Meet “Pips” a handsome one-year-old Russian Blue mix who loves spending time with his “mom” and kitty brother. One day, this normally energetic and talkative cat began hiding and lying around, so his worried mom took him to the Pet Emergency & Specialty Center where they saw he had a urinary blockage. Pips needed an emergency perineal urethrostomy. Without the surgery, Pips’ bladder could rupture! Pips’ mom was unable to pay for the surgery due to previous veterinary expenses and student loan debt. She contacted FACE and was thrilled when we were able to help get Pips the lifesaving surgery he needed! Now Pips gets to enjoy a long and happy life!
