Okay, so. I’ve been extra suicidal lately and very very lonely, and I’ve been really regretting not trying to do more about something that happened a while ago.
About a year or two, my cat- Mr. Dude, my handsome boy(look how polite and gentle he is http://azikeos.tumblr.com/post/28877109395- developed some problem with his urinary tract that caused him to start peeing outside of the box, and yowling when he ‘went’. I have a habit of ignoring problems(between being autistic, chronic depression, and my other issues I get really easily overwhelmed and consequently shut down) so, while I was really concerned about him and did want to help him, I kind of just pretended there wasn’t really a problem.
My stepfather, however, is a cat-hater and has always kind of barely tolerated me and my mom having cats. Mom took him to the vet a couple times and we spent several days trying to get a sample of Mr. Dude’s pee, he was diagnosed with… something? and was medicated for it, but it didn’t seem to help at all. Mom and I failing to find him another home, my stepdad took Mr. Dude out to the warehouseplace he works at and let him loose.
Ever since then I’ve kind of been trying to forget that it ever happened, because I still cry whenever I think about Oreo II(another of my cats) escaping, and Mr. Dude meant the world for me- he was my baby boy; he cuddled with me, he mewed with me, he sat politely with the dogs and I snuck him tablescraps, he slept with me in my bed and he cuddled with me on the couch. He was my second best friend- coming only behind my boyfriend and tying with my mom’s cat(Cleo). He was my precious baby and he was my world and Whenever I put too much thought into him being gone it feels like someone’s plunged a knife into my chest.
I’m pretty sure that, at the time, I was either not yet on disability income or was but didn’t have nearly the amount I would’ve needed to help Mr. Dude more. Now, over a year later, I’ve got some more money and have been a little more capable of thinking about Mr. Dude without completely breaking down. I /miss/ him, more than I’ve ever missed anything, and I want him back. But I still don’t have much money, and I’m gonna probably need to get him flea meds and tick meds and de-wormer(s) and extra food. I may need to get him to a groomers so he can be washed and/or shaved. And I might need to get him other things(treats and toys! I need to pamper my boy), ON TOP OF getting him to the vet so his urinary tract problem can be addressed.
I’m setting a goal of about $1,000 for his vet visit(s) and meds, with another $200 or so for the de-parasiters and stuff. Like I said, I have SOME money but not a lot, so I’m asking for donations. I don’t expect a lot, but Mr. Dude is my darling and I want him back. Any money I get will be going towards him, and if I don’t get enough or can’t get him back the money will be set aside incase Cleo(my mom and my’s cat) or future pets need to see the vet. I’ll be eternally grateful for any money you guys are kind enough to give me.
If you send me any money at all I’ll write down your name or URL in a notebook, which I’ll keep with me forever. I’ll also make a post with your URL, thanking you for your support.
If you send over $4, [in the US, maybe international] I’ll send you a Thank You card and probably a doodle or two.
Over $10 and I’ll draw your feral(preferably canine) character, probably traditional but maybe digital.(I’ll probably do official characters too) OR three doodle-bookmarks(doodle-bookmarks will look a little something like this, but cut up into smaller strips https://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_mbhowgDdb11risltuo1_500.jpg on one of several different colors of cardstock)
$15 gets you TWO drawn characters (maybe mailed in US, possibly international??)
$20 and I’ll mail (probably only in the US) you three [total] drawings or a feral character or three AND a couple doodle-bookmarks if you want them. Otherwise I’ll do four total drawings(traditional or digital) and post them
$50 and I’ll do a custom foam fursuit head for you!! ( http://azikeos.tumblr.com/post/85251243586 ) Yes it’s cheaper to commission me but for a $50 I’ll throw in 2 or 3 of the extras that I charge for(I’ll need you to pay shipping too; my goal is to get money, remember?) OR if you really wanted I could fill you up a sketchbook but it would probably mostly be my animals or maybe still-lifes??? Some of your characters(probably ferals but maybe 1 or 2 peoples/anthros/etc) too
Of course you could just give me the money without any rewards aha that works too but y e a h
I really miss my baby and I want to get him back :C
My stepdad took Mr. Dude out to his work well before April 2013 but he recently(the day I’m posting this, actually) saw Mr. Dude and says he seemed well enough and apparently ‘chubby’(which I hope means he’s a good mouser and not wormy), and I really want to see about rescuing him as soon as I can.
My art tag is http://azikeos.tumblr.com/tagged/adicanart ! ! ! It’s mostly writing but y e ah, there’s some of my traditional stuff on there
TL;DR: I really miss my cat- my best friend- but he has some sort of UTI and needs to be rescued from a field and brought to a vet for treatment. I’m broke and disabled and donations/commissions would be a blessing and I would kiss you forever if you helped me out.
