Gizmo's vet bills

£590 of £1,200 goal

Raised by 16 people in 13 months
Gizmo is a year old cat and my son belongs to him, he disappeared for a day, and turned up late on the 15th March 2016 with his right back leg broken.  We rushed him to the emergency vets and then on the morning of the 16th March took him to our vets. We didn't have insurance for him, instead we were putting money aside, the emergency vet wiped out our emergency fund leaving us with bills up to £1200. 

He has had to have his leg amutated, and we are struggling to pay all the bills. 

My son lost his cat last year, and is very close to Gizmo, which is why putting him down was never an option, but we are struggling, we are a low income family and thought we would be saving money in the long run. 

I know this is cheeky, but Gizmo is an adorable cat, who would follow my son to his school and wait outside till he came home. He use to come out for walks with us and sleep with my son in his bed. 

Because of this my pride goes out the window when begging for money, times are tough for everyone but every little penny can help us.

Giz, got the all clear to get his cone off today, he is still not allowed outside for now. However the vet didn't make this clear to Gizmo and he escaped from a locked house while I was walking the dog. Still no clue how.

Please feel free to share, tweet, get your friends involved. We are still looking at around £800 worth of vet bills still to pay and any penny helps

Another vet app today, Giz is still being told to wear the cone (I don't think this vet has had a cat) but now he can come out of his cage, neither myself or my partner wanted to point out that is what we have been doing for the last week.
