Help Pay for Bailey’s Surgery

I have set up this go fund me to help for Bailey Surgery.  


Hello! My name is Charline and I am the proud owner of my little Ragdoll girl Tina, I spent a lot of time on the Facebook cat groups and recently read a call for help from a family who’s Ragdoll Bailey has gotten trapped under a baby gate and broken his front leg.
Here is a little description of what happened :

Bailey was adopted in February by Viktoras and his wife.

Unfortunately they didn’t realise they got him from a dodgy back garden breeder which meant they also got him with complications.

He arrived with cat flu and Trichomoniasis which had to be treated rapidly.

For this reason the vet advised them to wait until these two issues were treated fully to start an insurance on Bailey.

This afternoon Bailey was playing with a balloon and got himself trapped under the baby gate in the house. While trying to force-wriggle himself out he ended up breaking his front leg which seems to be fully snapped from shoulder to elbow (still waiting on the scans but that’s what the vet thinks so far).
The vet gave an estimate quote to V and his wife of about £2000 for a surgery.
They asked to pay in settlements which was refused and they only offered them the second option to keep the cat and ask for a rescue Center to take over and pay for the bill or, if they can’t find anything they would put him down.

Naturally both these options are terrible for this family who has just bought a house a few weeks ago and literally put all their savings in the deposit for it.
They have already paid 300 pounds for the painkillers and the night at the vet today but they cannot afford the surgery and really don’t want to let him go or get put down.

Please for those of you who can donate, even the smallest amount, so we can save Bailey, it would be awesome!
