I admit it, I need help, I need a Christmas Angel...

ineedanangelnow started this conversation
Okay, I was so desperate I Googled "I need an angel" and this website came up. I'll admit it, I need help. I guess I am kinda homeless, I've been living with a friend since I was evicted a couple of months ago. No job, no car, it has been a struggle, but I always made it, until September when everything fell apart. Can't go to my daughter, her marriage is falling apart (really sad). I just got out of nearly a week in the hospital and I thought everything was going to be okay, just make it through the holidays, but the friend I am living with, well, he's manic depressive, SAD, bi-polar (you name it, he says he has it) and he is starting to go a little nuts for Christmas. I've been calling for shelters, but I have 2 cats and no one will take my cats in. Friends? Yes, where are my friends I have given to so freely, where are they, they all disappeared on me when I lost my cute apartment they all had so much fun in. Not a one would even help me move. I can't believe this is my Christmas, I'm usually the one who puts up all of the trees and throws the gatherings and buys the presents. But right now, I am waiting to see if he screams "get out" at me today and me and my 2 cats in carriers walk out his door going "now what?" I need help!

I really should go though, I can't live like this, so I have my sister coming by to bring me to an apartment I found that will not need a security deposit and is offering one month free and I may be able to swing it. :) We'll see....

Hello again and that is sad when you lost your apartment no one who had fun there came to help you move. I have experienced that in my last two moves. I had someone from here help me pack to move here and I spent months getting ready for the move. As I wanted to move back to the beach just didn't work out. In the end I gave away a lot or it got left behind. I hope you find another place to live. Google.com pet friendly apartments.
Sorry to hear you got out of the hospital just recently. Hope you feel better.

 in response to ineedanangelnow...   You are welcome and thank you. Sunny was a pretty dark and light orange striped tabby. I miss him a lot. Someday another cat will come into my life like he did. Orange tabbies are pretty popular. How is your orange tabby attitude? My deceased cat was like a tiger, he was friendly, a lap cat and taught him wait, sit, come when I whistled, shake hands but he could be rough. He loved to play and the outdoors he loved.

 in response to Starshine...   Thank you starshine, what a lovely post. I have spent a lifetime rescuing cats, I cannot start abandoning them now. I made calls today, maybe something can come from it. :) Funny, my second cat is an orange tabby.

You are welcome and I know the feeling my animals many of them came from people who couldn't have them and my last pet, Sunny a orange tabby came to mom's deceased mothers door in 2003, he was 14 months. I took him in and called rescue groups all filled up. So I took him to the vet and he was with me for 7 years plus till he got kidney disease he could not beat in the long run so I had to put him to sleep three months ago today. I could never put him to the pound and look at rescue places and was told if you can keep the cat better for him than to live at a rescue shelter out by me and it didn't sound good. There is a great no kill cat shelter cat of kings on the hills in Fresno area. She lets them run around and the place is spottless plus she is a vet tech and the ones that are sick are taken care of with medicine and many of them are healthy just need homes. I wanted this tabby from there so bad and he is the last to be adopted out as with Sunny his brothers and sisters where at the pound with him.

My last cat came from the pound I found out from the previous owner. And he hated to be couped up in a cage. He was 3 months old when the first owner got him.

I have jobideas work from home. See if you can work it out where you are at and it is hard living with someone if they aren't seeing someone and taking their meds. I know a gal from aother site and she has problems if her man is not taking his meds.

I hope you find a way to keep the cats and you will if you are determined.

Shelters
Shelters are public places that provide protection, food, and help for people in need. These facilities can be found across the United States, and have been around for many decades now. It is common to find both women and men doing volunteer work in shelters to assist people who are homeless, battered, or victims of natural disasters. These emergency facilities are great places for people to go in a time of need so that they can find some kind of relief. There are many kinds of shelters that assist both people and animals. While one shelter may be for battered women who have suffered from domestic violence and abuse, another one might be more family-oriented and suited for victims of a tornado or hurricane disaster. The goal of animal shelters in particular is to rescue abused and abandoned pets in order to keep them safe and put them up for adoption, whereas homeless shelters provide a place for people to stay and sleep until they are able to return home. When a major fire, flood, or earthquake is involved, this can take some time. Fortunately, for most people, there is likely to be a shelter in your area. A lot more can be learned about homeless facilities, pet adoption, domestic violence shelters, and volunteer work online. In fact, you can find out a great deal pertaining to your area if you choose to. There may even be shelters in your town or city, where you can consult people who work there to learn more.

Shelters are warm, dry, safe places to house stray animals or homeless people. Shelters for humans are also called soup kitchens, rescue missions, refuges, and homeless shelters. Shelters for animals are also called rescue missions and pounds. For help, you can find shelters of any kind by performing an online directory listings search. Other types of shelters can include battered and abused women's shelters, disaster relief sites, and triage centers. Sometimes, makeshift shelters are set up to assist victims of emergency evacuation situations due to fire, earthquake, flood, hurricane, or tornado. Most shelters provide a warm place to stay, extra clothing, a meal, and a place to sleep—all free of charge. Many shelters also provide people with referrals to counselors or social workers after their stay. Shelters and soup kitchens rely heavily on volunteers to help serve meals and show a happy face to people in need. Target your search to shelters that offer what you need, whether for animals, rescue mission, homeless, or abused women and children. You can find out more about shelters and what they provide online. If there is a disaster near you, you can go online to government websites and private centers to learn how you can help and lend a hand with triage, medical services, food distribution, logistics, and general victim and family assistance. There is another way you can help in an emergency or disaster relief situation—give blood. Go online to find out where to donate blood in your community. Or, try volunteering with your family at a soup kitchen on the weekends, or even on a holiday like Thanksgiving.

I have tried the DHS route and no I don't qualify for assistance beyond food stamps/medicaid, but I am grateful for that, but no housing help. The craigslist is a good idea though. Its just that, well, oh crap, I didn't think I would be in this situation. Oh well, keep moving onward. Here is my white cat, Puffy.
