This beautiful cat is Abel! Abel was suffering from a urinary blockage and had to go to the vet for treatment. Sadly, he became re-obstruced within 24 hours and needed a perineal urethrostomy (a surgery that permanently opens up the urethra in cats prone to blockages).
Urinary blockages are a common condition in male cats, but can quickly become life-threatening when a cat is unable to urinate.
Money was tight for Abel’s family, so with the help of a FACE grant, he was able to get the surgery he needed to live a normal life again.
Abel’s family reports that he is now home and recovering well from his surgery!
