First things need to be put first, and all of our recent efforts have been concentrated on raising the funds for heating fuel, as keeping all of the elderly, chronically ill and delicate kitties warm is always of the utmost importance during the cold season. This winter was unbelievably hard and heartbreaking for us, although the weather itself wasn’t as harsh as it could’ve been – some of our precious kitties sadly weren’t strong, healthy or lucky enough to make it until spring. And now, instead of mourning those we’ve lost and terribly miss, and instead of laying low and licking our wounds, we need to focus on the three digit number of sweet, furry creatures which all depend on us – and on you.
Our debt at the vet’s is up around 400 euros already and will get larger as the additional cost of de-worming and de-fleaing all of the shelter kitties is awaiting us next week. The even more serious problems are our expenses for food (which are always high) are becoming literally frighteningly high during the transitional season, when the temperature differences between day and night are vast and even the toughest kitties easily get sick if they’re not fed properly and abundantly.
Honestly, we don’t feel comfortable asking for help over and over again but the truth is we can’t do much without your support. Is there anything more heartwarming than the sight of content, happy kitties which don’t have to wonder where their next meal will come from?
All of the Felix cats know what hunger feels like, they’re all familiar with neglect and the danger of life on the streets and when they found their safe haven, their first and only home, can we possibly all gather together to provide them with what they need most?
If you’re able to donate any amount please do so, as everything adds up and keeps these wonderful creatures’ eyes bright and their purrs loud! If you’re ever questioned if and how much the kitties appreciate your kindness and generosity, just look at them! As to us, their staff, we are grateful beyond words for all of the help we get!
