This is the Help Save the Life of Patsy Fund. The funds will be used to pay for a life-saving surgery for Patsy.

My husband and I adopted Patsy a year ago. She has been a great comfort to us during my husband's extended illness. She is a sweet, loving cat who never hisses or scratches. When my husband was laid off from his job due to a work slow-down last September, our income was cut in half. We are having difficulty paying for increased medical expenses on top of all our other expenses. When Patsy had a problem eating a month ago, we took her to the vet who discovered she had a hernia in her diaphragm. We elected to do a surgery to fix it since Patsy is only 3 years old and is otherwise in good health, and we love her. We used Care Credit and paid for the $2,500 surgery that way. After the surgery, she had breathing problems. We took her to the vet who had to do more tests and it was discovered she had fluid collecting in the sac around her heart and it would best for her to do another surgery which would cost another $2,500. By that time we had charged $3,100 to our Care Credit card for all the extra testing and procedures. We were unable to secure more funds on that card. United Animal Nations is paying $200.00 for one more treatment for her until we can find funding for her surgery. She is on Prednisone, and it seems to be helping prolong her life at least for the time being. We hope someone will think of helping Patsy have her surgery so that she will not have to be put down because we don't have the funds to get the necessary surgery. Once the funds are raised for Patsy, the check will be forwarded to our vet who will use it for Patsy's surgery. Thank you for thinking of our sweet cat whose life needs to be saved.
