Weʼre raising £500 to Help pay for Thomas Tinkers' vets treatment

Clitheroe, United Kingdom

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


My handsome Thomas Tinker is a rescue kitty. He is an adorable sweetheart, very vocal and loving and always ready to give cuddles. That is until his mouth plays up.

Unfortunately he has a severe form of gingivitis which means his mouth feels like it's full of abscesses. There is no cure for this only long term treatment which currently involves steroid tablets daily but when he has a flare up, of which is becoming more common, he needs a steroid and antibiotic injection .

This is all working well for him, and I will continue to do this for as long as he's happy!

However, as you can imagine this is quite costly so I am being cheeky and hoping to ask the kind hearted people of the internet if they would be willing to help a little?

I know it is a big ask and I also know I shouldn't have pets if I can't afford the upkeep but the smile on his face is all the motivation I need! He is a part of our family now and I will do anything to help him.

Huge thank you in advance to anybody willing to help out, Thomas and I will be so grateful!

    Thomas had to have 5 teeth removes! We only knew of a problem with one as unfortunately he doesn't allow the vet to look into his mouth very easily. He's recovering well now and hopefully will continue to mend. He still has his steroids of course but we have to keep an eye out for a flare. The vet said it may not happen as quickly, may not even happen at all but he thinks that is wishful thinking. In the mean time we lost our eldest boy, Jimmy Jewel. He hadn't been poorly so was a massive shock to us! Thank you to all who support us!

    We had to have TomTom back to the vets yesterday, they now want to sedate him and take some swabs to see what bacteria is prevalent in his mouth. As you can imagine this is going to cost a bit more money, we had to take him for a blood test to check his organs as he is on a super high level of steroids daily. Poor boy is going through the mill again but it doesn't stop him shouting for his food at dinner time! He is such a strong little boy and we will fight with him every step of the way. Thank you to everybody who has helped so far!
