My cat was hit by a speeding driver

Recommended Posts

My one cat, Precious, was hit by a speeding driver on Friday morning. He's in hospital with a broken jaw, ripped open leg, and possible broken hip joint. It's absolutely killing me to see my baby in this condition. He's stable at the moment, but we'll probably only know on Wednesday what the prognosis is on his hip.

 

Of course the hospital bills are just racking up (we're currently on about R8000 / $720 and rising), so I've swallowed my pride and started a GoGetFunding drive to help cover the hospital costs. A few of my Dragonmount friends have been incredibly generous with their hard-earned money, for which I am eternally grateful!

 

If anyone would like to follow the story, here is the link: https://gogetfunding.com/please-help-my-precious/

 

Should you be willing to share the link on social media, I would be very grateful. Obviously donations would be welcome, but only if you can comfortably afford it and feel that it's appropriate.

 

In the mean time, I'm not going to be around much. I'll be here when I can, though.

I tried to reply to you, Elgee! On messenger but I don’t think it went through. 

 

I hope your kitty is getting better. ❤️

So sorry to hear about the accident Elgee. I hope he makes a speedy recovery

Thank you, guys. He's doing better but had a freak out tonight (saw his own shadow) and I think he might have dislocated his pelvis again. Will have to see what he looks like tomorrow morning.

 

I'm so tired of this. I just want my poor baby to be well again!

Kitty is finally as healed as he's going to be (jaw is slightly off centre, and his pelvis isn't aligned 100% with his spine) so I'm back.

Poor thing. I think the driver should pay for his recovery. I know that isn't going to happen, but should.

Poor kitty. So sorry Elgee. My girls wanted a kitty, but we live next to a very busy road so I have warned them getting a pet isn't likely. Hugs to you.

 

Thank you, Jivenrah.

 

Yes for you some kind of indoor pet might be better?

Maybe in a few years we might revisit the idea. When we need feline attention we can go to my sister-in-law's place. She lives about three blocks away. Useful!

Cage we kept him in for 6 weeks, when he wasn't on Mommy's lap:

Yep. You're a proper cat owner when you realize that the cat is in charge. :tongue:
Worth it though. :wub:

I'm glad to see that he's on the mend. 

 

LoL yep!

 

I'm extremely grateful that he's mended so well, and of course for all those amazing friends who helped with the bills. Without them we'd be in a proper pickle.

    • Yes but there is opening yourself to channel and then there is a quick unintentional use.  If you notice before Rand became a channeler, fully aware of what he was doing and willing try to embrace the power, all you get are the side effects from channeling (the taking chances etc,,) but not the filth feeling.  After book 1, when the using the power and the side effects happened near the same time, all he gets is the filth.  The difference is he knows he can channel and needs to embrace the source to channel.  Just like the women who are starting to channel never seem to notice the warmth of touching the female half until they survive the side effects and become aware what they are doing.  A wilder like Nyn, had she stayed in the Two Rivers, never would of felt the feeling of opening herself to the source since she had built up a block, so it might have to do with you have to open yourself up to the power to feel the good or bad.     In one of Rand's lives in book 2 I believe he was a member of the Queen's guards and was lucky, he thought later he understood why but he didn't care.  He was suffering from touching the male half but was basicly a wilder and it was never said he was feeling the filth.  So I think a lot has to do with someone who channels but doesn't really know it or is never trained how to do it aren't fully opening themselves up enough to feel the filth or warmth.  They are incapable of doing anything more then a quick touch of the surface.   It's possible Rand would of started to feel nausea when he accidently channeled and not probably not understand why.  But there seems to be a difference between inadvertently channeling and intentionally channeling.
