Hello! My name is ORZO! This is my life saving fundraising page!
I am an adorable 3 year old black and white male tuxedo cat found on the NYC streets alone and scared. I had appeared to be in pain and not walking correctly. A group of humans (animal control) took me off the streets and brought me to a loud and frightening place called the Brooklyn ACC (animal shelter). I was given x rays there to check for fractures that were causing my limping, and while I was there I began to develop nasal and ocular congestion, anemia, and a lack of appetite. Suddenly my condition became critical. I completely stopped eating. This is very bad for me and my little body. They did many tests on me there and all of it really freaked me out. The shelter humans sent out many pleas to animal rescue organizations to help me get out of the shelter and into a suitable emergency animal hospital. Luckily on January 21, 2020, a kind group of cat loving people at the Felines For Adoption Cat Rescue saved my life! If no rescue pulled me out of the shelter that day I likely was going to be put to sleep the next day!
I left the shelter and I was rushed to a well established NYC emergency veterinary hospital called The Animal Medical Center. I am getting the best care I can get from a lot of good people and veterinarians. At the AMC I have received oxygen and fluids, antibiotics and a lot of supportive care to help me feel better. I needed many tests including x-rays, blood tests, ultrasounds, and daily monitoring,
As of 1/24/20 I am still not eating on my own. I will have to now be placed under sedation (which is risky in my current state) and have a feeding tube inserted into my belly. This will help me to also possibly leave AMC
On 1/25/20 I left the hospital and went home with my rescue and they are taking great care of me as I require a lot of TLC. If my body continues to fight the viral infection that I caught in the SHELTER, I will survive and they will help me find a purrrrever home!
My rescue has spent their entire annual veterinary budget just on me....please help them continue to help me and other urgent kitties in shelters just like me in 2020~
Every dollar and every share will HELP!
Orzo was discharged from the hospital on 1/25/20
The AMC is the best place for Orzo and his current medical condition! The quality of care that only the AMC can provide comes at a high price with a care estimate well over $5000...
Please help us to continue to provide the care that Orzo needs to survive and make a donation (tax deductible) to our non-profit 501c3 organization Felines For Adoption Cat Rescue!
