Babbo’s Books Raising Money to Save Bookstore Cat

Babbo’s Books has launched an emergency campaign to raise funds for an expensive medical procedure that could save the life of the Brooklyn bookstore’s mascot.

Follow this link if you want to donate to the campaign for Holly. The campaign has a $1,000 funding goal, and Leonora at the bookstore explained where the funds will go:

Holly has had kidney disease for over two years. During that time, we’ve been able to manage it with a daily regimen of subcutaneous fluids. Now, Holly has stopped eating and needs emergency treatment. She needs to go to the hospital for 2 – 7 days and be put on an IV. It’s called Diuresis treatment and it’s basically kitty dialysis. The only other option is euthanasia. The treatment may not work, but she is young and the vet thinks she has a pretty good chance. Afterwards, we would go back to giving her fluids every day.  We can’t afford to do this so we are asking for your help. Please donate whatever you can, $5, $10, $25. Even $1 helps. If just 100 people give $10 each, we can pay for the treatment.
