Save Raleigh

$3,161 of $4,000 goal

Raised by 139 people in 11 months
Raleigh was diagnosed this week with a urinary disease that causes him to form stones in his bladder, which block it and prevent him from urinating, essentially poisoning him because he cannot express himself and release the toxins that build up.

There is a surgery that can completely change his urethra, widening it so that it will never block, and prevent this from ever happening in the future. As of now, Raleigh is at very high risk of blocking, likely within the next couple of days, and if he does, I cannot afford the vet bill to save him, and would be forced to put him down. To get him into surgery this week and fix the problem, I will need $4,000 upfront, which I simply do not have.

He is my best friend and the most wonderful cat. I know cats are stereotypically assholes, but he is one of those cats that genuinely is the most incredible pet. He greets me at the door, follows me everywhere and is very talkative. He loves to sit on our porch swing and get belly rubs, and let's you tuck him in like a little human and sleeps that way the whole night. He loves to play fetch and prefers dog toys, and his fur is SO soft. He is everything I have and I can't imagine my life without him.

I'm really not a materialistic person, but he is my one joy in life.

anything helps ❤️

Update!

Raleigh is 5 days post op and doing wonderfully!!! He finagled his first cone off (and luckily did not rip out any stitches) and hid it under his crate pad, so that I couldn't find it. SO, I got him two different cones, because he lost his privileges with the first one, haha! He's so funny. He is healing wonderfully and has a healthy appetite, and has gotten really good at taking his medicine. Everything is working as it should and though very bored being confined to a crate, he is very very happy. I work from home so it's been a sweet few days thus far ❤️ I will be sending out a gallery with a bunch of his portraits to every email registered, as a gift for every wonderful and incredibly generous donation. Thank you!!!

As of now, we are able to cover the rest through various other sources, so even though we didn't reach the total, Raleigh was signed on for surgery last night and will go in this morning!

The doctors are confident this is his best option. I got to see him (he was already in the kitty hospital!) and he was really really high (haha), but happy and in high spirits. I can not thank each and every one of you enough, because of you I get a chance to spend many more years with my best friend. I am forever grateful ❤️ Thank you!!
