Yesterday, we brought my kitten Rudy to the vet for the first time thinking it would be a normal check up and everything would be fine and he would get his blood work done and have all his shots. But of course when they bring him back to us from taking blood from him, we are told that he has a hernia (or something like a hernia, I don’t remember the exact term) on his lower belly. Apparently, this is usually an easy fix, but not in Rudy’s case. The veterinarian told us it’s one of the worst cases he’s ever seen. To fix this, he needs surgery that costs $18,000. Both of my parents are working and I am currently job hunting, but what middle class family has $18,000 lying around? We were also told shelters will not take him knowing his condition and euthanasia would be our last option if we can’t come up with the money. I looked into pet insurance and they won’t cover the surgery knowing that he needs it currently. He is the cutest, sweetest thing and I can’t bear to give him up. If you guys could please, please, PLEASE reblog and get this circulating and maybe even donate just a little bit, I would appreciate it more than I can even express.
*some of the information in here may be a little off because it’s 5am and I am not thinking very clearly, but if I later catch any mistakes I will update this as soon I catch any inaccuracies.
Signal boost this shit. This cat is adorable
