I'm in a bad situation and I'm hoping and praying that someone can help me out or give me some suggestions.
I've posted here about my cat, Friskie, before. She had a mouth infection and also allergies to fleas. Okay, she took the meds for the mouth infection and it cleared up. She took the meds for the allergies as well and her fur grew back.
The problem now is that she's still totally depressed, won't come near any of the other cats, and only sits near the food & water bowls and won't leave from there. She's lost weight, too. Lately, she has been "perching" herself on a towel rack in my bathroom and won't come down (it's the type of rack that's set up high (6 feet) and has two poles sticking out that you put the towels on). I've taken her down (and she's held on for dear life) and put her out of the bathroom, but she runs right back in. I've closed the bathroom door, but there's a 4 inch space on the top of the door so she climbs UP the door and wiggles through the space and to her perch. Yesterday, she actually poo'd in the bathroom and I had to clean it up.
I really can't handle this anymore. Much as I love Friskie, I have a child to take care of, as well as other cats to tend to, a job, and a million other things to do. I would much rather have Friskie go to a home where she can get the 100% attention she needs since I can't do it.
I don't have the money for vet bills since I lost my "good" job and am now barely scraping by. I know the last time I took her to the vet, they wanted to do blood work on her, but I didn't have the money for it or for any meds or treatment she may have needed.
Anyway, does anyone know of a cat rescue on Long Island? Or is there anyone here from Long Island who would be willing to adopt her? She's a 6 year old domestic shorthair "Tuxedo" cat. I don't want to drop her at the pound because it's unlikely (at her age) that she would be adopted.
Thanks in advance!!!!!
