I’ve tried to keep everyone up to date on Naomi’s dental adventures. From having all of her teeth pulled to surgeries to repair the holes in the roof of her mouth from electrical burns (due to chewing on an electrical cord), this poor girl has had her fill of dental visits. Her last visit involved having a “septal button” placed in the remaining hole. This device is similar to what they use with babies who have inoperable cleft palates. Miss Naomi will have this in her mouth the rest of her life to keep things from going into her nasal cavities.
I just had a call from Naomi’s foster mom, Kim, today and Naomi went in for a final check with Dr. Klein. He removed some stitches and made the septal button fit better in her mouth so it would not rub her skin and cause any irritation. He also told Kim that Naomi is now ready to find her forever home!! Hurrah! It has been a long, long journey for this girl–over eight months with her foster family while we got her mouth healed. Now it is time for her to get her fairy tale ending!
If you know anyone who is looking for an excellent, lovely kitty, please let them know about Naomi. She is about five years old, has been spayed, vaccinated, and tested negative for feline leukemia/FIV. Now that her mouth feels better, she loves to play with her mice and is always looking for love and attention.
We also want to take this time to thank Dr. Tom Klein of East Hilliard Veterinary Services for all that he has done for Naomi (and our little Bean Bag who had the broken jaw). Not only did he help Naomi get the best care possible, he also kept in mind that we are a rescue and did everything for the kindest prices ever!
Our PLG is no longer a Poor Little Girl. She is, instead, “Positively Lovely.”
