Please take a moment and read this page we put up for our cat TY:


He desperately needs help.

Thank you and God Bless

I'd like to direct members' attention to our rules, http://www.thecatsite.com/forums/showthread.php?t=15184 , particularly regarding solicitations:
TheCatSite.com does not encourage or promote solicitation of money from our members....From time to time you will see some posts come up to ask for donations for a cause. It is YOUR responsibility to check out these solicitors to the best of your ability. More often, you will see pleas from individuals asking for money to be sent directly to them to assist with veterinary bills. Some come up with slick websites, others just have heartwrenching stories. In each of these cases, the poster is allowed ONE thread, to be placed in Cats SOS.

In either case, if you feel compelled to donate money ask for references, phone numbers, call around the area and find out if this is a legitimate cause or a scam. For personal pleas, get the veterinarian’s contact information and send money directly to the veterinarian to help with bills for that particular cat. If that information is not available, you have the answer if the plea is legitimate or a scam.

Be very careful before you send any money: no matter how effective the plea is, check it out first before opening your wallet.

Hey Jcat,

thanks for the post, I certainly want people to feel comfortable, as this is a legitimate request for help. So any one who lives in my area...Las Vegas and wants to come over and meet TY in person, can do so...or if you want to call me and talk over the phone....I will give you my cell phone.....or if you want my Vets phone number.....I will give that to you as well....simply send me a private message.

TY desperately needs this surgery, and its a shame that others use similar ploys as a scam. But that is not me, my name is Keith Mosher and I am a veteran of the first Gulf War and currently work as a Mail Man...here in Vegas. My wife is out of work for the past year due to an illness, which is the reason I cannot afford the surgery for TY.

This is all very true and you can find it out for yourself, if you do a little digging. For those that can help, I really really appreciate it.

Please pm me with your vet's address and phone #. I can donate a little. Like 20$ I will send it to the vet with a note that it is to be used for TY's surgery.
If you get enough small donations, they could add up to the point where you can handle the difference.

Maybe you could work out a deal with the vet, or check out the cost with other vets?

Good luck.
