Tippytoe is our young,
beautiful long haired cat with little pink toes (where he got his name). He's
got a unique personality, and never takes crap from anyone, which gives him his
sassy-catitude. He is extremely clean, and very particular. Unfortunately,
Tippytoe took a very large tumble, and broke a great deal of his tiny pink
tippy toes, and the wrist of his front paw.
He has been to the BC SPCA
and checked out. Miraculously his injuries were not worse. He is a very strong
cat. He has had his x-rays, and currently it appears he is otherwise healthy
except for his broken bones. He is splinted and bandaged, and currently with us
on pain killers.
We are looking to raise
money to help support the surgeries (yes, plural) our Tippy toe is going to
need to fix his broken bones. The vets said they will need to pin the bones of
his toes in his back paws, and he may need a plate inserted to fix his little
wrist. Depending on what we can afford, and what the doctors feel is best, the
leg may have to be amputated.
We do not have an exact cost
as of this time, but the doctors are estimating around $3000 for the surgeries
alone, not including further care and medication afterwards. We are going back
in on Monday to get a proper consultation and a more precise estimate.
If we cannot cover the cost
of the surgeries, we will have to put our cat down...
This is a great cost, but we
are hoping with the loving support of our friends, neighbours, and generous
animal lovers, we can help cover it.
We are already finding ways
to help support the cost, and any help
we can get from YOU is greatly appreciated.
Any additional cost over his expenses will be donated to the BC SPCA.
Thank you all.
