When Compassion Meets Financial Hardship: The Challenges Facing Mellyna Putri and her Rescue Cats

In a world where money makes the world go round, it is challenging to balance compassion with financial hardships. This is especially true for Mellyna Putri, who has taken on the responsibility of caring for multiple cats amidst her own economic struggles. While many people may view pets as an unnecessary expense, Mellyna sees them as beloved family members who deserve love and care regardless of their financial situation. In this blog post, we will explore the challenges which Mellyna faces daily and how she manages to provide compassionate care for her rescue cats.

Mellyna Putri and her Rescue Cats

Mellyna Putri, a woman originally from the beautiful city of Medan in North Sumatra, Indonesia, is in urgent need of financial assistance to pay her veterinary bills. Sadly, due to the lack of funds, she has been unable to rescue more cats and many of her rescue cats have already lost their lives due to her inability to treat them. It is our moral obligation as a society to help her out and save these innocent creatures from suffering and death.

Mellyna has not always been passionate about cats. In 2016, she took a big step towards helping cats in need by taking in a pregnant mother cat with an injured leg. Despite not being a fan of cats, she found herself in a situation where she had to assist the pregnant cat in giving birth. With the help of an instructional guide on YouTube, she was able to easily cut the umbilical cord of the newborn kitten. This experience served as an unexpected turning point for her and soon enough, she started to develop an attachment to the precious little creatures. In time, this led her to make a surprising realization: that perhaps cats were not so bad after all! Since then, she has dedicated her life to rescuing cats and finding them loving homes. Her ex-husband was also initially very supportive of her efforts and together they had made a big difference in the lives of many cats.

As time went on, Mellyna's ex-husband kept bringing in more and more cats, eventually leading to a staggering number of 20 cats, all of which were treated like their own children. However, when 2022 came around, Mellyna made the difficult decision to separate from her husband and he no longer wanted to take care of the beloved furry babies.
