About the Campaign

Pretty kitty, Pretty Boy, is in pain… 

He likes to hide, and can get very grumpy when he has to take photos, as we found out!

Pretty Boy is not happy:

Pretty Boy comes from an animal lover and nice man named John. He fed feral cats in his neighborhood, and took some of the friendlier ones in, and one of those was Pretty Boy. John passed away earlier this year, and his pets were adopted out to a number of people, his good friend Maria took in Pretty Boy.

He had been a friendly cat, but when Maria saw him he was much more grumpy. He appears to have a swollen eye, and his teeth clearly hurt. His tongue hangs out, and he has trouble eating… he won’t even touch dry food now.

OK, so simple: Maria needs to take him to the vet. She did. They need to do a number of tests, and he needs dental surgery. The problem is that Maria is 80 and on a small fixed income. She can’t afford it.

Donations are for Pretty Boy, and are paid only to his vet, not to Maria (or anyone else). Pretty Boy needs a full blood test, all his vaccines, and some x-rays. Then he will need dental surgery.

    This poor baby is suffering and can be helped. I feel that the estimate for his dental care is reasonable, especially for California. He is still a young cat that was dearly loved. Every small donation will help.

    I have a sweet orange kitty who was also essentially feral before I rescued him. I would hope someone would donate to him if he ever needed care.

    Thank you for taking in and caring for Pretty Boy, Maria! It sounds like he has had a rough time losing his person and being in pain on top of it. I hope that this will take care of what he needs and that his bad days are behind him and he gets well soon!

    I used to feed feral cats in Pasadena California & I understand about taking in the friendlier ones. I’m so sad & sorry his owner passed away. I don’t have a lot of money I’m on a fixed income but I usually find 1or 2 animals a month & donate what I can. Get well soon prettyboy
