Luca got out of his harness and fell four storeys

Luca has had a terrible accident. I am chronically ill and had to move into an apartment a while ago. Luca loved to sit on the balcony ledge, watching the world go by. When out there, Luca always had on his double harness, with the attached leads secured to a heavy weight on the balcony. A week ago, within the few minutes I came back inside, Luca somehow managed to get out of his double harness and fell from the balcony ledge, landing on his head 4 floors below. Luca needed a CAT scan to see the extent of the damage and to see if the vet could save him. The scan showed that Luca had cracked his skull in several places (these will hopefully heal naturally), had broken many bones in his nose (these cannot be operated on, most will hopefully heal naturally, although his nose will sit to one side of his face), and had broken a leg (this will hopefully knit naturally). Luca has just had an operation where the vet sewed up his broken palate, fixed his broken jaw and inserted a feeding tube.  Today the vet is operating on Luca’s paw,  putting screws into the central 2 metatarsals in one paw, as he broke the 4 metatarsals in that paw. Luca has been in emergency for almost a week and has received the best of care, but the vet bill is mounting.  I have been chronically ill and unable to work for the last 10 years, so any assistance you could give Luca and me would be wonderful. Luca means the world to me, as I live alone and spend most of my time at home. Luca brightens my day and I adore looking after him. I would be grateful for any small donation you can make to help me meet the final bill, which the vet has estimated at AUD$10,060. If the crowdfunding by chance raised more than the amount of the vet bill, I would donate it to a pet cause to help other pets in need. Please help me bring Luca home.
