Help Kota to be happy and walk again!

Hip Dysplasia operation / Vet fees

Unfortunately, this project was not successful

Hello,

My name is Kota,

I am a Maine Coon breed cat. I should be 2 years old in August.

Before my illness showed up, I was very happy and a very young Cat. I am still young. But I have a hip dyspasia...  
As I am the Maine Coon, I grow till I am 4 years old so I'm still in my growing progress. But now I have trouble with my hip...

I need an operation which will allow me to walk and live normally - free of pain. For now I barely can walk, even going to the toilet is very difficult so I prefer to not eat in case I would need to go.

My disease is progressing very fast. Just few months ago I was so proud - for the first time I managed to jump onto the kitchen worktop! Every night I slept with my Owners in bed... I loved to run after the laser's light and jump onto my tower... I was normal one year old cat, full of joy and sparkle... Now... My legs shake and hurt so much that I hardly stand up... With every move I feel how my bones crack one onto another, causing me the excruciating pain... 

And I'm just two years old... 

==========================================

Hello, 

My name is Dom.
I am the owner of Kota  and a Cat passionate person who always puts my Kota before me and sometimes before my Wife too (please don't tell her that).

Kota is an almost all white Maine Coon (almost because on the tail she has a cream/yellow mark - like on the snow in winter). I remember when we were looking for a cat and we found Kota ... I still have an email from her breeder that said she had only that one cat... and she sent us her picture...

When I looked at her, I said: this is SnowFlake and she will be our cat!  My wife said I should wait untill we will get her or at least untill we'll meet her, but I knew... I even put her picture as my wallpaper on my mobile... I felt something special from this cat... I felt that she was special... And so she is...

I still remember when we went to see her for the first time... My wife took her and in that moment we already knew she is ours, it was so magical - she was purring all the time when we were visiting her, like she was trying to say " You will be my humans! prepare! pet me, stroke me, and I will allow you to serve me". 

I had already 3 cats before, one past away after cancer. After I had two rescue cats, they were amazing! I lost them all... But  Kota...

We always wanted to have a cat which will come and sit on your knees, which will give you hugs when you are sad,  jump on your hands when you are angry and everything would dissapear...

 She was sleeping with us every night.... in bed... between me and my wife, next to us, in legs... Just to be with us! She loves us and we love her! But now she can't as the bed is to high... We placed our mattressess on the floor so she could try to come to us... But still it is too hard for her. Now she is only on the floor... 

Kota is a wonderfull Cat. She is an "angel Cat"... When my wife and I were arguing, she used to come, lay herself down in the middle of us, touching both... Every person who has cats will understand... There is something about them... They make your bad emotions dissapear... They make you a happier and better person...

 Maybe you will take me as a crazy person but for us she is an equal member of our Family, and she is an "older sister" to our Baby Girl, watching after her constantly... 

But for now it is she who need to be looked after... 
She cannot walk, she tries to move around but she strugles alot and she is in big pain.  She meows and cries from pain and she tries to sleep but you can see that the pain does not allow her to do that...

Even though she is so ill, Kota purrs all the time when we stroke her... She tries to greet us whenever we come back from work... Even though she suffers...

I had three cats... And lost them all... I coudn't help them, I did what I could, but lost them. You should see my Baby's smile, whenever she sees Kota... It is heartbreaking... Knowing she is so young, still not properly grown yet... Remembering how lively, funny and energetic she was... Before... And it only took few months... 

She almost does not have a hip bone, you could feel her bones cracking every time you touch her... She does not want to eat or drink...

She needs help... She needs an operation which will help her to be as she was in the past, very cheerful and happy cat. But I cannot afford to pay for it...

Please help us.

Thank You!
