Hey, this may be in bad taste, but take it as you will.

My cat will die soon because i am a poor bastard with crap credit history.

I love my cat. He is like the son i never had.

Time is short unfortunately. I need results before 8am PST tomorrow (Friday) 07/21/2006

Please take a look-see here if you can help in any way:

Hey, this is going to be annoying, and will probably sound like a chain letter thing, but I need a little bit of help. It might be something that you ( yeah, maybe you~! ) can help me with if you are so inclined.

Our cat, Bastion, got sick recently and was taken to the animal hospital. He may have some sort of liver disease or blood disease. They don't know for sure because they can't do anymore tests without first doing a blood transfusion. (he is losing too much blood) We just don't have the money up front to pay for this, even the downpayment to make payments. He will die if he doesn't get more treatment. With treatment, he has a good chance.

I'm not asking for free money (though that would totally kick ass) but i need ideas. I won't be able to live with myself if i let my baby die and then find out i could have done something to prevent it afterwards.

This is what i have.

I make $512 a week as long as it's a 5 day week
I can possibly get a payday loan
I have junk credit or i would be able to use a card
probably can't get a normal loan because of bad credit

Our rent is like effing $1000/mo

I am an artist. I will take crazy commissions for money (i will take it out on the cat later XD) check out what little I have (but it's good stuff!) at:

http://riot---.deviantart.com

My wife is a much better artist than i am. View her incredible stuff here:

http://kimaya.deviantart.com

I can also do some nice web design, i can make logos, i can do flash animations too. Really good ones. Interactive menus, buttons, movies, you name it (as long as it's not a game, not that good yet)

I'm a musician... crap, i have lots of skills. Name something and i might be able to do it. I never really thought these things meant too much, but maybe i've been saving them up for a moment like, right now.

You can even help with something so little as co-signing for us at the animal hospital. Our credit is junk, we couldn't pass the credit check. If you want to take the risk, and put your trust in me, you can co-sign for us. The card has no Interest or APR, so the balance will not grow in that way. I will be working hard to pay it off. I have the gumption. I wouldn't be posting this journal if i didn't.

Another important thing is that the tests have to be done tomorrow morning! That is Friday, 07/21/2006. They open at 8am PST, and that is the soonest you can call i believe. They have to be done first thing when they open for him to have a good chance.

This is the info for the animal hospital if you want to call (they may also need you to fax info):

Desert Dunes Animal Hospital
(760) 345-8227
42430 Washington St
Bermuda Dunes, CA 92203

Bastion wants to live. The Vets have said that. We can see that when we go to visit him. He is so young, he has so much life ahead of him. He is barely over 6 months old. He hasn't even been alive for a year. Those 6 months have been beautiful though. He is a treasure. I cannot let him go.

I prostrate before you. It's embarassing. Yeah, well i gotta pull out all the stops on this one. Let me know, please... if you have any ideas or help for me and Bastion.

Sorry for the annoying spam. Thank you for listening though. There are a couple pics of Bastion in my Pic section of Myspace, please take a look, he is adorable, so beautiful. (he is the black one)

Anyway, enough of blaring your ears out. Thanks again. Live long and prosper.

- Johnny


Thanks, and sorry for the spam. Do as you will to me.

How exactly is the cat losing blood? You didn't say anything about him being cut.

How do you know he has a good chance of living with more treatments if you don't even know what's wrong with him?

This made me sad. I wish I could help but I don't have money to spare and my credit history sucks as bad as yours. Have you asked about financing? Hospitals (of all varieties) tend to not care quite so much about your credit history.
