Rescue cat in need of medical help
I also posted this in rescue cats, but I'm not sure that was the correct forum:
First of all, if I am doing something not allowed, or if I am on the wrong forum, I will totally understand if it is taken off.......
I have been managing 2 colonies of feral and stray cats in my neighborhood. About 15 cats in all. They are spayed, neutered, ears clipped, shots given, etc. A rescue group helped me with all that. Things have been working out PERFECT!
There are 2 calico sisters that were abandoned when their elderly owner went into a nursing home. They are tame, loving, and about 10 years old. One of the calicos (Louise) started limping badly. I took her into the vet and he said that she has a tumor on her left front foot and one on the back. She limps all the time. Her said that she is not in pain, but it doesn't look that way. Yesterday I got a good look at the tumor on her front foot. It's about the size of a grape on her pad. She walks real cautiously and I think it does cause her some pain.
I want to find out if any of you have any ideas how I could raise some money to help with this surgery. I am right now trying to get an estimate on the surgery's cost. I really can't do a bake sale, but I'm thinking about making something that is inexpensive that I could sell. Christmas things or something....I just don't know. Please help me figure out how I can get some money together. My mom is having a yard sale this weekend, and anything that I gave up for the yard sale is going toward Louise............Thanks, Beth
