🥺🙏🏻HELP NEEDED 🙏🏻🥺
Did you know that ALL care & veterinary costs our foster babies incure is paid OUT OF POCKET by our carers & coordinator. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
UCWC currently have more than 20 cats & kittens between our carers with new mummas and babies lined up and waiting to come in
Personally, for the past 10-11 weeks I've been caring for 13 in total!
2 Mums and their 11 babies
After almost 3 months in care, feeding 2 litters of hungry mums & baby cats on solids is getting EXPENSIVE!!!
13 mouths that need to be fed 3-4 times daily.... that's around 40-50 portions PER DAY!!!!! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In September & October alone I spent $576 on food, litter & essentials only!! Don't even want to think about what November's loss will be 💸
This week marks the final stretch of their time in care but it's easily the most expensive!
Desexing & microchipping week.
Today we desexed 8 babies putting almost $2000 on the UCWC credit card 💳 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If anyone would be able to spare anything at all, wether it's $1, a tin of food or even just to share this post!ANY and ALL assistance you could give would be REALLY appreciated right now!!! 🙏🏻❤🐈
* we can provide invoices/proof of payment for all medical expenses paid for by donations
