SIGNAL BOOST FOR TRIPE!
Hey folks, this adorable kittyface is Tripe, a tiny kitten who has been through some serious hardship in her so-far very short life. She was found by my partner’s cousin as one of a litter of abandoned kittens, she was missing one of her hind feet, and now, after having had the injured leg successfully amputated, she has broken her remaining hind leg, and she’s only about two months old. Despite all that she’s a happy and playful kitten, and her person (another cousin) is prepared to do whatever she needs to do to take care of her (she even looked into quality of life and associated medical issues for two-legged cats, but thankfully it doesn’t look like it will come to that), but this itty bitty kitty has racked up some GREAT BIG vet bills, and the vet wants her to have more surgery that her family can’t afford for the broken leg.
They already had a fundraising page set up for the whole litter well before they knew exactly what Tripe’s bills were going to be like, so if you can help financially, please do so. If you can’t donate, you can signal boost and maybe someone who can will see the post. And if you’d like to find out more, the kittens also have a Facebook page — be aware there are some pictures of Tripe’s stitches on there, but you’ll ALSO get to see more of her precious little face and some shots of her siblings. (The very latest updates have all been on personal pages since she’s no longer up for adoption, but news up through right after the amputation is there.)
