Foster Update! Please read and pass along:
Timmy, our foster kitten saw the Dental Specialist today and we are sad to say he must have a full mouth tooth extraction performed. He is suffering from Stomatitis, which causes his body to have an immune response to the normal bacteria in his mouth. He has not responded to the steroids and antibiotics so far and he has been in a lot of pain. His condition will greatly improve from this procedure and he will undergo two surgeries over the next month. It is believed that this will stop his horrible pain. This very young guy has had a very rough start to life but he is very deserving of this help and a chance at a good life. We were hoping for a different outcome but after trying every alternative we have reached the conclusion that this is the only thing that will help him long-term. The surgeries will total $1,882.52. Prior to this, his medical care has already reached nearly $1,000. If you can donate, any amount helps! His first surgery is this Friday morning.
