Botan's Tooth Extraction Surgery

Botan, my calico cat & the sweetest kitty in the world, needs surgery to relieve her tooth pain u_u

I recently noticed that one of Bobo's teeth appeared pink (picture below). I thought it looked strange so I googled a bit and found that it seemed to be something called "resorption  ," a condition that causes teeth to rot from the inside, exposing nerves at a certain point in the crumbling process which is very painful.

I contacted her vet and confirmed that she is suffering from tooth resorption. I was told by her vet that this condition had nothing to do with dental upkeep/health (meaning it was unavoidable) and that it's common in cats. She needs surgery to remove the pink tooth, along with a few others that seem to have the same symptoms. The entire process was quoted as being around $2,000, so all proceeds from this fundraiser will go towards that payment. 

At the time of her diagnosis, the vet gave me some pain medicine to help her cope but I've run out of it and I know it's about time that she has the surgery. I realized through this process that she is already missing a tooth and another is almost fully crumbled away, so it's impossible to know how long she's been suffering from this. I would like to bring her relief, but I don't have $2,000 set aside for an emergency as I am currently in between jobs.

Botan has been with me for 10 years and she is an absolute angel. She is incredibly friendly, confident, affectionate, patient, trusting, and obedient. I constantly get compliments about how sweet she is from friends, acquaintances, groomers, and vets. She absolutely loves all humans and would run right up to each one of you and thank you herself if she could! She honestly deserves to have this surgery so she can live pain-free.

I am incredibly thankful for all donations. I also do tarot readings so for donors interested in that, please contact me on twitter @haleyhlme and I would be happy to give you a reading.
