Last night my dad found this kitten under our garage door with its head stuck underneath and an injured tail. After we got it out, with the help of some firemen, we brought it inside to check out the damage. At first we thought the tail was the result of a raccoon attack but it turns out the kitten may have accidentally scraped off all of his fur and most (if not all) of the skin on his tail by trying to get into our garage; only the flesh is left on the tail.
This morning my dad and I brought him to the vet and his tail will have to be amputated in a couple weeks since he’s too young now. He’s about 6 weeks old according to the vet.
And now I’m gonna go ahead and do something on tumblr I never thought I’d do. The surgery will cost a couple hundred dollars, and in addition to that we’re going to have to pay for the visit today (which cost a little over $100), neutering, shots, medicine and food/litter. I’m an unemployed college student and money is really tight right now with my parents. Only one of my parents currently has a job.
Everything is going to cost my family around $550-600 and we are not in a position to be spending that much money. We can’t afford it.
If you click on that link you can send money to me through my mom’s paypal account. The email is: email@example.com
Any amount of money you are able to send would be muchmuchmuch appreciated. .10c would help, .50c, a dollar… whatever you are able to spare would be amazing. If you aren’t able to send money please consider spreading this around!
Aside from the tail the kitten should be perfectly okay. In the meantime my dad and I are going to try and find a good home for this little guy.
Again, here is the link and the email address in firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you, everyone!
