This is my cat.
His name is Bart. He’s named after the Flash. He’s the smartest cat I’ve ever had; he knows how to play fetch and loves it (with hair ties!) He talks back when I tell him to get off things. He was the runt of his litter, and I’ve had him since he could fit in a teacup, four and a half years ago. He’s always been curious, and I think it may be why he ended up eating something he shouldn’t.
Bart’s in the hospital as of today, because he hasn’t eaten anything in four days. I took him in Monday, and they gave him fluids and a shot of anti-nausea meds, but they admitted him tonight. Already, the bill’s approaching $1000 - and he’s likely to need surgery, which is going to add on another $2500 to the bill, and that’s not including the hospital stay. I’ve always tried to help out people when I can; if I have and someone else needs, it’s better to help and just tell them to pay it forward. I’d rather someone help someone else, than pay me back. But right now, I need help. First, and the most important thing: If you need some sort of graphic or webdesign work, I’m a professional web designer. I’ve been doing it in some form for nearly a decade. I do business cards, websites, email, logos, resumes, stationary, you name it. Please, if you have any work you need, I’ll do it. I’m desperate. I’m calling my student loan company in the morning and begging them to refund what I’ve paid them and put my loans in deferment so I can pay for this.
Second - I need help. If you don’t have work, but you do what I do (helping those in need, and either would like to be repaid OR want it just paid forward), I’m seriously asking. I’m terrified, and he’s still a baby to me - he’s only four and a half, and he’s so full of life and loves everybody.
So, yeah. Please, please, consider either hiring me, or if you have it in your heart and money to spare, donating. My donation address is firstname.lastname@example.org on either Amazon Payments or Paypal. I will either pay you back (if you want!) or pay it forward. I promise. If you are potentially looking to hire, message me and I’ll send you my portfolio website, and believe me, you’ll get a deal of a lifetime. (Edited to add: I’ve maxed out my Care Credit— the 516$ I had free as well as the 200$ from monday are now in my vet’s hands, and if I can get them to refund my student loan payment that’s another $503. I’m doing what I can and grasping at straws, but I just figured I’d ask. <3)
