Some positives !

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I've decied to donate some money every month to the cats protection league or some other cat charity. This way I can still feel I am helping cats but at the same time not be directly involved with cats.

I have joined some other forums that are to do with the other hobbies I have not just cats !! And I am going to try and get more involved in the community with hobbies I have i.e join a sewing group.

I will be seeing my phycotherapist a week on Monday. He is so very helpful and I will talk a lot to him about how I can tackle my problems in a better healthier way. A child that does not learn to face up to their responsibilities for whatever reason sadly because an adult that can't face up to their responsibilities. No more when I've got a problem, drop everything and start over. This has happened with other important things like work, friends even though those cats was far worse imo. Anyway I am still young 21 and I am certain if I work with the right people I can over come this and learn to tackle problems head on and no longer in such a destructive way.

Sadly support worker was ill today so I havn't been able to see her.

PDSA has been phoned and I will be going there tomorow to register and make an apointment for Nefertiti's spay.

And on a happier note !! I brought home a catnip mouse today. Nefertiti was completely over the moon with it. Rolling around batting it and tossing it in the air. I've never seen her so playful she went wild !! Mungo-Jerry and Rumpleteazer didn't seem that interested in it. I wonder if it is that at their age (10 weeks) their senses havn't developed fully yet?

Thank you to every one for your honesty and support

It's good that you want to donate and help other cats. In your position though, wouldn't it be better for you to start a separate bank account for care for your own cats?

Ths is also a good idea. PDSA provides free vetinary care 24-7 for those on benefits. So their vet care is very secure but I think it's a great idea to have a saving fund for your pets.

I may need cab fair to get them to the PDSA pet hospital, or heaven forbid need to pay for some one to house sit in an emergency, or if the money gets a bit tight have some spare cash to dip into for their foods.

Good idea

Also theres the saving up to do for that cat tree !!!

It's important to prioritize. Toys are fun but I wouldn't go all out buying expensive toys or cat trees if I had any doubts that I'd need the money for vet care. I'm just saying you don't need to worry about expensive cat trees, your kitties can be entertained with something very simple. A lot of times I feel like toys are more for the humans than the cats, because I've bought tons of cute looking balls in pink and all pretty colors and glitter for Jake but he still likes to chase after balled up newspapers way better because they make noise and the paper is just so interesting to him any time he hears me touching paper he begs for me to make a ball out of it so he can chase it...So don't feel like toys are a big necessity.
Anyways, I'm so glad you are going to talk to a health professional next week. I hope that goes really well

Pumpkin is a big fan of crumpled receipts. They make very economical toys, since they're free and tend to accumulate. Recyclable, too.

RussianKitten, it's good to hear that you're confronting things head on. Do keep us posted, and don't forget to post cat pictures.
