Vlad has a rare disease and needs help!

$540 of $3,000 goal

This little cat is Vlad. He has been living a hard life in the woods for 3 years as a feral cat.
Vlad has been placed under the care of a rescue - “Animal Lifeline Inc” of NJ.

http://www.animallifeline.org

Vlad has a rare disease called “feline multiple epulides”.  This disease causes benign tumors to grow in his mouth, and these tumors are growing so large that they affect his ability to eat, are pushing his teeth out of alignment, and cause his tongue to protrude from his mouth. Vlad needs a veterinary dental specialist to surgically remove the tumors and the “root” of these tumors from deep in the tooth socket, so that the tumors do not return. The total cost of the procedure is estimated to be 3000 dollars. 
Vlad has recently become friendly to his me (his foster mom) and has been brought indoors to live a comfortable life.  He is 3 years old, FIV/FeLV negative, and healthy. Vlad finally has a chance to have a good life - warm, safe,  well fed, and free from mouth pain. He has asked us for help. Please help us give it to him.

Vlad is feeling much better now that he has had some time to recover from his surgery. He is a very happy cat! Dr. Reiter and Dr. Castejon of the University of Penn dental department did a wonderful job with his surgery and care, and have been very kind and compassionate! Vlad has a follow-up appt on Feb 11. I will post a video of the new happier Vlad in the next couple days. Please continue to share so that Animal Lifeline can pay off the rest of the bill for this surgery. Or donations can be made to Animal Lifeline directly at http://www.animallifeline.org
Thank you all! You have helped make Vlad a very happy kitty! ❤️
