Lucy’s Surgery

This is the story of a little kitty named Lucy.  Lucy was three years old and rescued from a high kill shelter by a nonprofit organization that saves all kinds of animals but mostly cats. We fell in love with her timid but loving personality and adopted her three days before Christmas, but we weren’t ready for what would happen in the next few weeks and months. Lucy had very bad breath and always seemed lethargic and when we took her to the vet we received heart breaking news. Lucy’s little kitty mouth was a war zone and she would need surgery to remove all of her teeth that would include a specialist and an all day procedure. The sad thing is, this organization had her up for adoption with medical notes that stated she needed “at home dental care” when our vet took one look in her mouth and immediately said this cat was in pain. How could these people leave this kitty in a cage in all this pain and not see it when they are suppose to be saving them.... She had a raging infection in her mouth, made worse by stomatitis so she needs all her teeth removed by a specialist. If we can't afford it we may have to put her down. She is having persistent diarrhea, potential ear, eye, and skin allergies that if they can't be controlled by food will require lifelong steroids to treat. She also got giardia from improper isolation of an infected cat at the rescue. All of this went unnoticed in their care, including by their vet. This little kitty has stolen every heart she has ever touched and we love her and want to see her live the life she deserves. We need your help, please.
