What a Lucky Boy

This handsome sweet boy is Grady. You couldn’t ask for a more affectionate sweet kitty. And if Grady could talk, he would have quite a story to tell!

gradyWe first learned about Grady when one of our FaceBook fans, Casey Taylor, contacted us. She told us that there was a totally ‘skin-and-bones’ thin kitty hanging around her home. Lorraine, one of our volunteers, spoke with Casey and then went and picked the kitty up. She took him to her house where she immediately began offering him canned food. Grady was happy to see the food and would try to eat, but would back away, crying in pain after just a mouthful! Lorraine took him to Dr. Rowe, a wonderful vet who works for the Spokane Humane society. Dr. Rowe discovered that Grady’s teeth were all horribly infected and his mouth was full of ulcers! He was literally starving to death, even when food was available, because it hurt too much to eat! Dr. Rowe did a wonderful job on Grady’s teeth. Unfortunately all of Grady’s teeth, except for his 4 canine teeth, had to be extracted and he was kept at the clinic for several days receiving antibiotics, fluids and food when he could eat again.

After 10 days on antibiotics, and can-after-can of food, Grady is filling up and out! He is such a gentle, sweet, purring, loving boy! Grady will need a special “indoor-only” home with a loving owner willing to feed him canned food, very possibly for the rest of his life. We Guesstimate that he is 7-8 years old. The vet does not think he is a senior. Please give us a call if you can offer Grady a pampered and loving “indoor only” home, after what he has been through, he sure deserves to live the pampered life!
