This is the Gino Stomatitis Fund.The funds will be used for cat's medical treatment of painful condition. Fellow animal lovers please help!

My cat is a ginger tabby. He is 15 years old. It took me 13 years to adopt another cat after my cat Toby died. It was so heart-wrenching that I couldn't bring myself to adopt another. But then my Mom became ill with severe depression. I went and adopted Gino at 9 weeks of age with the thought that he would help to put a smile on my Mom's face, He did. She loved him and enjoyed watching him play. Gino lifted her depression very much. We always said that he is "the best kitty in the whole wide world". After 2 years, at 71 years of age, my Mom became ill with pancreatic cancer. She had difficult time walking and would ride in her wheelchair with Gino on her lap and laughed since she got a kick out of him. My Mom passed away. I grew very depressed, but had to get out of bed in the morning to take care of Gino who would sit at the side of my bed and cry until I did. He helped me a great deal. He gave me a reason to live and get up in the morning. I just love him so much.
Gino is now suffering from stomatitis in his mouth with makes him drool excessively and is very painful. Medication is not working and he needs his teeth removed. I lost my job over a year ago and have been struggling financially. I have a job now as a nurse's aide, but I am trying to catch up on my household and overdue bills which are in the thousands. I don't have enough money to help Gino feel better. He has helped me and my Mom so much over the years and was always there for us that I want to help him at least with his stomatitis. I know my Mom would be very happy and I would be, too.
