Little miss Luna is a rescue cat we have. We adopted her last year in March as her mother abandoned her at 5 weeks old.
We had to teach her how to eat proper, use the litter box, sharpen her claws, etc. She ended up becoming best buds with our other cat a Maine Coon. He continued to teach her how to cat and its been wonderful.
Back in May, we took her in as we seen she was limping and we all thought she had a broken foot. Turns out, it wasn’t broken and we couldn’t find any damage. So we got kitty advil and were told soft damage.
A couple weeks ago, we went back in as he limp got way worse. Turns out, she fractured the head of her femur and requires an FHO surgery.
A femoral head ostectomy (FHO) is a surgical procedure that removes the head and neck from the femur. FHO surgery is performed to alleviate pain. It is a salvage procedure, reserved for condition where pain can not be alleviated in any other way.
We tried to go through insurance, but turns out, she was born with a condition that caused this. So because it is pre existing, they will not cover it. In turn we are left to pay for this out of pocket.
Im trying to raise the money so it doesn’t leave me financially screwed. Especially as I am currently between jobs, and on assistance.
I thank you all for what you can do, and would appreciate if the word got around.
