Here's how you've helped....
Without your help, Tiger would never of been with us. This poorly boy came into our care through serious neglect and as a result had to have all but his canine teeth removed. We knew at the point of visiting Tiger that he was smelly, dirty and had a poorly mouth, which caused him to dribble. We did everything we could to find a spot for this boy and we brought him back straight away, giving him a fresh start and renaming him Tiger.
After a couple of days of TLC and lots of yummy cat pate to eat, Tiger began to clean himself again and take pride in himself, you could see by the way he was walking that he was relieved to have a warm cosy bed again with regular food.
Once he was more settled, we made an appointment with our vet, who discovered that Tiger had grade 2 stomatitis but other than that, there were no other visible health issues. Our vets ran bloods to make sure this wasn’t being caused by leukaemia or FIV. Luckily, he was in the clear and now we had to focus on helping him fight this horrid mouth infection. He was sent back home with us with a course of antibiotics to start the battle, a week later, Tiger went back to our vet to have a big operation where the removed all but his canine teeth.
Tiger is recovering extremely well after his operation and we are all waiting patiently until it is time for his follow up appointment. The donations we receive ensured that Tiger had a cosy, heated pod to sleep in - something he hadn't had in years. He had fresh food 4 times a day to help him gain his strength. Flea and worm treatment and full vaccinations to ensure he is protected from disease. But most of all tiger got the treatment he needed and the love he deserves.
If you can spare the price of a costa coffee once a month, everyone here at Poppys, including Tiger, would be so grateful.
