Sakura in Tochigi prefecture rescued a tiny kitten called Anna when she was just 3 weeks old. She's been a playmate for for Sakura's daughter these last few months and part of their family. About a week ago, Anna fell from their 7th story apartment and miraculously survived. However, she has suffered extensive injuries including two broken legs and air in her lungs. This comes at the worst possible time for Sakura's family. As a temporary worker from Malaysia, she doesn't earn an income during the summer months. With a child with kindergarten tuition, the 150,000 yen(2,000 USD) price tag is almost impossible. Sakura lives in a prefecture with very little resources for rescued animals or low cost animal care. The vet has refused to do the surgery without funds and Anna is at risk for serious complications without surgery. I can also tell you from experience that vets in this country will not put animals down so this kitten is facing of future of pain and inability to walk.
We've raised more than half of the money Sakura needs and the faster we raise it, the faster Anna can come home and put a stop to these medical bills. I know this isn't as glamorous as showing everyone you can dump ice on your head or as devastating as the typhoon in the Philippines last year, but for a family out there this little kitten is an important part of it.
I don't even know if people really read this blog anymore. It even seem wrong for me to ignore this space for so long and then ask people for money, but I want to reach as far as I can for this family. You can use your paypal account to send money in whatever currency you use. It's fast and for most relatively painless to lose a few dollars, yen, or pounds.
