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.
My cat Moro is my baby. Having had him from 7 weeks he is now 10 months-old.
Since I got him at 7 weeks he has been a snuggle puss, snuggling right into my neck and sleeping there for ages, and even fully grown he still snuggles. He adores my son and plays with him and our other 10 month old cat Amun normally.
When he had his accident he didn't play, he didn't cuddle. He cried until we found the break. Originally it was thought he had just bruised his leg.
Usually in great condition he has been to the vet twice in his short life, one for a small accident and the other for neutering. Since the changes at the PDSA we no longer get 3 free pet treatments, only one. Our other older cat is our free pet. Being on benefits its hard to get vet treatment let alone the price of surgery.
The reason I am asking for help is because my baby has had to have Orthopaedic surgery to his hip after a fall off the bath (he was playing with Amun) The ball joint has been removed due to the femoral neck being fractured, this type of fracture does not heal due to its position.
This operation has changed his life and hopefully will restore his bubbly crazy snuggly personality. That's why I need your help to pay for the surgery that has taken place. Funds are short and my son adores our cat but is missing out on certain activities as an unexpected result of an accident I did not predict would have such a consequence. My promise to anyone donating is I will get insurance!
As an aside, every single penny will go to Ashgrove Vets. If it goes over my target even that will go direct to them. They have an in house charity box where any extra money goes, and helps out towards costs for those struggling. This vet and his team are amazing and incredibly compassionate. I'd be stuck without them.

About the fundraiser
I'm a 31 yr old mum of a 4yr old boy and mum to 3 fur babies. I also have 4 snakes! This is my first time asking for this kind of help as it's quite a lot of money to be paid. The surgery has already been done and £30 a week may not seem much but when you only get £80 weekly...
