Stockpile

As many of you are aware, I spent a season, with much of your help, rescuing cats in the Madison, TN area. I have since relocated and have brought all the unhomeable and special needs cats with me. They include “Not Moe” and “Buddy” both of which are FIV+ and may otherwise be euthanized, “Mr. Siamese” who was abandoned at a local drug store (and has behavior issues), “Tabby” and her kittens whom a neighbor wanted to shoot and kill, and so many others. I also have a near 20 year old turtle who a restaurant owner once asked me “how would like him cooked” when he was just a baby being sold on the streets of Chinatown in New York City. He could live to be 40.

Maintaining the home is largely an entrepreneurial venture funded by my business, Lemur Technology LLC – by computer repairs, internet marketing, etc. But if anyone ever wants to donate or has a lead on good prices on these items, it would be most helpful. I am in a rural area, largely to accommodate those I rescued, and as such, inclement weather will effectively strand us. I stockpiling for when it’s undrivable or inclement.  you can paypal at http://paypal.me/careycat , go to my Amazon wish list which delivers right to our door: http://a.co/9szBtrv or an ongoing GofundMe.  We can always use additional quantities of anything even if it’s just a roll of paper towels if you see me out-and-about somewhere. Some cats ‘miss the box’ daily. Paper towels and Mr. Clean are our best friends.

I once put on boots and snow gear to walk 20 minutes in an ice storm for laxative for my abandoned rescue Kiki, she could have died that day due to her kidney / liver failure. The car wasn’t going to leave the driveway, so I hoofed it. I am now too far away to do that. So I am working hard and have been working hard to stockpile things I need to help give my rescues the best lives some of them have left.

I’ve included Amazon and Walmart links where possible for illustrative purposes only, i.e, if you want to see what it looks like. Some of the pricing is good, others we’re way better off getting it locally.
