    Weʼve raised £520 to Help cover vet bills for the feral cats living on our allotments

    Birmingham, UK
    Funded on Friday, 30th November 2018

    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.


    We care for seven (mainly) feral cats at Walsall Road Allotments in Birmingham. They have all been neutered and are all fed every day. They repay us by catching rats and mice and by keeping us company while we work on our plots. We fund-raise to try to cover vet bills but we were recently faced with one for £520 when E.T., one of the cats had to have both ears removed because of cancer. (The photo shows E.T. the day after surgery)

    It would be a massive weight off our minds if we knew there was more money in the kitty in case any more kitties need vet treatment.

    Thank you for anything you can spare.

      Almost 3 months after her operation to remove cancer from her ears and E.T. is doing really well. Thank you so much for your support.

      I am overwhelmed by all your support, thank you so much. 3 weeks ago E.T. had her operation to remove most of her ears because of cancer. They have healed really well and the swelling has gone down now. She is a very happy little cat who also has Wobbly Cat Syndrome which makes her walk in a funny way. This doesn't stop her from having a normal life on the allotment with her friends Wanda and Red Fred. This photo was taken this morning.

    I manage a large allotment site in Birmingham UK. We care for 7 cats there. They are all neutered, fed every day and receive vet treatment when they need it.
