It’s not often I do this and never before on my blog but there is a lady and a kitty who need your urgent help.
In short, Rina woke up one day last week and saw that her kitty Powahton had one enlarged pupil … he was not in pain or any discomfort but it troubled her so much that she made an appointment with an emergency vet (not cheap) who told her not to worry much about it unless his behaviour changed and to get him to a kitty eye specialist.
Rina and her husband are, like us, of modest means. They live in rented accommodation having five rescue cats and a dog. In the shittiest luck ever, their home is being foreclosed on and they have to get out before Christmas, finding a new place. This was the last financial straw. Despite this, Rina (marvellous lady), scraped together the dollars, taking loans out from friends and family to see the (very expensive) eye specialist.
The eye specialist told her that Pohawton’s lens had slipped and he needed an operation. The operation is a choice between removing the lens, retaining some of his sight or removing the eye, making him half-blind. It cannot be left as it will start to cause him unmentionable pain over time.
They don’t have the money for either operation, although they now have a cheaper quote from their vet for eye removal. Rina is desperate to save some of her kitty’s sight (he is a roughty-toughty indoor-outdoor, loving-his-owner-to-death type kitty).
Unused to asking for help, she hesitated and I told her to go for it, she had nothing to lose.
Not everyone who reads this blog has the ability to help pay for this, but if every person who read this blog in the last week readers donated a dollar, Powahton would have enough money for his lens removal.

Please help if you can and if you can’t please could I ask you to share?
Thank you, from the bottom of my heart.
