Watson's mouth aches

Watson is an 8-year old brown Tabby, a long time resident at our shelter. He is a really sweet guy, a peacemaker among the shelter kitties, but today Wilson's mouth aches. He is suffering from stomatitis, an auto-immune condition that causes his body to attack its own teeth. The result: Watson's gums are inflamed, all his teeth infected. Imagine having abscesses on ALL your teeth. The only remedy: remove all the teeth to end the suffering. How will Watson chew his food, you may ask? Not a problem, he likes canned food. Watson has an appointment on March 20, and he is on antibiotic to fight the infection before the extraction. The cost? $800 to $1000, a hefty bill for Cats' Angels, even after the discount we get at that clinic. We are very appreciative of any amount you can contribute to help us relieve Watson's suffering.

UpdateWatson had his teeth extracted yesterday. It went well, with no complications. He is on pain medication for three days, after that he will begin a new life without pain, and he will NOT miss his teeth. He loves canned food. The bill came up to $1035. A big thank you to all of you who contributed, we couldn't have done it without your help. But with $700 in donations to date, we are still a bit short of the goal. We continue to accept donations in any size over the next few days. Thank you all!
