Our cat Spaghetti had been throwing up after every meal for around 24 hours. We took him to the vet only to discover that rather than having a minor issue like an inflamed stomach, he actually has a serious congenital problem that could kill him.
His lower intestine has wrapped around the sack containing his heart and gotten stuck there, causing him severe irritation. He’s had this since birth, but it’s taken us two years to discover it because we’ve never had him x-rayed before.
The surgical costs for getting this corrected were beyond our price range, but thanks to our friends, family, and fans we were able to raise the money to perform the surgery in less than TWO hours. It was a miracle. I’ll never forget it.
Sadly we still need to cover the cost for diagnosing Spaghetti with this problem, as well as the costs for hospitalizing and treating him overnight. This is a much smaller amount, but it will still be a huge dent in our bank account unless we can raise it via our GoFundMe.
If you can spare anything, please do donate at the Save Our Spaghetti GoFundMe page, as it will go towards giving Spaghetti the long and full life he deserves.
I’m praying he’ll make it through surgery okay. He’s one of the nicest pets I’ve ever had. He made me fall in love with cats, and I used to be adamant that I did not care for them. But he wakes me up every morning and talks to me while I’m working and even now I miss having him in my lap to snuggle with.
