My name is Archel Escaro (AC), cat dad of 4 and a struggling masters student here in the Philippines. I make ends meet by being a tutor a few months ago and it pays well... until the COVID-19 attacked. Schools here in the Philippines, Metro Manila in particular, are now cancelled. Online classes included. While the tutorial center I work in initially planned to transition to online tutorials, we don't have students to teach since there's no school. Since the tutorial center is small too, they really couldn't pay me if we don't have students too.
That being said, I come to ask for your help to keep my cat family healthy and safe.
Their names are Hadi and Perse. My friend rescued them as week-old kittens in our university and I decided to keep them with my friend's help. They are now around 8-9 weeks old and are really my bundle of energy in the house.
This gorgeous piece of art is named... well, Art. He's aloof and will judge you from afar...unless you got some grub.
Lastly, he's Apol. The eldest of my sons. He's playful and cuddly and really curious about everything.
All of them got their names from Greek Mythology! Apol and Art came from the twin gods, Apollo and Artemis. While the void cats' name, Hadi and Perse, came from my favorite underworld couple, Hades and Persephone.
Lately, I noticed that Apol is particularly less energetic and sulks in a corner. Either due to the new kittens or a sickness, I still haven't confirmed yet... because finances. Art started to become territorial too, but specifically to Apol. It might be due to them being not castrated yet but then again... financial restrictions. All these issues came up in a time when (1) I haven't got my foothold since starting a job, (2) in a freaking PANDEMIC, (3) with limited resources.

Update 1: Apol goes to vetUpdate posted by Archel Escaro at 05:12 am
Fortunately, there's no wound in Apol's eye so the doctor gave us some eye drop medicine and we'll keep observing Apol until he gets better. Let's keep praying for his condition!!! OR for the professional fee and the eye drop medication
