한국 사람이 아니다

There's a kitty in the world who needs your help.


I know it's tough times and all, but...this is Maddy, and thispoor little kitty girl was shot in the face and will actually survive with extensive surgery. Of course, extensive = expensive, so if you have anything to spare...
I have to say, this is a thing I love about the internet and the little community we've forged for ourselves. I would like to think that if Harri ever needed help like this, people would be there for him.

You are awesome!

Of course, I realised hours laters that it could totally be a scam...because I am always too trusting, Dave says. But who would lie about that?

Plus, the friend I got it from is on her friends list, so he wouldn't post it if it wasn't true.

I'm just paranoid.

No. That's not being paranoid, it's just a fact in today's world.
People do come up with brilliant scams for money.
All you can do is hope that it's for real, and if not, that they have eventually live with what they've done.
Whether it be now or somewhere down the road, it will catch up with them.
Karma is a bitch.

No, I know...it's just the "Oh! Poor kitty! Send her money" reflex is instantaneous. The "Wait. How do we know there even is a kitty?" reflex takes like 4 hours to kick in...

OK, how do I help. Where do I send money. I'm sending Uncle Guido to deal with whoever shot Maddy. No more kneecaps for YOU, Bud.

Maaaan. I read about that last night and my heart goes out to them. We can barely afford Cinder's vet bills at the moment as they keep piling up but I am sending well wishes.

Yeah. If something like this happened to Harri, I don't know what I'd do.

Cinder?

That was the name of our beloved Siamese (RIP: 1987-2003)

Sniff.
