Hello everyone and anyone who might read this, my name is Leigh and please excuse the corny ass title, as you’ve probably already figured out, I am extremely desperate. I have never done anything like this before, it’s a good thing I have no shame in admitting I always bite off more than I can chew. This is all about Bonnie, a homeless kitten who came to me from Tennessee in a potato box with small holes stabbed in the top, it was so sad I couldn’t let this little kitten continue on scared and alone, her future unknown. I feared what would happen to her if I didn’t take her. The thought made me feel sick, I did not like the ways he was being treated by the couple who brought her to me and without hesitation I could not have gotten her out of that box faster. Not surprisingly the poor little thing was crawling with worms and fleas so I had to get flea and worm treatments and I could not be more grateful to my friend Alana for saving the day. Thankfully she frequently fosters and takes in homeless cats, and was able to provide the treatments for Bonnie including flea & tick shampoo/treatment and a de-worming pill. After several unhappy hours of scrubbing, tedious combing and picking of the disgusting fleas all over her body she finally began to relax. I could visibly see the relief as the itching and discomfort began to dissipate, for the first time, despite being soaked to the bone, the tension began to release from her little distressed body. It was an amazing thing to see this abandoned practically feral kitten realizing her harrowing journey was finally over. She began to purr and knead my chest and I thought how much trouble you’re already causing me but I couldn’t be happier with my stupid little gray thing. It has been a couple weeks now and I am in love, Bonnie is my little gray ball of joy, the light has come back into her eyes and the potato box forever a thing of the past, but now the clock is ticking for her to receive the proper veterinary care she needs. She is a tiny cat but the likelihood she could soon be in heat if not already is extremely high and she needs to be spayed as soon as possible. Her arrival was unexpected to say the least and I am not even close to financially prepared for what she needs especially in terms of veterinary care. Just like any pet owner I will always go without food any day in order to feed my animals but I can’t deny it anymore, I need help. I am requesting an estimated total of $4,000 to cover Bonnie’s veterinary appointments, shots, medications, and spaying surgery hopefully with some left over for essentials such as food and litter and let’s not forget gas. My true mission is to provide Bonnie with all the love and care she needs and I will do anything for her to keep her safe so she will never be scared and alone again. I couldn’t be more appreciative of anyone who took the time to read this, Bonnie and I are going to hope and keep our fingers and toes crossed that help is on the way. Thank you!
