Hi my name is Callie and things have been pretty tough lately and I need a new home or get into a rescue asap.  My mom was diagnosed with cancer last week and after 13 years she unfortunately can't take care of me anymore.  Someone that knows me came to see my mom this week and noticed that I was having a hard time eating.  Even one bite hurts my mouth.  This person took me to the vet today to get my mouth looked at.  I had all my teeth removed last year because I am allergic to plaque and unfortunately the vet that did my surgery left a lot of debris and tooth fragments in my mouth and my gums healed over them.  Today I went to a new, wonderful Vet (Dr. Shokar at Animal Medical Center, Modesto, CA http://www.animal-medicalcenter.com/) and he removed all the tooth fragments and was able to get my mouth back together and I am soooo looking forward to eating again.  He did all sorts of bloodwork on me and I am in great shape!!!  I tested negative for feline HIV and negative for leukemia.  I did test positive for corona virus which is dormant in my system and vet said that I probably picked this up as a kitty as I have no signs of the disease at all.  I would be best in a one cat household unless you have another kitty with corona.  My new vet told my guardian angel that once my mouth heals that I can live out my life because my bloodwork looks so good.  I am 13 years old and have been a loyal outdoor kitty for my entire life. 
I have been on my own as an outdoor cat and would need to be trained to be an indoor/lap kitty.  I know that since I don't have any teeth I probably need to be an indoor kitty anyway so I am willing to make the change now and now that I am a senior I am looking for a low-key lifestyle and lots of love.  If you know of anyone that can give me a great home please email my guardian angel:  geribekmanis@gmail.com   I am located in Modesto, CA but I can travel for the right forever home.  Help me please because right now I am being boarded at the vet to recover from my surgery and I have till the end of the week to find a home.
