Here is her fundraiser! We need $1000 to cover the rest of her bills and travel expenses for getting her to her new home!
For those who don’t know the story, Taco (now Nemo!) was rescued last Tuesday from a friend’s yard after being attacked by a dog. She wound up with a punctured lung, a shattered left foreleg, and a lot of bruising and pain. Surprising everyone, she pulled through and was quickly well enough for an amputation to take care of the leg. Thankfully, Tumblr leaped into action, knocked out over half her vet bill, and found her a home in 48 hours, before she even left the hospital.
She is healing beautifully so far. She is incredibly shy, very fearful of people, but she’s with folks who are willing to take their time and be gentle with her, and I have hope that she will be cuddly and playful very shortly.
We saved her life, and with your help have covered over half the expenses already. Now we just need to go the rest of the way and knock this bill out so we don’t have it hanging over our heads on top of everything else (the Care Credit bill BEFORE this was almost unmanageable, this will make it something we literally cannot afford).
If you could spread the word please, and help us take care of this by throwing $5 or $10 our way, that would be fantastic.
Any extra we make will be applied to the Care Credit bill from Fancy’s surgeries two years ago, and from Dried Pickle Man’s last round of bloodwork, which we are still paying off.
We made first goal!
We reached the first goal and her surgery and adoption expenses have been covered!
I have raised the goal so that we can maybe wipe out some of our outstanding Care Credit debt from Fancy’s surgeries a couple years ago, and from vet visits since then for the others. As it is, we are basically only able to pay for the interest and not bringing the amount down much, even after all this time.
Any additional help you could send will be used to pay down our Care Credit debt. I would be deeply and personally grateful. Please consider it, and keep boosting this so we can get more eyes on it.
And thank you, thank you so much, for seeing to it that Taco’s expenses are paid. Here she is, doing all right, recuperating in her new home.
Cross your fingers that she recovers quickly and comes out of her shell, so she can be the brave, sweet little thing I know she can be.
Still hoping to knock down some of this Care Credit debt we have hanging around from 2 freakin’ years ago. Any help would be very much appreciated!
WE MADE GOAL! Thanks to an INCREDIBLY generous donor, we are over the top. I don’t know who you are, but thank you. Eternally. Thank you.
Any further funds raised will go to the REST of our outstanding vet debt or to living expenses for US, as we are in a little hot water over here trying to get by.
As a thank you to all of you, dome Taco pictures!
Her name is NEMO now!
She was very scared of everything for a while. Who can blame her? But she has opened up and become very snuggly.
Here she is exploring after just a few short days in her new home!
And here are pictures of her cuddling.
Isn’t she just SO BEAUTIFUL?
She is healing up really well and getting around okay, learning to compensate for that missing leg. I am so proud of her for pulling through and being brave enough to trust humans. And I am wildly grateful to her human, who is undoubtedly the exact right person for her, and who jumped in with no hesitation to take an injured kitten who wasn’t keen on people. Also very brave.
And to all of you. You kept this from being way too expensive for us.
We would be incredibly grateful for further donations via the fundraiser, or via paypal at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As I mentioned, we are struggling right now in a big way, and anything helps us so much. I appreciate your generosity and your faith in us more than I can ever express. Thank you.
And little Nemo thanks you too. Just look at that face. What a girl.
Oh my god look at this kid.
