Sorry im reposting this so more people can see

Hi Tumblr,

You guys see that adorable cat up there? That’s my baby, Alfred (like the butler from batman?). Though he usually prefers Fred or Alfie. The black cat in the bottom corner is his best friend, Hazel. Alfred is probably the sweetest cat you will ever meet. He likes cuddling, playing outside, purring loudly, and swallowing things he shouldn’t. The problem is that swallowing things isn’t really good for cats. Alfie here recently swallowed something, we don’t know what, and it got stuck in his small intestine, blocking his digestive tract. Basically this means he can’t poop. He pukes up his feces because he can’t pass them. And he can’t eat. On top of all of this, this blockage damages his intestinal tract. It will cause his small intestine to shrink, become brittle, and burst- killing him.

Right now, my family and I have two options: Go into surgery or euthanize him. Euthanization is there to make his death as painless as possible. It’s the last thing we want to do, but my step-dad is losing his job and we just can’t afford the surgery Fred needs to save his life. With the expense of the surgery of itself, plus the anesthetic, plus antibiotics, plus the overnight treatment, plus the fluids, etc, you can see how the price just adds up. This is where you come in. 

I am asking you, tumblr, to donate to save Alfred. I wouldn’t ask this if it wasn’t important, but this is the only way i have to save his life. He’s only 9 months old. He hasn’t even finished growing yet. We rescued him from the humane society in November, and he has quickly become a part of our family. We don’t want to see him go- especially not so soon, and not over something as stupid as swallowing some small toy or something. 

I understand times are tight for everyone, but this is the only way I know to save Fred. I’ve seen Tumblr reblog a girl to get herself a fluffy chicken. I’ve seen Tumblr keep people in college or in their apartments. I’m crap at art and I don’t have anything to offer you guys. But if you can donate, I am begging you to help. If you can’t, please reblog so that others who can might see this. Our goal is $2000, which will put the remaining cost into my family’s price bracket. I know it’s a large goal and that it’s a lot to ask, but i’ve seen Tumblr accomplish great things. Anything helps and all support is appreciated. 

If you can DONATE HERE.

Thank you all from me and my family, and an extra warm thank you from Alfred. 

If we can even get close to our goal im sure we can find a way to cover the rest

If we could just get everyone to donate at least a dollar we can make it happen! Please help donate a dollar or post this on popular blogs and ask their followers to donate a dollar each since i don’t have to many followers

Just One Dollar Could Save A Life.

HELP IM DESPERATE! THANK YOU!!

(If you are a tumblr famous blog or have a lot of followers…..or actually and followers please ask that all your followers pitch in to donate a dollar each so we can reach our goal!!!!) THANKS

Update on Fred. Fred recovered from his incident with the nerf dart that miraculously went through his entire GIT. Even when we were told it was his end and after I scheduled his euthanasia appointment when he started getting worse. Then the day his euth appointment was he passed the dart and made a quick recovery.

I am amazed not only by this cat but also by the people here on tumblr. That day we also learned that we had raised over $1300 for Fred’s surgery between that and a donation from a rescue organization we could have done the surgery if he hasn’t passed the dart.

So here is Fred saying thank you right before he crawled up onto my lap purring.

Alfred update

Good News!!! The vet said Alfred looks Great!!! They are so Happy for him and Amazed tooo!!! As are we and many of you guys too! The vet does not seem concerned about his cold even though she agrees it is weird that he got it now but it’s not in his lungs, just his sinuses so everything should be good. She said if the cold got worse we should take him and give him the medication he took when he and my other cat were kittens and had bad colds but nothing serious is likely to happen. He should be better in 5-10 days. Thank you so much to everyone from everyone in my family, Fred, and myself included of course!! And my mom would like to throw in an extra thank you from herself since she is very attached to Feed as well and was devastated before knowing that Fred might die. You guys have brought us back faith in that there are good kind heart-ed people out there. It’s sometimes hard to believe in people with all the horrible things that happen but it’s good to know that not everyone is like that and that people do really care for other’s needs!! Thanks SO Much!!! and i’m sending everyone their money back, because it looks like were not gonna need it anymore and hopefully it will do more good with you guys!! THANKS SO MUCH!!!!

So relieved to see that Fred is still hanging in there! I hate going to bed at night because i’m afraid he’ll get worse during the night:( So glad nothing has gotten worse yet, but i still feel horrible for my poor baby. He’s so strong. Just 285 more five dollar donations left and Fred can finally have his surgery! Please hurry though he needs is ASAP!
