Let me start by saying that asking for help is never something that I’d ever do on my blog. I love you guys, I want to bring you funny (hopefully) content that keeps you amused.
However, you will also know how much I love cats. Yes, I have been called “Cat Lady” once or twice. Sadly my friend Saskia’s cat, Taffy, fell from the third floor of an apartment building last week. Having rushed him to the vets, he has a temporary cast but needs surgery. Poor tyke.
Then came the news that the surgery is going to cost £2,500 (expensive kitty, tsk!) and Taffy isn’t insured. Having contacted the RSPCA and PDSA, Saskia’s been told that as she isn’t on benefits, there’s nothing that they can do to help poor Taffy. Saskia is now forced with the awful realisation that she may have give him up to the RSPCA as she simply can’t afford the surgery.
This is where Cat Lady Mel comes in. I’m on a one woman mission to help save Taffy. I know how I’d be feeling if heaven forbid it was Hugo or Smudgie. Heartbroken. If you can find it in your hearts and can afford to donate just a couple of pounds, please let’s pull together and help save Taffy. I’d be eternally grateful. You can use the donate button on the righthand side of my blog. Oh and if you want to help spread the word, I guess we’d better start a hashtag too… #SaveTaffy.
Much love and keep your kitties safe.
UPDATE: The vets have contacted Saskia to say that they’ll now do the surgery for £1,000 so we’re almost there. Thank you so much for all of your support, it’s been completely overwhelming.
