Simba's Teeth Extraction

This is Simba. I rescued him from some cruel neighbors at my last apartment complex (he was a stray, I actually moved mostly because of those neighbors and took Simba and his mate MeMe with me).

Unfortunately since he has lived the majority of his life as a feral cat, most of his teeth are in very poor condition. Recently he started getting nauseous and making hacking sounds. Turns out really bad teeth can not only make your mouth sore but also make your stomach upset (poor guy - not sure how long he had that going on before I noticed.)

Today he had most of those rotten teeth extracted. It came out to over $1200 . . .

I did not anticipate this cost and have already been hit with some unexpected expenses aside from Simba's vet expenses this month.

Due to not being able to afford his medical bill today, I had to put that money on Care Credit which means I am deeper in debt than I already was.

I'll be working on paying this off for the next 18 months as well as his wellness plan which is $44 per month.

If I could raise a bit of money to cover even part of the cost of his tooth extraction that would give me a jump start to paying off his vet bill.

Thank you to anyone that donates and if you donate $5 or more I would be happy to make a free digital pet portrait upon request for you :)
