Our Friend Coco

This is our friend Coco. She is a 1 year 7 months old, and is very tiny weighing only 6lbs.
Coco was adopted from a shelter by a family friend. She is very cuddly and likes to sleep in bed with her family.
About a week and half ago her mom noticed something was wrong with she started having accidents outside of the litter box and her urine was a light brown color. She had several accidents that night, so her mom took her to the vet. The vet ran a urinalysis and blood work on her and said there was a VERY high whiteblood cell count and ALOT of crystals in her urine. They diagnosed her with Urinary Tract Infection, and Coco was sent home on antibiotics. The first week was good, Coco was going to her litter box and eating normal again.
But over the weekend, her mom saw her urinating on the carpet again, and noticed it was PINK! They rushed her over to the vet again who kept her for X-Rays, which showed two stones in her bladder each the size of a jelly bean. Doctor recommended surgery ASAP, but the surgery is very expensive and her mom is worried about how they will pay for the bill.
She doesn't have a blog, but please keep Coco and her family in your purrs and prayers.
I will be holding either an auction or a raffle in the next few days to try to help raise some money for the outrageous vet bills.
Here are some pictures of our friend Coco.

Oh, poor Coco. This is a terrible thing to happen to any kitty. We hope she will be able to have the surgery and get well.

She's really cute.

Oh Coco, I hope you feel better soon. That's exactly what happened to me a couple of years ago. But first they tried some stone-dissolving food for a month, but that did not work. I had the surgery and had to stay in the hospital for 2 nights. It was No Fun, but I have not had that problem since then.
