This Old Lady has never asked for anything in her life. She's now old enough to drive and vote, and now, she needs help.
Ophelia is a classy girl who's always been fat and healthy. In the last year, though, her age has finally caught up with her. Ophelia has refused to brush her teeth after every meal, no matter how much we try to tell her otherwise. Now, she's paying the price!!
Ophelia has end-stage dental disease with abscessation of several teeth. Today, she came in with an enormous swelling under her eye that had broken open from a severe tooth root abscess.
In all seriousness, this little lady is a young 19 years. She's a remarkable girl full of life and who is very healthy, except for her rotten teeth. Looking at her, you would never, ever believe she's 19 years old, not even for a second. Her Momma has had her since she was a tiny kitten, and has always taken good care of her. It's been easy, until now.
Unfortunately, Ophelia's dental distress could not have happened at a worse time. With recent economic and global events, there is no money, Ophelia's mom is homeless, and we, The Cats At Longstreet, want to help.
But we need your help. If we can't raise the funds to help Ophelia, we need to be kind and euthanize her. But I'm not ready to give up yet.
Please, help if you can. Even if you can't donate, please share her story and spread the word.
Ophelia went to surgery last week. We extracted all of her terrible teeth. I am thrilled to report that she is doing AWESOME, and the enormous open wound on her right cheek is already nearly fully healed.
We have successfully raised enough to cover well over half of her procedure. Thank you so much for all your help.
