BENEFITING: WellPet Humane
Harley’s mom adopted Harley when he was just one year old. Harley has been a source of happiness in his mom’s life, making her smile constantly with his awesome personality (which we can attest to! Harley loves to purr and “make biscuits”). Harley is currently under our care for a serious urinary blockage. Harley’s mom has been through many hardships over the past year and a half such as job instability, paired with personal issues involving her significant other, whom she has not heard from in a month and a half due to the dangerous nature of his job. Harley’s treatment is going well, but he still has several more days of treatment to go through—and these costs add up! Harley is our most recent recipient of the lifesaver grant; we are hoping to raise $250 to help cover the cost of Harley’s hospitalization.
From Harley's mom:
"I adopted Harley when he was just one years old, along with Felix who was his older companion. I lost Felix a couple of years ago to the same problem. The procedure was attempted and his heart just couldn’t take and he passed away on the table. Harley is more than just a cat. He makes me smile when I am down and is so laid back and has such an awesome personality. He gets along with everyone. The last year and a half has been extremely trying for me financially and personally. Over a year and a half ago I had to take a job in another state due to losing my job here in Georgia. The person in my life at the time wanted to break up. I was devastated and blindsided from all angles. I up and moved to a place I knew no one and a place I had never even visited. It was the start of the loneliest time of my life. If it wasn’t for my guys, Harley isn’t the only one; I don’t know what I would do. They know when I am sad, they are my source of comfort. There isn’t anything I wouldn’t do for them. Sometimes I would rather be around them then people.
Fast forward I moved back to Atlanta last April, transferred back with the company I was working for. Also was back with the boyfriend, but from a distance. He was doing a job that always kept him away from Atlanta a lot. And his job is dangerous and now it’s been a month and a half and has not heard anything from him. So don’t know if he is alive or dead. So have so much for one person to handle. But I am doing it and will continue. It has been a struggle to catch up since moving back. I got a very good job in October and I was just starting to get back on my feet and caught up. Then this past Friday out of the blue I lost this really good job. And then Saturday Harley got sick. The worst timing in the world, but is there really ever a good time. He was close to death by this morning, Monday when I brought him in. He was in such bad shape so fast. I couldn’t lose him. I was so scared because financially it isn’t feasible. He is my family right now and all I have. After what happened with the job just last Friday I couldn’t lose Harley at the same time. It would just be unbearable. He has so much more life in him. And his buddies need him and love him. As do I, it’s just very bad timing. It will put me behind again and in a bind. But I would do it all over again for my babies. "
