This is Ollie.
I adopted Ollie back in July when he was only 11 weeks old. As cliche as this may sound, I knew he was special the minute I got to hold him for the first time. To say he means the world to me is an understatement. He's one of the sweetest cats I've ever owned and met. He makes me laugh with his silly personality and he warms my heart with his cuddles. He's my little shadow and I couldn't imagine my life without him.
Today, I found out that Ollie has FIP, otherwise known as Feline Infectious Peritonitis. Simply explained, FIP is a viral disease of cats caused by certain strains of a virus called the feline coronavirus. There is a treatment that could help Ollie overcome this, however, it is expensive. With the holidays around the corner and a pandemic looming over the world, I understand that money is tight for everyone right now, however, I would appreciate any help I could get. I'm not sure if the treatment will work for Ollie, but I believe I need to at least try.
Again, I want to assure anyone who makes a donation that the money will be used to cover the costs of the treatment, supplies, and shipping costs. I'm hoping to begin the treatment process this weekend and anyone's generosity will help alleviate some of the emotional and financial stress. If you're unable to donate I would still appreciate it if you could share this with anyone who you think would be willing to help us out. Thank you for taking the time to read this and thank you for your help.
