I have fallen in love with a beautiful cat at a local PetSmart Center. She is a gorgeous seven-year-old Calico/Siamese mix. Her name is Kayla, but if I am able to adopt her, I will more than likely change her name to Victoria or Lily (at first when I saw her, she looked more like a Victoria, but now I'm leaning towards Lily). As much as I would love to take in this lovely cat, I simply do not have the means to do so. I mean, I have enough to adopt her and make sure that she is fed, but I would love to have MORE than enough to take care of her. You see, I'm trying to go back to school and start my own business (I haven't had much luck with finding a job in the mean time). In small words, funds are going out but hardly any are coming in (my mom works a full-time job at a hospital that she can't even afford to get sick in).
My reason for adopting "Kayla" exceeds her good looks and her charm. According to her bio, she would do better in a single-cat home. I'm not sure if it's true, but I've heard that it's much harder for cats with that stigma to find their forever home. Also, her age is working against her. She's only seven and although this isn't old at all in cat years, many people think it is and it's a lot harder for "older" cats (or any cat over the age of one, for the fact) to find a home.
If you donate to this cause, most of the funds will go in a savings account STRICTLY for "Kayla." This account will help me feed, vaccinate, and care for this amazing feline to the best of my ability. Most of the money will go towards a monthly plan at a local vet that will ensure that she gets the best preventative and medical care humanly possible for AT LEAST two years.
If I am unable to adopt "Kayla" at the end of the road, ALL of the money will go to PetSmart's Charities -- an organization that helps numerous homeless animals find homes all across the U.S.
