It is well know that there’s a special place in hell for people who don’t like cats. (John Hargreaves’ fireworks banning cat being a strong contender for a special exemption)
So if you’re of a mind to help a little stray kitten found by the Canberra Roller Derby League there’s a crowdsourcing page running to cover surgery:
Ed is a domestic shorthair who began his life negelected and abandoned by is his wonton feral mother. Ed struggled to make it on his own, but a roller derby training venue is no place for a little kitty. With no one to turn to, Ed became a cattawalling banshee until he was discovered one night by skater Mutha Farquar,who coincidentially had become the foster mother to Camel-Ed’s older brother from a previous litter-some months earlier. It looked like Ed’s luck was finally changing.
But Mutha noticed that there was something different about Ed. Something not quite right. Ed didn’t have eyelids. The Vet diagnosed Ed with having Eyelid Atresia a condition caused during gestation that results in blindness if left uncorrected. This very necessary surgery costing $4000 is needed ASAP as it is now effecting Ed’s quality of life.
All money raised will be used for Ed’s surgery. Any addditional funds raised will be used to catch Ed’s mum and have her desexed and rehabilited from her life as a car park cat.
