Help Us Support Li'l Licorice!

Licorice (collar #74) arrived at the shelter on May 5th and was immediately a staff and volunteer favorite. She has a gorgeous long coat, and she's sweet and friendly to boot. She gets along with all the other cats at the shelter. 
Our shelter staff noticed that Licorice had some problems with her teeth. We took her to the vet and had two teeth removed. We also noticed that she was drinking excessively. When we checked her bloodwork, we found that her BUN (blood urea nitrogen) and creatinine levels were slightly higher than normal. These results may have been from her tooth infection, or she may be displaying the early stages of kidney disease.

Licorice is so sweet, purrs all the time and has a hearty appetite. We recommend an all wet food diet and testing her blood work again in late June (CCLAS is happy to pay for her follow up blood test). She has tested negative for FIV/FeLV, is spayed, and up to date with her vaccinations. Please consider adopting Licorice if you have experience caring for a special needs cat, or if you would like to give a very special animal a home.

If you can't adopt right now please consider donating to CCLAS to help us cover Licorice's vet bills for her dental surgery and bloodwork at
