Hello, please read whole message.
My name is Lidia Lipinska, I live with my fiancee and we have no other choice but to ask for help. We live in one of eastern European countries and life never was easy here but it got to the point now that we need all the help we can get. We had financial problems, despite being employed, for longer time now but 2020 hit us so hard we are not only having problems with paying bills (which will be higher now due to incoming winter - heating etc) but we also been undereating for quite some time now. That's not the worst thing though, we can be on mandatory diet and be constantly tired, both mentally and physically, but the biggest issue, that knocked us out few days ago, is the fact that our 14 yo female cat named Kota got sick, her health is worsening each day, we managed to borrow some money from our families (who are struggling with finances as well) to pay for 1 vet visit yesterday (21st of October), Kota had her blood tested and been treated with liquids, we also had to buy meds to help her with her increasing throwing out, she has no apetite, she is mostly returning water now.
Im writing this from work, my fiancee is at vet again with her, I spent 3/4 of the previous night keeping my hand on a trembling cat and trying to comfort my fiancee who almost had a mental breakdown because he was afraid she is going to die and feeling hopeless because we ran out of money and had nowhere to borrow from anymore. Im tired to the point where I dont even feel anything, I'm numb.
As I said, we can go hungry for some time but we have to take care of our animal children (Im 33yo and never had kids of my own due to fear that we might not be able to afford raising them and also due to the fact that I have a mental illness diagnosis, I dont want offspring because I dont want anyone to suffer mentally like I suffered), feed them and now pay for vet (we dont know how many visits and medication it will take for her to feel better). Im attaching first vet bill and todays picture of Kota at the clinic.
Its also not a question of swallowing my pride, I did that long ago. Its pure desperation at this point..
Any help will be greatly appreciated and I swear, as soon as we will stand back on our feet financially and be able to afford more than essentials I want to share any money we will be able to give away to animal shelters and/or charities. I just want my loved ones to be healthy and happy, not to suffer so much. Thank you for reading this, if you cannot help us with money then please share. Update today, 22 October - Im attaching 2 vet bills, there will be more in incoming weeks and most probably months, I got information that Kota has kidney and tooth issues and we will have to buy from now on special food and pay for daily visits (she will be having liquids and medication injected) If anyone would like further infomation, pictures etc regarding her health and situation in general, also any kind of proofs that our situation and everything I wrote about here is real you can contact me via discord, my tag: fridge#6731
Thanks once again for any type of support
