Yeah I'm not sure where you read that either. *puzzled*
Man those videos were amazing. Made me feel like a bit of a lazy cat owner. And of course...the montage almost made me cry. She does seem very special, I hope he is able to care for her.
The donations made seem to be just for food, so I hope he's planning on getting a job and paying for her to have that surgery. I never quite know what to think when people say "help me pay for my pet's operation, I don't have enough money or a job." I almost think they are better off rehoming the cat to someone who *can* pay for it. But if I were in that situation, I'd do everything to keep my cat I suppose. I'd be working my butt off to try and find a job, or getting a loan. I suppose making a website and asking for donations wouldn't be out of the question...I love my cats too. But if it meant the difference between getting life-saving surgery and not getting it and dying, I would definitely rehome them.
