max's medical expenses. When we receive the invoice, we will post it here for your reference. That should be later this week.

He is still being monitored at the kitty hospital and his kidney levels are good. They are hoping to take the catheter out today and he should be able to go home tomorrow or Thursday. He is in good spirits, enjoying his pain drugs and head booping the staff through his cone of shame.

Please give him ear-skritches from me when he comes home. He is a beautiful creature.
