About the Campaign

Shiva needs some teeth pulled urgently

This poor kitty is in pain. It was very hard for the doctor to get a good look in his mouth, as Shiva doesn’t want anyone to touch it, but she saw one very brown and clearly infected tooth in the back, and that as surely also infected his gums.

Shiva is a rescue, adopted three years ago in California and now living in Arizona. His owner Maggi likes black cats, and also knows that they end up as strays a bit more than others and have more trouble getting adopted too.

At the end of the summer Shiva seemed to be sticking his tongue out more than usual, and over the next few months Maggi started to suspect it wasn’t the heat, but maybe his teeth. She tried some home cures, like coconut oil, because money was tight. But Shiva didn’t seem to get better. And then in the last weeks he started really having symptoms. Chattering his teeth when eating, and then even gagging and not eating.

A friend helped her get him to the vet, and the diagnosis was clear… he needs some teeth pulled right away. Maggi got him antibiotics to tamp down the infection for now, and some pain pills, but he needs to go in this weekend at the latest. She has about $100 available, but that is all, and no Care Credit. So let’s help Shiva get the relatively small amount he needs to get out of pain, and his mouth fixed up!
