Chrissy Is Very Sick
02/20/11 Dear Friends of the Kitties Special Announcement: This is a very hard one to write since it so personal and Chrissy needs help. But you all must know the severity of the situation I love my wife very much but Chrissy is very sick. She is breaking down due to her schedule and the lack of funds to see the Doctor and dentist and proper food in the house at all times. We have Chrissy on the Meals on Wheels Program. She use to drink the Ensure to help her daily but we can not longer afford them. Once again our food in the house in nill. She barley survives on a dinner TV a day and now the Meals on Wheels program but that is not enough. She is underweight and weights 96 pounds. Her normal weight is only 105 pounds but has not been that since the ban of all volunteers at the Haven. Today Chrissy has the start of a bad virus. She has never been a well person. We almost lost her a few times in the past year due to her weaken immune system. In addition to this her knuckles are so swollen and they are infected. They are painful to touch. She has a very bad case of rheumatoid arthritis. We need to have her rings cut off by the Doctor on Monday She has 2 broken teeth that the roots are exposed and they are infected and the pain is unbearable at times. She need to go see her Doctor and a Dentist. Yet we have no funds for these either. Her immune system is weaken by the grueling schedule she keeps. She is exhausted taking care of 246 kitties by herself. Without Chrissy there is will be no Haven. Her daily schedule consist of hauling in 660 pounds of cat litter around the Haven & takes in back out. She washes over 30 cat litter boxes daily. Every four hours she puts out the wet cat food at 18 feeding stations. She vacuum & mops and dust daily. She gives out meds. She brushes the kitties. She tends to the sick ones. She runs to the Vet and the store for supplies too. She does this day in and day out all by herself. But it finally has caught up with her today. She needs my help and my best friends Jeff's, help today. Right now I'm a slave to the Thrift Shop in raising the $250 needed to take care of the kitties today. We will run out of supplies by 9pm tonight. Please free me by donating so Jeff and I may go back to the Haven to help Chrissy, who is not doing well at all. In closing I must go back to the Haven and help Chrissy so she may get the much needed bed rest so she can recover in a timely fashion. But I can not with out your help. I beg of you today and ask for your mercy anyone who is reading this can donate $10 each. We will be able to send Chrissy to the Doctors and dentist and get food back in the house for her and we can make it through today and a few days after so we can give Chrissy the much needed bed rest she needs to get well. We will not be able to continue on without Chrissy getting better. Not only does the cats need you but their primary care give needs your help today.
