Please help me save Garfield's life and spread awareness about Feline Hepatic Lipidosis
Garfield is my pet cat. He means the world to me. Of course him and his younger sister Hera. He is a little lazy and loves his lasagna and hates Monday... So what if he has so many similarities with the comic character which he is honorably named as. He is best orange tabby cat that everyone should have in their life.
He is 9 years old and is my support in my chronic fight against my bi polar disorder. For 9 whole years this big ball of yellow fur kept me healthy with zero symptoms of my condition due to his unconditional love and affection that I was missing for the biggest part of my life. I achieved so many highs during this period because Garfield is there for me no matter what. Now in his time of need I must do the same or even more to save his life from this feline disease which could cost his life.
Today I have an appointment with his vet, his symptoms which started 4 days ago are clearly that of Feline Hepatic Lipidosis, to get his exams and prognosis. His condition is 90% curable if it is prognosed very early and received his treatment as soon as possible.
The biggest hurdle for me this moment is that I can not afford his treatment. Because of the corona virus we are in lock down quarantine in Greece severing my income greatly and his condition is worsen by the minute. He may need to be hospitalized in a vet clinic to receive his treatment.
Thank you for reading this far and I hope you help Garfield in his time of need because I am in desperate situation to battle for his life.
I will update everyone daily about his condition. Thank you everyone in advance for your support even if you do not donate, just share my campaign to save my best friend for the last 9 years.

Just returned for the vet. Garfield's condition is stable. The force feeding is helping, without the need at the moment to insert him a feeding tube to his stomach. The treatment is going well according to the doctor. So we can avoid the hospitalization for the time being.New development in. . . . .
