Raising money to help Smeagol fight FeLv and FIV.

* I am now offering a special gift to anyone who donates $100 or more! The highest donor (over $100) will receive a Schecter diamond series electric guitar signed by the bands Coal Chamber and Drowning Pool! Also, those who aren't able to donate that much will be entered into a raffle for various other gifts. *

Smeagol is my best friend and the sweetest cat I've ever known. Everyone who has ever met Smeagol knows he is special and instantly falls in love. You can just sense his kind aura and can't help but connect with him. Living with him for 8 years, we have the greatest connection and bond to each other. When other people let me down, he has been the only one there for me and never judges.
That's what our pets are for, they give us unconditional love in what can sometimes be such a cruel world. So it is our job to give them the same back. They can be happy, excited, and healthy but they can also get sad, depressed and sick, just like us. Problem is, when they get sick they can't take care of themselves. Too many people end up euthanizing their pets when medical costs become too much, or even worse just as soon as they find out they're sick. We wouldn't treat our human friends or family like that, our pets should be no different.
Smeagol has just tested positive for FeLv and FIV otherwise known as feline leukemia and feline aids. These viruses suppress the immune system, making it difficult to fight off other infections and sicknesses. There is no definite cure for either. It is possible that Smeagol also has lymphoma, but we won't know for sure untill more tests can be done. He is home right now because I couldn't afford to keep him in the hospital any longer. It breaks my heart to know he is so sick, but luckily there are treatments available and all hope is not lost for him.
Medical care is expensive and luckily I have some money saved for emergencies but after just 2 days, it's decreasing quickly. Pet insurance would not help at this point and I have applied for credit cards and personal loans to help. Unfortunately interest rates can be so high I'll be paying off the debt for years, so I need all the help I can get.
I'm only asking for $1500 for now but treatment may cost a lot more. If you'd like to help, please donate. Smeagol and I would be forever grateful and you could save his life! When you do good for others out of the kindness of your heart, it is always returned to you when you need it most. If you can spare anything at all please, be our angel. You are not only helping Smeagol get better, you are also helping me get through the most difficult time in my life.

If you have any questions, comments or concerns please contact me through facebook or call me directly if necessary at 401-206-2689.

I am also offering to sell some clothes, tarot/numerology readings, reiki, talismans and other hand crafted work and all of the money would go to Smeagol's care. If you are interested in purchasing something for Smeagol's benefit please contact me.

Thank you.
