BOBO need a surgery for the Perineal urethrostomy (P.U. surgery) ASAP!! Please help me to save Bobo's life.

Bobo is a 3 years old indoor male neutered American Shorthair cat. I first adopt him in an animal shelter at Manhattan New York. I was told that he was six month old at that time. So I gave him April 2nd 2010 as his birthday which is six month prior I adopt him.

Recently Bobo has been suffer from the Urinary Blockage since I discovered that peed outside of the litter box and seems like having a difficult time on peeing on March 31st. I was worried and so I send him into BluePearl Veterinarian in Forest Hill, Queens at the midnight for emergency treatment. The vet told me that Bobo's bladder was large and firm which indicates he was unable to urinate normally. So he has to do the Catheter IV treatment to help him to get all the urine out from his bladder, and that also require two day hospitalization in there to make sure he can return to normal and can produce urine by himself. This emergency treatments cost me about 2000 dollars. As a student, I have used up mostly all my saving of this few years, but I am willing to pay for it as long as BOBO could be healthy again.

Until this morning (4/2/2013), which is after 48 hours that Bobo has lived with catheter in the vet, the vet called me and told me that they removed the urinary catheter to see if Bobo can urine by himself. He did once, but ever since then he was just trying and trying but still unable to produce a large and complete stream. The vet and I were concern that bobo is must likely re-block again by the crystals in his bladder and as if bobo could not produce the urine out by himself, there is a large risk that his kidney function might be damaged and might even cause death just in few days.

The vet suggest to do the PU surgery for Bobo which is like to remove Bobo's penis and recreate a new hole for him so he could urine normally. However, this surgery in BluePearl cost from 3383 up to 5383 dollar so we decided to go back to our original vet which is Manhattan Vet Specialist which has a more reasonable cost from around 1500 up to 2000 dollar, but unfortunately as a student and after all the treatment earlier I have done for Bobo in BluePearl, I can not afford another cost like this anymore. Therefore I am gratefully asking if there is anyone who is willing to donate a little to help BOBO to pass through this hard time for me and for him. Any amount will benefit for saving his life.
