For those of you who know me, you know that I’ve been living in China for over two years. Living abroad is fun and exciting, but it can also be a bit overwhelming and lonely at times.
That’s where Thor and Sif come in.
Thor (1 year) and Sif (6 months) have been my furry little buddies for a while now. They mean the world to me and their cuddles, love and distractions they offer have helped me immensely during the time I’ve had them. They are my babies, and I love them dearly.
And I’d like to take them back home with me.
After being here for more than two years, I’ve decided that it’s time for me to head back home. But I can’t imagine life back in the USA without my furry babies. There are restrictions on carrying pets on International flights from China to America, as well as concerns for Thor and Sif’s health and wellbeing if they were being checked (on one 11-14 hour flight, plus two additional flights). So I’ve decided to go with a pet relocation service that deals specifically with taking animals from one country to another, and that keep a close eye on the animals and their health the whole way.
The problem? This is not exactly going to be cheap.
I’m checking with different relocation companies, but so far the price is going to be roughly between $1500-2000 per cat (since I’m traveling across the world). I’m going to have a lot of expenses since I’ve decided to go back home, and I could use any help anyone is willing to give. I’ve had a few friends who have asked for my Chinese address, hoping to send me a care package of Reese’s peanut butter cups or something similar for Christmas… and as much as I appreciate it, I would much prefer being able to get my kitties back home with me.
Those who have pets know just how they work their ways into our lives and hearts, so any help is much appreciated. Thank you!
Of course, it’s important to remember that worker’s council’s don’t ‘belong’ to any one political tradition, they arise naturally and spontaneously - they’re a proletarian thing, not a marxist or an anarchist thing.
I hate when people try to devalue Mandela’s character by bringing up how he helped the militant opposition against apartheid. WHAT, BECAUSE THE FUCKING VIOLENCE AGAINST SOUTH AFRICANS WAS OKAY? FUCKING LISTEN TO YOURSELF. YOU ARE LITERALLY CRYING ABOUT THE LIVES OF WHITE SOUTH AFRICANS WHO BUILT THEIR WEALTH ON THE SUFFERING OF NON-WHITES. PEOPLE WJO WOULD’VE RATHER SEEN POC DIE THAN END APARTHEID. HOW THE FUCK ELSE DO YOU DEAL WITH THAT KIND OF SCUM.
