Besides the physical challenges, Frederick struggles to pay for everything — but she always finds a way to make it work. She gets donations, borrows money from her father and uses her own money to pay for the cats’ care.
“I take out money to pay for the medication for my heart, but besides that, I don’t buy anything,” Frederick said. “I don’t do anything and I don’t go anywhere. I cut my own hair because I don’t have the money to — I could spend the money to do those kinds of things, but then I wouldn’t have money to have cat food.”
