Sam had his surgery!

Mon Jan 22, 2018, 9:19 AM
I'm opening commissions to donate to this rescue center and help save this cat. He needs surgery and jaw reconstruction. I would also love to be able to adopt him.
The money will be donated to save this specific cat.
Here is his donation page with his story:
letsadoptinternational.com/201…

Untitled-1 by AltairSky

as you can notice, he looks exactly like my cat Minchio, who died 6 years ago from a mouth infection that my vets couldn't (or didn't want) to cure:

I still feel so guilty, all I had to do was to change vet and he might be still alive today... But I trusted the vets and he ended up dying from this infection. So now I want to help this cat and see if I manage to redeem myself and feel a little better (I doubt it though, unless I also manage to adopt him)


Here is the video with the link to the donation page if you feel like making a donation directly to them without me drawing something:

I will draw your pet in this cute style for 10$, just send me a full body picture of your pet and I'll draw him/her. I can draw reptiles, rodents and fishes too.

I can also draw fantasy creatures and fursonas.

I can make you a reference sheet of your animal character like these for 30-40$, depending on the complexity of the character.

If you want to donate by yourself, you can do so by following the donation link in the aforementioned video description, however if you do so, I won't draw you anything. But if you feel in your heart that you want to help him and have nothing in return, then it's even better because paypal won't keep double fees for itself.

Thanks for your help! If you can't donate, please help me spread the world and share this journal! Sharing helps a lot!


UPDATE: I just wanted to let you know that Sam had his surgery a few days ago and he's doing relatively well. Here is the video of the surgery (WARNING GRAPHIC FOOTAGE)
UPDATE 2: I contacted the animal rescue center asking if I could adopt Sam but I never got an answer so I guess I'm not good enough to adopt him :((((((((((((((
Thank you to everyone who helped!

I had made a mistake about my paycheck, I don't get paid until this coming Wednesday; BUT I should still have enough to donate 30 comfortably! Just let me know how to give it to you ^^ And I just read over this journal in greater detail. You have my deepest sympathies for your cat. I know that it's never easy to lose an animal, but you mustn't blame yourself for his passing. You did what you thought was right at the time, and it's easy to judge yourself with hindsight. If those vets didn't perform, then that's on them. You did what you you could and I'm positive with how nice you've been to me, that you gave your cat a fantastic life! It took me a long time to learn to stop blaming myself when my Shih tzu Abby passed away, but once you do, it makes it easier to remember the good times and remember them in your heart fondly without clouds of doubt distracting you.

Aww thank you so much for the nice words! 
I'm already kind of full with commissions at the moment so don't worry, it's ok if you wait a little bit.
If you just want to donate to Sam without me drawing a commission, you can donate directly to the clinic's page here: 
letsadoptinternational.com/201…

They also have other animals, this for example is Elektra and she's having surgery right now:

So even if Sam is already okay, the donations will certainly go to help other animals.

Ah okay! Sorry for the delay! I cannot wait to see your finished works! I'll try to save up some money for commissions and get you when you're not busy! Thank you so much for the other links! I'll be sure to do my part, and I'm so sorry that it took me so long to reply to this! Good luck with those commissions, and don't push yourself too hard!

Instead of the animals of this btw, is it okay if I ask for Medabot drawings, or is this strictly for animal commissions?

Do you also draw horses? And is it a problem if it's a character instead of a pet?

Because I'd like to get some art of him with the 10$ option. :3 I can pay with Paypal.

I can definitely spare $10 for this, but I don't have a credit card so I'm not sure how to send it your way. Here's my fluffball, but you don't need to draw her:  20171220 143604 by TheWarOfTheRing

I'll be sure to share your journal while I'm figuring that out!

aww thank you so much! She's so cute! Sadly to make a donation you need paypal. If you're not interested in a commission, you can donate directly to Sam from this page: www.paypal.com/donate/?token=X…

Here:  Injured cat in need of helpAltairSky urgently needs money to help pay for medical bills for a badly injured cat. She's offering $10 commissions. I, unfortunately, can't pay directly since I don't have a credit card, so I'm spreading the word instead. Please help her, it's for a good cause.
Details here: 
(also she's a really good artist too so check out her gallery if you get the chance)


And if Paypal takes debit, I'll make sure to donate ASAP. If not, I'm really sorry that this is all I can do.

It's not that I'm not interested in a commission, it's just I figure getting the money your way is more important and I don't want to take up your time on something that frivolous.

Yes it's still on! Send me a note with the character you'd like me to draw (if you don't need any commission from me then feel free to donate directly to the clinic by following the link I posted in the journal).
Thank you so much but please keep the money for yourself if you need to save for something more important!
