    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    *update* 15.09.17 sadly Basil passed away yesterday. Thanks so much to any donors as not only have we lost our lovely boy we also have final bill of £1450. Our original target was £600 and it was incredible to reach it but in light of the final cost we have raised it to £700 in case anyone can help.

    I know that there are many life causes out there that will no doubt be closer to everyone's hearts but I thought I would create this fundraising page to see if anyone wants to help out. Any small donation will really help towards paying for these unexpected costs at a miserable time.

    I can pay you back in knitted things eventually at some point if that's something that might make you smile. Thanks and obviously we fully understand if you can't or don't want to donate as money is tight for everyone.

    Trish and Matt

      Sadly Basil has blocked again!! They are going to try to treat it with anti inflammatory things and pain killers so fingers crossed its irritation from something. If not then the only option is to turn his boy bits to girl bits and shorten his urethra. Bless him. X

      Basil update: So this wonderful cannonball head had a vets appointment today and has got the all clear!!!! He just has to finish the meds he has and stay on special cat food!!!! The end bill total is £1077 (after they kindly deducted one of the catheter charges) and our amazing friends and their connections raised an incredible contribution of £595 (which we'll get 557actual pounds from after fees from our pay half basil's bills just giving campaign) so half of it is covered. What a bloody great day!!!! Thanks everyone for just being amazing! X

      Basil had another vet check up today and so far so good! Which is brilliant news! The total vet bill for the last couple of weeks has come in slightly cheaper than estimated too thanks to the Vets being stars at £1100 so far so your donations have just really made our lives a million times easier in contributing half of Basil's costs to date. He still isn't eating and drinking properly but the vet is hopeful he's just sore and grumpy so fingers crossed the poor lad won't have to be poked and prodded for a while. Thanks again to all of you! X
