About the Campaign

Ms. Gingles (Jingles) is 10 years old.

The vet needs to do a blood-check to make sure she is ok for surgery.

Then she needs a number of broken teeth removed.

Ms. Gingles has been rubbing her mouth, and now has moved up to an even worse level: not eating well. The problem is she has a number of fractured teeth. This happens in older animals, especially with the really small teeth.

The problem is the little teeth crack, and then become infected below the gums. It is painful, and potentially dangerous.

Ms. Gingles owner, Charity, took her in when a neighbor moved away leaving Gingles behind. Gingles turned out to be Charity’s best friend, and has learned to climb up on Charity and purr and rub her when Charity is having a panic attack (Charity suffers from PTSD and is disabled on SSDI). In fact Charity is currently working to get Gingles registered as a true ESA (Emotional Support Animal) verified from her psychologist.

The medical and cost situation

Being on disability Charity does not have much available money, nor the chance to save. She is saving what she can for the vet bill, but at the current rate it will take her more than 12 months, and Gingles is getting worse and needs these teeth removed ASAP.

The vet is providing a good price, and Charity will be contributing what she can. Gingles needs money for the oral surgery, and for preliminary blood-work.

Currently we expect the total price to be about $1300-1400 on the high end with the blood-work and medications. All donations here are only for Gingles, and will only be paid directly to the vet when the surgery is done!

Donate in confidence that your donation will help this sweet, and very helpful, kitty get better and live a life free of pain!! MEW!!!!!

    I’m a cat owner and seeing cats and other animals in pain really upsets me and being able to help even by a little can save a life. Hope they get better soon.
