My name is Priscilla Wood and I live in Tampa, FL. My sister, Margaret, had a health issue about 10 days ago where paramedics found her unconscious in her apartment in Coatesville, PA. She underwent dialysis but is still very ill. She is currently rehabilitating at Brandywine Hall.
She has three cats who were taken to Chester County SPCA by animal control. She has been told that they're alive, but she is being charged $25 per day per cat for as long as they house them. She does not know her prognosis, and is unsure whether she'll eventually recover. She also cannot afford the fee to have them to released to her should she recover.
I would like to know if there's any way you can help. I have three cats of my own, and my landlord will not allow me to take anymore. My sister does not want them euthanized, nor does she feel comfortable leaving them at Chester County.
Please contact me via pawmail if you can give me any information about local, no-kill shelters that might be able to help.

It is with great sadness that I tell you all Leel was peacefully put to rest today. He was diagnosed with abdominal lymphoma several weeks ago, and rather than put him through life extending, yet torturous, treatment, I opted to make him as comfortable as I could until he let me know it was time to go.
He stopped eating this past week, and also started to show little interest in his favorite activities. Even though he still seemed happy and perky today, I did not want him to weaken to the point of pure misery and discomfort. Cats who stop eating decline very, very quickly. Although thin and worn down by disease, he was still such a beautiful boy. I will miss him so much because I loved him so much.
