donate to cat money
hey! i’m catherine monetizeyourcat, a radical trans lesbian whose online presence people seem to feel pretty strongly about. i’m sort of broke and struggling and need help.
me and my partner of 8 years are separating. we’re still on good terms and we’re neither of us thrilled with the situation, but honestly we’re both better off moving away from the relationship we had. it stopped being great for either of us emotionally a while ago.
here’s the thing: that separation can’t involve me staying here. we kind of tried that and it just didn’t work. for a variety of reasons i need to move. the tricky part of that is that we don’t really have money. we’d barely have enough to move both of us, and moving one of us requires us both to replace shared things and have money on hand to take care of unexpected challenges.
spouse has enough money to cover that on their end, but i don’t. i have $19; i’m not confident i’ll be able to eat in seattle, let alone replace vital things like my desk and chair, pay for medication, or take public transit.
i have friends who often help me with things like this, and their generosity is the only reason i’m still alive right now, but their resources are limited and getting me out of the situation i’m currently in has taken most of what they have. i’m safe, but only just.
i will be launching a patreon later, along with a number of new sale items, to help stabilize my situation further - a lump sum is only going to go so far, i need a stable income and the only work i’m good at is shit for that. but for right now, i am probably going to be able to spend every cent that comes into my hands on making my life less of a medical, social, and emotional disaster. quinn, my spouse’s gf and a dear friend of mine, has agreed to help handle the money with her paypal account, so i’m going to ask you send donations to her in my name.
it would mean a lot to me if you could donate whatever you can to keep me afloat, and maybe signal boost whether or not you can donate.
