Simba’s shattered leg

51651668_1601747598214643_r.jpegHi everyone, my cat Simba escaped two nights ago and was found unable to move and in severe pain. I took him to the emergency veterinary hospital where they did a full set of x-rays. We found out that Simbas leg is fully shattered in multiple places and needs immediate surgery, with pins and plates.  His ER visit yesterday alone cost $600, and his surgery is estimated at $7,000.  This is already almost impossible for my family and I to pay, let alone with COVID-19 where we have been unable to work since March. Simba is my whole heart, and my baby. He is only 1 year old, and my heart is broken watching him go through this and the amount of pain that he is in. We are not expecting much from this, but every dollar counts to save my baby’s leg and to have him continue to live his life in his full potential...thank you all for reading.
