Hey everyone, meet Buddy! He’s an affectionate, adorable cat who warmed up to me when i first moved into my apartment. He was a stray who stopped by every now and then, and went back outside when he was fed and rested. soon, though, he started staying inside, and even sleeping next to me at night. He and my other cat, Nyx, have gotten along as well and even play with each other when they go outside and even inside my apartment.
About a month ago, he went outside and did’t come back that night. He was missing for a better part of last month. A few nights ago, he’s sitting at my doorstep, meowing to come in. When he did, i noticed he had a limp. I thought maybe he had hurt it somehow, so I took a look.
From the pictures in the link, you can see he has a horrible gash on his leg, both on top and on bottom. He cannot put any weight on it and it quivers when he’s not on it.
(there’s a video in the link as well)
I researched how much surgery would cost, and it’s anywhere between $400 and $1000. I definitely cannot cover this amount, and It hurts me to see him in pain like this.
I set the donation goal to be $1500, just in case it’s on that high end of surgery costs. It’s also to include his vet bill for shots and to have him fixed as well.
Any amount helps him, and i’d be eternally grateful! If I do raise enough, and there is extra money left, I’m going to be donating ALL of it towards another pet owner who needs help with their pet.
So please, can you help a ‘Buddy’ out?
