Professor Spends $19,000 To Get Kidney Transplant For Her Bestie — A 17-Year-Old Cat
A professor earning just $46,000 as a part-time lecturer has reportedly lavished a whopping sum of$19,000 to provide a kdiney transplant for her cat.
Betsy Boyd, a writing professor at the University of Baltimore, doled out the amount when her 17-year-old cat Stanley was in end-stage renal failure and needed a kidney transplant, People reported.
Boyd even agreed to the other condition of the surgery: Adopting the donor cat, the magazine said.
“Stanley loves me as much as any human being has ever loved me and I love him the same way,” Boyd told People. “I want him around.”
Boyd’s feline underwent surgery in November and is now back home in Baltimore — along with Jay, a formerly homeless 2-year-old cat who was the kidney donor, the magazine reported.
“Stan is thriving, and I’m relieved that this pet — who means at least as much to me as my siblings — still has a pulse,” Boyd added to People. “There’s a great chance Stan will now live to 20 at the very least.”
