Sick Cat--Please Help
(Previously posted on Wednesday; I brought it up to the top because the problem is still current)
Rarely do I talk about my personal life here, but this is a bit of an emergency.
My cat Artemis, whom I've had for almost 4 years now, whom I brought out here from Chicago with me and who's just about all I have now in the world, took terribly sick Tuesday night and is suffering and in a bad, bad way from the looks of things. She's the sweetest, nicest cat, and this is what she looks like(though she's considerably heavier now):
I am without a day job, and thus am without funds to have this taken care of. I ask all of you for help. If you can, please send whatever amount you can(but at least a dollar would be good) through Paypal at this address: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please mark it "Artemis Fixit Fund," so I'll know.
I will thank everyone that does publicly here(unless you ask me not to), and any excess amount will be refunded to the donors. Please, please help. As I said, right now, she's almost all I have. And she's suffering, and it's killing me to not be able to help.
Thank you, and sorry for the personal post.
Update: so far one donation received, though more are still needed. Thank you to Andrei Molotiu
, and be sure to buy his new book, "Abstract Comics.
Update 2: a second one from Lucy White
, one from Melanie Murray, and one from a fella I know who doesn't want me to let people know he's secretly a softie. Thank you.
Update 3: and a donation from the estimable Chad Parenteau, whose site
you should go visit right now. Also my friend Angie Chen. Thanks, folks.
I'll be taking her in tomorrow(Friday), and I will update on her progress as I know. At the moment she is weak, but stable. It's fortunate she was such a healthy cat before she got sick. A weaker cat might have gotten much worse by now.
Further update I should have posted a long time ago:
She came out fine, and to this day is scarily healthy, thanks to the help of you kind people
