Baby Girl is feral cat I found that was hit by a car. I am trying to raise money to help pay for her medical expenses.

Two weeks ago on my way to go Christmas shopping I came across a cat that was hit by a car. I knew I had to help her so I rushed her to my vet. The cat had a broken pelvis, a severe skin laceration, severe head trauma, and blood in her chest cavity. She was put on antibiotics and her skin laceration was stapled. After a few days we noticed some concerning symptoms so we took her back in to see the vet. After a few visits the doc said she had an air build up under her skin and her brain was swollen. She was put on steroids and now has to wear a tube stocking to help dissipate the air. On Friday 12/24 she went back in to get her staples removed, unfortunately later that afternoon the wound tore back open. This happened because the air under her skin kept the wound from healing properly. On Friday 12/31 she went back in to the vet for a check up, they said the wound will now have to heal on its own from the inside out and to keep putting antibiotic cream on it. The tube stocking has to stay on still ans she still has a huge air build up on her head so the doc put her back on antibiotic pills. She is doing much better though as time goes by, when we first got her she could barely move, wouldn't eat, and wouldn't go potty. Now she moves around at super fast speeds, is eating well after being put on a special food and diet supplement, and is going potty. She loves attention and loves to be held. She will meow when she wants to be picked up (since she can't jump). She is the most loving cat I have ever met! She has even taken a liking to my two dogs, earlier this week I caught her giving my dog Maximus a bath! We have given this loving cat the name "Baby Girl".

Taking in a severely injured cat means taking on a huge financial responsibility. I am an unemployed college student and my boyfriend is a part time postal worker. Baby Girl's medical bills to date are $755.54. Any support you can provide us would be greatly appreciated. If you know anyone who shares my animal passion please pass this on, we are truly relying on friends and family to help us. We both thank you very much for your time and help. Baby Girl thanks you for helping to give her a second life!
