Chester's Vet Bills
Organized by: Ron Swanson
Chester the cat is a reserved cat. He doesn't run to lavish you with attention, instead he periodically greets you, to let you know that he thinks you're alright. He might just happen to appear in every room you are...you know...just incidentally.
To people who don't know him, he seems aloof, and serious. But once he gets to know you, then you catch glimpses of his quirk sense of humor. How all of a sudden he gets the mischievous crook in his tail and you know there's some joke he's going to play on you, and too late- off he goes at a lope, laughing.
Chester is a reserved cat, he doesn't look for fights, but unfortunately a fight came looking for him.
Being a temporarily designated backyard cat, he's exposed to these dangers and once he gets a serious wound it becomes even more imperative for him to be treated as soon as possible.
With wounds that are hard to photograph (he's sensitive about me being near them) infection is setting in. His face and forehead are swollen. Blood mats his fur. His eye leaks, and he's in pain, constantly rubbing his wound for relief.
He can barely keep his eye open (he's only doing so in the picture because he's trying to give me the "please", eyes since I took his treat for a picture). Infection could make him very well lose his eye, or his life.
Chester is six years old and my family. Please, help me save his life.
