This is a benefit album for my cat, Puma, who came home beat up, with a broken hip bone four days ago from the release of this album. I am particularly attached to rescuing this cat, because last year he almost died from a bladder obstruction, and it was a miracle that he survived that first crisis, and I don’t want to give up on him now. While I have had to make hard decisions to let my cats go before, I think it was the right decision to save him, he is only 2 1/2 years old and has gone through a lot.
But this is hitting my pocketbook very hard, to the tune of about $3300 at this point. While I put this on the credit card and got him the surgery, it is going to be very hard to pay for this, with all the other regular financial problems a person has factored in.
So as an artist, I came up with the idea of doing a benefit album for my cat. I feel like I’ve contributed to the art community for years, and never asked for much in return, always trying to give 100 times what I receive. Most of my own albums are available for free, for example. But now I just feel like it is right to ask the universe for help. So I quickly put together a collection of unreleased songs, available for a $3 donation. This also includes an exclusive “Thank You” video I made of footage of Puma, and a bunch of pics of the cute kitty, that I don’t have up anywhere else.
So rest assured that Puma will be taken care of, but it would sure help out if you helped me pay for his second miraculous recovery!
While I am humble and not expecting to come anywhere near making the $3300 back in donations, if the unexpected happens, and I make more than that amount, I plan on donating the difference to my local Humane Society. I would be happy to share the details of all of this with everybody, and have pictures of my bills and his x-rays and bone matter available, since I believe it’s reasonable for people to want to know this is truly for a good cause. I consider myself a guardian angel for this cat, and any help I could have keeping this cat healthy would be appreciated!
