Nobody at the clinic had ever heard of this happening before. Mr Sutton was staggered by this young woman's generosity. He described the whole process of mentally adjusting the saying goodbye to his cat as drowning and then suddenly the water recedes on hearing that Miss McCully had decided to fund the operation.
This is a comment by a co-worker:
First of all, I just want to say that I work with Nadine and she is one of the most caring people I've ever met. We all fell in love with Leo and his owners, and were so happy that Nadine was not only willing, but (barely) able to provide them with a much needed miracle.It is an awful lot of money to give to a cat charity when you don't have an awful lot of money yourself. In fact, it reminds me of the generosity of Marc, a regular contributor to the main website, PoC, who on one occasion gave $1000 to help a cat caretaker he had never met and never seen. It was an Internet donation given blind and given on trust which had a total wow factor about it.
Sometimes money isn't that important. Its importance diminishes under certain circumstances. Most people spend all their lives saving money and making sure that they have enough. Then when you get older and you don't care about anything much anymore, money no longer has the same value. But for this young lady her money had a real value and she must have been protecting it, saving it for something important perhaps but she gave it all away to save the life of a cat who belong to another person.
