I had to share this story with some people who could understand and maybe even help.
My boyfriend and I are toying with the idea of getting a pet. We went to the ASPCA yesterday to look at the puppies And cats. I accidentally fell in love with a beautiful cat named Cupcake. I say accidentally because I don’t really live in a pet-friendly building and I’m allergic!
As soon as I stepped into the room, Cupcake started calling to us and she was so playful and friendly. She is an amazing animal! the woman that took us around told me that Cupcake had IBS. Because of that, she is now on steroids and will always be on a special prescription diet. This diet is a little more expensive than regular food which has turned a lot of people off of adopting her.
This just broke my heart and I can’t stop thinking about her! I hate the thought of such an amazing animal being without a home because she’s sick. It makes me think what if nobody wanted me because my Remicade is expensive!
I wish I could adopt Cupcake but my allergies are a lot worse than I thought . If there’s anybody in the NYC area looking for a gorgeous cat that needs to be taken care of, Cupcake is looking for a home!
I was diagnosed with UC when I was 14. Im currently living in NYC, in remission thanks to 40 or so doses of Remicade (it is amazing).
