Yesterday at around 8 pm I heard a cat meowing sound. We don't have any pets at our home so I went outside to see where what was going on.
Outside I saw a small kitten who looked a little malnourished. As as I went near the little girl it slowly came towards me and rubbed its body against my legs and meowed.
Our family has never had any pets as we couldn't afford to take care of them but I always had a deep love for animals. So as soon as I saw the little girl I fell in love.
Since I had never owned any pets my entire life I didn't know what cats eat and what they don't and for some reason, I didn't think about searching it on the internet.
I had seen some cats eat rice and rice is the most common food in my country so we already had rice cooked and ready.
So I gave her some rice mixed with dal and ghee this is what we usually eat but we don't eat ghee regularly since it's expensive. But she didn't eat it.
Then I gave her some biscuits but again she didn't eat them. I thought she was too young to be able to eat so I gave her some milk which she again didn't drink.
Since our whole family is vegetarian we don't have any meat and buying meat just for a cat is unrealistic for us.
She slept the night without eating anything. I was very worried about the little girl so I did what any modern-day kid would do ask Reddit.
The people in Reddit all told me to take the cat to a vet, feed her meat, feed her cat food or take her to shelter.
My parents are not too happy that I am keeping the little girl with me so them giving me money to take her to the vet is probably not possible and I can't blame them, we are a bit tight on money since my father just had surgery for appendix a month ago.
Also, vets are not too common in third-world countries.
As I already explained I can't give her meat I don't have money to do so.
But I could afford some cat food so I ordered some cat food which hasn't arrived yet.
But thankfully she ate some roti and ghee during but she still hasn't drank any water.
As for taking her to shelter it's also not possible since there is no animal shelter within a 100 km radius of my house.
And finally, one guy told me to set up a go fund me. I tried to do that but I didn't see any options Nepal and I started looking for it's alternative and that's how I am here.
So please help me take proper care of this cute little girl.
