TANG IS SICK!!!
I teach high school students with mental/physical disabilities in the second largest public school district in America. In spite of what one would think is a pretty good job, I have not had a raise in TEN years! On top of that, I have been forced to take unpaid furlough days, and am only guaranteed a job for 9 1/2 months of every year. Sometimes I get an extra 4 weeks during summer, but the jobs are limited, so I often do not get one, as happened this summer. Due to an agreement between my union and the EDD, I am not eligible to get Unemployment benefits for the months when I am unemployed! I have tried to find a temp job, but have had no luck, so far. Added to that, due to Sequestration, my rent went up nearly $300 in less than one year! And living in Los Angeles is very costly. Now my BIGGEST concern, and why I am here...
My 9 year old cat, Tang, who I rescued from the county shelter when he was 5 years old, has suddenly become very sick! He can barely walk, so must sit after a few steps. He has become incontinent of urine, and occasionally feces, has a cough, is losing weight, and must lie down to eat, drink, and sometimes to urinate. I have been unable to take him to the vet because the costs are around $2000 for treatment of kidney and hip disease. I tried to get credit for Tang's treatment, but I recently filed for bankruptcy, due to my dire financial situation, so I am not eligible. I am trying to sell my car to raise funds, but Tang is getting worse before that has happened. I have never tried fund-raising, but was given this suggestion by the awesome rescue organization, Best Friends Animal Society, which gave me the link to this site! I don't want Tang to suffer any longer! My last resort, if this doesn't work, is to take him back to the county shelter, and hope he gets help, instead of euthanization...
