Q: Too many rescued cats

March 20, 2009 | By Admalec927 | 5 answers | Expired: 1846 days ago

Me and my family live in a 3 bedroom apartment and we have 10 cats that we have rescued from the streets.They all are females ages from 4 to 5 months to 3 years old.But my husband just lost his job and we are running out of ways to support them. Can't afford to take them to the vet. And we don't want to send them to the pound because they have so many they have to put them to sleep. Ihave one cat that is allergic to fleas and she is broke out all over. And she would be the first to be put to sleep. All she needs, All they all need is a real good home that can afford them. It's not that we don't love them, they are like our children. I just don't know what to do. Can you please give me an ideah of how to handle our problem?

Can you put up signs at petco, pets-mart, Vet office?? but you might just have to invest in front-line, its expensive but it will kill everything within 48 hrs, 1 cat will give it to all & they should be kept inside, nothing over the counter it has been known to kill dogs & cats, especially kittens & pups, no one will want to bring fleas in the house and it is not fair not to tell them, also tell them they are not fixed, have no shots if they don't and that is whay are are giving them away, because you can't afford to take care of them, people appreciate honesty. Good Luck!

Try to find a no-kill shelter in your area. Almost every city has at least one. Good luck.
