Six's Cleft Palate Repair Fund has been created to repair the birth defect of our beloved kitten, Six. Please help!
a congenital defect of the palate in which a longitudinal fissure exists in the roof of the mouth.
Six was born to a stray cat, he was the sixth and final kitten in the litter and was the runt. He was born premature with a cleft in his palate. It does not affect his face, but it causes problems. He is not weaned and everything in his mouth goes out his nose and vice versa. It causes him to get sinus infections and upper respiratory infections often. Things can get stuck in his sinuses and recently a rubber band did which resulted in a trip to the vet, sedation, and removal.
Due to the expensive kitten milk replacer, over $130 a month, his unexpected trips to the vet, and the fact that both my parents are on disability [my dad's a heart patient], we haven't been able to save anything and have even fallen behind on our utility bills. We need your help to get this little guy fixed!
