Save leliophelia's cat!
i know its a long time since ive made a appearence on these forms but a close friend of mine needs some help.
You know her as leliophelia
Her cat is really sick and she doesn't have the money to cover the vet bills. If any of you have any way to help this is what she wrote earlier today about him:
Toulouse is really sick. We (me and the emergency vet I took him to yesterday) don't know what's wrong.
Here are his symptoms:
-little to no eating
-little to no drinking
-not um, pooping
-slightly enlarged kidneys
-not himself at all
-uncomfortable/pain in the abdomen
The vet bill was $410.03. Of course, I'd pay as much as needed to see him better. He's only 9 months old and an exceptional cat and very very dear to me. I couldn't stand to lose him.
Some good news is that today he seems a little better. He finally ate some tuna (wouldn't touch his dry food), and I got him to take a few licks of some tuna-flavored water.
At the emergency vet, they took x rays and found that his kidneys were slightly larger than they should be, but nothing else. They gave him an injection of fluids because he was dehydrated, and a couple of other drugs. They wanted to keep him overnight, but I can't afford any more. So we're doing outpatient care. I'm giving him amoxicillin and pepcid twice a day. I think that's helping.
Anyway, I hate to put this out there, but I am extremely low on money. I'm losing my job next Friday and don't have anything else lined up yet. I can only pay $90 of that bill. I had no choice but to overdraft my account and try to pay it off over time, since the vet demanded money up front. And my parents won't help.
If any of you feeling particularly generous, I would appreciate any donations to my paypal account: firstname.lastname@example.org. If you want to lend me money and have me pay you back later, that can also work.
I can't stand to lose Toulouse. I'm afraid he'll take a turn for the worse. Tomorrow, if he's not any better, I'm taking him to a vet. Money or no money... I don't know how I'll do it, but I can't lose him.
