About the Campaign

Belle rubs her mouth after eating…

The pain is really bad. The doctor says he believes her condition has been developing for over a year, and has now reached a stage where it is so painful to eat, that she may stop eating.

Stomatitis in cats is a condition where the gums become so inflamed that all the teeth have to be removed. It is not fully understood, and once it develops there is no effective treatment other than dental surgery to remove the teeth. The good news is that most cats do just fine with no teeth and can still have a happy and healthy life.

Belle is just 6 years-old, so this surgery should be a real benefit to her! Her owner Roberta adopted her as a kitten. Roberta cares for a collection of outdoor cats, and does TNR (trap, neuter, release) on them too. Belle was a kitten of one of these cats, that developed an eye infection when a kitten. Roberta took her to the vet for treatment at that time, and ended up taking Belle into her home.

Roberta is 74 years-0ld and on social security. Though she has enough money for basic care, the $1000 bill for this dental surgery is beyond her means! Let’s help her get Belle the surgery Belle needs to have a long, happy life free of pain!

    My cat is experiencing the same situation with periodontal disease. Hope he gets what is needed for treatment.
