My cat's name is Bardak (which means 'cup' in English). He was recently diagnosed with Feline Infectious Peritonitis (FIP), an incurable disease until just a couple years ago.
When Bardak first got sick, we tested him for many things. All were inconclusive. He couldn't walk, eat, drink or breathe. He lost almost an entire kilo in 5 days. The vets told me that he would die and I should consider euthanasia. I stayed up all night that night educating myself on how to make him comfortable and how to cope however, I stumbled upon a Facebook community called "FIP Warriors." This is where I learned about GS-441524 which can be used to cure Bardak! I noticed that treatment was extremely expensive and I again felt defeated but decided to use what I had to get the medicine anyways. Since getting his first injection, he's been improving every day! He's gained 500 grams at least and he's basically back to being his crazy self.
Bardak started his treatment on December 23rd. The treatment requires a daily injection, that increases in size as he continues to gain weight, and will last for 84 days at least. I am expecting to need, at minimum, 3,000 dollars. I know I should have been more financially prepared before adopting an animal but he needed a home and I needed the companionship. I hate asking for this kind of help but I want him to live SO much. I love him so much.
