Help Roofie the Barn Kittie

This is Roofie, our working barn kittie.  Her name is Roofie because she loves climbing on the roof, any roof really.  Roofie was living in the barn when we moved here and she and our other barn kitty not only keep the barn free of mice, they have also brought a lot of joy and entertainment to everyone who has met them.  Yesterday, April 10th, Roofie unfortunately had a little mishap, you guessed it, on the roof.  She was found hanging with her leg trapped in a wire.  A hero climbed up, freed her, and rushed her to the vet. Our initial reaction was that it didn’t look good for Roofie, but when I visited her today at the vet, he confirmed that Roofie can be patched up.  Although it might be a lil while until she is back in full force to scare the little critters in the barn, it is doable. We will bring her home tomorrow and she will be on two weeks of home confinement to bring swelling in her paw down and evaluate nerve and tissue damage. Then a surgeon will fix her dislocated elbow, and then she will be on another six to eight weeks of sick leave from her demanding job. Although she lives in the barn, we found out that she is actually potty trained and easy to handle.  She has an excellent chance of recovering fully.  
The vet bill right now for the past day and a half is at $500 and the estimate for her surgery is $1700. We hope to raise this while Roofie is on her two weeks sick leave awaiting surgery.  
We are asking for help because we have taken in quite a few unwanted animals and given them a home. In order to support them, we have to set limits.  To foot this amount out of pocket is simply not feasible without making cuts somewhere else. So please, join the Roofie fan club, look in the couch cushions for spare change, and find it in your heart to help a little kitty out.  Thank you from all of us in advance!
