If you were linked here from facebook/twitter/tumblr, please click here for an update on my kitty.
A couple of people have asked me if they could contribute to help with Claire’s vet bills and after getting an update from the vet this evening (her blood sugar is still way too low even after eight hours with an IV full of sugar, she’s not flinching when you put your hand in front of her face i.e. she can’t see it i.e. she’s currently pretty blind) I can safely say ANYTHING HELPS because at this point I don’t know if I’ll be able to bring her home tomorrow, and every day she spends in the hospital is another $1,500-$1,900 (the picture of the estimate I posted before didn’t include taxes).
Anyway I’ve added a donation button to the righthand sidebar on my blog, and I’ll also put it at the end of this post. EDIT: I’ve removed the donation buttons because my bills are taken care of. Thank you again to everyone who helped out! I know it’s a big dumb internet cliché to ask for money to help pay your cat’s vet bills, but OH WELL.
I’m running a Cat Aid sale on my etsy shop, get 25% off your order with the code CATAID25. If you’ve been thinking about getting a glitter banner now’s the time! There’s some new stuff too; in addition to the fancy letters for the Christmas banners I’ve added custom ombre glitter banners. They’re really beautiful and also cost effective! Who wouldn’t want to buy one of those? Cat haters, that’s who.
I know it’s the holiday season and lots of people are stretched pretty thin financially, but I’m not even kidding, LITERALLY ANYTHING WILL HELP.

I’m glad she’s okay!
Thanks! I’m so happy she’s sitting next to me, alive with quiet dignity after suckling at the teat of the internet.
cackling at this comment tbh
There’s actually a lot of sugar in internet-teat-milk, no wonder grandmeow money pit is dying of diabeetus.
Wait, are you implying that she developed diabetes from eating too much sugar? Because that’s idiotic in the extreme. She’s a CAT. She eats CAT FOOD, not candy.
You probably think you’re being really cute and clever with your pithy use of old memes here, but you’re actually coming across as repulsive and callow. If I want to spend every last cent I make for the rest of my life on my cat, that’s my prerogative and none of your concern, and if other people want to give me a bit of their money to help, well, that doesn’t affect you either. No one forced you to donate, no one even forced you to read my blog post, so I don’t know why you’re so bent out of shape about it.
We’re never going to see eye to eye on this subject, since I’m a regular, normal human being with empathy and compassion towards innocent creatures, whereas you seem to be some sort of creepy sociopath who thinks requiring one day of medical attention should be an automatic death sentence. I’m not interested in your boring comments, so why don’t you take them and go back to whatever sad troll forum you crawled out of, because
