A little help from my friends...

Crowd funding.
It's a system that helps people raise money for various reasons online.
It's now my turn to try my hand at this.
I have just been to the vet this morning with Georgia and have
come home with a grim prognosis.
Double eye removal.
Seems that this sweet little feral kitten just had
too bad of an eye infection to save her sight.
I'm both sad and angry right now.
Sad for the obvious reasons that this little, joyful soul will
never be able to see her beautiful world from no choice of her own.
Angry at the fact that there are many irresponsible pet owners
out there that would enable this to happen.
I could go on and on about that but now is the time to move forward.
Now that Georgia has come into our lives at a time when we needed distraction
the most, I feel I have no choice but to care for her and help her
continue living her life as joyous as possible.
She is quite full of it, as most kittens are.
You can read the longer story on the link provided below.
Thank you so much.

Sending a tiny hug for Sweet Georgia ~ and one to you as well, for finding her, and having a good soul, and being willing to help her! She will grow up to be amazing!
An animal in need is a perfect distraction for keeping us from dwelling on the sad losses we animal lovers cannot avoid. Our household has recently suffered a very similar loss to yours... I've had to avoid all my favorite blogs (including my own) the last few months, it seems all my favorite places have lost beloved animals, and I can't read the stories without crying all over myself. (very awkward at work...)(yes, so I SHOULD be working at work...but you know....)
Hopefully the rest of this year will be filled with happy endings for all of us!

I'm so glad you found each other. Right this minute I have many tears, but I'll recover. What a beautiful, sweet soul. And you are a beautiful soul for wanting to love and help her. Things like this break my heart into a million pieces. I love animals with my entire being. I'm sure she senses love from you and maybe she feels safe now. I hope so. One of our cats came to us as feral. He began drinking water out of our koi pond, then we slowly started feeding him. After a little while, we trapped him and took him to our vet. This was 10 years ago. Now he's the most trusting, loving, affectionate kitty we've ever had. He's an indoor all the time kitty. We love him with all our hearts and can tell he loves us back. I like to do things the old fashioned way, and would like to send you a check. Is there a way to send you a message through blog and I can give you my e-mail and have your address? Would that be all right? Are you on facebook at all. I see the Gofundme things a lot there, and I've never donated to one because I don't like to do stuff online. But I could get in touch with you somehow through fb? It's up to you. But I'd sure like to help this little sweetheart.
