This is a picture of Julius, he followed me home one day on my way back from work and has been my best friend ever since. I was going through a low in my life when I met him and I believe he’s the reason I’m still here today. I can’t put it down to anything other than him. He saved me, so I have to save him.
He currently has a respiratory tract infection the vet thinks is caused by ulcers in his throat. He dribbles from his nose, his eyes constantly water, he coughs up mucus and he struggles to keep down food.
Apparently RTI’s usually pass within a few weeks but it’s been nearly 2 months and the situation doesn’t seem to be getting better. We have already had one check up with the vet which was £35 by itself just to get him looked at. She told us that it will cost around £70 for a months worth of antibiotics and an additional £35 for another check up (basically a fee for him to sit in the vets office). This may not seem like much but I’m only 17 and still in college and it’s just me and my mum, she cannot afford something like this. She already works so hard to support me through college and I can’t expect her to pay this amount of money, it’s just out of the question.
It is breaking my heart to see my baby in the state he’s in, and I fear I can’t leave it much longer.
I understand how low I’m stooping begging for money on here and I don’t know how many people use this site or if this will get read at all, but to anybody that might see this who may have even have 50p to spare, I’m begging you please find it in your heart to help me save my best friend
P.s I think I may have put up the same picture twice, sorry, I’m not familiar with the site mechanics
