About Lou Lou
We at PPCR continually struggle to understand how people can just desert a cat. In all likelihood we will probably never understand. But that was exactly what happened: Lou Lou was abandoned. She had been surviving outside on her own and her health was rapidly declining. A kindly neighbor was able to bring her to a VCA Vet Clinic that contracts with the Local Animal Services in the area.
VCA did blood work, gave her fluids, put her on antibiotics and informed Animal Services that Lou Lou had a mass in her upper right mouth that could be an infection due to stage 3 periodontal disease or it could be a benign or a cancerous mass.
We decided to help this girl out and give her another chance at life. We’re glad we did. While in foster care, Lou Lou has been gaining weight, displaying perfect litter box habits, and is feeling so good that she’s letting it be known when she wants to eat or just needs a little attention. She follows her foster mom around the house, sleeps on her bed, and just relaxes in front of the window. She also loves carrying on a conversation with anyone that will listen. We can just imagine the stories she is telling us. She is a very sweet and grateful kitty. We currently have her on an antibiotic and pain medication to help her stay comfortable until we can do the dental work.
The basic facts are this: When older cats find themselves in a rescue, or a shelter, it really is their last chance for love. Competing against cute kittens and colorful young adult cats can be difficult when you’re in the sunset years, but this doesn’t mean that older cats deserve to be ignored. We need your help for Lou Lou. The estimated cost of the dental work and the initial appointment is ~$1,100. This estimate does not include any unknown discoveries (such as the mass being some kind of tumor). We think Lou Lou is a “young” 11 years old and is worth the effort! Please find it in your heart to help! Lou Lou appreciates any help you can send and sends you a huge thank you!
