The Story of Clyde- A Cat in Need

$10,000 goal

Campaign created 10 months ago
Let me introduce you to a cat we named Clyde.  We have been looking for his owner for a couple of weeks now, but no one has come forward.  He has been listed on The Cat Connection "Found Cats" and Animal Control pages.  This little guy is a sweet, older cat that we think may have belonged to an older person that died, and the family or landlord put him on the street, or maybe someone that knew he needed medical attention and could not afford to give it to him.  He showed up at a  house off of Felton St.  He was on the porch for at least several weeks, maybe a month or more, crying and trying to get in the house.  He would not leave the porch, and he was upsetting the colony cats that live there. 

Luckily for Clyde, the owner  took him in, and the TCC made a vet appointment for him in November.  We had him scanned for a chip, and he had none.  He was already neutered.  They estimated his age around 14, but we think he may be slightly younger.  The vet said he needed  a lot of dental work.  He had some teeth already missing, and the remaining teeth were in pretty bad shape.  He is underweight most likely because he hadn’t been eating very much, but his coat is nice, not like that of an older cat.  Other than the teeth, he is in good health. 

Clyde has had numerous follow-up visits including receiving a Convenia shot in case of any infection  and some Buprenorphine SR to ease his pain.   He is at his foster/recovery home now.

Clyde is just one cat at the Cat Connection whose life has changed dramatically as a result of generous donations to the Cat Connection.  Dental work is very expensive!  For example, did you know that dental work costs a minimum of $400-$600 for one tooth extraction?  And that is just for one cat.

All of the funds raised for this campaign will be used to continue Clyde's treatment and the other cats currently being cared at the TCC.  Thank you in advance.
