Kitty got to get her meds!!

I posted about Chase no Face kitty many moons ago!

She is one special little feline! If you have not heard of her she is a Facebook celeb! She was hit by a car when she was a wee little kitten and was badly injured but thankfully saved by a good Samaritan.  She needs meds to thrive and her people have put out some campaigns to earn some much need coin for her meds.

You can go to her blog page and donate or you can also help by purchasing one of her custom designed products. We just ordered a sweatshirt with this image on it to help!!

They have a Tee Spring page to sell some cool designed shirts by graphic designer Josh Ellingson to help raise money.

I pulled this from her FB page so you can read her story.

I was a stray cat that wandered into a road and was hit by a car (not intentionally) at about three weeks old. A Good Samaritan brought me to a clinic and donated money to help me but advised he was not in need of a cat. I became the clinic cat. My mom worked there and took care of me at night and on weekends. Then I became hers once she moved away.

I am not in pain. Just don’t have a nose (so I can’t smell or beg for food) and no eyelids. I just need eye drops to keep care of my eyes. There are humans who have these issues as well and function just fine too. For me it is a cosmetic issue more than a health issue.

I sleep w my eyes open. I don’t have any other option and I’ve been doing it since I was a few weeks old. It doesn’t faze me. I do enjoy a dark corner or hiding spot but can still gladly sleep on a couch by a window.

I eat dry cat food and drink water out of a bowl.

I meow extra loud (no muffle) and enjoy doing so at 2 am up and down the steps.

Oh I also lost a back leg in that accident.

I am 8.5yrs old and love to give head nuzzles and licks. I don’t mind being dressed up by my little human siblings and have participated in more tea parties than I can count on my toes.

You can donate to help w cost of eye medicine via PayPal on my blog chasenoface(dot) blogspot(dot) com. Or message me for information. Or if you happen to have Refresh or Genteal or Systane brand eye drops laying around you can mail them to me smile emoticon

I use a mixture of prescription steroids (as needed), prescription antibiotics and currently use eye drops and gels to help with my eye lubrication (I DO still make tears).

I’m happy, well loved and taken care of. I hope to spread a little joy and help others realize its really not the outside that matters and being different isn’t a bad thing and definitely doesn’t give a cause for not living and living happily.

I have been artistic in one way or another all my life. Growing up in a creative family fueled my desire towards being an artist. I moved to Santa Cruz, CA from Detroit, MI in 2009, I needed a creative outlet and started volunteering at a local Clay Studio where I created many hand built ceramic vessels and fun sculptures. From there, I stumbled into sewing and started a handbag line under the name Mackerilla Design. After many years of sewing my bag designs, (which I currently still sell sewing patterns of my designs on ETSY and through a few online retailers) I wanted to get back to being an artist and started painting in 2014. Since I am passionate about animals and volunteer for rescues, painting dogs and cats in acrylic paint on canvas would be my subjects of choice! But I do love to paint all other living creatures as well as a few humans here and there! My approach is to capture the animal’s essence through the look in their eyes. To show their vulnerability and love for their humans. I truly love painting and have so many ideas continuously swirling in my head! I feel I am still learning and growing. I am looking forward to my future to see my progression as being an artist. -Janice Serilla
