With a twinkle in her eye, and a Ho-Ho-Ho, Stephanie Gillis, Alley Cat Advocates Cat Care Coordinator checks in another lucky community cat.
Our work doesn’t stop. This week we’re giving 169 community cats the best holiday gift. They are scheduled for spay or neuter, vaccinations and the best veterinary care!
Because of YOU, we have spayed or neutered thousands of community cats this year. Thank you for your support. We wish you happy holidays!
When Ms. Kitty arrived at Alley Cat Advocates for her spay appointment last month, we asked the caretaker if she was having any other medical issues. This is a routine question, because for most community cats, this appointment is likely the only vet visit they will ever have.
Her caretaker reported that she appeared to be in pain, barely able to walk, and was suffering from an upper respiratory infection. After the spay procedure, she got the antibiotics she needed and her breathing improved. Unfortunately, x-rays and blood tests showed that her joints were severely inflamed and infected, a condition called polyarthritis.
With the right diagnosis, treatment and medication, Ms. Kitty is healing and able to get around again. Ms. Kitty, and all of the cats that come to us for spay/neuter, receive the gold standard of care at Alley Cat Advocates. We believe that community cats deserve the same compassion and medical care that we would provide for our own pets.
Unfortunately, this additional care comes at a cost. In Ms. Kitty’s case, the veterinarian bill for exams, x-rays, blood tests and medications was more than $250.
Please consider making a gift in Ms. Kitty’s name to help us to continue to provide our community cats with the highest standard of care. Thank you for your support!
Prince Charming found his way to Alley Cat Advocates for neuter surgery. During his exam the vet team found that this shy, sweet boy had serious and painful dental problems.
Prince Charming’s teeth were cleaned, many decayed teeth were removed, and he was neutered.
His oral surgery hasn’t detered him from being a great eater and enjoying his treats. But, there was something Prince Charming wanted more than food – love.
This large cat with a scarred face wanted what most cats do, someone to take the time to get to know him. He may look tough but he just needed some attention. His Alley Cat Advocates foster mom was able to get through his defenses while fostering him and learn that he is really just a shoulder cat. “All he wants is love,” she said, at our volunteer update meeting.
Once he recovers, Prince Charming will be taken to the Kentucky Humane Society to be placed up for adotpion.
When an unaltered cat comes to Alley Cat Advocates in need of medical care beyond spay/neuter, we provide the the gold standard of care. Please make a gift today in honor of Prince Charming to help us provide the gold standard of care for Prince Charming and other community cats in need. Thank you!
