Oh, People. Did I Not tell all of you to Not Contact Animal Control? Because we’ve just had a visitor who came to check on us! Good Grief!

A welfare check is a check conducted by officers to determine the safety of people and animals. Chris, Barbara, and the Chandler Cats have been subjects of welfare checks.

Catalysts

Exaggerating health issues while begging for money and Chris's history of ineptitude towards his pets are frequent catalysts for both concerned fans and weens alike to request welfare checks.

One of the first welfare checks requested for the Chandlers came about from Donations Required, Serious. Please help, a June 2016 begging video in which Barbara and Chris exaggerate an emergency by claiming they need money for Barbara's asthma medicine and stage the scene to imply that Barbara's health is in imminent danger without the medicine. A concerned fan requested a welfare check, and the officer replied stating that he had spoken with Barbara over the phone and that everything was okay.[2] Despite that episode, the Chandlers continued to make several more begging videos over the years in which Barbara exaggerates her health issues for more money.
