Max needs the second half of his stomatitis surgery to remove his remaining teeth. As you can see from this photo taken during his first surgery, the poor guy’s tissues are extremely inflamed and infected, which makes eating super painful. Currently, he is being managed on medication to keep him eating but this uncomfortable situation will not resolve without all of the teeth being removed because this is an immune response to the bacteria that grow on the teeth, hence all teeth need to come out.
Max and Baldur are both in their mid teens and will have more quality years ahead of them once their medical issues are under control but we really need your help. We have run out of all medical funds and are actually still about $100 in debt for meds, labs and cremations from the last few months of helping community cats.
This next surgery alone, without meds will be approx $600. Please consider a donation in any amount. (We keep a spreadsheet with donations and expenses with receipts which we are happy to share with anyone that asks.)

We included the baby cam photo as an update to show that he seems to have made friends or is at least taking comfort in, one of his colony mates (who is sick with something else) being with him. (They hide when a human goes in their room so we snuck this photo with the babycam.
