Sitka struggles to breathe. She suffers from a deformity called Pectus Excavatum, which means her rib cage is caved inwards, leaving very little room for her heart and lungs.

If left untreated she will die.

Thankfully you can provide the surgery this ten-week old babby needs to live a long full life. Despite struggling to breathe, Sitka purrs non-stop and loves everyone she meets.

You can save Sitka's life today.

For Phil Taylor who asked about Sitka's outcome... I am Sitka's foster mom. Thanks to all the generous donors to the fundraising campaign, Sitka is going in for her surgery on Monday, November 6.
