UPDATE: My kitty Sophie is home now, recovering from her ordeal. All seems to have gone well, which I am thankful for. If you want to see her in all her pathetic glory, here you go:
Please send positive, healing thoughts her way!
I am still doing ACEO commissions ($10/USA & $12/International [shipping included]) to help pay for her surgery. Send me a note if you would like one. ^^
Many, many thanks to KK and Agaave for your support! You guys rock! /UPDATEIt's hard to believe that in less than two weeks one can go from relatively happy and content to distressed and decidedly NOT content. Urgh.
The problem: my poor cat. Somehow she got her paws on like a two-foot length of red yarn and ATE IT. And now it's messing up her insides and she needs surgery to get it out. The surgery is decidedly not cheap, and although I'm definitely wiling to pay it (she's my baby, of course I'm going to do anything for her to ease her suffering and get her well!), it's going to hurt my funds. BADLY.
I'm not asking for charity, so don't worry.
I'm not setting up a special new Paypal account and begging for donations.
However, I am
trying to raise any amount of money that I can to help me with these costs. In the past, I offered sketches and line art and ACEO commissions; unfortunately I didn't get too many takers, so I don't know why I think it'll be any different this time around. Stupid optimism I guess.
Anyway, I'm going to try to do it anyway, cos my cat is worth it to me, and any small amount of money that I might be able to raise to help offset the costs of her care would be fantastic. **So, I'm opening ACEO commissions. $10 for US residents; $12 everywhere else. Those prices include me shipping it to you.** PLEASE NOTE ME IF INTERESTED. **

. I specialize in dragons, but I can do a lot of different animals, plus Pokémon characters if that's more your speed. Humans not so much. I realize the true spirit of ACEOs is trading, but I'm desperate here, so I hope all can be forgiven.
I also realize not everyone has the means (or desire) to buy non-essentials such as art during these tough times. Money is tight everywhere. Believe me, I know. So if you can't (or don't want to) personally help me by buying an ACEO commission, please spread the word around
. I would greatly appreciate it.
Also, just keeping my cat (and me, I guess!) in your thoughts, prayers, what-have-you's would be appreciated, too.
Thanks for listening/reading.
