CHEAP FUNDRAISER PRINT SALE/CUSTOM ILLUSTRATIONS
My name is Ramsey and I make a zine called list filled with illustrations! If you like my zine, it's a good chance you like it because of the drawings, so I figured it was relevant to post about my illustration sale on here.
My cat, Stella, became very ill over the holiday and the only way to save her was for her to get surgery. Obviously, surgery of any kind, even for an animal, is very expensive. Since she was a young cat, I asked the doctor if a surgery would guarantee a 100% full recovery and he said definitely. I decided to go ahead with the surgery and deal with the costs. However, four days later when the vet called for me to take my cat home, she was still very very sick. The vet basically said she was in mine and 'god's hands now.' She still wouldn't eat on her own, I'd have to force feed her. She had no energy to even move around. Her temperature was dropping, and I was just thinking, 'what did I just pay you all that money for?!' We're talking over $1000.
I took Stella to another vet for a second opinion because things just didn't seem right. The second vet said it was obvious she was having a complication from the surgery and was still very sick. The only thing he could do was lots more tests, and would probably result in another surgery to fix whatever was going on inside. Because she was already so weak, she wouldn't likely survive a second surgery and we had to put Stella to sleep. $1600 and I lost my cat that I had for four years. Now I need to figure out how to pay off these bills.
I can't just ask for donations since having an animal friend is a responsibility that requires money, and not something I can expect sympathy for. However, I can think of creative ways to raise money for myself in a pinch, and that is what I'm doing.
With that said, I'm throwing myself a fundraiser print sale! Details below.
