Mom woke up this morning and told us all to make the best of it here. She told us that now that we haven't sold the house and it is beginning to become obvious that we are not going to get lucky then all of our lives are going to change drastically. Today she has not one cent to buy anything. The car is without gas. In an emergency she can't even get us to a vet or herself to a doctor. Now things are really bad. People are weary of our problems and those that empathise have done and are doing all they can. Those that could helped in a more substantial way never did and  have forgotten about us long ago. Their situation is a bit like the natural disaster here that started a long chain of events. People reacted at the time but now it's long forgotten globally. A few kind people always remember us but not enough of them. Mom and Dad are hardly eating, They cancelled medical insurance weeks ago and have only spent on us. We love our mom. She is a good mom. She makes us better when we are ill. She wipes our tears when we cry and she cleans up if  we make a mess. She never complains or blames us. We want to help but we don't know what to do! They never managed even to sell the freezer. Mom says it will be a very bad week. We are going on a radio show in September but mom says we will be lucky to survive that long. As each week passes things get worse. We have now approached many animal loving celebrities with no luck. There are still 14 vaccinations to do. Cassie has conjunctivitis. A kind lady in Rio has some food for us but we don't even have the money to travel there its an hour and a half away. I worry that all this will kill my mom in the end. She can't take much more.  Guga's ultra sound money is safe his auntie Chandra helped.  On bad days I hear her say she just wants to lay in a corner and die. On good days she gets angry and sad alternately. She has saved so many of us why can't someone save her and if she is saved then so are we. She can't sleep. She has lost a lot of weight and feels like the weight of the entire world is on her back. It is!  We hope she doesn't drop under the pressure of it all.
