I’ve been caring for a group of outdoor cats for a long while. We have a mixture of friendly, semi friendly, skittish and unapproachable cats. There’s a bunch of different personalities to juggle.
I’m providing for 18-20 + cats & as the summer months progress onward the volume only has the potential to increase.
We started out with 3 cats one hot summer day and with time it has since grown. I’ve been searching for help for what seems like F O R E V E R. Desperately trying to get them, at the very least, fixed but have not found any assistance.
A couple of days ago I got in contact with a lady named Lisa. She told me that she will help fix the cats at no cost. She is part of a program who helps people with cats in my situation. I explained to her that these are NOT my cats and that all I am trying to do is help and care for them because I don’t have it in me to just look them over and keep on walking by as they continue on suffering. Especially when they are wailing and repeatedly crying out for food ,water +etc.
I can’t afford to fix them out of pocket. Not on top of the amounts and cost for their cat food and supplies. It’s only myself and elderly father who help the cats, when he is able to.
It is extremely difficult to keep up with the need and demand. I do my all out best but with the volume of kitties I’m caring for each day, it’s next to near impossible to maintain their wet/dry food& supplies, to have readily available for them.
Assisting, helping, feeding, and saving animals in crisis is a literal thankless labor of love and there aren’t enough of us. It goes beyond time consuming.
At the end of each day those little furry faces always push and drive me to do better than I did the day before.
Little by little, I have been placing them in shelters/homes.
Still the cats have to eat in the process of getting there.
I’ve found that trying to maintain a positive attitude along the way IS a GREAT help.
Someone said to me how about making an Amazon wish list to better help and serve the cats?
Now I’ll be the first to say that I’m far from tech savvy but if in doing so it will alleviate me and aid us in keeping a flow of cats food and supplies for them, then you betcha, I’m on board!
I looked into it and with some help from the amazon employee our kitty wishlist was born, Yayy!!
I’m hoping some kind folks can assist and support the cats and I in making a heartfelt contribution from our amazon wishlist. The cats and I would be oh SO very grateful for your compassion and loving support☆
If we all pull and work together we can manage to keep these fur babies full each day♡
Your helping hands & kind hearts matter!! They make a difference in the lives of the cats, seeing to it that they’re able to survive☆
Our Amazon wishlist link is as follows:
Thank you so much for your time and help!
P.S. I’ve included just a couple of quick still photographs of some of the furs that I help and tend to each day. I have a bunch more photos of the cats too, some photos it would not let me upload claiming that they were “too large” to post. =)
