Milo is a sweet little kitten who was found abandoned on the side of the road with severely infected eyes. The kind couple who found him tried to help poor Milo by taking him to the vet, only to find out that he was suffering from a rare condition called Eyelid Agenesis, which basically means that he was born without eyelids. Unfortunately, the couple was not able to afford the long-term expenses of treating a disorder like his, so they took Milo to their local animal shelter.

Without adequate facilities or finances to help an animal with Milo’s condition, the shelter was close to euthanizing this poor little guy at only three months old. But luckily, he found his guardian angel, and a new, forever home.

Since then, Milo has enjoyed bonding with his new family and they seem to be quite smitten as well.

But because of his condition, he has developed painful ulcers that could lead to the loss of both of his eyes.

Milo’s only option is an reconstructive skin graft surgery, but it’s expensive. His family needs help covering the cost.

The vet seems confident that the procedure will work to alleviate Milo’s deteriorating condition, but saving this kitty will cost a whopping $3,500! With very little time left to save Milo’s eyes, his family has set up a GoFundMe  page, in the hopes of raising the money in time to save this sweet kitty.
