Help Poodie get her head fixed

This campaign has been started by friends of Stephanie McKellop (@McKellogs) and Poodie the magical unicorn cat. Poodie's head is infected from when her ear was removed by a (not-good, apparently) surgery pre-adoption. According to Stephanie:

"From the doctor's sheet: it says she needs xrays or CT of her head to find the ear pieces left in her head. Then she would need a "bulla osteotomy" where they open her head and get the crap out. The doc said this would be ~1,000 for the exploration procedures and like $4000 for anesthesia/surgery. It is hefty.

[...]Poodie is a rescue from an abusive hoarding situation, and I adopted her my first year of grad school as a support animal for my PTSD...I just want to be able to help her, too. The doc said she tore a hole almost to the bone trying to get to the parts in her inner ear that hurt so bad. I just can't stand that, and if I can't afford to help her I feel I will have to put her down, because it is not fair that she has to live in so much pain."

Friends, let's help a Poodie out and help her grad-student mom with these surgery and vet bills.  Everything donated (after the goFundMe fees) will go to Poodie's head surgery, 100%.
