Hi everyone,

Toby is currently 6 months old. We found him by the side of the road this summer, skinny, sick, and scared, and took him home with us. Since then, he lives as a house cat with us and his lil girlfriend Bea.

When my fiancée and I found him, he had big problems with digestion, and after he got better, we noticed that he was breathing heavily. We didn't do anything right away - we were convinced that it would pass and that it was an after effect of the digestive problems we had been fighting with for a whole month.

Sadly, the breathing problems continued and after lots of vet appointments and tests, it is finally determined that he has diafragmatic hernia. That means that his organs are located in his lungs and his lungs therefore only work partially and are, at this point, very damaged. This can also be seen in the X-ray photo I added, the lungs should be hollow, but they are not, instead there is a whole lot of organs in their place. For this reason, he struggles a lot when breathing and at certain moments he begins to wheeze loudly and breathe through his mouth.

My fiancée and I are both employed, but with the many expenses and debts we already have, we are unable to pay for the surgery completely.

The operation costs 4000HRK / 530€ and if it is not performed, Tobys condition is life-threatening and will probably get worse soon. Even though the chances of a successful operation are very little, we are willing to take the risk and want to provide him with the quality of life he deserves.

Even the smallest donation would make a difference, so we can afford the surgery and hopefully make Toby healthy again.

We would truly be forever grateful if anyone could chip in and help us through this journey!

Thank you forever, sincerely

Toby, Beatrix, Filip & Irena

Pozdrav svima,

Naš Toby trenutno ima otprilike 6 mjeseci. Pronašli smo ga ljetos kraj ceste, mršavog, bolesnog i prestrašenog i ponijeli ga sa sobom kući. Od tada živi kao kućni mačak s nama i svojom malom curkom Beom.

Kad smo ga zaručnik i ja pronašli, imao je velikih problema s probavom, te smo nakon što mu je bilo bolje primijetili da teško diše. Nismo ništa odmah poduzimali – bili smo uvjereni da će proći i da je to posljedica probavnih problema s kojima se borio punih mjesec dana.

Nažalost, problemi s disanjem nisu prošli i nakon brojnih pregleda i pretraga, utvrđeno je da ima dijafragmalnu herniju. Ukratko, to znači da su se njegovi organi povukli u prsni koš te stoga pluća rade samo djelomično. To se vidi i na fotografiji rendgena, pluća bi trebala biti šuplja, ali nisu, umjesto toga na njihovom su mjestu ostali organi. Zbog ovoga se Toby jako muči pri disanju i u određenim trenucima počinje hripati i disati na usta.

I moj zaručnik i ja smo zaposleni, ali uz brojne troškove i dugove koje već imamo, nismo u mogućnosti u potpunosti platiti operaciju.

Operacija košta 4000 kn / 530 €, a ako se ne obavi, Tobijevo stanje je opasno po život i vjerojatno će se uskoro pogoršati. Iako su šanse za uspješnu operaciju vrlo male, mi smo spremni preuzeti rizik i želimo mu omogućiti kvalitetu života kakvu zaslužuje.

I najmanja donacija puno nam znači te se nadamo da će Toby preživjeti operaciju i ponovno biti zdrav.

Zaista bismo bili zauvijek zahvalni ako bi se itko mogao uključiti i ikako nam pomoći.

Hvala hvala hvala,

Toby, Beatrix, Filip & Irena
