This cute orange kitty is named Caligula. I took him in at ten weeks after the first family to adopt him couldn’t handle his hyperactivity. The kitten picture is actually him during his first week with me. After he grew out of his kitten months, he became one of the sweetest kitties I have ever encountered.
Unfortunately, a few months ago when play fighting with one of our other kitties he fell from the fridge and hit his leg, we rushed him to the vet but she did not think the leg was broken, and prescribed some metacam.
Periodically since then his leg will seem to be hurting him if he happens to land wrong after jumping. Today he managed to hurt his other leg when jumping from the kitchen counter. So I decided to make a campaign in attempts to raise money to help with his vet bills to figure out why he keeps hurting himself.
We simply need help covering the cost of his vet bills
Without help I won’t be able to get xrays done, and it pains me more than anything to see such a sweet creature repeatedly injuring himself.

Caligula will be so much happier thanks to you! The first time this happened he went to the vet right after and she gave him metacam, but through palpating his leg could not feel any sort of fracture, so she did not recommend the xrays be taken at that time.
However, since then he has repeatedly managed to hurt himself from small falls and I fear there is something wrong with a tendon, or one of his teeny tiny metatarsal bones. Or worse, I fear maybe he is doing damage to his femoral heads, a pretty common condition in large cats. It’s so frustrating to see him repeatedly hurting himself like this, and the metacam perscription does little.
Any little bit helps, if just 25 people donated 20 dollars we will reach our goal! If 500 people donated a dollar we would reach it just the same! Click HERE to view the campaign and donate.
Even if you can’t donate, please share this post! Thank you so much for any help. If you have absolutely any questions, please ask.
Guys I won’t start working until next month, so I can’t donate, but please spread this around if you can’t donate, or donate if you are able to. Thank you :)
