Meet Rano, our brave little 1+ y/o that we adopted a year ago.
He has been diagnosed with Feline Lower Urinary Tract Disease (FLUTD) and is undergoing treatment at our local vet in Singapore.
Normally within 24 hours of a blockage in a cat’s urinary tract, death can come in anytime by a heart attack but this little guy managed to survive though that. The vet managed to get his heart rate at a stable level but his urine was still very bloody.
The vet managed to remove the plug that caused a blockage in his bladder and had to put in a urinary catheter at his penis so that his pee was able to come out easily.
After 4 days of staying in the vet, Rano started looking better and he was able to walk and move around. We got a green light from the vet as he started peeing even after the removal of the catheter and he was finally discharged.
However, after 3 days of being at home, he loss his appetite, struggled to pee and even started shivering when trying to pee.
We rushed him to the vet asap and the vet mentioned that his bladder was inflamed and it’s not looking good. The vet gave me 2 options, he recommended a surgery to remove his penis and create a bigger hole for his urine to come out and this would cost $2,000-$3,000 which was way over my budget or a similar treatment which involves the urinary catheter to help him pee.
The surgery was definitely the better option but I am only a 21 y/o girl living with my single mom and brother. It was getting tough on us as the first treatment had already cost $1,575.81 (paid).
Now, we need another $2k-$3k and I cried so much telling the vet i couldn’t afford the surgery and had to opt for the treatment at the vet...
It sucks knowing I couldn’t give my cat the best treatment he needs and knowing I couldn’t give him what he deserves. I wish I was rich enough to afford the surgery for him. I truly do. It pains me so much to see him in this condition and it hurts to not be able to do anything better for him.
Hence, if anyone out there is able to help me give Rano the surgery he needs, we would really appreciate it from the bottom of our hearts. Please help him 😔
