Save Catfish's house

Do you know this man? Has "Catfish" given you a cigarette, or fed you, or even let you stay at his house? Many of you know John "Catfish" Mcnees who lives on the tree streets. Many of you know, that despite everything that life hands this man, he keeps on smiling, he keeps on giving, and he keeps on keeping on. Well now Catfish is in trouble and he needs your help! He has fallen a few years behind on his property tax and his house on the tree streets(the only thing the man has besides a smile and jazzy scooter) is at risk of being sold out from under him. Please help catfish get caught up on taxes and get some repairs taken care of, so he can continue to be one of the best parts of the tree streets community for many more years to come.
