My story

Katie is a senior cat who was left on our doorstep in a box about 2 years ago. Her face was all inflamed with horrible allergic reactions. She was adopted by a woman who wanted a front declawed cat, but the woman was on fixed income and her adult children would not let the woman buy the expensive food she needed, so she was returned. Since then, she has been seen by the vet numerous times- she is currently on hypo-allergenic food. She takes an allergy pill twice a day, unless she has to go in for a steroid injection to keep her from scratching herself. A home for Katie should be ready to make a financial commitment to keeping her healthy and happy.
