A few weeks ago, a cute little grey cat decided to move in with us. We had never seen her before. We named her Priscilla Queen of the Dessert, because she has beautiful sand colored fur, perfect to hunt undetected in a dune landscape. But she lives in the city, and since a few weeks, in a quite street with little traffic and lots of cat friends. Queen P is very affectionate and is not aggressive towards other cats. Her ear is clipped, which means she's spayed. Because she is so affectionate and has a clipped ear, we believe she was not always a stray cat. We assume she was abandoned by her previous human care taker. She has a healthy appetite, but sneezes all the time. And it's a nasty and pretty wet sneeze. She is in desperate need of a cure, also to protect the other cats around her. We won't have her eat from the same bowls as the other cats we've adopted do, because we're afraid those other cats will get sick too. Doing traffic control for a swirl of cats ain't easy, I tell you.
We took Miss P. to our favorite vet, Tala, and her diagnose was that Priscilla has huge problems with her teeth, which is why also the inflammation, which makes her sneeze, continues. Several of her teeth need to be pulled, quite an expensive procedure. The cost of all needed treatment will exceed 500 USD, and that's at the deducted rate for street cats. The animal clinic where Tala works kindly deducts all bills for treatment of street cats with a generous 30%. We want to help Priscilla. Every dollar is welcome. Please help Priscilla to again become a healthy cat! She's full of life, but her sickness and toothache should be halted. And halted fast.
