Tiggy is begging for your help to pay his medical bills so he can come home to his mommy and daddy where he is so loved and spoiled!

Tigger is our 6, almost 7 year old precious baby boy kitty. He was raised with his sister, Sadie our 7 year old beagle-terrier and he has such an amazing personality! He is outgoing, fearless and so very friendly!

He has a history of UTI's and asthma and up until now things have been managable. Friday morning I got up early for work and noticed that he was uncomfortable, and ended up taking him to the vet Friday night where he was diagnosed with a UTI from stress (from changing his food.) I went to work (midnights at my 2nd job) and when I came home I noticed a huge change in his behavior. He hadn't urinated in 12 hours and he just screamed every time he moved. I am a nurse and knew that this was bad.

My only option was to take him to the emergency clinic where he was diagnosed with an obstrution and kidney failure. He is currently planned to stay until at least monday with IV fluids and a catheter, which is draining blood. This cat is loved like our child, and with the economy the way it is I cannot get a credit card and I have noone to ask for help. I support my family... My entire family and have to do so by working 2 jobs while going to school for my Master's in Nursing.

If I hadn't taken Tiggy to the hospital when I did, he would have died within hours. I still don't know if his kidney's will recover. They expect payment at discharge and I already gave them my car payment money for the month. I can't put a price on the life and suffering of a memeber of my family. Any help would be so greatly appreciated... I take care of people all day long and I truly believe that there are self-less caring people out there and I promise to pay it all forward.

Estimated total was $1500 and I just found out that he will be having to stay another day with the fluids and catheter - which will be at least another $400.
