Okay so I really don’t know how to do this and I don’t really want to either but I really need to get help..
This is my precious cat Max. I found him a little over a year ago, or really he found me. He started wandering in to my mom’s garden in our backyard and I just fell in love with him.
When I found him he was very very sick. He had an upper respiratory infection and tapeworms and was just all around in ill health, however I’ve never met a sweeter, more loyal cat. He likes to sleep on tissue paper and under the covers with me, and he likes to wait for the school bus with me in the mornings. From what I hear he has anxiety attacks when I’m not home, and honestly I get so nervous when I’m away from him too.
I may be a little too attached to him, but that’s okay because he is basically my companion animal. I’ve had SUCH dramatic improvement in my school, anxiety, and really most aspects of my life in the time I’ve had him. However, recently we’ve been noticing that he won’t eat, and the past couple of weeks it’s gotten really bad. When we took him to the vet they said he needed some serious dental work, which will cost us anywhere between $200 and $800 to give him. I don’t know how many of you have that much money to spare but I know my family sure doesn’t.
I live in a single parent family with an autistic younger brother and a mother with sever fibromyalgia. We literally get by on food stamps and disability checks and child support, but honestly we barely make it some months. I know people say you shouldn’t get a pet if you can’t afford it but… he’s my baby, he found me, and I usually can afford him, but we just don’t have $200+ laying around.
So what I’m asking for is a little bit of help. If every one of my followers donated a dollar I’d have enough to get his teeth cleaned and blood work done on him (Which adds up to about a $200 minimum) which is the first step to finding out exactly what’s wrong. The longer I wait to get this done the higher the chance that they’ll have to pull out his teeth is… which would be expensive and miserable for everyone involved.
Please, if you have even just a few cents to spare I’d appreciate it more than you can imagine, even if all you can do is reblog this I’d be so grateful. It breaks my heart to watch him struggle to eat, even when he’s just laying down sometimes he’ll yawn and suddenly jump up and yowl in pain. Something is really wrong with my kitty and I just can’t help him by myself…
This is the paypal donation link. I’ll be putting a button up on my page as well. I know tumblr has worked some miracles and I hope, so much, that maybe it’ll do it for me too. Please signal boost this if you can’t donate, and please think happy thoughts for my kitty. I appreciate any help I can get with this so much.
Feel free to contact me with any questions/concerns!
i’m gonna go donate some money right now
