CATICORN, Y U SO MAJESTIC
WELCOME TO CAT BURGER HOME OF THE CAT BURGER
I hate begging, but I don’t have much choice here. We have a younger stray cat, we call him Rusty, that has hung out around our house for the last two and half years. He’s very sweet, loves to be pet, and happily comes sauntering inside when given a chance. He is also the last of our strays. Our landlord hates stray cats, and traps and kills them. In addition, our maintenance man has repeatedly found rat poison, antifreeze, and lately, chunks of hot dogs with screws and nails in them. We live in a rather cat-hating area, and the shelter refuses to take cats. They’re dog-only now. This past year, we’ve buried all the strays that hung around, except for Rusty. He’s the last one.
I’ve contacted multiple rescues, but they’re full. The one I did manage to get him into, he apparently panicked shortly after I left and had an ‘episode’, as the lady called it. He’s back, but we’re wanting to bring him inside where he’ll be safe. This is where we have problems. I work a minimum wage job, and while I can afford to take care of our 8 cats, the cost of getting Rusty sorted out and brought inside is more than I can afford right now. I’ve called around, and this is the best pricing in town:
- Office visit: $36.30
- FIV and FeLV test: $42.70
- Neuter and monitoring: $86.20
- Vaccinations: $52.50
- Worming: $22.14
- Pain meds and antibiotic: $12.50
- Topical parasitic: $25
- Total cost: $277.34
Just shy of $300. I can save and scrimp and short myself even more than I have, but I’m not going to be able to get that together for a bit. That’s my entire paycheck.
I would offer trade in favors, but I can only write. I do offer that. I will repay everyone that donates, I promise. I’m asking for $300, just to cover any unexpected surprises that may crop up. Any bit that you can spare is a help, and signal boosting is greatly appreciated. We have an email set up through PayPal, it’s HelpRusty@gmail.com . Will you please help save Rusty?
We (me?) at Cats Everywhere believe strongly in helping strays and feral cats, and so I’m reblogging to help spread awareness for this nice person trying to save Rusty, a stray living in a neighborhood that’s not very cat-friendly.
This person’s landlord is actively trying to murder Rusty, so if you can donate to this PayPal you’d not only help save his life but also piss off a cat-hating lunatic. It’s a win-win. Thanks for reading and please keep spreading the word!
Sad cats need love too. Probably more love, honestly.
WTF IS THIS I HATE YOU MOM
Before there was ‘Her’, Spike Jonze directed this Bjork video. Ten years later, and it’s still amazing.
Dude, if I had a tail, I’d probably freak myself out with it all the time too.
I watch this video every six months or so and cackle while swirling my brandy
me everyday in life.
I’m a fucking musical genius deal with it
