Toto is a sweet and funny 1.6 year-old cat with short, stubby legs, a very round face and a great personality. He goes crazy over food and treats, and he loves to chase my hair ties all around the house.
On April 2nd, 2021, Toto was lethargic, refused to eat, and was skinny enough that we could see his bones. The vet had told us that he has Dry Feline Infectious Peritonitis (FIP), a deadly disease that causes inflammation throughout the body including the liver, kidneys, lungs, and brain.
We would like to treat Toto an antiviral drug with an efficacy rate of up to 95% and has been used by many other cat owners whose cats have gone through this deadly disease. It will be a very long journey for Toto in which he will have to be injected with the drug daily for 3 weeks and then fed pills for another 8 weeks for a total of 84 days of treatment. Without this treatment, Toto may only have a few years or even months to live.
The drug has a total cost of $35,000 HKD (not including vet fees and hospital stay fees). We will do everything we can to keep Toto healthy, and we believe he is much too young to pass away from this horrible disease.
He is currently on day 4 of injections and is already doing significantly better. He eats a little more everyday, and he is beginning to play with my hair ties again.
I would appreciate any amount of donations you could provide to help us continue to treat Toto. Please help us give him a chance at a long and happy life. Thank you so much in advance!
Feel free to follow @toto_thekitty for updates on his journey to recovery.

Toto has finished 1 week of injections! Today, we took him to the vet to do another blood test. We are so happy to see his bilirubin levels and globulin levels have drastically improved. He is eating almost 80% of his food on his own, so we have stopped feeding
