⭐️ UPDATE!! ⭐️
An update on the apartment situation from @rexiecat:
So many things have happened in the last 3 weeks, and it's been really stressful and emotional. The bad news is that something happened with the apartment we were going to get (it's a long, frustrating story). We were able to find another place quickly, thankfully, that was about the same cost. But now, sadly, it's only available at the end of next year because it just started being constructed now!! This is very discouraging and saddening for my sister and me because we have to wait so long now. And for me, it's super uncomfortable to stay at my friend's place all this time, and now this extra time too when I was supposed to leave at the end of this month. Thankfully, she's letting us stay longer now. But I don't like that I have to have Rexie locked up for several hours when I'm at work because the condition of my friend's place is not safe for him to roam free.
I feel bad that we made the fundraising campaign an urgent thing. But at that time a few weeks ago when we started the campaign, it really was. I thought that Rexie and I were going to be homeless and we really had no where to go! The good news is that my sister managed to convince our parents to take out a mortgage for us (because my sister and I cannot with our low incomes), as long as we pay them every month. The money that you donated is going to help us tremendously, you have no idea!! We can now make a down payment because of you and your generosity, which we couldn't before. And the bank has approved the loan through my parents, so with everyone's help, we can make it work and have a place to live!!
I wanted to make sure you all knew exactly what was happening because we want everything to be transparent so you know where your donation is going. We will post updates and pictures (invoices, documents, etc.) for reassurance and proof. It's unfortunate this all couldn't be more straight forward for us, but in the end, the apartment we're now getting is slightly better than the last, and will be so much better for Rexie. Your help means so much to us, and this is all happening because of you! Thank you!
