About the Campaign

Poor Missy has Stomatitis

This condition requires removal of all her teeth

It is painful to eat, and this condition will get worse and become life threatening. It can get so painful that the cat cannot eat! Missy was just rescued from the shelter in March of this year. Glenn, her owner,  is disabled and lives alone, and his friend got him Missy from the shelter to be a companion.

Then in May, Missy started drooling, all the time. Glenn took her to the emergency vet who then referred him to a regular vet clinic. In the end Glenn, whose income is only $780 a month from disability, spent over $500 on Missy. She has stomatitis, a condition where the gums become inflamed and painful. It gets so bad the cat can barely eat, and cannot clean itself.

Glenn has to get Missy to a specialist, which is more than 80 miles from where he lives (and he does not drive). He has an estimate from his vet that it will be about $3000, but has not gotten an official estimate from the specialist yet.

A previous fundraiser to fund treatment while surgery is arranged for Missy was SUCCESSFUL! That is amazing, and very helpful for her! Now she needs to have the surgery!

We apologize for the poor photos, but Glenn does not have a good camera/phone and due to his disability has trouble getting Missy in a good position for a photo. All donations are for Missy, and will go only to her care. The vet has not provided an estimate because Glenn lives far away, and doesn’t drive himself. So the surgery has been arranged with the specialist by phone. For this reason they will not provide a written estimate, but they have told us it will be about $3000 to $3500, which is typical for this procedure.

    Hi everybody, update: found a vet about 25 minutes from home. Missy has an appointment on August 5th. Missy will have blood work and everything. To get ready to have her teeth removed or a course of action to help her.
    I was going to my doctor for myself. And there was an animal hospital across the street. I called, and they said they wasn’t taking any new clients. A lady in the doctor’s office waiting room. Heard what I was saying on the phone to the Animal Hospital. And she said that she had a cat that had all her teeth taken out by the doctor in that Animal Hospital. And she would call the doctor and get a favor from her, to see my Missy. So that’s why I have the appointment on August 5th she will see Missy. The doctor has over 20 years experience, as a veterinarian. I hope I’m not too late. To get Missy help. Missy has gained weight; she’s now 12.6 lb. I still give her steroids and pain medicine everyday.

    Update today I called the transportation company, to make sure I got a ride on August 5th. And they said it was picked up by Ruby’s and sons Car Service. To bring me to the veterinarian office with Missy. Reason why I called a lot of times, the transportation company that I call, has a lot of incompetent people working for them, and they will call a day ahead of time and say Ruby and sons can’t take me. It happened a couple times. But that’s not true Ruby and sons has scheduled it. See what b.s you have to put up with in life.
