I'm dependent on the food stamp program - without which I probably could not have the company of my dearest love "Kiri" my cat -at times I can't imagine life without my one source of "intimacy" - thanks for this Cal!

When there is not enough for one's self to eat, that can be borne, but when there is not enough for those that one loves - be that family or pets - it's terrible and unendurable.
This program is doing a lot of good. Good on them!

I've been on food stamps, and barely have enough money to buy paper products like T-paper and things we need, then comes my cat, she won't eat people food, not even tuna, what to do about her. She didn't ask to live with a destitute woman. I've even thought about stealing cat food, but I just can't do it. I hope somebody helps those who are less fortunate to care for their companions. She doesn't eat much, but she's like a child, she can't fend for herself. If I had to give her up because I couldn't feed her, it would be like giving a child away.
