At the early stages of the pandemic, my little sister, at the young age of 9, carried home a box of kittens that were in danger of being carried away by the flood in our area. We couldn't find it in our hearts to abandon them somewhere.
We were gobsmacked as it was the first time we had cats, and enamoured as we were taken by the kittens' charms and pitiful state. Their mother--also a stray cat--later on found her kittens in our home. There were a total of 5 kittens, and unfortunately, one died days later.
We were a four-member household, with only our mother having a minimum wage job. We were so strict in our monthly purchases that we didn't have the extra money for pets. I joined an online part-time job while looking for a more stable position in a company, and my sister had to use her savings in order for us to keep the cats. Fortunately, the two orange tabbies were adopted.
Now, this is Big Sister Nana, the Youngest Kyu, and Mama Lily:
Now, we have 2 female kittens and 1 mother cat (who gave birth once again to another litter of kittens, and yes, we're also planning on getting them adopted), and we need help in funding to spay them as soon as possible.
The vet bills would include the spay operation which costs around Php 2,500 per cat, their vaccine shots, the supplies needed for their aftercare, their food, and proper sleeping rooms. We currently let them sleep and stay in one of our old "platera" cabinets-a little cramped, but well maintained and clean.
The kittens are now at the age when they are nearing their first heat, and with the amount of male cats here in our area, it is almost a sure thing that they'll get pregnant.
Please help these cute cats! ฅ'ω'ฅ
