CALL FOR HELP: my roommate rani's cat tigger needs your help.

i threw together a website to raise money for my the leg amputation operation that my rommmate rani's cat tigger needs. tigger is as sweet as pie, has the cutest little mew, is always curling up with guests of our apartment, and he has the hugest eyes i've ever seen a cat have. i'd suggest that anyone who can afford to please paypal her at least $5. it's the cost of a good beer or most 7" records. we've all been in bad places monetarily before and being stuck between a rock and a hard place when it comes to a beloved pet who's grown up with you, it sucks. i also want to add that any artists/crafters/musicians who can donate something handmade for an etsy auction or two that i'll put together, please contact me asap because i think that would be a good way to generate money for tigger as well. please re-post this wherever you wish. we're really trying to get the word out there. following is the myspace bulletin that rani sent out along with a link to the site that i put up for the cause:



URGENT!! Tigger and I need your help!!!
Body: Hey everyone,

I write this with a heavy heart as I have just found out that my cat, Tigger, has cancer and will have to have his leg amputated. It appears that the cancer has not spread yet, so it is very likely that once he has the surgery, he will live a long, happy life. The problem is I need to come up with approximately $3000 to covers his surgery and vet bills. I love this little guy more than anything and will do anything to save him.

Currently, I am taking donations to help cover these costs via Paypal. Please contribute anything you can afford, even if it is only a dollar or two. You can drink one less tall boy at the Top tonight, right? Also, by next week, I will be auctioning off my belongings on Ebay. I will be selling band and Threadless t's, my CD and record collection (with lots of rarities, including Sarah records stuff and early 90's britpop), and various other items. Please check back regularly as I will be adding new stuff daily.

Here is a link to his website with further details and a link to Paypal.

the wonderful things about Tigger

Seriously guys, any little bit helps. And please repost or forward this to any of your animal loving friends. Tigger and I thank you for your generosity.

Current Location: work
Current Mood: hopeful
Current Music: getting out of work soon music?

amy, thank you so much. downstairs on the table i see that she's keeping a list of donations (probably to write thank you notes). it's going pretty well so far and if it keeps up, i really think it could work!

oh, our own kitty got really sick once, and we had to auction off lots of prized possessions to pay for her treatment. it was SO worth it. i really feel like ethel knew what we had done to save her life, and after the surgery, she became even more love-y and snuggly than she was before (and she was already pretty darn love-y and snuggly!). that was six years ago, and as i type this, she's snuggled up next to me taking a snooze right now. ;)

i sent a little (i wish i could send more right now!) and reposted on lj and my copacetic-zine blog. and please let me know when you'll be accepting donations for the etsy auction! i will definitely send something!!!

much love to all of you! xoxoox

lisa, thank you so much. i know you know what rani and myself + our other roommate dan are feeling. i feel like animals (and people) should have universal healthcare too or that all veteranarians should at least let people who really need to go on payment plans. as of this morning, we've raised $1335. we'll start putting her cds on ebay tonight and hopefully the craft auctions will be up by the end of this coming weekend. every little bit helps, lisa, so thank you so much.

xo,
leigh

In the last year I discovered my cat had hyper thyroid, she now takes 4 pills a day and goes to the vet every month. Not as bad off as Tigger, but I know the desire to do whatever it takes to make your kitty healthy again! So while I can't afford to donate money I can donate some paper goods or something to auction! Let me know, my e-mail is kate at pencilshavings.net

stephanie, you are the bestest. i know you are in a sad face place monetarily, so if you try to donate anything else, it should be some cool cute art you make. i still remember one of the first times i was at your house and thinking how cute the construction paper stuff you were making (halloweens/valentines?) was, soo...that's what i think you should do. i'm going to put up three ebay auctions at the most, so... :D
