This has been an incredibly difficult year for myself and my family, including the fuzzy ones. This past June my little brother passed away very unexpectedly at 21 leaving us all stunned and heartbroken. He left behind a beautifull momma cat and a litter of seven five day old kittens. I decided to foster them all untill they were old enough to leave momma cat, even though I already was the crazy cat lady with 5 of my own! :-) The mother cat got mastitis and with some very intensive round the clock care came out of it and was able to keep nursing her kittens. All seven of the little ones have made it to happy and healthy juveniles and have been adopted! However, their veterinary bills combined with my two older cats both getting very ill, one with what ended up being terminal cancer and one with an autoimmune issue that causes all kinds of strange and unpleasant symptoms for him; has depleted all my meager savings and run my care credit card out to the max. Normally I would be able to afford my responsibilities but this past 6 months has been a nightmare. , we lost both my brother and my father within six months of each other. My father passed away at the begining of November after being checked into the hospital with double pneumonia that turned septic. He was only 62 and I had hoped to have him for many years to come. He lived in Savvanah, Ga and I am in Chicago, getting to his bedside and staying after his passing to clear up his affairs means I have had to take a total of 6 weeks off of work since June. Today my oldest cat is having breathing problems and is going back to the doctor to try to get them under control, but I am fundless! Basically I am overwhelmed and in need of a hand. I work full time but at this rate it will take me two years to get everything back under control, and thats if all else in life goes perfectly. I am asking for help from anyone who is willing and able with the promise that I will always lend a hand to whomever needs it in the future, be they human or animal. I have been fostering animals my entire adult life and expect to continue untill I'm old enough to need care myself! Thank you to everyone who read this far and also to all those that may be able to lend me a hand to get over this hurdle.
