Sammie's Story

Poor Sammie, has had a hard life. This New York kitten suffers from polyps in his nose and ears. His owner has paid to have the polyps surgically removed several times, and Sammie bounces right back to being his loving kitty self. But in a few months, the polyps grow back, and Sammie is in pain again, with pressure on his eyes and trouble breathing. If the problem is left untreated, it will kill Sammie.  

But there is hope for Sammie to have a full, pain-free life. With two extensive surgeries to remove part of both ears and his sinuses, the polyps will have nowhere to grow back. The surgeries have to be separate, so that Sammie doesn’t experience equilibrium problems. He may look a little silly after getting the help, but he will not mind one bit, when he realizes how much easier life is without polyps. The total cost for this life-saving treatment will be well over $10,000.  

You have the power to change the life of a cat and his family. Every donation will work together to give Sammie a new lease on life.

Sammie's second surgery was supposed to be yesterday, but it's been rescheduled until early next month. Another more pressing emergency needed to be taken care of this week and the specializing surgeon has limited availability. Please keep Sammie in your thoughts.

Sammie's Second Surgery Scheduled

Sweet Sammie has his second surgery scheduled mid March. It's a little later than originally planned, but COVID played a part in pushing it back. Sammie is doing well and is ready to be in full health after his second and final surgery.
