Many of you know that my cat Yucky turns 16 in June! What many of you don't know is that on the eve of her birthday Yucky was diagnosed with cancer, so she'll be spending her birthday month getting radiation treatments.
The level of treatment that won't ruin her quality of life and that's (mostly) within reach for a working artist like me, is still about $1,000 - 1,500 more than I can afford. I figured: if I can come up with a list of 200 people I could ask for $10 without reservation, then I should at least try this crowdfunding thing. Right?
And so here you are, either because you know Yucky or me or have pets you love, too. If 1/4 of you give, then I've at least offset the financial burden, and if 1/2 of you give just $10, then I'll be able to proceed worry-free! Please give just $5 or $10. I know we all work hard for our money, and my hope is that everyone gives a little bit.
Although I feel a little embarrassed saying it, Yucky really is my best friend. Those of you who've seen me with her know how connected Yucky and I are. I realize that her passing is inevitable, but let's me make her remaining years as comfortable and rich as the first 16 have been.
