Hi, my name is Elizabeth, I come from Croatia, and me and my partner have recently adopted a kitten (Labuna) from a shelter. Immediately, after seeing my partner, Labuna jumped across a tiny box where she was put along with dozen more cats and started looking for all the ways to grab our attention. She chose us, and after adopting her, there hasn't passed one day without her constantly being by our sides, cuddling for hours and sleeping next to us. But ever since we got her, her health slowly started deteriorating. In less than a month she developed numerous symptoms like persistent conjunctivitis, loss of appetite, gingivitis, lethargy and recently her abdomen filling up with heavy amounts of fluid. Because of that fluid our vet strongly suspects that Labuna is infected with Coronavirus that causes FIP or FeLV which is feline leukemia virus. Our vet said that the cat needs immediate diagnostics and to start with the appropriate therapy as soon as possible. The problem is, diagnostics costs about 160 USD and then the treatment for FIP, which is more probable to be the case, costs about 2000 USD, and for FeLV is somewhat less than that amount. The problem is, for diagnosis we need to sedate our cat and the last time she was sedated she contracted diarrhea that she did not yet recovered from. If we put her to go through the same thing again, we must be sure that we will have financial resources to continue her therapy, otherwise we won't do it, because if we're not able to pay the therapy, we want to make her short life as painless as we possibly can.
We need the funds as soon as possible, because it improves the chances of our kitten to recover.
Thank you all in advance for your help!
