    Story

    I found my gorgeous cat Nero, who is not quite a year old yet, stumbling around in my daughter's room. I checked him over to find most of the skin on the bottom half of his hind leg missing. I panicked, got him to the vet and after X rays I have two options. Amputate the leg or try and stitch it up with the prospect of skin grafts if it doesn't work. I discussed it with the vet and they admitted they would be happier trying to save the leg and I feel the same way. Amputation is cheaper, sure, but I can't put a price on Nero's happiness.

    The vet thinks he was hit by a car and maybe dragged. We're lucky his injuries aren't worse. Tough little dude.

    Stupidly I haven't arranged insurance for him yet. My fault.

    I'm looking at upwards of two grand trying to save his leg and I don't have it. I have always paid my way and hate going cap in hand but I could really use some help and intend to pay it forward. This hurts my pride but I need to try and save his leg. If you can help, however little, it would mean a huge amount.

      Thought I'd give an update. Neros leg had been saved!!! It was a long road for the little dude and there's still some healing to be done. The bandage is off but he still can't go out which is driving him mad. The good news though is that it was all worth it. He's a tough little fighter. Thanks to all who donated. It all helped.

      So the vet is optimistic about saving neros leg but says we're looking at around six weeks to recover. We're having to take him in daily for dressing changes, which are expensive because they have to sedate him, because he had an infection in the wound. He's brighter every day and is still purring away.

      We were allowed to bring Nero home today but he's on crate rest and isn't very happy. The good news from the vet is that there's no obvious sign of necrotic flesh on his leg and seems to be making progress. The bad news is that he'll need ongoing care and it could be a long road.
