If anyone could spare any part of a BTC it would go along way towards my fundraising for a surgery for my cat.

Sure! Would 3000 work for you? https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=77535.msg886761#msg886761

It all starts with posting a cute pic of your cat, and tell a moving story if you want to get people's attention.

Second, you might aspire a desire to participate in the forum; one is to add your meaningful quantum of opinion to threads.
Along that line: You can start by changing your completely useless "3000" post in Bruno's thread to something more thoughtful (and maybe read the subject):
3000

All these things would be a nice start.

Furthermore, you might not have read enough yet here, but there's generally a no-begging motion here, so you will need to pitch your request differently.
A special free BTC thread is here, if you like to try your luck:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=22126.0

Generally, be a bit more verbose.

Good luck!

LOL!

Or, at the very least, troll us. Like wogaut kinda said, wine and dine us, then go for the reach around. Make up a story about your sick cat. Glean images off the internet via Gooogle. Sure, eventually you'll be caught, but at least you would have a couple/few bitcoins for your effort. Then you rinse and repeat. Already have another user name registered and currently in the process of wining and dining us, readied for the reach around. But this time, it's your dog. Children are always good to use as well. Whatever pet you choose, don't make the mistake of using a pet elephant, for it's already benn done, albeit the guy did raise just south of 1,000 BTC. Another guy raised about 300 BTC with his burnt home story before he was found out. But the best one was the monkey and gerbil ruse. That guy fetched...wait for it...14,622 BTC before he disappeared. This all said, do you care to try again, hellhoundpro?

So is this you admitting you don't actually have a sick cat?

And what was the monkey and gerbil ruse? I must have missed that.

Try searching this forum using monkey and gerbil as keywords.

What? That's your response? You are letting this go so easily?

Seriously, for a fund raiser to do surgery on my sick cat I would have a flier ready to go just as I mentioned above and would be ready to give anyone the full spiel.
So scammer or real, that would be a main requisite to get any sympathetic responses.
Have you ever done a fund raiser? This is not about begging and getting a quick buck without any work; fund raising is definitely hard work. And it takes a lot of preparation, getting a feel for your target audience, being persistent (in a good way), and staying on top of it.

With "nah, haha" you just lost me.

And then you post a pic off Google and piss us off (who would ever do that with a real sick cat?Huh?).
And the "cant wurk 2day" seems to be more a problem of the owner than the cat...

Time to get you a new user name and try again (but the next time taking all that advice into account and maybe study a few charity threads here).

And read the monkey and gerbil thread as well for further inspiration.

Not sure why I'm responding to this, since Bruno has pointed out the futility of my responses so effectively.

However, you seem to be lacking a basic understanding of human behavior:
We cannot be labeled heartless without having been given anything to be empathic about.
That one sentence in your OP isn't really evoke any sympathetic responses (neither did your earlier posts), and your response posts even less. Is that so hard to grasp? That's your way of fund raising? Really?

My best advice: Get a new user name and try it again, this time with a bit more tactfulness...
