Urgent Appeal for Help – We need a few good people with some good hearts <3
Save this gorgeous feline TARA from suffering a slow painful death.
Tara is a 4-year old female cat (in Malta) who suffers from a serious illness caused by a type of virus (FIP), which if left untreated, will cause suffering and is almost always fatal. Luckily, she has been rescued and homed by a generous and dedicated adopter.
Feline infectious peritonitis (FIP) is a viral disease caused by a feline coronavirus that affects wild and domestic cats. This type of coronavirus is different from the coronavirus that causes COVID-19 in people.
Feline coronavirus is very common and usually doesn't cause any serious issues, aside from mild diarrhea. But when the feline coronavirus changes to a specific strain of the coronavirus, FIP can develop. In about 10% of infected cats, the virus will multiply and mutate, resulting in an infection known as feline infectious peritonitis virus (FIPV) that spreads throughout the cat’s body. It can cause an extreme inflammatory reaction in the tissues surrounding the abdomen, kidney, or brain.
Although FIP is not believed to be contagious, it is a very serious disease.
When a cat gets FIP, it is progressive and almost always fatal.
The total cost of this treatment amounts to €2500 which the adopter cannot handle by herself. We have to collect €3000 since the GoGetFunding platform charges a considerable percentage.
We desperately need your generous contributions in order to raise funds to purchase the course of vaccinations which will treat Tara’s condition and enable her to live a normal, healthy life.
The treatment, so far, is working and yielding promising results!!!
Any contribution – of any amount whatsoever – will be highly appreciated.
