Eddie came to us as a shabby foster cat. He had a gum infection that made it painful for him to groom, and because of his FIV, and the severity of his condition, it was going to take a while to get him back into good health. Over the next several months Cat Town helped us cycle through medication, vet visits, and teeth removals until Eddie was out of pain. It took removing all but his last two teeth before he showed improvement, but after months of medical care and, I'd like to think, our boundless love for Eddie, he finally stabilized.
Buddy was already showing his old age when someone took him in as a stray, but after six months, his new person realized she simply couldn’t keep up with his growing medical bills. When she brought Buddy to the Oakland shelter, he was skinny, and and sickly. Cat Town took him to the vet as soon as we could. As we suspected, he had mild kidney disease and hyperthyroidism, which is why he was so thin. He may have lymphoma as well. He needed bloodwork, a heavy duty shot of antibiotics, and fluids, but was still as sweet as can be through it all.
