Troubling Thoughts Today

My human received a letter from Food Stamps stating that her renewal has been denied because she had too much money in the bank.  That’s a big fat lie.  She does not.  She has started the appeal process and stated not once but twice to the person she talked to that what little she has left in her bank account is not going to last very long without food stamps.  Prayers, good thoughts and some sound advice are very welcome at this point.

    Many years ago I was in a position to need food stamps but couldn’t have them for several reasons……….I relied instead on the kindness of the food pantries in two or three of my local churches. But in YOUR case, the powers that be are making their “call” on incorrect information so you should be able to appeal that and I hope you WIN.

    Oh Ali weez so sowry. Mommy just got a letter dat she was gettin’ a cut. It happens every October so she be used to it. Altho’ we weally fawt $10.00 was da minimum, pawently not. They must have changed da law again, cus stawrtin’ next mumff mommy’s back down to $7.00. So weez not got much advice sep dat maybe yous mommy shuldn’t keep hers money in da bank. Every payday mommy wuld go to da bank and wiffdraw everyfin’ but da rent and those bills due wiffin’ a kupple days. She twied to pay cash fur everyfin’ she kuld. Course da gween papers awe always gone afur da end of da mumff cuz once she pays da bills and buys what we need there’s nuffin’ left. She twies to make sure she has 10 cents left in da bank every mumff, but dat’s not always pawssible. At least she can keep gettin’ ’em while hers appeal be goin’ on, and maybe she can make ’em unnewstand dat money be gone fur bills alweady. And yous mommy shuld be sure and gather up da last 3 mumffs of medical bills and all udder bills and expenses when she goes in fur hers appeal. Weez sendin’ purrayers.

    Luv ya’

    Ali and mom sending lots of purrs and prayers your way. Looks like Sammy’s and Dezi’s mom are giving you some sound advice. Dezi’s mom has a good handle on how to deal with her funds in her bank account. My mom worked with people on Medicaid and Food Stamps for the last 27 years in New York and what Dezi’s mom does is what almost all people in this situation due. While your waiting for your hearing file a new Food Stamps application right away. Keep in mind the advice you’ve been given by the above moms.

    We send our purrs and prayer and are hissing mad at these fools. What do they think people live on. There is some good advice in those words before us.

    Thank you all for your kind advice and good thoughts. Had a phone call today about the appeal and will not continue to appeal. I will however, re apply when my bank balance is at the required level.
