A kind friend and I will be driving the old B/W chap across town today. We will literally be on the motorcycle for one hour and a half back and forth, but for a new lease and a great second chance in life, the journey will be well worth it.
Our wonderful surgeon has successfully reconnected all torn ligaments, and she is on the mend, and since I have kittens with fatally infectious disease in the house at the moment, one of my old connections in dog rescue had agreed to host her for a while.
However, since he is inexperienced in caring for a cat, our feisty lady is too much for him, so I have talked to see if we can trade. We will release the old chap near his house and he will train the old chap to find where he and his wife put out cat food every day.
Touched by the story of the lady cat who twisted her leg (the twisted leg shown in the photo near the man in blue’s shoulder, other photos are too graphic), our old friend offered to help, however, caring for two dogs and a bunch of strays who gone in and out of his front and back yard every day for food took a bite out of him and although he still pledges, I won’t count on him, nor will I ask him about his promises.
Both the old chap and the twisted leg lady left USD 500 in my veterinary tab, and it will definitely take me a while to pay them off, especially because this is the end of the month and I should be focusing on paying our mortgage, or else the whole sanctuary will go homeless.
Our weekly fundraiser is currently stand on USD 355. It means on top of the USD 450 mortgage that I have to provide by the end of next week, I have to be prepared to work extra for USD 245 should we not reach our goal.
It is my greatest wish that you can, and will, help me fill in our fund raiser jar just a little bit, so I can direct my efforts into keeping our home.
It is my greatest wish that together we can once again send a little miracle to our deserving friends, who have no one else to turn to.
Would you open the door to your heart once more?
