Bombay's Life (FIP Positive) Matters!
Hi my name is Felicia and I am raising funds to save Bombay! He was just diagnosed with Ocular and Neurological FIP (Kitty Coronavirus). Advised a death sentence after two vet appointments, a referral to a vet ophthalmologist, not to mention over $750- in bills. After seeing the ophthalmologist I was told to take my precious kitty back to its primary doctor for more tests. I asked myself, why, if FIP is fatal and you have never seen a kitty survive? Only 2 to 12 mos. to live. Any cat adopted in our household is a family member and I love Bombay. He was a sweet, well-mannered, fun-loving boy before he fell ill. He had a swollen eye, he was going blind, bumping into walls, disoriented, and on the decline. My heart is broken. With a 10-year-old that just broke two bones in his wrist (a problem not solved and making weekly trips to Madera Children's hospital), a father just starting dialysis, a husband rushed to ER two times in the last week and a half, and a kitty dying at home I am beside myself. I love my Bombay, rescued him, to give him a good life, and now having to face a fatal disease I am devastated to say the least. I woke up Wednesday morning 3/1/2023 and began to google anything and everything for help. I still am in shock at my finding. Fieldhaven Feline Center FIP popped up. I quickly put in a call, for an opinion and some guidance about a treatment that has been saving thousands of FIP kitty lives, and was told YES the success rate is very high. With accolades about this treatment, from our family vet (who was on vacation for 3 weeks at the time Bombay became ill), and the help of Fieldhaven Feline Center I decided to start Bombay on his journey! There's hope! There's help! I drove Bombay 2 1/2 hours to Lincoln, CA., four hours after my initial conversation with Joy, to get the treatment started within 15 minutes from the time I arrived. My little Bombay is on his way. He now has a chance to live and my heart now has hope! Unfortunately, the bills are beginning to roll in and it is putting a financial strain on my family. The treatment ranges anywhere from $2,000- on up depending on weight, how badly the kitty/cat has been affected, and the type of FIP. I ask that you please consider donating to help my family save Bombay's life and prove to the veterinary world that FIP is no longer a death sentence. You can follow Bombay's progress and see the progress of so many other beautiful furry souls on the Fieldhaven Feline Center website or on FB. Also, check out www.FieldHaven.com/FIP and click on the FIP stars for those in treatment or those in observation! Any donation is appreciated and if you cannot donate please say a prayer for my baby that he will be able to finish his costly, but worth-it treatment, with the hopes that he will have a chance of not being taken by this terrible disease. Please give, so many others can have hope, too, by proving that their furry loved ones can survive FIP and can have a chance to live. All funds donated will go to the cost of the medicine needed for Bombay's 84 injection treatment. Any additional funds will be donated to the Fieldhaven Feline Center to continue on with their amazing work saving so many animals' lives, making so many people happy, and giving unconditionally from the heart to those without a voice. Fieldhaven Feline Center is Pawsitively making a difference in today's world and you can too!
