I am raising money to get Shankar, one of our M.A. Center barn cats, immediate care for an infected wound. Please Help!

Om Namah Shivaya!

I started this fundraiser in hopes to raise enough money to get one of our M.A. Center barn cats immediate care.

His name is Shankar and he's lived here for more than a decade. He is not "my" cat, although I love him like he is, but belongs to the community and land. He is a sweet one and a darn good mouser, leaving "gifts" on a regular basis. Greeting everyone that stops by, he is always here to give a cheerful hello.

Recently, he has lost his cheer and is in pain. Over this last week, he acquired a scratch or wound under his eye (see photos) that has scabbed over and become inflamed within just two days. Although I did my best to clean it, it is definitely infected and spreading toward his mouth.

Although he still eats - I don't think anything would stop him from eating;-) - he growls and hisses when I feed him, where he normally would be purring. Poor guy.

When I talked to the vet, she thought it would cost at least $360 because there is a good possibility the wound will have to be lanced and he will have to be under anesthesia. They cannot help unless the bill will be paid in full. Please note: I added another $40 to cover Give Forward and PayPal fees.

Because I do not want to get any worse, I am spending my rent money to take him in tomorrow (July 12) and pay for the bill in hopes this fundraiser works by the end of the month! With Amma's grace, I'm sure it will.

That's where you come in! Can you pitch in to help me recover the cost? Any contribution is helpful!

If I make more than the goal, I will put the money in a special fund for emergency care for all the cats we feed here: Shankar, Kali Mata, Spot, Radha, and/or the two other ferral cats that don't officially have names;-)

Thank you for considering.

In Amma,
