Sick Cat 🐈:
My cat Clyde is 13 years old. He’s one of the sweetest cuddle buddies I’ve ever had. He’s my emotional support animal, as well as my roommates’ ESA. He’s an amazing cat who deserves the best treatment and care, and unfortunately, he’s sick. Earlier this morning, we discovered blood in his urine and he was throwing up milky, foamy bile as well as not eating his food. We took him to an emergency pet clinic around 12 (noon) – around the same time we discovered the blood and vomiting – and were here for about four hours. He’s still currently there because he was unable to produce a urine sample for them to test for a UTI, but they took blood tests.
They discovered that his glucose levels were very high and that he has diabetes, but that is for a different time and a different post. This post is me asking for help to pay this medical bill so that when it comes to buying insulin and taking him to his glucose screenings, we’re more readily able to pay for those things. This medical bill is going to set me back a lot because as of right now, two of my three roommates are unable to help reimburse, and I have to pay about $1000 in student loans and rent a month. This cost doesn’t include my own medical bills, transportation fees, groceries, and other spending that happens in my day to day life. The medical bill was just short of $600
If you could share this or donate, even just a little bit, I’d really appreciate it. I hate to ask this, but I need help and Clyde needs help and I want him to be as comfortable and healthy as he can be.

Meet Salem! She’ll be 4 years old in spring of next year. She’s extremely sweet and just wants to be a lap cat 24/7. Her hobbies include scratching her cat tree to ribbons when anyone opens a door, knocking her bed off the shelf she likes to sleep on, and shredding your junk mail for you. She is very playful and basically just wants to be loved.
Here’s the thing, though. I’m a truck driver, and I’m going to have to switch jobs pretty soon, and the job I’m going to have to take involves a lot of cross-country travel rather than the home every night job I have now. It’s not fair to her to pin her up inside of a tiny truck cab all the time, she doesn’t like car travel. So, I really would like to find her a good home where she’ll have the love, attention, and space she needs, and I need a little help getting the word out. She’s always been an only cat so I don’t know how she’d do in a multicat household. She is not up to date on shots (I’ve been struggling financially and no rescues in the area are able to take her), but she should be healthy, she’s been indoors with no other pets. If you don’t mind coming to central Florida to get her, she’s free to a good home.
