This is a fundraiser for Sebastian the kitten my husband found in the street while working. When he found him he was all alone and covered in fleas and very thin (1lb)! The biggest problem is his Eyes. They were crusted shut and not able to open. We took him to the vet the day after he was brought home. He has a viral infection likely from his mother (Herpes). This affected his eyes and respiratory system. He was put on 3 medicines that he takes several times a day. When I asked the Vet about his eyes she said she couldn't gaurantee anything without seeing his eyes. He has been on meds since last Friday. His eyes are still currently closed at this time. We are hopeful they will open but we will still have at least a couple more visits even if they do open. I want to make it known this will all be used for the Sebastian and any leftover will go to help local shelters and rescues! I will update as he progresses! Thanks so much!!
Update from day of surgery:The Dr at MSU originally gave me the option to keep the one eye and try to treat it knowing it would be heavily scared and potential to rupture like the other eye. The risk of it rupturing was greater than healing. And honestly the thought of having to come back and go thru it again made me nervous. So after having them leave and give me 5 min to way the options I choose to remove both eyes. After sugery was completed the Dr told me I made the right choice there was a rupture on the back of the eye and it would not have been good! Whew! I felt so bad having to do them both(which costs more too) but health wise it worked out better. She says he didn't have clear vision out of the better eye if anything possible shadows and light/dark. So he will go back to see his girls at MSU in 2 weeks to get stitches removed and for now he has to wear his cone and adjust!
