Does anyone have any good(and fast!) fundraiser ideas? One of my ferals has showed up with a horrible eye infection. I was going to wait and see if it cleared up on it's own, as it often does with my ferals, but it's only getting worse. I've got to get him to the vet, but I've had so many unexpected vet bills lately that I don't have the funds to cover the bill! Anyone have and ideas at all for me? I've got to find a way to help him! I've had the feral cat program that I rent my trap from offer to give me help, but I really hate to accept thier money unless there is absoulutly no way I can raise the money myself. I do have a website with things for sale, but it's had no success-Anyone got any ideas for me? The vet bill is likely to be near $100, depending on what's wrong. Just an office visit and exam is $35, plus they'll probably have to sedate him to look at the eye, and that runs $50!

I doubt I could clean it's face-it's very wild. I'd probably loose my hand in the attempt, as well as loose control of the cat and have a wild cat running around my house. I talked to the feral cat trading post again, and they told me that since this cat probably hasn't been neutered yet(we haven't been able to catch him) the bill will probably be lower, because since he'll need to be sedated so the vet can look at his eye properly anyway, it will be covered in the neuter fee, and there's a feral fix program here in Utah that allows me to get feral cats altered for only $10, so all I'd have to worry about paying for is any medications he'd need. The feral cat trading post has also offered to loan me a crate the appropriate size for him for me to keep him in until he's well enough to be returned outside, and so that I can make sure the "tainted" food is eaten by only him.
I might set up a website with my ferals later today, but alot of them are to wild to let me get close enough to them to get a good picture, so I don't have pictures of very many of my ferals, including this guy I'm trying to help.
