Help Oliver Walk Again
Here's the kicker. The company that I worked for ceased operations the week before, leaving me currently unemployed. Yeah.
I want to do all I can for this sweet, sentient being who has already been through so much. I rescued him from a hoarder in 2008. Because of his owner's negligence, he required surgery, and I maxed out every credit card to save him. Way before "Go Fund Me," or other online campaigns, I asked the Web for help and put up a paypal button, and the Web, (mostly my wonderful friends and blog readers) came to his aid. That inspiring story is here: http://annecentral.blogspot.com/2008/08/im-sure-you-might-have-noticed-donate.html
I told Oliver, "I've got you, as long as you're willing." So, I'm asking for help again. I don't know his prognosis, and can't promise a happy ending. But what I can promise, is to do everything that I can to try to get one.
Thank you so much. Even sharing helps.
With sincere gratitude,
Anne and Oliver
Thank you all so much for your generous donations. To have raised so much in so little time, I'm just beyond. You have helped this wonderful cat, who so many have grown to know and love through my blog, Flickr, and Facebook, get back on the road to being his old self.
Case in point, I came back to see Oliver in front of a fan, looking just marvelous with his movie style wind blowing his mane. Oliver always knows how to position himself to for maximum fabulousness.
Thank you all!
He's still wobbly and weak in his hind quarters, but is able to use his back legs much more effectively. I'm really hoping that this means it was an injury that will continue to improve. Because of this, I've lowered the campaign goal to reflect the anticipated costs of emergency vet bills. He's going to my vet tomorrow, so I will post another update once we get back. To all of you, thank you so much from the bottom of my heart for helping this dear, sweet soul get better.
