Pretty Needs Your Help!

Hello everyone! Thank you all in advance for taking time to read my story regarding a very unfortunate and exteremely bad day for my precious kitty. Her name is Pretty, she is 5 years old, I found her when she was a kitten wandering a country road. She is very kind, very sweet, very loving...She is an inside cat but goes outside with me from time to time, never ventures far from me, until last Saturday. She was caught in my neigbors fan inside his truck. We took the bolts off the headlights to get more room, and there she was looking up at me like....help. We went to go towards her and she leaped out and hobbled to the grass. I ran to her and picked her up and noticed a VERY BAD and very deep cut on her right leg. She also couldnt stand on her left leg. Rushed her to the emergency vet clinic where they immediately took her in and started checking her out. 

They were able to get her stable and get an xray. The leg with the cut, yes it was bad, but not as bad as her left leg. Luckily it barely missed her sciatica nerve. The left leg...Broken Femur (shattered actually) and broken Tibia (clean break). 

They were able to put a plate on her femur and tibia and tons of screws. Sewed up her cut on the other leg. Of course this wasn't cheap. I had the option to amputate, said it would be much cheaper. I just couldn't let that be the only option if there was a chance she could be fixed. I made sure if they did surgery, her healing process wouldn't be miserable. SO i chose surgery. If it were me, I'd rather one bad leg instead of no leg...of course amputation would have been totally fine if that was the only option.

This cat is more than an aminal she is my family. I'd do it over the exact same if i had to. But she is now the worlds most expensive financed cat!

The down payment on Saturday was $1500.
The Surgery was $3000.

I have to bring her back multiple times to get radio graphs on her progress. So its not over.  If at all possible, i'd like to ask anyone that is able, to please help with the vet expenses so i can continue to get her the proper medical treatment. We've come pretty far in this short amount of time and with your help we can make it through this.

Thank you,
