A Good Cause

Some booger eatin' moh-ron threw this lady's cat off a roof. Bastard! She's run up $5000 worth of medical bills. I know. What animal is worh $5000? Howza 'bout an animal you love? My black cat Doofus ran up about $2000 worth of medical bills before I had to put him to sleep. The vet finally had to tell me I had to let go.

Go over to her site and help her out.

It was Shizgirl who told me about this. See, even though she suffers from BDS (Bush Derangemnt Syndrome) it doesn't make her a bad person.

Who did such a thing? Was he/she apprehended/arrested? What was the outcome? I browsed the site but saw nothing about the dispensation of the case. Anybody know?

Indigo, the owner doesn't know who actually did it. Wampi was found in the alley, near death, after the booger-eatin' moh-ron had already departed. She's more concerned with getting her cat well right now. She also has a five month old baby girl to contend with. Talk about a full plate.

Denny: Bush Derangement Syndrome? LMAOOOOOOOOOO! Speak for yourself, hon. You're the one who thinks he's a hero.

I don't think he's a hero. I think he's better than anyone the Dimocrats put forth.

The Jack-ass that threw that darling little cat off the roof needs to be strung up by the unmentionables from the same roof top. I have a little one-year-old Calico named Choe and she thinks she's Super Cat. She likes to go roof-skipping in my neighborhood if I don't keep an eye on her. ;-)

Was glad to help Wampi. Thanks for the link. I know how hard it is when an animal close to you needs a vet and the money is not there. I offered to loan her a nice .44 auto-mag for the person who did it also.

This sounds so much like the email going around asking for donations for the vet bills of a dog, "Suki" adopted by a group of Marines serving in Iraq. The amount is also familiar, $5000, as is the ability to accept donations through PayPal...

Can Wampi's vet bills be verified? Copy of a police report? Newspaper clippings?

Sorry to be so cynical, but there's just too many scams going on that prey on good intentioned people.

Hi Denny,

I just want to thank you so much for the donation and for helping spread the word about Wampi. The person(people?) who threw him off the roof was/were never caught unfortunately. The morning it happened was a blur for me too, my husband was working all night and he was on his way home, Wampi had disappeared (managed to open the window that has a broken latch on it and *still* hasn't been fixed by our landloard) and the baby was crying and I was doing my best to stay awake after being awake for almost 48 hours. Then the intercom rang and it was my next door neighbor saying he had found a cat that was tossed off the roof and had landed on his fire escape. It was horrible and surreal all at once. My husband came home at the same time as the neighbor was bringing the cat into the apartment building and we were in a rush to get Wampi into our cat carrier (with him screaming and blood everywhere) and the baby packed up (she was screaming and crying from the intensity of it all)and we rushed to our nearest vet. We thought his spine was broken, we could tell his legs were badly broken, and I personally thought he had a concussion because of the blood coming out his mouth and nose.

I never wrote up all the details like I have just now ... maybe I should and post it as an update on my site. It is a painful, horrible memory but one I think people might want to read.

As for this being real or not, I can only assure you that it did happen. Wampi is real. I am real. The %$#*$*@# who did this to him are real too. I like the idea of stringing them up and hanging them from the same roof.

I've thought off and on about scanning the bills and/or itemizing them for all to see, but I wasn't sure if I should. I've had some people attack my website...malicious ad clickers resulting in me having to take down my google ads, email spam telling me I should have put Wampi down, and then of course some trolls saying nasty things in the comments section.

I think I will put up a section with the bills and just block out the personal information, but it will take a few days since I haven't slept at all and Wampi has a vet visit this morning. In the meantime, if anyone would like to know more, please feel free to email me at savewampi@gmail.com and visit my site at http://www.savewampi.blogspot.com.

Thanks for all your support and good wishes.

That is horrible. The thought of my baby -a ten year old orange tabby- enduring that kind of pain makes me physically ill. And I would be beyond homicidal if I thought the pain had been inflicted intentionally.

I'll be happy to link up the site info, although it will be later tonight before I post, and my readership is scant...due to my abhorrant blog neglect. ;)

Hey Cam, this is a big reason why I keep my Calico, Choe, in the house at night. We don't live in a six story apartment building in Seoul, but, there are plenty of unbalanced folks out there that I worry might do something to her. Choe gets upset, (she has that Bart Simpson groan down to a science) when I tell her "No more playing outside for the night". PLUS....If I don't watch her when she's on the roof-top patio we have, she likes to go roof-skipping. Yeah, she thinks she's Super Kitty. ;-)
