DOGGO NAMED LINDA
In the neighborhood where I am right now lives an outdoor stray dog named Linda. I am very fond of her and she is a very good doggo!
Linda keeps the street safe for the residents and barks at the strangers, we can even hear her barking at night. She also often follows residents around for a neighborhood walk and she often enjoys the walks as seen in this video:
My heart melts for her when she does that with me. Of course, I give her treats for being a good doggo. She likes milk, chicken meat and salami. She also chases after the male cats in heat who bother the female strays in our neighborhood as well and breaks up any cat fight in our neighborhood. One time I saw her body-slam two male cats who were furiously making a loud fuss, she's really a good doggo. She gets along well with the other female cat and kitten strays around too.
ELLIE & RUSSELL
Among the female cat strays I am giving food and water to are two sibling kittens, Ellie and Russell, named after the characters in the Pixar film, Up.
They are approximately 4-5months old and they just mysteriously came here a few months ago. I've been feeding them some milk, cat food & leftovers. Ellie is a sweetheart and she doesn't use her claws when she taps me. Russell is the more adventurous type and all play but with claws though (eep!). I am planning to have them spayed & neutered after a month.

I will leave Izmir, Turkey by end of November. I would like to provide them a more stable dog & cat house when it gets freezing and rain-proof. Sad to say, I only have a part-time online that does not pay much. I normally spend 6$ a week on buying Linda & the kittens & the other strays food & milk. I will be leaving by end of November and I am worried for Linda and the kittens. Which is why I set up this page.
I've searched online on possible cat & dog houses and here's my estimate cost breakdown.
I will spend the funds raised by:
- Outdoor Cat House (for multiple cat strays, max 4-6 cats) $100
- Outdoor Dog House for Linda $90
- Vet Spay Services $40
- Food & Milk for the winter (3 months) $60
I would really appreciate any help the kind souls out there in the world can provide. It might be a small cause but it would mean the world to me to know that Linda, Ellie & Russell will be in good condition for the winter. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this!!
