I know it's a lot to ask for someone you guys don't know, but my best friend red_eft's cat, Ernest (as in the Importance of Being), is dealing with urinary tract blockage that's requiring major surgery. The infection first arose a few months back and has unfortunately returned, requiring either $400 to delay the problem or $2,500 surgery to solve it and save his life.
Here's a photo of Ernie after dealing with this the first time:
...And a shot of him with his brother, Algernon, inseparable as always:
Red's an awesome artist and is sickeningly well-versed in the entirety of the DC comics universe, and so if any of you have a bit to donate or want to commission her, please, please do. I put some of her work behind the cut, and you can check out her journal for a more thorough sample.
Again, I know this is a lot to ask, but Ernie is one of the sweetest cats I've ever met and it's hard to imagine Algie without him. Every little bit helps and is appreciated- her Paypal address is andsailedcalmlyonATgmailDOTcom if you want to be directly generous. :)
Thanks in advance,
