Meet Two Sweet Cats

Dear Lil BUB Family,

Before I give you some updates about our ongoing work. I wanted to take a moment and acknowledge that a member of our BUB community, Grant McCollum passed away recently. Grant and his wife Sherry have been great supporters of our work. One of the things I love most about our BUB community is the support we offer one another and the friendships formed through BUB. We have been holding Grant and his family in our hearts. We have received donations in Grant’s name, and with Sherry’s permission, we will be directing funds raised in Grant’s memory in a way that is meaningful to his family. We hope to honor Grant’s memory through our work and are so grateful to do so.

Today I want you to meet Ron and Granada, two great examples of the direct care we do through the BUB Fund. Here are their stories:

Sweet Ron: The Gentle Giant’s Road to Relief

Sweet Ron, a majestic and loving soul, has faced a challenging battle with severe anemia. His strength and courage through recovery have inspired us all, and we’re thrilled to share that he’s making a wonderful comeback. However, Ron’s journey to complete health includes a crucial step: dental surgery to extract painful teeth and restore his comfort and happiness. With an estimated cost of $600 for his dental work, we’re close to ensuring Ron can start his new life with an adopter who’s already fallen for his gentle charm.

Little Granada: A Tiny Fighter with a Big Heart

Granada, a delicate kitten with a spirit as vibrant as her namesake, is struggling in a battle of her own. At nearly 5 months old, she remains a tiny figure, weighing just 2 pounds despite a hearty appetite and normal kitten behaviors. Granada’s mystery condition requires extensive diagnostic testing to uncover the root of her growth challenges, with costs expected to reach $1,500. Her journey is one of hope and determination, and with your help, we can unlock the answers she needs to thrive.
