Help us care for stray Indicats and homeless kittens

Hello Good People,

We are Socky's Friends. Socky, a.k.a. Socrates, was a regal golden-orange indie kitten, quite the Tiger-poocha, the apple of his hooman moms' eyes. He suffered from renal troubles from kittenhood and despite all possible medical intervention, crossed over the rainbow bridge in December 2015. Then his moms, broken hearted as they were, decided to give homes to us, sick strays, adult Indicats whom nobody else wanted to adopt, homeless kittens that other nasty cruel hoomans tied up in sacks and threw away in garbage bins. Our hoomans took 15 of us in, as that was the number they could afford to take proper care of, in terms of both money and time.
But, as luck would have it, one of these crazy cat ladies fell ill back in February (2017), and has been suffering from a prolonged illness that affected her lungs and worsened her already weak heart. Then, in June and July, 10 more motherless kittens got dumped on their doorstep. What could they do but take them in, too? Now, we are 25 adult cats and kittens, dependent on two hoomans. But, as it is said, misfortune never comes alone. Our Momma lost her job because of her illness.

Our hoomans are trying very hard to get us adopted into good homes; but as is common knowledge, it is very hard to get homes for non-breed Indicats like us. Neither can we survive on the streets, or shelters where they feed vegetarian daal-rice type of food to carnivores like us.

Hence, we are turning to you, good souls. Our hoomans need funds for us, to sustain us for 3 or 4 months, till our momma gets a job and also finds homes for the new kittens. It is nigh impossible for them to meet the cost of our upkeep, about 26-30 thousand INR, every month. The young ones also need their vaccines, and they must be neutered, too, just like us. All of this will need funds that our moms do not have right now. They have no other source of help, either.

Will you please help us? Our hoomans promis to pay it all forward, to some similar cause, after these 4 months. Every little that you can spare, will help us immensely. Will you please help?

With Love

Plato, Toothless, Cookie, Galahad, Pocha, Gochi, Simone Joan, Hutum, Nala, Paku, Dugdugi, Alexis, Penguine, O.J. and the young ones.

Hello friends,

we had a critical time in September. Posto, a 1.4-year-old pretty female cat had her pyometra burst. as cat-lovers know, pyometra is a silent killer. there is almost no distinctive symptom till the very point when it bursts, either inside the body or out of it. the first situation is mostly fatal as it leads to peritonitis in 90% cases. Posto was lucky because her pyometra burst out and we noticed it instantaneously. we arranged for an urgent surgery that very day and Posto is now recovered happily.

we also had our youngest rescue, a feisty 4-month old ginger girl, Pudding vaccinated with Tricat and anti-Rabies.

all this and the pending bills from before have made us badly cash-strapped. our usual vendor is refusing to deliver any further goods until the previous bills are cleared off. because of that, we had to buy food from a different vendor this one time.

please, we need your help. we are still very far from meeting our fund-raising goals.

regards

We lost our youngest kitten Impy to feline panleukopenia (wasn't detected till the last day of her life) and Plato to unknown malady which led to multiple organ failure within 3 days. No cause was revealed by extensive blood tests or USGs carried out. 10 more kittens fell ill with panleukopenia but managed to save all of them due  to early detection. We raised funds to meet hospital bills, medicine charges etc. In July, we managed to get all other 22 cats vaccinated with tricat and antirab. All treatments were carried out at Crown Vet Kalyaninagar, Pune.

However, all this has completely eroded our funds reserve and we direly need  help to meet our pending food bills.

Hello friends!

here we are again. during this duration, our baby NGO Socky's Friends has survived through severe loss, tragedy and hardships and still somehow has stayed afloat. we lost Impy, our youngest, to panleukopenia. her death, however, alerted us in time and we could save 10 other kittens who had attracted that deadly disease from some unknown source. you will be happy to know, we were able to save all 10 of them. then, just as we were unwinding a little from the grievous loss of Impy baby and the struggle of taking care of 10 suffering kittens, Plato (our eldest boy) fell ill and died within 20 days. doctors could not even identify the cause of his death.

friends, we lost Plato even though he was up to date with his vaccination. one can not stop a tragedy. after that, we managed to vaccinate and revaccinate all our 22 resident cats. we also carried out the neutering of 12 kids. but, we are again behind with bills need more funds to carry on caring for them.

therefore, please, please help again. all funds will be gifted forward to other needy NGOs as and when we have surplus funds, as we have been doing this entire time.

I wish all the kitties to find their forever homes, and all the TLC they need. I know for a fact that they are in good hands, but we also need every hand on the deck to help the kitties to get over these trying times.
