We expect Midnight’s bill to go upwards of $600, if we have to remove her eye. Images below may make you uncomfortable.
We got a call on Sunday (Nov 1) about Midnight’s condition from our volunteer hall coordinator, about Midnight being unable to close her eye.
We immediately trapped her and made preparations to make sure that she was able to receive vet care as soon as possible.
Midnight has had a serious ulcer in her eye – which has contributed to an increased eye pressure since the last academic year. That, combined with her kidney and liver issues and her high blood pressure, make her at risk of blindness in her right eye.
Midnight is now completely blind in the right eye. She is now on anti-inflammatory medicine and is now boarded at the vet.
We considered having her eye removed – but it would take $350.00 for us to do so, coupled with her hospitalisation. Either way, the bill will cost upwards of $500-600. This is money we don’t have.
Midnight, in better times
We’ve had several cases since the school year started – most recently with Bobby, Robbie and Champion – and our funds are currently very low. Even with the recent gift from Silversky, we only have enough to purchase one or two more months of food, our main operating cost.
We want to care for the campus cats, and we’ve put the welfare of the campus cats behind every decision that we make. We’re not like any other CCA in NTU, CCAs that just meet once per week and plan events and outreach – we do real work taking care of the cats on campus, work that happens every day.
But we may soon be unable to do so.
