I am sure a lot of you know my cat Gizmo, for those of you who don’t this is him
On the 15th March (so tuesday) he went missing, weirdly enough we had a cat called Jones, who was also ginger who went missing exactly the same time last year
(This is Jones, easy for some to get confused)
I was worried, Gizmo, is one of those cats that follows my son to school, will come with the dog for a walk and generally always there 5 minutes before meal time. But Giz, came in at around 10.15pm miowing, about what I thought was his dinner.
Turns out I was wrong, his right back leg was badly broken. When I say badly, it was the wrong way round. We hadn’t got insurance for Gizmo, instead we had been putting money aside instead.
Since it was so late, I had to take him to the emergency vets, that was just above £500.
Then on the 16th March, we picked him up and took him to our regular vet, who had to amutate the leg
Costing another £700, so yep now we are above the emergency fund, and we are a low income family, so I thought I would be cheeky and set up a go fund me account for Giz.
If you can afford it and would like to give something I would appreciate and send cookies, I am assuming we are going to have to cover the bulk of it, but anything will help.
So yep that is why I wasn’t around yesterday, anxiety was extreme, but he is home now, very vocal which is a relief, and I am so thankful he made his way home, if he had gone missing my son would of been devestated and for those who say I should of put him down, one you probably never owned an animal. Two you never had a toddler who loved his cat and three there was no way I was putting down what seemed to be a healthy animal. I don’t know how he is going to cope on 3 legs, but the rest of him was still healthy.
