Marty the kitten needs surgery

Forever Homes for Everyone has a heartbreaking post about a little kitten who needs a lot of help to pay for a lifesaving surgery. (Or he'd be sent to the bridge way too soon).

Handi Pets also has info about Marty. I made a small donation and received a very appreciative email in return. Here it is:

I want to take the time to sincerely thank you for your generosity; thank you so much for donating to Marty. Your help is so appreciated and I hope others elsewhere soon begin to follow your lead and donate as well. I hope you know what an amazing and caring person you are by helping Marty. I never even imagined that complete strangers would help our kitten, and so many people have proved me wrong. I check his page so many times a day and am so appreciative each time there is a new donation. Please spread the word to fellow animal lovers and friends so that Marty has a chance to live a great life. You truly are now one of Marty's angels and we will keep you posted on how everything goes. Thank you again for supporting Brad and I; It means so much. I have complete faith that Marty will get his surgery soon. We have a new consultation next Monday, so I'm going to talk face to face to the surgeon directly about doing a payment plan. To say the least, the hospital hasn't been much help at all. I'm hoping by going in and talking to the surgeon himself, and not through assistants and receptionists, I can figure out a way to wave some costs. Thanks for your concern and helping us out!
Much love and thanks,
Amber M

Since he can't type and thank you himself, here's some recent cute pictures! (at beginning of this post)

We can help, can't we? Donate $30 (send to me and I'll forward it.)and I'll send you a Hairy Blankie :-)

The Kitty Krew said...

Oh, what a cute kitty and what an awful story about his former owner. We've made a donation for the little cutie and hope he'll get the surgery he needs soon.

(Peggy, this will be our donation for the blankie for the Halloween contest, we've been having trouble with the CB donation site!)

Purrs and hugs,
The Kitty Krew

How do we send them a donation?

Glogirly and Katie said...

To send a donation go to the Handipets blog page. There is a link in Peggy's post. This is the web address:

There is a "Chip In" box titled Marty's Surgery and you can donate just by clicking. I made a small donation a week or so ago, I believe I had an option of using Paypal or a credit card. Right away I received a really sweet thank you from Amber.

I checked the status of the donations tonight and $2,323.51 of the $3,500.00 has been raised. 106 people have contributed.

Please give what you can. Even a few dollars helps.

Thank you Katie, you said that so much better than I could have.

We donated a few green papers last week to Marty's surgery. We wish we could have sent more.

Furkidsmom said...

We donated to Marty's cause already. We were hoping he would have enough green papers by now.

Oh, with these kinds of posts, I can see how much love we have for our kitties. I will send some money as well for sure. Peggy, please go to my blog to see that I am writing an article about the kitty blogs I follow and I would love for you to participate so much and take the award as well.
Now I'm off to help Marty...
