Poor Speedy was about to go to the slaughterhouse!
Tigger is an 8 year old cat, who had to fight to survive outside. Unfortunately, he lost an eye and got a big wound on his cheek. Since he can't see very well now, he is even more vulnerable. Finding food or shelter is not easy for him!
Having canned food every day would allow Tigger not to put himself in danger to find food on his own. He would have enough protein to resist the difficult conditions of life outside.
Between the kittens about to arrive and the fifty or so free cats to feed, the food needs are there. But the in store collections do not follow and the financial difficulties are piling up... We will not be able to hold forever like this!
