Help Espresso

HI Everyone,

Espresso had a very hard start to his young life. He was hit by a car where he fled in shock to a second story baclony.
When I rescued him and brought to the vet, I only had three options

1) Make an appoitment with an orthepedic surgeon leg.
2)amputate his leg
3) euthanise him.

He's only nine month old, he's so sweet, cuddly and loveable, I decided to make an appoitment with the orthepedic surgeon. Espresso had surgery couple of days ago, the surgery cost over 2000$ (This price does NOT include, x-rays, fiv tests, pain medicine and boarding at the vet clinic)

I have created a website for Espresso, where you can get regular updates about our special guy! www.helpespresso.com
Please log on and take a look at the before and after pictures.

Here's a picture of Espresso before surgery, if you look at his front leg (the white one) you can tell it's big and swollen.

Espresso had his surgery 12 days ago, he's recovering nicely at his foster home, the total cost of the operation was 2050.00$ I will be updating Espresso's website tomorrow where you can see more pictures of him and updates about his operation.

In the meantime, here's a couple of pictures of Espresso
