Help Goldie Recover

UPDATE: Goldie is doing great post surgery for his leg fracture. It was a very complicated surgery (his bones were crumbling as they were inserting the pins. But they were able to stabilize the injury. This surgery alone was $6,000. He needs to go back and have his de-gloving repaired. Then, he will be recuperating at our vet for at least a month. Our new estimate for his care will be $12,000. Goldie continues to amaze purring loudly while getting chin scratches and leaning in for head butts. 

Goldie is an inspiration. He wound up at the NYC shelter after being mauled by a dog. He sustained severe injuries resulting in a compound fracture of his hind leg and a de-gloving injury (where the fur, skin and tissue are torn off) to a front leg. We rescued him and brought him to our vet. Each injury required hours of disinfecting and triage each day. Once stabilized, he will now need reconstructive surgery on both limbs at a speciality hospital where is today. 

Despite these threatening injuries and extreme pain, Goldie has been attention seeking -- even to the point of laying on his back for belly rubs. His amazing disposition and spirit are why we are utterly committed to helping him recover -- but we need your support. HIs medical care will be anywhere from $6,000-$8,000 and will require two months of hospitalization. All funds go directly to his vet care. So please consider contributing to this amazing cat and be part of the wonderful story of his recovery.
