Hello, my name is Butterscotch and boy do I have a story to tell. I am about 10 years old and for a long time I had been just one of those strays, wandering the streets alone and lost. Fortunately a kind person found me and called CARE to see if they could help. Well I am now feeling really lucky to be in foster care and let me tell you I am so relieved and happy to have someone to love and care for me. When I first came in, I was underweight and loaded with fleas and parasites. The vet says I have anemia, dental issues and a heart murmur. My foster family was sad to think of all the weeks and possibly months I had been left to fend for myself and struggle through these health problems. Although I was in a lot of pain and discomfort, I am the sweetest, most gentle little cat you could wish to meet.
I am now on antibiotics and CARE will do a blood test for me in a few weeks to see if my teeth and/or heart murmur improves with good food, care, and treatment for anemia. Please donate to help me recieve much-needed medical care and get on my way to be adopted to a loving home!
All additional funds collected will be used to help other kitties like Butterscotch.
THANK YOU for your support!
