Dibbler transferred to us from Glynn Co AC during the Hurricane Dorian evacuation. When she first arrived, we noticed she had a funny growth on the roof of her mouth. We monitored it for a while and tried some meds, but it didn't improve. Dibbler had laser removal of the mass in December and it was sent for biopsy. The biopsy showed it was likely a previous wound or foreign material that the body's immune response was to grow these cells around it. We were glad to hear it wasn't cancer! Since her body responded this way, we do worry that she could develop stomatitis later on in life. Dibbler also had her gums trimmed a little bit because they were growing over her teeth. Even though that sounds scary, that was a pretty easy procedure and she's healed from all of the above just fine. Her dermatologist put Dibbler on a hypoallergenic diet trial. We don't currently expect that to be long-term but she will continue through Mid-February. We told all of this info to Dibbler and she said "Woah, how boring!" because her main worry in life is how to get people's attention so they can pet her or if the toy mouse in front of her will move before she pounces. Dibbler likes other kitties and will do well in any home as long as her human agrees to have regular dental check-ups as she ages. Dibbler has been patiently waiting for her forever family!
