Ariel Needs Your Help.

Hi,

.

Something a bit sad for you today.

.

In Brazil there is a beautiful lion, owned by Raquel Borges.

He is called Ariel and he is a massive 140 kg in weight.

He is also paralysed now and cannot use his legs at all.

.

Unfortunately he became ill last year, with a bad degenerative auto-immune condition, where his white blood cells are destroying his healthy cells.

This was thought to be caused by a virus.

.

He first began limping last year and underwent surgery for a herniated disc.

Afterwards his front legs were found to be paralysed.

.

He is now being looked after by his vet, Livia Teixeira, who has taken him into her home in order to give him the best care possible.

.

.

It is costing about £7,000 pcm for his care and treatment.

.

People all over the world are donating money to help, via his site and his facebook page.

Because of this various experts are testing him to try and find out exactly what can be done to bring about his recovery.

.

Now there is a lot of publicity about Ariel and his condition, he will hopefully recover because so many people really care about him.

.

Ariel’s Website…..for English speakers.

This is the link to the….facebook page…. where people who can read Spanish have been making donations to help with the treatment costs.

.

He looks lovely….he reminds me of the ‘most beautiful thing’ post….still one of my favourite things!

.

Fingers crossed for Ariel!

J,x.

Later News. 28th July.

Sadly Ariel died at the end of July despite everyone doing all that they could for him.
