I need some advice. My parents have 2 cats which are being neglected. I want to take them in, but I don't have any extra cash. Both cats need spaying. Meggie (who used to be mine, got her from a local no-kill shelter) has a lot of health problems. She needs all her teeth pulled, probably has a lot of gum problems. She can't eat dry cat food because of her teeth. The only thing she eats is trout (my dad loves to fish, so no problems there.) My parents won't take her to the vet, and I don't have the money. The other cat, Boo is healthy, she is just constantly in heat, and extremely destructive. Hopefully getting her fixed will take care of that. Both cats are constantly locked up in the basement, they get little to no affection from my parents. My dad does change the litterbox about once every two weeks (non clumping litter, it's an old drawer from a dresser so it's pretty big) I really want to rescue these babies! And I'm not sure what kind of quality of life Meggie could expect with no teeth. It may be a kindness to put her down, although I hate to do it. She was my baby before I went to college. Does anyone have any suggestions?
