Hello, my name is Susan,
I have been an animal lover for all my years. I especially have a strong bond with the felines. Over the years I have encountered and helped many of my furry companions. My first job was at an animal shelter. It was very sad, getting to know so many, and knowing most weren't going to find homes. I became an Animal Nurse when I finished High School, and left the shelter. That is how you aquire more companions, working for a Veterinarian. You end up taking the unwanted, or injured ones. I have tried to help other people with their animal needs. I helped an elderly couple find homes for 33 cats. I neutered all of them, and even took six into my home to help out. Another was a neighbor next to me,neuter 28 cats, plus animal care over the years they lived there. And many other individual situations. I find myself in a big predicament at this point in my life. It is a very humbling experience to ask for help from people I do not know. I have always tried to be strong, work hard, long days to pay my own way. I have lost my day job on August 8, 2014. I struggle every day on the computer, filling out apllications, temp agencies, and so on. It is so frustrating, and demeaning as to how impersonal job searching is these days. I am a single white female, age 51. This presets a concept in the eyes of many as me being less valuable a person to join a work team. I came from working three years on a production line. I do not mind hard work. I am praying for someone to give me a chance. I NEED HELP TO FEED MY COMPANIONS until I find a job. I have at present 26 feline companions who live with me, plus occasional floating strays. That is a lot of cat food a week! My financial picture is worsening quickly. The most horrible end result would be, having to give the up. With so many cats in the world, it is not easy to find homes, and the shelter is almost certain death. I can not bare the thought of that! These are my children, and I feel as though I am letting them down. I plead for anyone who can help me, please do so. I pledge any additional money collected will be donated to a local organization that helps people take care of injured strays, and has a neuter program. The kindness of animal lovers around the world is overwhelming! With each gift, I offer blessings for multiplied abundance to come back to all the wonderful human beings who are so willing to help out, of the kindness of their hearts. I don't have anything to offer back, except a humble thank you for your kindness and support. I can send pictures of individulas with their stories. Many have a story as to how they came to me.
A WARM AND SINCERE THANK YOU Susan
