In the summer of 2022, a large beautiful cat named Dancer came to the MD SPCA. She was 10 years old and so overweight that she couldn’t groom herself.

She had urine scalding on her hind end that turned into an infection. Our compassionate team cleaned her up, prescribed antibiotics, and started her on a weight-loss plan.

She spent the summer in a loving foster home, losing weight and showing off her decided personality. Finally, she was adopted in the fall and is now a happy, healthy cat!
