Hey tumblr! So my babycat Andy has been sick all week :( He was throwing up a couple times a day in the beginning of the week and then on Wednesday night he started leaving little puddles of bloody mucus everywhere. I took him to a free clinic on Thursday where I could get a free exam. They said his stomach felt ok, but gave him some anti-nausea shots and told me to feed him human baby food for a few days and give him antacid. He seemed ok on Thursday night and Friday morning, but then he stopped eating. He seemed to have no appetite and I couldn’t tell if he was drinking enough water. I was considering if I should take him to the vet ER today for fluids. He finally ate a little bit but then threw it right up. We decided to take him in.
They examined him and he cried when they pressed on his stomach. They gave him an xray which showed no obstructions, but they can’t be 100% sure that he didn’t eat a foreign body.They gave him another anti-nausea shot and some fluid bubbles injected in his skin to help him keep hydrated. I need to fast him for 12 hours and then see how he does. If he doesn’t get better, he’ll need an ultrasound, and if they do find something in their he may need surgery or a scope.
So here is the thing. Tonight’s whole visit cost a little over $400. The only reason I was able to pay it all up front is because of generous loans from my roommates. If he needs an ultrasound ($300) or surgery ($3,000) I don’t know what I’ll do. I know this is part of owning a pet, but he is normally young and healthy and I really need him to get through life.
I haven’t paid my spring semester bill yet, I need to take my old landlord to court for our security deposit that he has no right to, and I have no financially sound family to turn to. My mom just barely managed to pay her rent this month, and things are so tight for everyone I love. I already barely break even for my day to day expenses, I am on food stamps, and I am putting myself through school. Basically, things are really hard and this just makes them harder. If anyone has ANYTHING they can spare, I am talking $1 I would feel so touched. Please pass this along, to benefit my favorite cuddle buddy, Andy. Thanks!
There is a paypal on my tumblr description. If you donate as a gift there is no fee.
SIGNAL BOOSTING FOR MY LOVELY ROOMMATE AND MY DUMB CAT’S BROTHER
If you need a reason to donate more than that adorable kitty you see up there, I’m offering to do pixel sprites in exchange for certain increments!
For $5 I’ll make you a baby-sized pixel:
I’ll animate it for $8:
And for $12 I’ll make you a larger sprite:
You can find a shitton more on my pixel page, but you probably already knew that.
Thanks for any help you can give. Donations are always appreciated, but even just spreading this would mean a lot to me! <3
Spreading the word once more for the day crowd!! Starting a donation campaign at 2AM is probably not the best way to get things going.
Also, since I have gotten a few asks regarding how to go about requesting a pixel from me, if you just include a note along with your donation (Paypal link can once more be found on the sidebar over on Bonnie’s blog) stating your Tumblr URL and that you are looking for a pixel commission from me, I’ll send you a message as soon as I know payment has been received and we can work out further details from there!!
Thanks once again for your help, guys! It means a lot to all of us!
