Q: How did you find out about the Feline Good Social Club?
A: I first heard about the Feline Good Social Club through a friend. My girlfriend and I decided to go on a lazy Sunday to get some animal time!
Q: Tell me about the first time you met Guppy.
A: I first saw Guppy when I was sitting on the floor petting other cats. I turned around and she was sitting like a dog, staring at me with a bit of drool on her mouth. (She just ate) I immediately fell in love with her and could tell she was a sweetheart.
Q: How did you decide to sponsor her?
A: I decided to offer sponsorship to Guppy after doing a bit of research on feline cleft palates the night after I visited. I saw that there was a possibility it could improve her quality of life and wanted to offer my time to help make it happen.
Q: What does sponsorship mean to you?
A: To me, sponsorship is just a way I can volunteer in a focused way to help address Guppy’s individual needs. There is obviously so much good happening at the social club with all of the rescues, and I hope that my extra hand can help with some of the odd jobs needed to make it happen.

With Ron’s support, we have taken Guppy to get a new vet’s opinion about treatment options for her condition. The good news is that other than the cleft palate, she seems to be a healthy and happy cat. She is able to eat, drink, and clean herself, which is all comforting to know. She is definitely living her best life here at the FGSC! That said, we will continue to explore treatment options to see if there is anything that can or should be done for her condition.
We’d like to thank Ron again for all his help. He is turning out to be the purrfect sponsor for Guppy!
