Story

Hello everyone, and thank you for taking the time to look at this justgiving page.

We are desperately trying to raise funds for Hope, a rescue cat we have recently re-homed.

We were informed that a cat had been reported as being in a very poor state, she had been living in a barn on a local farm in the cold for the past week or so, she was covered in engine oil and was skin and bone. We have taken her in and offered her a forever home with our other cats, she is settling in really well and has the sweetest personality I have ever seen.

We took her to the vets this afternoon for a health checkup as her tongue was constantly out and she seemed to be drooling a little, unfortunately she requires to have all of her teeth removed due to having tooth rot on her back teeth and her canines have been pushed in from some sort of impact. Unfortunately we will never know the cause for this.

Due to me recently losing my job out of the blue for questionable reasons, I cannot afford the operation outright, I am currently looking for work but Hope is in desperate need of this operation and it cannot wait. I do not have the heart for the other, cheaper option. The vets say other than the infection and damaged teeth she is very healthy. We have no idea of her age but she appears to be in good shape, she has been given antibiotics to help fight the infection and ease pain before the operation date (25/11/16). She has also been fleed and wormed.

I am not normally one for writing things like this, so I do apologise if this is awkward to read, but I feel that Hope needs a second chance at life, and in the short time we have known each other we have really bonded.

The £350 will cover:

The necessary blood tests to determine if she is healthy enough to undergo the surgery

An X-ray of her jaw to see if any of her teeth can be saved

The operation itself to have the affected teeth surgically removed

Painkillers for the after operation.

Thank you for your time.

    Hello everyone, thank you again for everyone that has donated and shared the cause, hope is back in at the vets this evening for another checkup but she is coming along leaps and bounds, we are now starting to see her personality and she has proven to be quite cheeky at times! She is taking good care of herself (Cleaning and eating etc) and is now starting to get her winter coat. I will update you on how the appointment goes and hopefully we can push for that last 5%! Once again thank you everyone! Michael.

    Hello everyone, quick update, this picture should speak 1000 words, she is no longer in pain and has settled fully in to our small family, she has come around with a real character and is the most loving cat I know. We had to borrow £350 from my grandfather as the operation could not wait until the end of the funding, the rest of the additional money has come out of my savings for our rent and bills, but we can get by for now. Thank you everyone form your support so far and hopefully we can reach our target!

    Hello everyone, Another update, Hope has had her operation and all has gone well, her blood tests revealed she is healthy but unfortunately the X-ray showed that all of her teeth had to be removed, the original quote was to have 8 teeth removed as the vet said she shouldn't need any more than that removing but on closer inspection it turned out none of her teeth could be saved. This means the bill has risen substantially. Thank you everyone who has donated so far and I hope we can meet the new target! Thanks again Michael
