Tiger is at All Funds Raised!!!! Donations no longer needed!

Tiger is a 11 year old, kitty with a fractured abscessed tooth and sinus infection which is causing her not to eat. Tigers vet has given him fluids and antibiotics to help but Tiger needs surgery as soon as possible in order to survive.

Tiger's owner, who found her as a stray 8 years ago, had this to say about her boy;

I am a 75 year old widow receiving treatment for breast cancer. Tiger has been my loving companion since June 2003. I watched Tiger get hit by a car and then stagger along side the road injured. No one stopped to help him. I stopped and picked him up off the road and took him to the vet where he was treated. Tiger is my special loving companion and has had a lot of pain in his life already. Please provide the necessary funds to restore his health; and give me strength to continue on.

If you are able to help, please go to http://tinyurl.com/79og6jd to make a donation; note for Tiger Schultz. If you prefer, you may also make a direct donation via PayPal by specifying paypal@imom.org as the recipient. Don't forget to indicate Tiger’s name when making your donation.

PS. Tiger's Mom is having trouble with the forum so it may be awhile before she can get here and post, also we'll attach a picture as soon as we have one.

Thank you all so much!

Nothing like a matching challenge to get things started - I'm putting $50 on the table. I know someone will take my money... Betsy

Let's get Tiger on his way to feeling better. Send in your money, Betsy! We're taking your challenge.

Let's paint the town pink, and get Tiger to AFR before his mom figures out the forum.

I believe Tiger's Mom may be having some challenges posting and I have written her and her daughter in law (who is helping) again to try to get a picture of Tiger and to try to get them on the forum. I know if they could, they would tell you all how thankful they are and appreciative. Hopefully we will hear from them soon!

$150 already! What a great Fund Update! Thank you all so much!

CatPaws, correct me if I'm wrong, but in your note when you sent in your donation for Betsy's Matching Challenge, it looks liked you also issued *another* $50 Matching Challenge. I hope I'm correct! :)

So, we now have 2 more Matching Challenges!

$40 MC from DabcoJazWhif

$50 MC from CatPaws

Tiger's Mom is currently working on trying to post - hopefully she'll get things figured out, and we'll hear from her soon. :) Who will be the first person to take part of Tiger's Matching Challenges? I know there is somebody out there who will!

Tiger, Tiger's Mom and fellow IMOMers ~ I've come here to celebrate some good news with you. Last month I was diagnosed with uterine cancer. After surgery it was found that the cancer had not spread to any any other organs and it was not found in my lymph nodes. Today I am cancer free. To celebrate, I've donated the rest of the funds (I think) to Tiger. I hope that her meowmie is cancer-free very soon.

We're painting in "pink-purple" now! So good to hear your news, Lisa!!! Seems we have a few "Cancer Butt Kickers" in our midst, and hope we'll have at least one more very, very soon.

Any news on scheduling for Tiger's treatment? :pp_animal_554::pp_animal_556::motimonkey::EMOTITWOCATS:
