From Orange Ruffy, Warrior Poet of Catster,
Dear Folks and Furs,
I am calling in a MIRACLE for a friend. It seems our dear Blizz Catfather and his family are facing a CRISIS.
You see, Daddy John, who has a large feline household of rescues-mainly abandoned near his door-has been out of work for a year. He has enough money to pay his rent through the end of December, but that is it.
John has been looking for work-any work. His car died on him this year. He helps out with a side job that gives him use of a van on occasion, but that is it and he must rely on Public Transportation in Taneytown, Md, not known for it's getting around by bus.
Daddy John needs WORK-and is willing to do whatever it takes-but he told us this morning-he is frightened he will have to start REHOMING the TANEYTOWN CREW!!!!
Now, mommy is out of work at the moment, so we cant' do this alone....but we know this is a big community out there that can help....
Daddy John is very embarassed, and worried. He's taken in cats others have thrown away, and fed them and paid for vet bills by what little he has left-but it's running short and we ourselves are worried for him. Please, please Catster and cat family-lets keep a roof over this little family's head. Daddy John is not too proud to beg for his guys-he has already sold his TV, and most things of value when any of the Furs have required vet care.
Daddy John worked as a truck driver at his last job, but does not have a CDL license, which costs a bit to get as it inovlves trianing. He was supposed to have training through the state, but due to budget cuts it was 'cut' too.
Please...if anyone in any way can help-we know he'd appreciate it....this is devestating.
Bliz's Catster page... We know that he and his dad would appreciate any advice or help with jobs, or offers of temp foster care if it comes to that....

We're sending lots of purrs to Blizzard and his family, and hopes that a job is around the corner ASAP for his Daddy!
We so sorry to hear this news. So many our friends are in this kind of position.
We purrs for a Christmas miracle for Bliz's family and others that needs help.
We are in CA so we are not much help with lots of this, but we are sending major purrs. We had no idea things were so bad. Christmas miracles time!
We are in CA. too and can't help with any jobs, but maybe we could do a auction to help in some ways.
We are purring and praying for the help he needs....we are not on much right now, but we are willing to help if we can just don't know how except by sending a little money....
Sending lots of purrs to him.
We are adding our fervent and loudest meezer purrs. And pawyers, too.
We see that he has now made all his kitties pages as adoptable...so sad.
He wants to delete his pages, too...shouldn't he just leave them up, just so, even as inactive, so we can look at them and reminisce over them?
Sigh...this is so sad.
This is horrible. We're purring for a miracle. Something may still happen. We just don't know what we can do to fix the problem.
Any way to set up a fund to contribute some assistance ?
We don't want to see John lose his family.
Praying like crazy.
Bliz and family are not too far from me....if you have a way to reach him tell him that there may be some seasonal openings with the Montgomery County Dept of Parks (that could lead into full time positions year round)...if he is willing to consider them. He does not live in Montgomery County MD but that does not matter they need people to do all kinds of things. It would be a paycheck and a good possibility.....
