Dear Animal Lovers,
We have an urgent story to share with you today. Meet Angel, a one-year-old male cat rescued by his breeders from the Kharkiv region last year.
Angel found himself under the loving care of Anna, who almost got him adopted when she discovered something alarming: Angel had liquid accumulating in his abdomen, and feline infectious peritonitis (FIP) was suspected. It was once considered incurable, but thanks to advancements in treatment, there is hope for Angel.
Due to the difficulties caused by the war, Anna cannot finance the lifesaving treatment that Angel desperately needs. She reached out to us with a heavy heart, seeking whatever help she could get. Recognizing the urgency and the potential to save Angel's life, we have vowed to do everything possible.
Thanks to our local community's incredible support, we raised funds for initial costs, such as diagnostic tests and multiple vet visits. Despite the challenges in directly confirming FIP, the consensus among them is to begin treatment immediately. FIP is nasty and deadly if left untreated and challenging to diagnose with certainty. Based on the collective experience of our veterinarians and the success stories shared by other cat caretakers who have battled FIP, we firmly believe that Angel has a good (although not guaranteed) chance of overcoming this disease.
