Smokey and Harry are some of the sweetest cats you’ll ever meet, but they faced an uncertain future when their owner died and they were surrendered to a local animal control. Luckily, we stepped up to bring these gentle boys into our rescue. Both cats are elderly, black, and in need of medical care, all factors that make finding a home for them more difficult.
Smokey is morbidly obese, weighing in at 23 pounds. It’s nearly impossible for him to clean himself and he snorts when he breathes due to a growth in his throat that needed to be biopsied and checked for cancer. His brother Harry is slim in comparison at 14 pounds, but has horrible dental disease, described by the vet who saw him as some of the worst she’s ever seen. He’s in terrible pain when he eats and needed a full dental with multiple tooth extractions.
These boys saw our vet yesterday for their dentals and biopsy and their visit cost us $813. With follow-up visits we are expecting their expenses to go over $1000. We've been hit with a lot of large expenses for animals recently and we are hoping that our awesome supporters will help out with their care. Any donations are greatly appreciated.
