The Story

Betty was living at an industrial site with many other cats when I discovered the colony last year. I was able to rescue two litters of kittens and TNR five females. Betty was one of the females spayed and returned. A few weeks later, while feeding, she ran up to me and wanted to be patted. When the same thing happened again, I realized that with winter approaching, I needed to rescue her.

I was able to pick her and put her in a carrier. Once I got her home, she came out of the carrier and sat in my lap. Since then, she’s been nothing but happy, playing, and sleeping in a warm bed for the first time in her life.

Betty is a young cat, just under two years old, but she suffers from a painful condition called stomatitis, and in order to provide her relief, she needs to have many and possibly all her teeth extracted. It’s not a simple procedure and it’s very expensive, it will cost between $1500 and $2500 for her surgery.

I’m asking for your help, Betty is a wonderful cat and has a great life to look forward to, but she needs to have this done in order to not live in pain.

When I rescued her I certainly didn’t expect this so any donation you could make would be greatly appreciated.  Just a bit about me, I've been feeding feral cats, doing TNR and rescuing for almost 7 years now and have helped hundreds of cats.  You can see more about what I do on my blog http://cherrystreetcats.blogspot.ca/

Just another happy update on Betty, she had her recheck last week and her mouth has healed up well, thanks to the amazing Dr French at the VEC all those teeth removed and no antibiotics needed!  We are hoping that the extractions will keep the stomatitis at bay and Betty will have a long happy healthy life with us.  I thank you all again profoundly for helping Betty, and turning her life around.

After having all but her canine teeth removed and spending the night at the vet's, Betty is happily at home, and acting like nothing ever happened.  Betty survived the last two winters outside so this was probably nothing in comparison.  She's overjoyed to be safe and warm and loved.  Thank you all again for your support!

I dropped Betty off this morning for her surgery, thank you all for helping her!  The interferon and COQ10 has helped a bit so hopefully she will be able to at least keep her canines.  Please send positive energy out to Betty!  I'll update more later!
