Chris Cook is an animal advocate, and spends much of her time posting animals in need to her Facebook page. She's especially involved in helping cats who have been diagnosed with FIP, a disease that is most often fatal.

Now Chris needs our help. She has a little kitten named Hope, who is a miracle kitty who has faced a life threatening illness and recovered.

Hope was recently diagnosed with a disease that causes eats away her teeth below the gum line. Her vet plans to pull at least two of her teeth, but won't know the extent of the damage until he gets Hope under anesthesia.

Cat dental surgery is expensive, and Chris needs help raising the $430 needed for the operation. A YouCaring webpage has been set up here. You can also subscribe to update on Hope from her webpage.

Direct pay can also be made to the vet at the contact information below.
