Holly was rescued as a tiny kitten from a kill shelter. She was adopted in March as a healthy kitty and returned to us 5/21, very sick, down to 3# 6oz, and on death's door. Not only was she not eating in her adoptive home, but she had developed a condition called dry FIP which also has neurological components. She wasn't eating on her own, she was incontinent, and could barely walk.
Thankfully, there is a new drug called GS to treat what was once a death sentence. It is not available in the US yet so it has to be shipped from another country, but time and again it has shown to save the lives of kitties that once had no chance. We think every life matters - even when it's hard to care for them or they are expensive to treat, and GS is both.
We started Holly on GS right away and she is already up to 5#, eating on her own, and walking so much better! The treatment is a long course (84 days if it doesn't have to be extended) and requires antibiotics, bloodwork, etc as well to maintain her health while her precious little body fights.
Please help us save Holly's life! As a rescue we have cancer pups, cardiac cats, neonatal kittens, and everything in between so medical costs are already high, but we couldn't say no to taking Holly back in and trying to save her life even with the extremely high price tag. As long as she is willing to fight, we will fight for her. Will you fight with us? Every little bit helps. If everyone who saw this post gave up a coffee, pop, or beer for a day and donated that money for Holly's care, it would ensure she is treated until she is deemed healthy and adoptable again. Please help us show Holly that her life is worth saving.
Update we are on day 94. We decided to extend Hollys treatment at the advice of her vet. We're hoping it will give her time to continue to improve and hopefully prevent a relapse.
Holly has been slowly getting better during her treatment. She's gained almost 3lbs since she was returned, she can walk, run and even jumps onto the couch!
We've seen a huge improvement this past week she's been more active running around the house and playing with other kittens.
Holly likes to spend her day playing with toy mice, watching bunnies out the window, and cuddling with her fur and human family.
This pretty girl will be one year old on September 4th and because of this treatment she's going to live to see that day! What was once a death sentence, now isn't. Please help us continue her very costly treatment until she is completely cleared of this wretched virus and gains her clean bill of health.
