Please help my kitten, Dream, to survive his illness!

Hello dear followers! ;____;
Without your help my little cat might die in the next few weeks and your help could safe his life and help him celebrate his first birthday this year!

It was been a while since I had to ask for your help in a private matter.

My beloved cat Dream, (full name: Requiem for a tiny pancake Dream called after Morpheus from The Sandman), eight months old, is very sick.
 
A week ago he started to pee everywhere; three days ago he stopped peeing altogether. His bladder was blocked with blood and mucus, I was later told.
(the illness is correctly called Feline Lower Urinary Tract Disease aka FLUTD, if you want to google it. It’s very serious.)

I went to a vet to have him seen. By that time Dream was already unable to walk anymore, which happened quickly over the course of a few hours and I did my best to get him seen as fast as possible. The vet said that I would have to leave Dream with them for an emergency procedure and so I left him there, so they could unblock the bladder and safe his life.
Sadly, when I came back to pick him up (after 2 days on a drip and catheter) I found out that the nurse managed to CUT his foreleg open - HOW?! - and tried to brush it off as a “minor scratch”: they had to fix him with five stitches. So much for a minor cut.

The nurses FAILED to inform me about what to do, what to expect over the next few days, or how best to treat him now, after I got him home. Instead she repeated over and over how they would be forced to put him down OR re-home him. She basically told me that they would treat him two more times for bladder blockage (despite saying that this is a recurring condition) and after that they would put him down for sure.

I was really angry and scared too. Back home he didn’t do better at all, even if the nurse claimed that he could “pee without trouble” and would be “alert and active”. The poor little kitten could not pee at all, but tried very bravely for about 17 minutes without a break. To no ends. When he finally managed to pee, his urine was full of blood and very clouded and thick. I tried to call the vet again, but they didn’t pick up and I started to worry even more.

In the end I took Dream to another vet, a private one further down the road. They were really friendly, and explained all I needed to know to help him, everything the nurse at the other vet didn’t explain to me at all.

Sadly the new vet will cost money, not millions, but too much for my budget. And Dream needs help RIGHT NOW
I can’t go back to the other cheaper vet, because

-They cut him and gave no good reason, made him worse instead of better
-They didn’t explain or help me find out how to treat him and care for him AT ALL
-They didn’t offer any sympathy or emotional support or care for my cat, instead they threatened to put him down as a first solution, not worst case scenario. It was mentioned so many times that I nearly started to cry. (the second vet said that Dream can be treated with meds and good care.)
-After three times coming to them with the same condition, they will forcefully take him away from me OR (the nurses fave and first option) put him down/put him to sleep.

The new vet will cost me about 150-200 to treat him and rescue his life. 

If any of you could help with a few dollars/euros/pounds -  that would be brilliant and mean the world to me and literally save little Dreams life!

Thank you so so much,

Tip Tuesday #115

Draw your own references if possible, even if you are not very skilled at drawing. Drawing the character out can help you understand the individual parts of the outfit and how they work together.

You may need to come up with the back of an outfit, or even the entire character design, and drawing can help you decide if your ideas will work or not. 

Impa #2 is dooone!!! For each of the photos I work on I wanna show a different part of the costume! In this one you can see how big that dang sheath and sword are… SO HEAVY hahhaa, and unfortunately my harness broke! Just another thing to fix for Otafest. Plus you can see the upper body better in this pic! Hope you guys like it <3 <3

Mr. Kitty: Help Save a Life

Hey everyone, lately I’ve seen an increase in people posting about fundraisers for their cats who have/had the same condition as Mr. Kitty. So, I would like to try and post this again to see if we can get a signal boost for Mr.Kitty’s cause.

Mr. Kitty was diagnosed with an urethral obstruction and elevated kidney values.  The obstruction caused his body to have a buildup of toxins. The levels in his kidneys were so high that the hospital’s machines couldn’t even detect how high they actually were. This caused the immediate need for medications, IV’s, and fluids. If he wasn’t treated immediate, Mr. Kitty would have not survived. 

This is a common problem for male cats. However, it is life threatening. Now, the direct cause for this problem isn’t known, but it is most commonly because of the cat’s diet, high stress in the home environment, or it can even be a chronic hereditary problem. In Mr. Kitty’s case, it is very likely that the cause is chronic. Meaning that when (not if) this happens again he will need very expensive surgery called Perineal Urethrostomy. Its a very invasive surgery where they reconstruct his genitalia to create a more female-like opening. 

But this past vet bill emptied my bank account, max out credit cards, and made me owe some people money. So, if the bill isn’t paid off, I wont have the means to give Mr.Kitty the life saving surgery should he need it.

For more of his story please check out his campaign fundraiser!

Unfortunately, I cant have a job due to a medical condition nor can I collect and income with anything. So, I have zero income coming in. I am trying to get my commission shop open, but that’s something that I cant rush or open prematurely (still need vital supplies in order to do commissions)

Currently, MrKitty is “recovering”  but he is showing signs that he may need to go back to the vet. And Im terrified of having to do that and learning he has another problem that cant be paid for. Unfortunately, if that happens, we will need to put Mr. Kitty down. And I don’t want that to happen. That’s why I need your help. I need help to save a life.

Anything helps. Donate. Share. Spread the word! Help save Mr.Kitty from this chronic problem.
