Please Help Save Mojo




My name is David Zarzecki, and Mojo is my cat...

He's 5 years old...

And without surgery, he's going to die...

Mojo has Feline Lower Urinary Tract Disease (FLUTD) which means crystals form in his bladder, and cause blockages which prevent him from urinating. If it's not treated, the toxins will build up in his blood and kill him, or his bladder may burst first, with the same results...

From the onset of a blockage, this can happen in as little as 24 hours...

I'm asking for your help in getting Mojo the treatment he needs, because I am out of options...

I've recently become unemployed, and although I've been managing to make ends meet by scraping by, a bit over a week ago Mojo had to be hospitalized for treatment of his FLUTD, and the vet bills were almost $1000. I managed to beg, borrow, and practically steal the funds for his care, but next time I won't have the resources the vet to treat him...

And he will die...

  1. uhm My cat had the same thing.He got a massive blockage and almost died, my vet saved him and 700 dollars later whoa. but hey, my cat is alive, and 7 years later, still good and happy and healthy. How did this happend? Well my vet put him on a strict diet called c/d® Multicare Feline.
    I don't see why your cat would get sick again or die, you need to put him on this food that your vet recommends, and if he doesn't, i seriously would consider another vet. Your vet should know about this food. And if he doesn't, he's only pretending he doesn't. Somone wants money.

    I have a friend that had the same thing happened and he refused to change the food, what happened? 6 months later the cat got sick. please ask your vet about this http://tinyurl.com/clct5v but best the cans.

    You need to provide your cat with fresh filtered water every day, put extra bowls of water in the house, one in the bedroom and one in the kitchen. Also wet food, any type or brand of wet food. maybe not the whiskas type or that crap. But the point is to keep your cat hydrated and have him drink water. The key thing is that the dry food has to be the CD and nothing else. Nothing with fiber.

  2. my cat had a blockage about 7-8 years ago. the advice i got from the vet was to get him better quality food. for a while i used the purina urinary tract health food (available in most stores, and non-prescription) and now i feed him nutro max cat indoor cat dry food and a small can of the nutro max cat wet food a day. he hasn't had a problem since. however, your cat has a recurring problem, so you may have to go with the C/D prescription food.

    good luck and i hope mojo can get through it ^_^

  3. May I suggest displaying a counter to show current contribution levels? I think it might inspire more donations. Good luck! Karla

  5. We nearly lost our big Siamese mix to this years back. Like others have said - food is a big issue. The key is low ash. Most commercial cat foods mix ash into the food as filler (why I don't know other than they are cheap jerks). Find the food with the absolute lowest ash content you can get. We currently use 9 Lives Plus Care (lower ash and cheaper than what the vet originally recommended). We also invested in a cat fountain. Having fresh, cool, flowing (aerated) water helps make sure our cat drinks enough. Hope everything works out!
