So, lemme break this down first.
I am someone who suffers from disabilities.
The two most predominant that run my life are Clinical Depression and a specific phobia called Anthropophobia. The Fear Of People. This fear is something that developed in a way that even people with PTSD keep saying reminds THEM of a manner of PTSD. I won't get into this big long speech on my past but basically I suffered a great deal of pieral abuse and even not endure constant betrayal, abandonment, ect. Because of this people terrify me. The idea that they'll betray, abandon or outright hurt me freaks me out so I wind up having a very hard time dealing with others in ways normal, everyday people can and do.
My two cats, Saru and Atsuko have been a big support system for me and without them I don't know what I'd do. Effectively, you could say they are basically unregistered ESA animals or... Emotional Support Animals.
I do struggle handling certain things that I need for them tho. I make sure they get food and litter, don't worry. I make sure of it even if I have to use a cut of the money I need for food to make sure they'll be okay. That said... things that others may or may not see as important but that for me is, would be a thermal cat bed or blankets for them. This is because my AC is kept down ridiculously low to cut energy bill costs. Not to mention since Saru normally goes with me everywhere, I want him to stay warm whether hes walking around on his leash or is in his backpack.
I currently only have one blanket for him, which both the two cats tend to share from time to time. But theres also only one cat bed I have too, which only one cat at a time tends to sleep in.
I want to get them a bed that will work to help keep them warm but want to get two so they aren't trying to compete over the bed and one ends up not getting to lay in it... I also wanna have a blanket I can keep just inside the pet backpack for Saru so I don't have to keep stealing the blanket from Atsuko.
This isn't the only things I wanna do for them... I wanna get Saru some winter booties to wear for when hes walking around with me and a winter coat for the same reason so he'll be warm. The booties also help to keep the chances of him getting sick down by getting any parasites in through his feet. I wanted to get him some for summer too but... one step at a time.
Anyway... for Atsuko, she has breathing issues so I wanted to get a humidifier for her so she can breathe a bit easier as well...
So what I'm going to do, is I'll post up a list of things I wanna get for them and for each one I'm able to actually obtain with everyones help, I'll post a picture in as proof that thats where the money went of them using/wearing it or it set up. I just want my cats to be happy and healthy too. Some funds may also go to vet bills if theres enough and its an emergency, but I'll post up a show of the receipt as proof of that too.
Thank you all who wish to help and donate as well as those who merely share the link with others to help spread it around. My two kitties are my heart and right now... my life support system.
