Hello, my name is Lucy, I live in Greece. I love living here but all too often the animals need help.
Last night, Monday 27th Sept, whilst walking the dogs, I found a ginger kitten crying. As it tried to walk towards me it was obviously badly injured. No broken skin but broken bones.
Today I took her, it's a girl, to my local vet. She's had an x-ray and the vet found a broken hip femur on the left leg and a broken knee joint on the right, probably from a road accident. Luckily the vet is a top orthopedic surgeon, one of the best in Greece. He can operate and pin the broken joints but... and here comes my need to ask for your help... the cost will be €300. He's made good price for me because it's a rescue kitty, they're good like that here, but still I just don't have that kind of spare cash. Rent is due and utility bills are unpaid, but I just couldn't walk away from this little creature needing help.
Please help me raise enough money so she can have her operation. Time is of the essence here because she's growing so fast the bones will heal by themselves but with deformity and loss of flexibility. The vet must operate in the next days.
Any amount you can give for Ruby is hugely appreciated.
Thank you so much.
