Help Burnie get his eye back.

When Burnie was about 5 weeks old he and his family were trapped under a brush fire.  Once the person realized there were cats living in it the fire was put out, but not fast enough.  This little guy was the only one to escape alive.  Initially when he was brought into our veterinary clinic it looked like he made it out with only a few scrapes but as time went on it was obvious the heat of the fire had done much more damage.  In the end Burnie lost an ear, both sets of eye lids and much of the skin on his face.  After months of twice daily oral antibiotics, eye ointment four times a day, numerous bandage changes, and two surgical procedures he's healed. Thanks to Burnie's spunky attitude and his owner's dedication to the medical treatment he needed, he pulled through.  Now that he's healed he can have surgery to replace his eyelids so his owner doesn't have to continue the twice daily eye ointment for the rest of his life.  Because this is such an intricate and indepth procedure it must be performed by a specialist, which means it's fairly expensive.   We're looking to help his owner raise the money she needs to help get this little guy back to a "normal", medication-free life.
