    I know the economy still sucks for most of us here & kitty adoptions are way out of the picture but it’s looking like I have to find new homes for my furkids. I refuse to turn them over to animal control. And they’re way to healthy for considering ‘over the bridge’. I couldn’t live w/myself anyways if I could do the latter. If they were to be adopted they may never adjust bcuz they’ve been w/me here isolated for so long. What I mean by that is sio much time was involved in caring for Chuck when he was sick & all the time spent at the hospital there was no one-on-one time w/me for them. I have practically no company over due to the endless work of downsizing belongings & paperwork. So there are only 2 kits that are somewhat adaptable to others besides me. The others freak out horribly. They’re all between the ages of 8 & 14yrs. You all know how difficult it is to adopt out senior kits. I also promised Chuck b4 he passed that I would take care of his Misty for him. Misty & her bro Spunky are inseperatable. My only vehicle would not be big enuf for my personal belongings & 2 kits as well. Besides that…my truck is acting up now when I least need it to. I can’t even afford to keep it registered.
    I have no idea how much longer I have here but do know I have to put the house up for sale. The mental anguish I’m going thru due to all this is becoming unbearable & I feel sometimes like I’m going to explode. I’ve never felt so alone in my entire life as I do right now. I’m losing the ability to make my own decisions & just don’t know what tio do or where to turn. If only I could make my kits understand what all these emotions mean for me & for them. They’re the innocent victims here. To be torn away from the only life & person they’ve known….it’s hard for me to deal with.

    Susie, I just wish that some wonderful person would swoop down and help you with the cats and everything else you are facing at the moment. How I wish it could all be solved and you could hop in your perfectly running truck and head off to visit with your lovely sister for a time so you could relax and give your mind and body time to heal.
    I think of you often and send Positive Vibes your way. I hope that new homes can be found for the cats that are able to adjust and that you are given more time with the house situation.

    mega vibes. hugs, love, and kisses to you. I wish I could help more…

    the only thing I can say is that I’ve been where you are now, and I survived. It nearly killed me to part with my kits 2 years ago. I still cry with tears running down my face for them and Debbie Stewart, buti realize that someday there will be a joyous reunion reunion in Heaven…

    Please consider talking to God…and please go to your nearest Church. Sometimes they can help when no one else can…

    or your nearest hospital…

    I was just going thru my papers and I found these quotes from the Bible. maybe they can help…

    Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus, Amen.

    By his divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life. We have received all of this by coming to know him, the one who called us to himself by means of his marvelous glory and excellence. And because of his glory and excellence, he has given us great and precious promises.

    And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.

    Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your path.

    and God never puts one thru more than they can handle…(this one was a very hard lesson for me)

    believe that God has a plan for each of us…

    For sure quotes can provide solace whatever one’s religion is.
    I’m 100% not dismissing spiritual encouragement, so please, don’t anyone think that I am. But this said, on a practical level, if you are feeling this hopeless Susie, please call or visit, as Cheri mentioned, a church, or a hospital ER, your doctor or a clinic, a crisis hotline, a family member if this is an option. There is help out there. Take good care and blessings that you can make the connections that you need.

    I’m ready to give up. Everything & anything that needs to be taken care of is on hold. I’m now sick. My biggest worry was not to get sick. The temps. in my house are still plunging into the 30’s & I’m having to skip eating at least 3 days a week,. More now since I’m too sick to get up & rummage for something to eat. My poor kits are using soiled boxes & have been for days bcuz I don’t have the strength to get up & clean them. I’m scrambling to try & keep what I’m sick w/from going into my tonsils which I still have. I fear I’m going to lose that fight. I’m slowly falling into a black hole ^& am losing grip by the hour. I’m losing hope that any prayer I attempt is a waste of time. It seems it’s not in the cards for me to survive this all.

    Susie–get to the emergency department of your nearest hospital at once. You cannot deal with this alone. The ED will be able to help you with your immediate illness, and the hospital social worker should be able to connect you with resources to deal with your other problems. Not eating is very serious, and so is the inability to care for the cats. If you can’t drive, ask a neighbor to drive you. If all else fails, call 911. This is a critical situation, Susie. Please summon the strength you have left so you can draw on others’ strength. Remember, too, that hospitals are required by law to stabilize people who come to the ED regardless of their ability to pay.

    Susie, I have said this before and will re-iterate what Leeny has wisely said. The ER – NOW. If I were there I would take you. Not eating 100% effects your thinking process – at the very least drink water. You need help and there is no shame in asking for it. Please take some action that will put you in contact with those who can help, please do it now. And let us know the outcome.

    1. Does anyone know where Susie lives, and
    2. At what point should the authorities be contacted and asked to do a welfare check?

    She lives in California. Last known addy is on the holiday card list, but I can’t get at my copy.
    Susie, I hope you are at the ER now. Please check in.

    I don’t even know where my copy of the list is; the holidays were overrun by surgeries.
    TDKers, will those who know Susie’s address please identify yourselves, without disclosing the address on the public forum? We may not need it, but if we do, it will be good to know ahead of time where we can get it.

    She had a sister, Jeankit, but I don’t think she’s posted here for a while.

    I looked her up on FB, but looks like she is hard to reach. I see her address on the TDK mailing list. Think we should call out there and have them do a well check? Law enforcement does it all the time. I don’t know why I didn’t think to tell her to call 911! Thanks Leeny and KJ for being on top of it! Poor Susie and kits…. ๐Ÿ˜ฅ

    Yes Kittyzee,

    Call 911. I don’t believe Susie is fully aware of her situation. I have seen this before but hopefully, she is just fine.

    It breaks my heart to read how desperate life has become for Susie. No heat and food, it’s not right.
    Has anyone called for a wellness check to be done?
    Or contacted her sister?

    Susie, please take care of yourself. Hope you feel better soon.

    Checking in to see how things are going. I’m glad that Susie and her sister have been in touch with each other. I’m hoping to see Susie post soon, telling us that things are better.
