The story of "The Rise And Fall Of Ladycat3" is being delayed a week because what I am writing about is much more important den a story about me. You see, my good friend @CatNamedSinbad and mama desperately need help. Before I get into their story tho, Sinbad's mama sent the following video to M last night. We both had leaky eyes after watching it.
Sinbad's mom also provided the following link because the lyrics are easier to hear, tho the picture is not of sinbad.
Now on with Sinbad's story:
Several months ago Sinbad’s mom lost her job. They have been living with a friend the past few months and sharing the cost of the living quarters. But now dat friend has also lost her job and is going to have to move to a smaller place. Sinbad’s mom has depleted all her personal funds and was on the edge of becoming homeless when she was recently offered job working for one of our national parks in another state. Housing will be provided for her. But, she is not able to take Sinbad with her because the place where she will be working does not allow their employees to bring their pets. (Dat’s a very dumb rule, if you ask me – hisss at those peope.) She had to make a tough decision – either be homeless herself (and Sinbad too) or take the new job and get back on “her feet” so to speak, but leave her beloved Sinbad behind in CA.
Sinbad’s mom is heartbroken dat she has to leave Sinbad in California. But the lady they have been living with has offered to take Sinbad with her to her new apartment, even tho she really isn’t a cat/animal person. Dat lady has already told Sinbad’s mom she doesn’t have money for vet bills. If something happens to Sinbad, she would have to put him to sleep forever.
When M heard all of dies, she immediately volunteered to take Sinbad with the understanding his mom could have him back at some point when she could provide for him. But Sinbad doesn’t travel well at all and doesn’t adjust to new places or people very well (WI is a long way from CA) Sinbad would not do well traveling this far. If he stays in California, at least he will know the lady he is already living with and will have some other familiar things around him.
M den offered to do a fund raiser for dem because Sinbad needs to have his shots updated and some dental work done. Sinbad’s mom isn’t sure, but he might have other health issues, so she also wants blood work done too. Sinbad’s mom feels terrible that she has to ask for help, but wants what is best for Sinbad. She wants to take Sinbad to the vet before she makes the move at the end of this month to have his medical needs attended to. Any leftover money would be saved for future vet bills.
We contacted our good friend @ForeverGinger, and her mama created the Chip_in Page for us.
Please consider donating something to help Sinbad get the medical attention he needs. Think about how you would feel if you had no money left and were on the edge of being homeless and couldn’t provide for your beloved pet. It’s sad enough dat she can’t take Sinbad with her. No amount is too small because every little bit helps. I know Sinbad’s mom will be grateful for any help she receives.
Thank you for helping my friend @CatnamedSinbad.
P.S. –Here are two of my favorite photos dat Sinbad created for me. He liked to surprise some of his friends with picture now and then.
