Help my pet cat
Someone wrote in to say that they were in financial problems and he needed some help with his cat. While I can sympathise that someone may have fallen on hard times, where do you draw the line? Our main work is to help community cats. He asked for $200-$300 a month to upkeep his cat. I don't believe the cat has any special needs but the money is for food and litter.
One option is possibly to cut down on the type of food. Some people like to feed both wet and dry food. One possibility is to feed one type - that's likely to cut down food expenses and make it easier to manage.
While we'd like to help, how do we decide to help one pet cat owner and not another? Also, community cat caregivers need help too - and many of them have numerous cats to look after. With limited resources, we have to concentrate on the community cats with responsible caregivers.
