you might have seen some of this from my recent uploads, but heres a short version of the story
my mom and I were helping my aunt and uncle clean apartments that people moved out of and found three abandoned cats (in a very disgusting 3rd story apartment). we captured them and took them to the local humane society and, to be short, they called us and said "do you want to take these cats because theyre "unhandleable" and "feral" and will be put down" so we ... well, we had to adopt them. we werent going to leave them there to die because the humane society didnt want to do their job.
for the record, the cats arent feral like they claimed. at all. when we paid for them to get fixed the vets said they were able to handle them just fine without trouble and/or injury. we can handle them just fine too, they just show signs of being abused (presumably by their previous owners) -- not liking to be pet, flinching/running away when moving hands, etc
problem is, we do not have the kind of income to support them. we already have two cats (now 5 with these new 3) and have a hard enough time paying our bills. after our experience at the humane society, im scared to give them to anyone else, that they'll be mistreated again, or put to sleep. we're almost out of cat food already and just bought some last week. overall ... we need help to help them.
ill be putting up commissions soon. but if you want to donate or want to know more, please send a note here on my dA or write me at firstname.lastname@example.org! thank you for reading ♥
