Help Me Keep My Cats

Hi! Thank you so much for reading.

My husband is in the military and unfortunately he recently recieved orders to Spain. We had no plans to move; we've been at the same duty station for years with no sign we'd have to leave. But of course if the military says go, there's little choice but to go.

The problem is my cats. I've rescued five cats from bad circumstances and they are the center of my world. They are my support, my friends, my heart and I can't imagine being without them. We are allowed five animals on the plane with us...four of my cats and my husband's dog. That leaves one cat behind.

I am mentally and chronically ill and my cats have helped me in so many ways. If I could raise the money, I could find a company that ships pets overseas so all of my cats could come with me. I've gotten estimates between [phone redacted]$ as far as dollar amount is concerned and with all the other moving costs, it's hard to find a way to budget the money. 

I know some people think they're only cats but they're my family and if I can keep us all together, it would make everything so much better.

Thank you again for reading
