About the Campaign

Broken leg? Not sure,

Jakey needs multiple x-rays.

A few days ago, Sherry noticed that Jakey was limping on his back left leg. The limp was so noticeable that she became very concerned. She assumed that he had rolled his ankle or maybe even fractured something. However, Sherry and her family have been going through some tough times financially. Sherry’s husband lost his job earlier this year due to a knee injury from his physical job, and their rent increased over Covid. They have four children under the age of 12 and almost became homeless in October.

Despite her worries for Jakey, Sherry simply doesn’t have the funds to pay for an examination and treatment for her furry companion. To make matters worse, Jakey threw up that same night, making her even more worried about his well-being.

Jakey is an indoor cat and has a little cat brother. Sherry adopted him six years ago and has been a loving and devoted pet owner ever since. She hasn’t taken him to the vet yet, but now she knows she has to do something to help him.

This is where we can all come together to help Sherry and Jakey. Let’s show our support for Sherry and Jakey during these difficult times. They need our help, and together, we can make a positive impact on their lives. All donations are only paid to the vet. Thank you!! 🙂

      Rebekah, thank you so much for your care and concern to support Jakey getting help. He is a nanny-cat for my kids and a therapy-cat for me. It is so hard to see a robust and closely-involved family cat member suddenly go from jumping up on their beds to sleep and watch over them at night, to not be able to. Jakey is still very friendly and puts on a lot of love to people visiting even though he now spends most of his time not moving much; this is absolutely heart-breaking to see and feel helpless. Again, thank you so much for your support and care for Jakey to get better💛

      Jeannie, thank you so much for your prayers and support for Jakey and my family. Jakey loves me so much, but I also know his best care concern is always with my 4 young children. I can imagine how hard it is on him to no longer suddenly be able to keep jump on their beds where he usually shares his lick kisses with each of them good night, and stays sleeping in their room to watch over them while they sleep. Some might say a cat loves a bed, but Jakey truly stays by their side all day, every day..until this medical mystery.

    I’m unemployed so I can’t offer much, but I’ve met Jakey and he is super sweet. His family loves him very much. Thanks to Adelaide (not related) and everyone else for their generosity! I hope Jakey will get all the care he needs very soon.

      Hi, Duncan! I have only just seen I can see who has donated support for Jakey, and the great bonus that I can reply😊

      I had never met you before, Duncan. I only knew of your longtime and passionate engagement on matters that have meaning to you in Nextdoor, and also felt keen to admire your writing style.

      I accepted your help to assist me, a stranger and quite a texter relaying every possible update and concern about Jakey.

      I feel so amazed and supported by every single effort from those caring to help Jakey and relieve my family from worrying about delay getting Jakey timely help in this crisis💛💙💚

      Thank you for sharing your support for Jakey and my family. He truly is so vested in our family, especially the children.

      It is very hard to see Jakey limp around, and softly slam his bottom down on the floor after walking across a room only a few feet. We are so thankful for your support for Jakey💚💛🧡🧡🧡

      Hi, Kelly! Thank you for your caring to support Jakey getting the help he needs.
      Jakey is so warm and lovingly to visitors. I know it takes a lot out of him to display affection now. He stopped jumping up on beds and sofas for the most part. Something very unlike him to do, ever.
      I am frantic to get Jakey the diagnosis and care he needs. Sincerely, thank you💛💛🧡

        My other cat, April, really jostled my texting arm during my last response. Fur nudges are the best ☺
