As I had touched upon in the animal lovers thread, my feline has a number of now inoperable mast cell tumours across her body.
When this whole ordeal started, there was only the one recurrence which needed radiation therapy- at $1000 a session, feline oncology is not cheap.
My friends and I called numerous 'charitable organization', every animal themed one on the books, and some not, and all turned us down flatly for help. One (very well known) place even told my friend that since we can't take care of the cat, to just get rid of it.

As can be seen on the site, this is intended to grow beyond one cat, as we hope to gather enough funds to start a 'kitty' as it were for others in my position.
At the site, you can sign up for the newsletter which will keep you current on health, actions, auctions, etc. Cafepress will not flood your mailbox, nor will I.
