Hello, tumblr. I’ve not been very active here lately. I thought I might ask for some help. See, I’ve rescued these kittens from the streets of Brooklyn. They were starting to look sickly with their mom cat, which is why I took them in. They were hissing and feral, in the past 8 days I’ve tamed them into adoring purring machines, hoping to adopt them out once they were well. The thing is, they still aren’t well. They seemed to improve for the first few days, but they remain rather sickly, and growing more and more listless.
I need to take them to a vet. I’d thought to bring them to a shelter where they could be treated and then adopted out, but there are waiting lists at all the no-kill shelters. Even the very cheapest vet costs $25 for each kitten, just for walking in the door. That’s $100, not counting whatever treatment they might need. I’ve already blown through a ridiculous amount of money feeding these kittens high-end canned kitten food, because they have diarrhea and I fear they are growing dehydrated. I suspect it’s just worms, but they are so floppy and sickly looking that I daren’t assume that’s the case, nor administer a deworming product that WILL give them more diarrhea, which could harm them.
I am on Social Security Disability, and after rent I only have $400 to last me the month. But the idea of these kittens dying just because I’m too poor to take care of them is killing me!
Oh, the crying. Lots of crying.
So…. here I am, asking the internet if you’d like to help sponsor the health of some kittens. If you’d like to donate, I would be forever in your debt.
So would kittens Mot, Gul DuCat (not pictured), Little Petal, and Lady Lobo.
