Dearest friends and donors,
By now all of you probably know what had happened not very far from Danica's shelter, where a horrible fire stroke a cat/dog shelter, and the owner together with many cats, died.
Danica eventually ended up with 18 new cats. Some of those are not neutered/spayed, and some are sick with all kinds of problems, and all of them are very scared and confused, as one might imagine.
Danica is taking them to the vet all the time, and the vet has been trying to asses different health problems, which are serious or infectious, and which are not. They have no names, and Danica calls them either Female or Male. She has had way too much on her back, and got sick from all this horror herself. She also got an infection in her eyes from the new cats, believe it or not, and she is taking the same eye drops as the kitties! It would be funny if it were not so sad.
Many of your were really responsive to this tragedy, and extra efforts Danica must put into taking care of all these new cats. One can only try to imagine how incredibly hard it must be. Please, try to donate as much as you can! Plenty of work has to be done (fixing the shelter itself, so it can function better and give new space to these new cats), so the bills are never ever ending.
Again, you all have been gracious and recognized this extra need, and Danica and her cats will never, ever forget that. Danica appreciates it beyond description! Thank you all so much!
