This is the same lady who has posted repeatedly to see if new guardians could accept one, two or three of her cats (click for blog post).  There has been no response to those appeals.
Meanwhile there is good news re Rylan's leg. Thanks to all who are helping Elsa. Her update of 9/11 is here, with two photos.

I am sending three pictures of Rylan's leg. I hope you will receive them and if not let me know and I will re-send them
Rylan is home and in very good spirits. Doctor Mecheal have me a HUGE discount on the bill. He showed me the X-Rays of the leg and explained that the femur was shattered and he reconstructed it with 12 screws. Rylan has 18 stitches. He was given pain meds and antibiotics to have at home
I want to thank each and every one of the wonderful people who made this miracle possible and please make sure you forward this mail so everyone can see how humbly grateful I am. This has actually been theraphy for my chronic depression. What a wonderful world we live in, while we have all those invisible siblings caring for is out there!

for those who are reciving this mail for the first time, my cat Rylan broke his femur an was taken to Well Pet Animal Hospital. Dr Wellington there said he does not perform surgery to repair the broken bone but recommended a clinic that would charge $4,000 to $5,000 to do it.  Amputation cost, done by him, was $1,500.  SO I took Rylan to Lyndhurst Animal Hospital where Dr. Mechale charged $500 with the promise to save his leg.  He WILL NOT AMPUTATE, HE WILL TRY TO SAVE RYLAN'S LEG
The hospital's number is
Rylan is there now awaiting surgery tomorrow morning
A friend lent the money for the surgery that I musts repay promptly. Oterhwise Rylan will not get vet services

Subject: I desperately need your help

My cat broke his leg and took him to Well Pet Animal Hospital. The surgery will be about $3,000 to $4,000 that I cannot afford. The removal of his leg will cost about $1,500. I don't have money and my only option is to have him euthanized if I don't get some money to pay for the vet services
Please help me with that poor cat. His name is Rylan.
Please forward this mail and post it in FB.
Well Pet will not take donations but calls can be made to make sure cat is there. Phone number is
