I just got back from the vets about 10 minutes ago and I'm actually in quite a panic.

About 3 hours ago at 11pm, mum started yelling for my help and when I went to see what was wrong, I saw my cat sprawled on the floor hissing, spitting and screaming in pain. She had things clinging to her fur, her arm was twisted in a strange position and at first we thought that she might've got something stuck in her paw since she wouldn't let us anywhere near her front right arm.

So upon closer inspection, we realised that something was pretty wrong and rushed her to the emergency vets surgery. They told us that she's in shock right now and she's been dosed with pain killers and nothing can be done until morning, but she'll need to have (several, I imagine) xrays and to find out whether she's fractured, dislocated or broken her arm. Either way, this is going to be very costly to pay for the xrays, to sedate her and to treat her. I know this doesn't sound serious, but..We all know the alternative option if you aren't able to pay for the treatment.

Anyone who knows me would know about my oldest cat, Sooty. She's 13 years old, going on 14, and she's still a healthy little thing. I can't remember my life before that goddamn raging furball and, fuck, I love my animals to pieces. It hurt to see my MOTHER choking up and crying over this.

I hate asking this sort of thing and I hate talking about such personal life issues, but guys. We're really, really poor. We're struggling quite terribly and we can't do anything about it. My dad has been working himself ragged doing overtime at work to scrape in a little more money which is going straight towards feeding us and keeping us with a roof over our head. I don't have a job because nowhere around me is taking on any students and things are really hard.

We just had to pay £150 straight up to keep her in the vet clinic overnight, keep her on pain medication and ensure that she's well looked after. Basically, £150 that we don't have. That my parents don't have. That I just had to pay out of the money that I've been saving and putting aside to get by when university starts in September and it's only going to start costing a lot more once she's moved to a different surgery in the morning and they'll want to be paid as soon as possible. The bills could possibly go into the hundreds-of-pounds zone and shit, we just can't afford that.

So please, guys. Any and all donations would be appreciated and I can't offer much, but I'll draw mini character sprite things for anyone who donates as a thankyou. I know it isn't much but it's the best I can do right now and please, if you can't donate, perhaps you can help by signal boosting?

If you can give anything, please. Donate to my paypal at TheMelodiousNocturne@live.co.uk and all of the money will go towards the vet bills. We really aren't ready to let go of this cat, and I'm sorry that I can't write more but I'm in quite a rush since we're going to need to move her first thing in the morning.

I'm so sorry for lumping this on you guys.

Again, my paypal is TheMelodiousNocturne@live.co.uk and my family and I will appreciate any donations. They don't even know that I'm doing this, but I just have to.

Could you put up an amount of donations you are looking for, and how much you received already? Like ____/_____

It would give a better idea as to how much people should donate. Even if you don't know how much money you need EXACTLY, just put down as estimate.

My fiance and I don't have a lot of cash right now, as I have donated to two other people already. But I will get some money to you asap. ^_^

I am sorry that I can't donate, If I had money I would defiantly help because well.... my neighbor poisoned my cat and we had to put her down and then just a few months later my other cat that I got for my birthday several years ago was killed when she was hit by a car. If there is anything to do to help just tell me

I feel your pain. My previous dog Holly has/had a really bad ear infection, my family could not afford the vet bills and my mother had to surrender her to the SPCA animal shelter, where Holly will get the care she needs.

Im so sorry about your cat, I hope she gets better soon and that your family can get the money! I cant donate, but I can sure spread the word for you! :hug:

my dog that we had a long time ago acted like this except she was panting and barking and couldnt move,we took her to the vet but it was to late they said she was injected with poison in a major blood vessel causing it to spread around faster,it could have been a plant or bug but either way it killed her within a 5 hour period but we thought she was just going crazy and by the tim we decided to take her to the vet she was gone. the only reason why i am sharing this story is because they had similar symptoms not so people can feel pity for me (just wanted to put that out there) my friend Amber Broken Hearted sent me i really hope your cat gets better i know how it is to go through stuff like this ~<3

Did you even read the journal? The cat has an injured limb, if it doesn't get treatment they will have to get her put to sleep. You can't leave a cat with a broken leg to suffer and stagger around to the best of its abilities, that's just fucking sick.
