I’ve messaged every rat blog I follow asking them to consider signal boosting my girl, Opal’s gofundme page, and have linked my journal about taking on commissions to fund her surgery to other blogs, but so far the only people to boost this info about all of this is my partner, a dear friend, and one other friend. While I’m deeply grateful for the help, I wish I could garner more for Opal…
I’m trying everything I can think of.. I work 40hrs a week, but that still isn’t enough..
I lost Freyja in March, I lost my dear friend, Andy, in April, and I lost Luna in May… My car was stolen, my mental health is starting to decline again, and now Opal has these tumors..
Someone please just help..
She’s in need of surgery, and needs help! Please signal boost this!
She’s a therapy animal and means everything to me.. Any help is greatly appreciated!
My little Opal..
She’s got a breast tumor and needs to go into surgery ASAP, and the cost will be around $200. I love this little girl so much. I raised her and her sister from just little bitty toddler aged ratties, and they’re also recognized as my therapy animals (as ESAs) by my psychiatrist (I’ve got Bipolar II Disorder and Dysthymia). I’m an illustrator, and I work mainly with traditional media, my focus being animals. I’ve opened up commissions to help pay for the surgery..
Details for those who’d rather keep reading and not open a new window:
Whether you boost this or not, hank you either way, because I even appreciate you reading this!

"Defendants took up arms and, in militaristic displays of force and weaponry, engaged U.S. Citizens as if they were war combatants," the suit claims.
WASHINGTON — A multi-million dollar lawsuit was filed in federal court in Missouri on Thursday, seeking compensation for “excessive force” by the police in Ferguson, Missouri, in the days after the shooting of Michael Brown.
According to the suit, the excessive force included false arrest, assault and battery; led to intentional infliction of emotional distress; was the result of negligent supervision and discipline; and resulted in a violation of the plaintiffs’ constitutional rights.
The lawsuit, filed by three out-of-state lawyers — including Malik Shabazz from Black Lawyers for Justice, who participated in the protests in Missouri — seeks multi-million dollar judgments against the City of Ferguson and St. Louis County, as well as one specific ands several unknown officers on behalf of Tracey White, Dewayne A. Matthews Jr., Kerry White, Damon Coleman, and Theophilus Green.
In addition to the city and county, the chief of both city and county police are named as defendants, as is Justin Cosma, a police officer with the Ferguson Police Department.
