About the Campaign

Ms. Sassy has Stomatitis!

This is a disease where the gums inflame and it can become too painful to eat. The causes are not really known, and you can read more about Stomatitis in cats HERE (it also happens, rarely, in people).

Little Sassy is a rescue cat, who came onto Roberta’s property as a kitten nearly nine years ago. Roberta lives in a mobile home in the San Bernardino area, east of Los Angeles, and rescues/fosters stray cats in the neighborhood. It was about a year ago that after taking Sassy to the groomer, her hair grows really long, the groomer noticed swelling in her mouth, and Roberta had Sassy checked out at the vet.

At first the vet treated Sassy with antibiotics and steroids, but recently she seemed to be getting worse. After another groomer visit, once shaved down, it was obvious she was losing weight, and too skinny. Now the doctor wants to do surgery. Really the only solution for Stomatitis is to remove all the teeth and treat the gums, so it is not cheap to do. The good news is that this treatment usually works to end the pain, and effectively end the problem, and house cats will do just fine with no teeth.

Roberta and her husband are in their 70’s and on a fixed income, so the cost of the surgery is not in their budget. Sassy needs all of us to come together and donate a little, so she can have her surgery. Can you help Sassy with a donation todday?
