WOW!!! WE MADE IT TO $6,000!! We now officially have enough money to get surgery on both legs!!! You all have given Winslow and myself the greatest gift we could ever receive. I never thought that this nightmare would bring so many people together. What I thought would be a never ending battle, was over in a matter of 4 days. TRULY INCREDIBLE!
Please follow us @winslowlubow & on his Facebook.com/winslowlubow. We will be posting updates on his surgeries as well as the first times where we get to see Winslow run and jump again pain free. Thank you all so much for this incredible miracle!!
When the vet first told me how much Winslow's surgeries were going to cost, I literally did not think it was even possible. It felt like a nightmare, and the only way to wake up from it was to save large chunks of my already designated paychecks. All I could do was watch and make Winslow as comfortable as possible. He became the master of the couch, he would meow when his favorite shows would come on, and sit directly in front of the t.v. when we wanted to watch something else. He was a true, couch potato.
This was the only joy we were able to find in the situation, until a good friend told me about gofundme.
You have to understand that we drive through LA traffic on a daily basis, so my thoughts on public generosity were honestly low, at best.
How truly wrong I was!! Not only did my friends rush to my side, but people who I hadn't spoken to in years still showed me that I was in their hearts, and that they had my back.
And then an even more beautiful thing happened, and people who I had never met before began embracing me in pure understanding and love! I cannot thank everyone enough for donating, and for sharing their stories with me. I had the love of a best friend in people I had never even met before, thousands of miles away!!
The generosity in this world truly brings tears to my eyes. A nightmare that I thought would never end, ended in only 3 days because of the incredible power of human compassion.
Thank you, thank you, thank you! From the bottom of our hearts, for saving not only my best friend, but a member of our family.
We have successfully raised enough for Winslow's left leg, and have even begun saving for his right! We are going to make Winslow a facebook page so we can keep everyone up to date with his recovery. His surgery will be in a couple of weeks, and then he has to be in post op for 8 weeks.
I can never thank each and everyone of you enough. You have brought us a miracle. I will remember this for the rest of my life. The world is filled with beautiful, compassionate people. And even if they aren't letting you merge lanes, they will still take the time to show you love. Thank you!
Well that, and the internet certainly loves their cats!!!
When I told Winslow how close we were to reaching our goal he was SHOCKED!!! As am I! I would have never guessed that we would have made it this far so fast! We can finally start breathing and preparing for the surgery ahead. Thank you so much for all of your love and support. You all have brought so much light and joy into our lives. We are so close!!!
I am truly touched by all the love and support that we continue to receive. In less than 48 Hours we are already 1/3rd of the way to our goal!! When Winslow stopped walking, I thought that the nightmare would never end. But all of you have continued to give us hope, and now we are the closest we have ever been to seeing our little guy walk again. I can never thank all of you enough. The world is filled with beautiful people, I will never forget all the love and support we have received from family, friends and even strangers. Let's keep it going!
Now that Winslow cannot walk, he has become the biggest couch potato. Here is him watching his favorite show, Futurama.
We have already raised $740 in only 24 hours. What started as a last resort, has now become a network of love, support, and mostly hope. We can never thank you enough for all the money donated so far. Let's do this!!
WOW! $510.00 on just the first day! The world is truly filled with beautiful people. Thank you everyone for your donations and for spreading the word. At one point, I thought this nightmare would never end. But now, you all have really brought us hope. Thank you! We can really do this!
I cannot believe how generous everyone has been! We have already raised $360 for Winslow's surgery! Thank you, so much, for shedding some light on these dark days. I truly cannot thank you enough for the love and support we have been receiving.
Hello everyone. My name is Alex, and my cat's name is Winslow. I have had Winslow since he was 4 weeks old. I adopted him off Craiglist, the runt of the litter!
Recently, he started limping on his back legs. He has been diagnosed with Luxating Patellas, a genetic disorder that pops his back knees out of place.
Right now he cannot walk on his left leg, and soon he won't be able to walk at all. It is so hard to see my little guy in pain. I am doing everything I can to raise the money for his surgery, but being only 22, paying student loans, rent, and utilities, I can only raise the money so fast.
I miss watching Winslow run. My little guy is only 9 months old, he has years left of being a playful kitten, but now he cannot even jump up on my bed.
The longer we wait, the higher change we have of arthritis developing in those knees. And then he will be in pain for the rest of his life.
I cannot thank you enough for your time, and support. Every donation helps.
