Hello my name is Aston and I’m a 4 year 9 month old Maine Coon. My Mommy, Debbie, loves me very very much. I have just been diagnosed with FIP (Feline Infectious Peritonitis). Unfortunately the only way to treat it is with very special treatment everyday for 84 days and it is very expensive, which is not covered by my insurance which my Mommy pays every year to try to keep me safe, and lots more blood tests and scans too. I also have to have tablets for my liver and B12.
If I don’t have this treatment then it will be fatal.
I have had lots of tests done, CT scans, ultrasounds and many blood tests and it was confirmed on Monday (11.01.2021) that I am very poorly. (I know I don’t look it in my picture, but that is Mommy’s favourite one). My Mommy just keeps holding me tight and crying.
I came to live with my Mommy under very special circumstances, you see she had always wanted a big fluffy Maine Coon, just like me, but everyone said no. Then her Daddy was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer in 2016 and only 2 weeks later she was told he would die. Her Daddy told her to get the baby she had always wanted when he had gone, he died that week, then my Mommy found me and here I am. Now I am poorly and I don’t want to leave my Mommy because she will be very sad. I know she has other babies to love, and she does love them very much, but I don’t want to leave her. I am only young too. I really really need this treatment to stay with my Mommy but she needs lots of help from you for me to stay. I like to be on my Mommy’s lap and at bedtime I sleep on her head so she stays warm and loved.
Please, please help us to get this treatment we would both be eternally grateful forever.
All funds raised will go towards my treatment, medication and any other vet fees not covered by insurance to make me better.
Aston's treatment is based on weight, as he gets better and gains weight his treatment costs will increase also. He is currently on 3.2ml and a vial of typically 5ml costs £70. That's equating to roughly £45 per day to keep my baby alive., plus syringes and any other medications that may be required.
Please try to help me keep Aston alive with this treatment anything no matter how small is fully appreciated more than we could ever express.
Thankyou for reading Aston's story, please also share if possible.
Stay safe ❤️
