Tumblr, we need your help!
Look at these babies. They’re my and my girlfriend's precious kittens, Seven and Karkat. We've had them since they were born back at the end of April, and they're the only surviving two of my girlfriend's family's cat's litter. They're healthy and wonderful and both fixed (wouldn't want any odd brother-sister shenanigans going on…).
They are inside cats because we don’t want them to get infested with fleas, ticks, or worms, and they hate the outdoors anyway.
Onto the problem.
My girlfriend’s parents are threatening to give our kittens away because they don’t want to pay for cat litter or food anymore. Of course, my girlfriend would LOVE to pay for them and move out, but there’s a snag in this idea.
She can’t seem to grab a job. She lives in a small town, and virtually NOWHERE is hiring. To make matters worse, her parents never take her around to practice driving, so she doesn’t even have her license yet. Despite this, they’re pressuring her to move out and get a job.
I can’t do anything because I don’t have a job either, and am pressed with college and commuting back and forth every day. I also live with my parents, and even if you overlook us living in a rent trailer, they already said no pets allowed.
So for now, all I can do is hold my breath and ask for help; just enough to get my girlfriend on stable footing and keeping our kitties from being taken away from us.
If you want to help, please send me an ask! Hey, if you want, I can even draw something for you for compensation (you can see my art here). She could draw for you too, maybe? Or even a collaboration between us!
Seven is my first pet in years and years. I don’t want to lose him. And I know she doesn’t want to lose Karkat, and she also wants to get out of her house. Even if you can’t do anything, a signal boost would be nice, too, okay?
Thank you for your time.
