This is Roy and this is our kitten I was talking about earlier. Jenny has eloquently summed up the essence of our fun(d) drive so I am just going to re-post what she wrote. Thanks for looking. Roy really appreciates it!
ROY THE KITTEN IS MEOWSKING FOR YOUR HELP!
My friend Katie and her fiancé Steven found the above palm-sized kitten in the back alley of a restaurant yesterday. Returning to their car after dinner, they heard the sound of cats fighting nearby. Approaching, they watched as numerous cats and kittens scattered away. All scattered, save little Roy. He didn’t run off with the rest of his brothers and sisters or his mom because he couldn’t. Katie soon discovered he was bleeding and had a limp hanging leg. Without a second’s thought, they scooped him up and headed straight to the emergency vet. He has now been to two vet appointments and x-rays show he has a broken femur, along with an infection from a bite puncture wound.
Leaving him in the alley was NOT an option. And because his age and injury means immediate death, neither was turning him over to Animal Services. Without a thought of cost, Katie and Steven took it upon themselves to save him and get him the care he needs. I like to believe I would have done the same thing. I like to believe you would have, too. I can prove I would have! You can too! Keep reading.
The vet bills so far already total nearly $300 (the emergency vet bill last night was $238 and his vet visit and X-rays today was $127). And the surgery necessary to fix Roy’s leg could total $700. They are willing to take full responsibility for Roy and his charges, but are humbly asking for some help with him since Katie and Steven already have a house filled with the luckiest rescues and fosters (pups and cats and a bunny, too) and abandoning him is NOT an option. Please help them help little Roy. If they’re not going to abandon him, I’m not either. They’ve set up a CHIP-IN link to make it the easiest thing. Skip tomorrow’s trip to Starbucks and help Roy the kitten <3 You’ll feel so much better. I promise!
In a nutsack:
Roy the kitten fits in your hand.
He has a broken leg .
He’s meowsking you to help him pay for his surgery.
He will send you 10 kitten kisses in gratitude for your assistance.
*It should be noted that in the small chance that we possibly raise more than needed for his costs, they intend to use the leftover money to try to get his brothers and sisters back at the restaurant spayed and neutered, or donate the money to a no-kill rescue who can.*
