Our beloved cat Minzi had gone missing for 6 days. Today when I came home for work she was on the door step, a little thinner, mewing at the door. With tears in my eyes I rushed her inside with fusses to her food bowl where she gulped down food and water.
When she tried to move away I noticed her back left leg was being kept off the floor.
An hour later we were at the vets, where the vet told us she suspected a fractured pelvis.
£400 we can't really afford, and several hours later the first news is in. The damage is in the joint and the xrays are being passed onto an orthopedic veterinary surgeon who will advise us on the costs of operating.
The total cost will probably be up to £4000 and we desperately need help finding the money so she can have the operation she needs. For various reasons she is not covered by any insurance so we are asking for help via Gofund me. Our link is www.gofundme.com/hisyd8
Without the surgery she will be in discomfort for life before going lame. In this case cage rest will not be enough.
If we raise more money than we need, the excess will be donated to the Cats Protection League.
If you can spare anything to help we would appreciate it, and if you can't please share the Gofundme link www.gofundme.com/hisyd8
Thanking you in advance for anything you can do to help.
We've heard back from the surgeon today, the cost of treatment is less than the worse case, at £2000. More than we could have afforded without all the help we've had, but at least with all the donations we can afford to pay the first half up front to get the surgery in on Monday, then we just need the other half within 2 months.
Thank you everyone who has donated and shared and helped to make sure Minzi can have her surgery. I feel so lucky for all the kindness that has been showered on us.
We still need more donations to cover the full cost, but at least we can get the ball rolling.
Minzi seems more perky than she did a couple of days ago, and is going to the toilet without problems, which was an added complication that could of occured with her injury.
Just a quick line to say we have hit 3/4 of our target. Thank you everyone.
Minzi's operation has been delayed until Tuesday due to equipment availability.
Minzi's son Zelo has constantly wanted to be involved in Minzi's care as can be seen below.
