Tight Times

Things have really gotten tight for us in the last several weeks. We're struggling to catch up bills and we're having to take out advances from the bank which will put us short for money some more. Have you ever noticed how much more interest banks take for themselves than they give to the people? When my older human had money, he was recommended to inquire about certificates of deposit. At the time they only gave eight cents interest back. Such being the case, it's better just to buy something and get eight cents change you can actually see and feel in your hand (or paw, in my case). And lately we've had to eat food donated to our church's food bank because we can't get our own groceries over the month. And wouldn't you know my older human is developing a craving for pizza right when we have no money for a delivery? Worse yet, somebody's trying to force my younger human to get a rolling walker and battery-powered wheelchair when the walker a friend gave her is still in good condition and so is her solid-seat wheelchair. And nobody seems to be available to change light bulbs for us. Why can't people just give us help we actually ask for and leave the rest alone?

Bitu,

I'm so very sorry to hear about this. MomKatt says she can understand; she's a federal employee & she's been furloughed one day every two weeks from now 'til the end of Sept. It isn't putting us in dire straits, but it IS cutting into income, which is never good.

We're purring for you guys ... let us know if there is anything we can do. ((hug))

Love
Morticia
