Louie urgently needs your help!!!

Main image
  Auckland

In the weekend my daughters cat Louie was hit by a car. He's suffered a fractured tail bone, and due to the location of the fracture - is now enduring bladder and rectum issues due to nerve swelling. He's strong young boy and is fighting hard, so we want to give him the best chance we can. He's improving slowly but he needs more time and we have run out of money. My daughter has been suffering from mental health issues for some time now and Louie is everything to her. He's a "therapy cat". To lose him would traumatic for my daughter, and she's beside herself at the thought. Any donation at all would be appreciated, no matter how big or how small. The total invoice so far is $725.20, however its obviously increasing.

***EDIT*** 19/11/19 - Been to see Louie this evening and he's made improvements. He's booked for a specialist appointment tomorrow and will need an ultra-sound ($400-500) to see where exactly the problem is. After the appointment we will have a better idea of potential costs should we raise enough to afford them. Could be looking at up to 8k, we will find out tomorrow. A MASSIVE thank you to everyone who has donated so far, but please keep sharing - so we can afford get our little Louie home.

Any unused funds will be donated to Auckland cat rescues.

Latest update

The week so far...   22 November 2019

First and foremost many blessings to all of you that have supported us to help Louie come home, we are truly grateful ♥

We took Louie to see a specialist and for now he won't be having surgery..the fracture has caused the nerves that tell him when to pee to malfunction so this is our main concern at the moment.

He has been spending the daytime at the vets so he can have his pain and anti-inflammatory medication and have his bladder manually emptied twice a day and we have been bringing him home in the evenings and he is so happy to be at home and is very hesitant to get back in it in the morning but it is a habit he will have to get used to until the nerves mend enough for the signal to get through, hopefully sooner rather than later. On a more positive note he had a poo this morning which he hasn't had since the accident which gives me hope for a full recovery.

We will have more invoices/receipts after this weekend which I will post up so you can see what your generosity has done to help Louie.

Thank you so much everyone you are all awesome ♥
