When we(me and my husband) took Küllü(Ashy) from the street at the end of this November, she was 2-3 months old. She was so scared, probably traumatized, and full of parasites. After the vet, we brought her our home and it took two days for her to get out of the box i made for her to sleep and walk around. Couple days after she embraced me as her mom and never wanted to leave my chest again. Those were the days we cultivated a really deep connection, and helped each other cling to life again..
Although she got better psychologically, she was still so skinny. And also we realized that she had a bit lack of vision. Sometimes she was hitting walls while running. But the vet said she seems fine and its possible that she was born that way. Unfortunately one month later, at the end of December, she got so ill and had a serum therapy to live. In this period, while going to vet every night for a week, she got so stressed because of the needles. At the end we managed to keep her alive and healthier but her psychology was so down again. On the February a white spot occurred in the center of her left eye. And before we understood what’s happening, it started on her right eye too. And she lost her vision nearly %90 just in weeks. The vet said she might have fip (terminal illness among cats) but she didn’t have other symptoms so he didn’t want to give serums directly and instead recommended some syrups to keep her immune system strong. The vet also said her eye disease is treatable but anesthesia might harm her immune system at this point and she might get much worse.
On the beginning of May, the situation was much worse. She wasn’t eating much, moving or walking much. Instead she was sleeping all day. We took her to vet again to have some idea about the drift. After seeing her test results doctor said although they cant be %100 sure before the autopsy, this seems fip and we should be ready for the coming death because there was no treatment..
That week was one of the worst weeks of my life. I’ve watched Küllü getting worst day by day with the knowledge of that I’m going to loose my baby. She even got balance problems which is a neurological symptom and shows that the illness is in advanced level.. But miraculously, we discovered a medicine few days ago called “Mutian”. And read from other cat owners who had suffered from the same disease and got much better, even defeated the illness! This one little hope to see her better made us so happy, and thanks to our friends help, we managed to buy the first bottle. The medicine is to be given through the injections per day, and one bottle goes for one week. Because in neurological symptoms weight in kg needs 0,6ml injection and Küllü is 1.3kg for now. After the first injection Küllü got up, started to walking better and developed appetite! After the third, she started playing again. And finally we have a real hope for her to live.
The only problem is one vial(5ml) of this medicine is 380$ (https://www.mutianstore.com/collections/all/products/critical-condition-fip-supplements-5ml) and for a real treatment she has to use this at least for 12 weeks. With our monthly small income, its not possible for us to maintain this treatment. We just want to give our baby healthier and longer life. Small or big any support means hope for us and means more days for our baby to live. Please help us, thank you.
