About the Campaign
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 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!”
