Mr. Bates is an older, gentleman cat from the streets of Brooklyn who has fallen on hard times. He recently had a very necessary dental surgery which resulted in the loss of all but four of his teeth, but will ultimately improve his quality of life immeasurably. It cost approximately $350; I am asking for donations, as I depleted most of my funds moving to NYC recently, and Mr. Bates must have left his wallet out on the street.

When I found Mr. Bates, he was limping up to every door on my street, seeming to ask for help. He was bleeding from his mouth, and clearly starving. I made the somewhat rash decision to take him in, not knowing what his personality was like. He's turned out to be the sweetest, most gentle cat imaginable. However, he has had a tough road. He had ear infections, fleas, parasites, severe dental problems, arthritis, and possibly has cancer. And he's probably between 11 and 14 years old! He must of suffered horribly every day on the street, as attested to by his physical condition. His age makes him a bit of an underdog (undercat?) in the adoption circuit, but regardless, he deserves a second chance. I am determined to provide Mr. Bates with a comfortable and happy life, and hopefully make up for some of the suffering he experienced in the past; by donating, you can help him have the retirement he deserves. Thank you!
