About the Campaign

What is Wrong with JJ

JJ has an infection with a lot of swelling in his mouth  & several times a day it causes him to open his mouth in an odd way, as though he is trying to move something out of his mouth.

Upon examination by Dr. Gray at Limehouse Veterinary Clinic in Glendale, diagnosed that JJ has some rotted teeth & loose teeth, and advanced gingivitis. He does appear to be in pain. He will need several extractions of small and larger teeth along with a teeth cleaning and a new course of antibiotic therapy to get his mouth back in shape.

Short term, JJ received a long acting Convenia antibiotic injection to lessen swelling and  abate some of the bacterial infection. Additionally, when he went in for his exam the doc noticed a lump on his neck that needs to be removed when under anesthesia and biopsied.

JJ’s story

JJ’s new mom rescued him and wrote this story about him:

“JJ is a very sweet short hair tuxedo cat, approximately 5-6 years. He wandered into my life a few months ago, showing up on the porch/front door every day and has claimed me as his forever! Since receiving daily feedings he’s gained weight so that his bones don’t stick out anymore.. He was very skittish at first, but has become a lot less so, and he’s more friendly to my two girl kitties who watch him from inside the house. They even share the porch with him from time to time. He is now the porch security, always there to greet in the morning and in the evening, and at times in between!”

    Thank you for those who have donated to JJ’s medical bills. While we wait for more funding to come in, I wanted to let you know that the continues to come around for food and lovin’… and now has a healthy winter coat coming in. His mouth is still a huge issue, and he has trouble eating… but at least he knows where the food is!

    Of course, all of the neighborhood critters know where the food is now… so it’s becoming a bit challenging — but adjustments have been made and I sit with him while he eats, so I know he’s getting the food left out for him. I find him in the morning, snuggled in the cat carrier and he comes running out when he hears the front door open.

    Anyway, that’s the update for now! Donations can be made thru December, so if you’re looking for a place to give this holiday season… JJ would appreciate it very much.

    JJ UPDATE:

    Thank you all for donating to JJ’s cause. He had his surgeries with much success on Jan 3rd.
    *Only 3 teeth pulled (they anticipated 5)
    *Lump on his neck was just scar tissue
    *Neuter went well
    *Eating nonstop and gaining weight

    He’s been adjusting to indoor life and healing in the process. He is anxious to get back outside and hang with his friends… today (Fri, 1/18) is the day. This morning, I opened the front door and he smelled clean, fresh air in the first time in 3 weeks. He didn’t go far, just to the side porch where he had been hanging out for months — and just enjoyed the sunshine (and freedom). My porch security has returned to his post.

    He has a happy and healthy life ahead… all thanks to you.

    God Bless!
