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.
Current update is we are on day 31 and Holly is doing better and bloodwork is showing better signs. The treatment is typically 84 days but possibly longer the key to this treatment is not to stop sooner and be extremely strict with giving her meds. Holly is also getting Clindamycin and using 1 bottle of that every 3 days. Bills are adding up but this will all be worth it to see Miss Holly get better again. Her foster mom is dedicating all her time to help Holly while working. We have volunteers coming during the times shes away to help give Holly meds. Many volunteers are working hard to help Holly because every progress this sweet girl makes shows us we are doing the right thing by following our hearts and not choosing to end her life early. Please help us continue to help Holly. We will post updates as they come :)
