My name is Corina and in July last year me and my mom emmigrated from Romania to Canada. When we left we couldn't take my cat, Thomas, with us because we couldn't afford the extra expenses for his ticket and medical bills.
Thomas is a rescue cat, found by my mom when he was only few months old. At first she wanted to give him to my grandmother but when i saw him i instantly fell in love with him and didn't allow her to give him away. He grew up to be one of the most loving cats i have ever seen. He was very loyal to me and would follow me anywhere i would go and became an important part of my life. When the time came and we received the Canadian Visa i knew i couldn't bring him with me so i left him in the care of a family friend. Being used with having him around me all the times i developed sleeping problems immediatly after i got used with the new time zone. Everyone who would hear about this would say that it's only because my body is adapting to the new environment, well almost a year passed and i still have sleep problems. If at the beginning everyone told me that i'll get him back one day, with time they started to tell me i should get another cat, but that's impossible i can't just forget Thomas like that. I miss him every day more and more and i always think about him, he's a part of the family. My only hope of getting him back was my dad, when i left he told me he would save money and send Thomas after me and my mom settle. It didn't happen, last time i talked with him about this he said he would NEVER give money for "a cat" and would rather spend that money doing something with me but not for me apparently.
It is hard to ask for charity and i thought about this for a long time but it is my last resort; despite my mom working two jobs they are minimum and we can't save up money to pay for the plane ticket and medical bills.
Thank you in advance for helping me.
