Strikes the Cat Strikes the Cat





Strikes, the cat, fights for his life against bladder stones and urinary crystals in Missouri.

Success Story
Cat or Dog


Strikes, the Missouri cat, suffers from urinary crystals and stones. The whole thing struck when his owner, a disabled single mother, changed food for something on sale. It’s such a simple mistake, and the description on the food package seems close enough to the other food she’d been giving her cats that she really had no idea the effects would be so extreme. (We recommend always consulting a vet you trust before changing food.) 

With the help of a skilled and kind veterinarian, Strikes was overcome his blockage without surgery and was prescribed prescription pet food. Although the veterinarian deeply discounted the treatment, the combined cost of treatment a new food was too much for her to afford. Matters got worse quickly, when her second cat, Rue started developing the same symptoms, just as Strikes got home from the hospital. 

The cost of treating two sick cats and changing to more expensive food is too much to handle for this single mom on a fixed income. Please donate to help cover Strike’s veterinary bills.

Strikes and his brother Rue are doing well at home today. Their mom says:

In these uncertain times with the Covid-19 shutting down the nation For The Love Of Alex Inc. has gone above and beyond. Two of our furbabies began experiencing stones and crystals in their bladders and urinary tracts and we had to rush them both to the vet! Being a single mother on disability is hard but and I found it impossible to to be able to afford this emergency Vet bill. I reached out to The Love Of Alex Inc. fully expecting to be turned away due to the the nation experiencing this pandemic. Much to my surprise The Love Of Alex Inc. soared into action! They are super caring and kind! They answered our prayers! Without them I honestly don't know what we could have done. The Love Of Alex Inc. is a true blessing!
