Kitty in Pain Needs You - Urgent Medical Need

Donation protected

Hello, kind souls!

My name is Kathleen, and I want to introduce you to my sweet kitty, Samwise. He is not just a cat to me; he is my best friend, my baby, a source of great comfort and joy for my heart. I love him so deeply and want him to feel better.

Unfortunately, my sweet kitty is currently battling a painful condition that's preventing him from enjoying life to the fullest. Samwise is a healthy and happy kitty, but lately, he has been struggling with severe dental issues. His remaining four canine teeth are causing him immense pain due to inflammation, and his gums are in a terrible state.

It breaks my heart to see him struggle to eat his favorite food food, which is entirely out of character for this food-loving furball.

I am devastated to find myself in a challenging financial situation right now. You see, I have been preparing for a mission trip to Nigeria to help young women break free from the chains of poverty. The mission project, H.E.R. Path Project, aims to create opportunities for these women and provide them with essential resources to overcome period poverty.

While my heart is full of hope and excitement for the positive change we will bring to these young lives, the project has drained ALL my financial resources…

I didn't anticipate Samwise needing urgent medical attention during this time. But I can't bear to see him suffer for even one more day. He needs to undergo surgery on Monday, which is crucial for his recovery and overall well-being. But the medical expenses are beyond what I can afford right now…

I find myself at a crossroads - torn between my mission to uplift young women and my commitment to providing the best care for my furry friend. It's a heart-wrenching decision to make, and I can't do it alone. I'm turning to the compassionate hearts out there, hoping you can help me raise the funds needed to give Samwise a chance at a pain-free life.

Every contribution, no matter how small, will make a significant impact on Samwise's life. Your generosity will ensure that Samwise gets the medical attention he desperately needs, allowing him to enjoy his meals and be the happy, playful cat he once was.

As I work tirelessly to set up a safe space for the young women in Nigeria, I'm also seeking your support in securing a safe and healthy future for Samwise. Together, we can make a difference in both the life of a furry friend and the lives of young women in need.

From the depths of my heart, I thank you for taking the time to read our story. Please consider donating and sharing our fundraiser with your friends and family. Your kindness will not only make Samwise so happy, but also make an incredible impact on the lives of those less fortunate. Thank you for being our heroes.

With love and gratitude,


P.S. Updates on Samwise's journey will be shared with all our generous supporters. Let's embark on this journey of hope and healing together!
