My cat Lewis is one of my closest friends. Today I learned he has about 48 hours to live without emergency treatment, which will cost $1500. If I fail to treat him today, I will lose my cat. If you can help me get closer to this goal, I'd be thankful.

I'm Kody, and my cats Lewis and Handbananna were born under my apartment about two years ago. Since then, Handbananna has grown into a hulking jock son, and Lewis into a curious prodegy who has learned to operate light switches and sort of fly a drone.

Two weeks ago my team was laid off with over $27,000 in back pay still due from our partners. Around then, Lewis started having difficulty urinating, but my lack of a vehicle and financial situation made it difficult to get in to see a vet. Today a friend helped me take Lewis in to be seen after seeing his condition rapidly deteriorate yesterday.

According to the vet, my cat Lewis has a urethral blockage that will be fatal within 48 hours if not treated. The procedure costs $1500, and after being laid off, I can't afford to keep my cat and my apartment. I'm going to be spending today doing whatever I can to reduce the cost of the procedure and call assistance organizations to ask for help meeting the cost.

If anyone is able to help me keep Lewis, I will continue to share his adventures and incredible capacity for curiosity and learning with the world. I'll be posting information here about his treatment and outcome.
