Help bring Oli Home

Personal message

My name is Cathrine Hopkins. I am 35 years old and serve on the board of our local community as secretary and events organiser. I live in Fourways, Johannesburg.

I am raising funds for a family in our community - Lisa Bowles.  Lisa's cat Oli was run over by a car and she is in desperate needs of financial assistance in covering the surgeries that Oli requires.

Darling Oliver was unfortunately run over (the driver did a hit and run) on Wednesday evening in our suburb, Little Fourways Village. He has sustained serious injuries that require several operations. Oli was rushed to Fourways Vet, where they were able to stabilise him, but the one night has cost over R7000.

He has been transferred to Blue Bush Vet today (Thursday the 1st of August) where the surgeries will hopefully be more affordable.

The car, unfortunately, hit Oli on the head. His eye and jaw are severely damaged. Fortunately, he has no other internal injuries - but his jaw will need serious reconstruction surgery. Oli is a fighter and is responding, so we are hopeful that he will get through this.

Oli is the most loving and integral member of our family and we are devastated by this. It is out of our absolute love for him that we are asking friends and neighbours to please donate to our fund that will help cover the extremely high medical costs that are ahead.

We are going to do everything in our power to bring our beloved Oli home - and we ask please, for any donation that you can give, in order for us to be able to do this.

Oli was transferred to Blue Bush vet today - Thursday the 1st of August. His first surgery is scheduled for tomorrow on the 2nd of August. We would like to raise the funds in as short a time frame as possible.

All funding will go to the Blue Bush Animal hospital. All receipts from the hospital will be available for any persons donating.

We will be helping save the life of a very beloved family member and as a community, we are helping out our neighbour in her time of need.

*Funds raised will be transferred directly to the Vet.*
