One lady is on a quest to save as many stray and wild cats as she can just north of Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Carmen Morales Weinberg, the creator of Animal Friends Project, devotes her days, evenings, and any spare time to these abandoned cats.
That goes for every dime she has in her pockets. There are always cats in need of her attention in the Sunshine State, which has a year-round “kitten season.”
They emerge one after the other, each with its own set of problems. Ringworm, mange, blindness, malnutrition, maltreatment, and, of course, flea infestations are all too frequent. Carmen does not turn her back on any of them!
It’s draining, thankless, costly, and heartbreaking work. It can, however, be tremendously fulfilling, inspiring, and heartwarming, which is why she does it.
Every second is worth it, as one of her most recent changes from mange-crusted cat to attractive ginger stud demonstrates.
Despite the large number of sad animals in her care/organization, Carmen couldn’t say no to his condition. She began raising donations, knowing that giving this animal a chance would not be inexpensive.
Animal Friends Project, like many other 501(c)(3) organizations, is entirely reliant on donations to fulfill its life-saving goal.
Fortunately, assisting cats in overcoming terrible mange is a free service, which I am now able to give to this youngster. He arrived at the home of a lady who was able to call us for help.
When Carmen arrived at the residence, she easily spotted the suffering cat. He began crying loudly, pleading for someone to help him.
Reacting to Carmen’s voice, he approached her with one of the worst cases of mange that she’d seen. The defeated tone to his meow could actually be seen in his posture.
Carmen placed the cage cautiously, unsure of how he would respond to being caged. She didn’t want to startle the cat and cause him to get into further mischief. She snatched a can of cat food from the shelf and popped the cap.
