Like many of the other 55 cats Artura arrived with, she suffers from giardia, upper respiratory infections, and severe dental disease, which causes her intense, constant agony.

Terrified of all people when she arrived, she spent most of her time hiding from everyone she met.

Thankfully, she is slowly beginning to trust people and become more comfortable, even rolling over onto her back sometimes when she's really relaxed.

But before she can be the queen of her forever home, she needs your help to get better. You can provide the surgery and followup care that will allow her to heal.

ID#: 441966

*Goal includes: surgery, medication, annual vaccinations, regular health check, and daily care for Artura until she’s ready for adoption. If her medical costs and cost of care is less than is raised in her name, additional funds will provide care for other animals.

Hoping you reach your goal and Artura is feeling better for the holiday season. She looks like such a sweet girl who deserves a chance at a loving forever home. She will be in my thoughts.
