Cosmo collapsed and nearly didn't make it to this day. I rushed him to the vet to discover his bladder was close to bursting. He had severe inflammation and bleeding in his urinary tract due to a very bad case of FLUTD. Poor Cosmo had a very resistant bacterial infection and an incredibly large buildup of struvite crystals in his bladder. He has spent two weeks hospitalized in intensive care at a 24-hour vet clinic. It’s been a rollercoaster ride and we are hopeful he won’t need surgery.
I first rescued Cosmo on January 28, 2020. We found him dying of pneumonia, starvation and dehydration. He was an adult cat that had spent all his life on the streets. A series of tests were run, including a CT scan and x-rays, to discover the cause of his initial collapse. He had a respiratory infection, neurological damage and at some point, must have survived being hit by a car as his pelvic bones had healed from multiple fractures.
After several months of medical care, Cosmo recovered. He showed his gratitude by asking me for cuddles. He slowly transformed from a feral cat to a playful house cat. Cosmo formed friendships with my other rescue cats and dogs, learning to play with them. My youngest rescue kitty, Miu, loves to snuggle up with Cosmo at bedtime.
Cosmo’s veterinary bills have piled up. Ultrasounds, blood tests, urinary tests, expensive medicine and hospitalization. I have brought him home and am taking care of some of his nursing myself now, however he still needs vet check-ins to make sure the bladder stones don’t come back. I have taken in multiple rescues over the years, making it hard for me to cover these unexpected costs.
Every euro counts, so if you can donate even 1 euro, thank you!
