Story

My 50th Birthday is coming up soon, rather than expensive parties, presents and everything that goes with that milestone, I want something different. I want to give the this gorgeous 5 month old kitten, Eddie (Eduardo) the chance he deserves.

Eddie came to Feral Cats of Balsall Heath with a broken pelvis after being hit by a car and now needs specialist surgery, which will be in the region of £3000

His “owner” took him to the pdsa and they gave him pain relief and instructed strict cage rest. Sadly she soon lost interest and wasn’t providing the care he needed, allowing him to drag himself around (the injury initially causes hind leg lameness). Amy did a great job at working to get Eddie surrendered to her and we agreed at Kings Heath Cat Rescue to take over his care. I am a volunteer for Kings Heath Cat Rescue, and I can't tell you all the amazing things this not for profit has accomplished over the 5 years.

Eddie was not healing as we would expect for a fractured pelvis so we took him to be re-xrayed and for a specialist orthopedic vet opinion.

Eddie's pelvis is broken in 4 places. Due to his owner not carrying out the correct care initially the four pieces of pelvis have collapsed in on themselves, moving his spine to a difficult position and narrowing his intestine making toileting difficult. This however has really improved with the right medication so we are now hopeful that we will be able to manage this post surgery.

The only option apart from euthanasia is experimental external fixation surgery.

As Eddie is such a placid and friendly cat we think he is a good candidate for the surgery and want to give him the best chance. Despite his injuries this lad is able to walk and is very playful so has a great quality of life.

His surgery is booked for 23rd November and the vets at West Midlands Referrals as ever have offered us a massive discount but the surgery is still an eye watering £3000. White Cross vets have been amazing too, offering us the understanding to treat Eddie whilst still working on our existing vet bills.

We know we can do this with your help, every donation no matter how small makes all the difference. This would truly make all the difference to Eduardo, and to me.

    Eddie had his operation today. He's a little sore, which is expected. The operation was quite long, and he had to have his pelvis refractured in 3 places. Despite him being sore, and a little uncomfortable, he is still an amazing little guy and is still purring away. Your donations have given him the chance at a future. The future we and now you believe in. Thank you!
