I cannot even tell you what your thoughts for Felix mean to me. I did a bit of checking, and the 2 places I did find that you can apply for a grant are so short on funds, they will only accept if you pet has a life-threatening illness. While Felix is in bad shape, it is not life-threatening, so no go there. Another place I found you can make a fund-raising page, but they take 7% of any funds. I am still looking at things. I am not sure they will do any surgery on Friday, because Felix is on anti-biotics for his UTI. At least I will get some ideas. I stopped looking his conditions up, because it made me feel even more terrible for him. He just finished a course of Onsior which is like ibuprofen, and the vet gave me tramadol for him. I just don't want to drug him up either. I was thinking I would try that at night to help him sleep. You know through all this, he is still so sweet, and squeaks at me for his lysine treats. I also will try to apply for Care Credit. I did once before when Tig had his blockage, but for some reason I could not get it at the time.
I am so overwhelmed with how great all of you are. You guys are what is helping me feel like it will be ok. I know there are other kitties that have severe illnesses, and are going through so much & surgeries & treatments -and I am not comparing it to what Felix has, but it did throw me when even the vet said she never saw anything like it. I am going to try & see if I can photograph his xray & post it on here. Not sure if it will work... anyways, thank you again for your support, and I will keep you posted.

You know we are always here for you and your kitties, especially for Felix right now...maybe you can do an auction like so many do here to raise money for their kitties...another one sit up an account at their vet for friends to mail a check to help pay for their kitties medical care or you set up a paypal account....maybe you could do something like that and keep working on other ways to get the money...we are always willing to help even if it is only small donation.
We sure are purring and praying that everything will work out for Felix and you find a way to get money to pay for his medical care. We all unfortunately eventually go through awful things with our kitties...so we all know how you are feeling and worrying about funds.
I took a picture of my dog Mia'a x rays and posted them on her page...so I think it will work here...
hang in there, be strong for Felix and know you have a lot of support and love from all of us, as always you are not alone...
I'll be sending lotsa purrs!
