Bud the cat is a handsome, laid back boy who belongs to a young man who is a full-time grad student at the Scripps Research Institute. One day, Bud began to struggle to urinate… His owner took him to the veterinarian and drained his savings hospitalizing Bud. Unfortunately catheterization didn’t work; Bud would need a Perineal Urethrostomy to save his life. His ‘dad’ was devastated. He had no money left to pay for Bud’s emergency surgery. Fortunately, FACE was able to help give this cute cat a second chance at life.
