My Vet Bills and Flight Home

On December 13th, I lost my mother. I had to fly back to the states for her funeral and to get her affairs in order. A last-minute flight to Minnesota from New Zealand was not cheap, but it was a necessary expense. 

When I was home I was able to visit with my cat, Remus, who was staying with friends while I was away. I noticed he was a lot thinner than normal, and wanted to make sure we kept an eye on it. Things got worse and he had to be taken in. He had a fatty liver disease and was being treated for it. Most likely due to the medication, he was on, he developed diabetes. It was unlikely that he would recover completely from both the liver disease and diabetes because of the medication. On February 21st I had to say goodbye to another loved family member. 

As you can see, the bills I have racked up the past couple of months is quite high. I don't want anyone to feel obligated to help, but if this is a way you would like to help I would appreciate it.
