The Story

I am so embarrassed to have to ask for help for Lou (my cat) and I.

I had a job offer and an apartment all lined up for Lou and I to move to a few weeks ago.  In mid move, both job and apartment offers were rescinded.  Lou and I wound up in a hotel, homeless.

We were homeless, until we found a place to stay on a friends' couch that was supposed to be until I found a car, a place to live and other employment.  I got the car--something I found in a junkyard that runs and that I hope passes inspection, and I've had interviews for employment (but no firm offers), but I haven't found a place to live yet.

 Now, through no fault of our own, we've lost even being able to stay on the couch, due to a family crisis on the part of my hosts.

I had no idea the family was in crisis until the names of various agencies started getting mentioned..and it seems as if there is a new one every few days..and they're getting more and more serious.

Last night, Lou and I were asked to leave.   I am desperate.  Lou and I have nowhere to go, and no one to turn to.  No family; no friends left who will or can help us.  Lou and I are truly, truly stuck, and I am at once scared and heartsick and completely disgusted.

I don't want to have to give up Lou, who has been with me since he was a tiny kitten, and I don't want to have to go live under a bridge.  Giving up Lou and living under a bridge, however, is exactly what's going to happen if I don't get the help I need, and soon.

Please help us.

Thank you all so much for donating to my fundraiser.  Lou and I are now renting a room, and life is starting to look up just a bit.  We've got a long way to go, though, before we're out of the woods.

Well, we have found a temporary place to be.  It's small, but the people around are all decent, and for the time being, we are safe.

We have a bit of a ways to go before we are secure, though.

We are doing what we can to improve our situation; I have a job interview tomorrow and am hoping for the best.

Thank you all for your help, so far.

I am safe, for now.

 I am now in a rented room.

If I can stay, depends on if Lou gets along with resident cats, etc.

I am one step closer to permanence, but I still have such a long way to go.  

I really appreciate all that is being done for, and offered to me.

Thank you all!
