this is uncomfortable for me to ask.
my cat is very ill, and i cannot afford to take him to the vets. I love him so much and i feel so guilty that i cant do anything about it. i dont have the funds to take him to the vet to get him treated. he has respiratory problems, and there is something wrong with him using his body functions. i cant bare it and this is the only thing i can think of to do :(.
Here's his story.
about 4 years ago after I moved through to where I live. He was on the street. He is a long haired cat, and it was clear nobody was looking after him. His fur was just one big matt. He obviously had an owner at one point in his life as he had a collar on, which his skin had grown around. Anytime I went to fuss him, he flinched away, obviously been abused, poor thing wanted attention but just didn't trust me. I gave him food every day and it was obvious he wasn't getting any, you could see how skinny he was even through the matted fur. I spent months getting him to trust me enough to finally follow me up into my flat. Once he was inside, he was very nervous, mainly just stayed on the bed I had got for him, after about a week he quickly realised that nobody was going to hurt him now, and that he was getting food on a regular basis. He started to venture through to the living room where I was. He started getting curious. I left him to explore. After he had settled in, I had to upset him by shaving all his matted fur off. He obviously was not happy about this, meowed like crazy, but not once did he try and bite me. Didn't even try and run off, just stood there. Then I gave him a wash, his skin was sso red raw where the fur had been pulling. He obviously was not impressed by this, after all I had just soaked him, but still never tried to bite me, such a good natured cat after everything he had been through. Although he didn't speak to me for about an hour. But he had a bounce in his step now. He could actually move freely, I had to treat his neck as I had to cut the collar off him, that must have been so painful for him.
But now he is a happy and healthy boy. Full of confidence. Nothing like the shivering wreck I rescued. It didn't cost much. Just alot of time, which I was happy to give him. I have two cats and would do anything for them. They eat before I do. I'm only 22 but I give them everything they need. I have always loved animals and i will never see them suffer. Not if I can help.
But my boy needs help. And I really hope people can help. It's killing me knowing I can't do anything just now. Please, please help me help him. I understand there many good causes that need help, I'm just hoping this is one of them.
Thanks for listening.
please i really need you're help,
Give my boy a second chance like i did.
