I just got some upsetting news today. My brother’s roommate’s cat (Number 5) has a urinary blockage. They had to take him to the ER last night. Now Number 5 is with a regular vet, where he will stay for at least the weekend. At this point, I think they have Number 5’s condition under control, but the upsetting thing is that they’re afraid they won’t be able to afford the medical care necessary. My brother told me that he had just donated to the animal rescue effort in Japan, and he does not regret it but now it seems financially irresponsible given Number 5’s emergency.
Anyways, I told him I would post this:
***Number 5 is in the hospital and we’re looking at at least $1000 of medical bills. We need to have at least $500 by Monday. If you’d like to donate some money to help him, any little bit would help, and we can take donations via paypal at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll be posting updates about his condition at facebook.com/Number00005. Please keep him in your thoughts and send positive energy!***
Number 5 is a remarkable kitty. He likes to go on walks and ride around town in a bicycle basket. He’s affectionate and likes cuddles, and he’s also a loving kitty-father. I know how much he means to his peeps and it is so difficult to watch them go through this, especially when many of us have gone through similar things too.
EDIT: Here are some photos of Number 5 from his Facebook.
