Carina is a sweet, 6-year old cat at our shelter. She has been with us since February when we rescued her Animal Control, where she was brought in as a stray. While Carina has always been a sweet kitty, she has not always been so happy and outgoing. She seems very reserved and even uncomfortable at times. We noticed recently that Carina's back teeth and gums were in bad shape and she even lost a tooth. Unfortunately, we have no idea what Carina ate or how she was cared for before we rescued her. But, judging from her oral care, it seems that she did not eat well.

We brought Carina to our favorite Vet clinic, South Athens Animal Clinic in Athens, GA. This is where we found out that Carina is going to need major Oral Surgery. Her diagnosis is Stomatitis, an Oral Infection, even possible Resorption. This is pretty rare in a cat Carina's age because she is still young at only 6 years old. The Veterinarian said that Carina is very likely miserable due to her oral issues. Carina got a steriod shot and started on antiobiotics to help control her pain and infection until her first surgery. We have made Carina her first appointment to have surgery. Carina's surgery will need to be performed in two parts because it is very time consuming. Oral Surgery for animals is very expensive, but we want to help Carina in every way possible. South Athens Animal Clinic is very good to us and has offered to do Carina's surgery for a very reasonable price and we can not Thank them enough! 

We need to raise $875 total to cover both of Carina's surgeries. Please help us give Carina her smile back! Carina will likely need all or most of her teeth removed, but her quality of life will be greatly improved! She will available for adoption again as soon as she has recovered from surgery. 

As you can see from the picture below, we put Carina with another lonely cat, CJ. They absolutely love each other and snuggle all day long! We would love to adopt these two together, but in the mean time CJ will be helping Carina feel better! Please email Leah@AthensHumaneSociety.org if you have any questions about Carina!

 Let's Give Carina Her Smile Back! We only need 35 people to donatr $25 to reach our goal for Carina's surgeries!
