Atlas's FIP Battle

On January 1st, 2020 I went to one of our local shelters to adopt a kitten. I ended up falling in love with a striped tabby kitten (Atlas) and his black-fur brother (Tadashi). I went home with both of them that day. Atlas's name at the shelter was actually Hiro, from Big Hero 6. But as I watched him, I realized how smart and adventurous he was. He loved exploring so I changed his name to Atlas.

Atlas loves to cuddle with his brother. They enjoy taking naps and cleaning each others ears. We have a sunroom and he spends most of his time in there lounging in the sun. He also enjoys wrestling with Tadashi. They will be relaxing one second, then the next one of them is trampling the other one to the ground.

I recently lost my calico cat, Sydney to Lymphoma back on September 24th. I just got done paying for her vet bills and now Atlas is sick and the bills keep piling up. I do not have the funds to pay for all of his medical expenses too. His vet bills alone were $2500. We are just now ready to start treatment which will be another $3000+. I have been working 7 days a week to pay for all of these bills.

Atlas goes to Bradford Park Veterinary Clinic in Springfield, MO. We have done blood tests, x-rays, lymph node, liver, intestine and kidney biopsies. From everything done so far. It is looking like he has Feline infectious peritonitis (FIP), which is very fatal. We have finally completed the testing and everything points to FIP. Everything else has been ruled out. So we are going to start treatment with life saving medication. I am asking for ANY AMOUNT of money you can spare. I know Christmas is coming up, but Christmas is a time of giving. It's the season of caring and compassion. And all I want for Christmas is to save my cats life. $1, $5, $100. Any amount will help. And if you can't donate, please, please share. Tadashi would be heartbroken without his brother, and so would I.
