Please help save Jinxy Cat

32349776_1535027588203727_r.jpegThis is Jinxy Cat and he is 4 years old. I rehomed him when he was 16 weeks old when his former owners couldn't take care of him.  From the second I brought him home we have had a bond like I've never experienced with any other animal.   Last year Jinxy had cystitis and he was put on medication.  In March he became fully blocked and had to have an operation to unblock his urethra.  He has been fine for a few months until this week. Jinxy became blocked up again and has already had to have two surgeries.  We have already paid out over £2000.  During the last surgery they struggled to get the catheter in and he was nearly put to sleep.  They said that if he becomes blocked again the only option is to euthanise him because of the scar tissue already there. I am absolutely heartbroken.  He is my little shadow and the thought of him not coming up to bed for headbutts and belly rubs is killing me. The only option that could work is if he has an operation to open his urethra.  The vet said 'it basically turns a male cat into a female cat'.  It is called a perineal urethrostomy. The problem is that the surgery will cost about £5000.   We have exhausted any saving and we've already got a finance plan to pay off the operation he's already had and we have literally nothing left. The best chance he has is if he has this operation and I am desperate. If you could make a donation towards the cost of the vet bill so that my boy has a chance that would mean everything to me.  Thank you. If the worst happens and we can't get Jinxy the operation he needs in time, all funds will be donated to Cardiff Cats Protection.

Hi everyone.

Unfortunately we were unable to get Jinxy the operation he needed in time. He blocked completely again on Thursday and I had to make the heartbreaking decision to have him put to sleep. I was with him when he went. I was scratching his ear and I told him I loved him just before he passed. I am absolutely devastated. He was the most amazing cat and I truly love him with all my heart. He was only 4 years old.

With the donations we received, our family has decided that we would like to give more cats the chance of a happy life and we will hopefully be rehoming two rescue cats and donating the money we received in Jinxy's memory, to help other cats in need.

I am so thankful for the time I had with my beautiful boy. He was so loved and he loved so much in return. Nothing will ever replace him. I know in time it will get easier. There won't be a single day that I don't miss his little face rubbing up against me.

Thank you all so much for your help. We tried so hard to save him.

I love you so much my little Jinxy cat. If love could have saved you, you would have lived forever. Sleep tight my beautiful boy x

Jinxy is back at home now with an absolute ton of medication. Hopefully we can keep him unblocked until we can get him the surgery he needs. Thank you for everything so far. Please keep sharing!
He's going to hate us giving him this
