Anyone love cats and have lots of money to spare?

Postby tireesix » Fri Sep 24, 2010 9:58 am

Ok, so I could be joking, but I m not, well, sorta.

We have this cat who adopted us, he is really sick, in dire need of an operation otherwise he is going to be put down, we can't afford it, the local charities have said that due to his condition and the amount of money it would take to put him right (thats if he survives), they would have no choice but to put him down, so we are kinda of stuck in the situation where we are skint, can't get the money and this cat is depending on us cos otherwise he is going to die.

Anyone know of anyone who might be able to help? We have tried Tail Waggers, the PDSA said we have to be registered at their vets for 3 months before treatment and even then, it wouldn't cover what he needs, RSPCA said they would have to take custody of him but then they would put him down anyway, CPL just leads us in circles........... Oh, and the vets we have seen are obsessed with being pain up front.

I don't want him to die just because we are skint. he is called Wretch-Ed, he has severe mouth ulceration caused by calicivirus, its apparently one of the most painful conditions a cat can have, removal of all teeth can be 80-90% effective but we can't afford it. If we don't find the money in the next few weeks we will have no choice but to have him put down.

We have already spent about £400 in the past 4 months on mange treatment, tests, antibiotics, pain relief and we can't keep it up.

I was going to keep distant, you know, don't get too close etc etc etc, but he is adorable and lovely and trusting and he hated people to begin with and now he just follows me everywhere and I don't want to let him down.

So, any ideas???????????

Hi Tireesix, I love cats and have 2 both rescue. My eldest one Phoebe is 14 now and she had calici when she was tiny (4 weeks old) and we had to feed her by syringe. I wish I could send you the money you need for Wretch-Ed but I have none either.

I have no idea of were you could go other tan the places you have already tried, only thing I thought of was an appeal in your local paper :dunno: :dunno: you might find someone willing to sponsor him. :hugs:

Wretch was put to sleep a couple of hours ago. It sucks. Thank you for replying though!

Despite everything he went through, he was so good, he was only with us 5 months tops but I feel like my heart has been ripped out. He was so sick, he had been so badly treated, he wouldn't even let us near him to begin with and I was actually happy when he scratched me the first time cos it meant he had actually allowed me close enough to him to be scratched. Once he trusted me he was the most loving cat in spite of everything and he deserved so much more.

I am just glad he had a good home at the end.

Hi

I feel very sorry for the cat which has been going through severe trauma.There are many Animal welfare units especially like International units like International Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care Symposium. I suggest you to contact them and follow their advice.

He died, there was nothing anyone could do, he suffered a terrible illness from which it is rare for a cat to recover from. It doesn't sit well with me, had I seen a different vet earlier I might have been able to raise the money for an operation but even that isn't a guarantee. We just didn't have enough time, he was in such a bad way when he arrived..........
