Feline Colony Ostia Antica (RM) Medical Expenses

€1,059 of €1,500 goal

Raised by 15 people in 3 months
Hi - I'm Ziggy, I'm one and a half years old  and I'm in hospital with hepatic and urinary complications. I am also FELV positive. I am helping Mum (Mary) fundraise to help pay the medical expenses  she has incurred alone this year for myself and 6 of the total of 33 cats that she feeds and takes care of.  The others currently needing, and that have needed, medical attention and recovery in hospital are: Elton - 3 years old (food poisoning - 5 days, blood tests and medication) - he is better now: Roxy - 2 years old (serious eye infection and four visits/control by a specialist, blood tests and medication lasting 2 months: Roswell - approx. 2 years old (who was dumped a month and a half ago and who has major allergies and now needs more blood tests and expensive medicine everyday). Probably that's why they dumped him!; Ryan - very old and deaf and who has periodic breakdowns requiring medication. Domi - old and deaf and has kidney failure and ongoing respiratory problems, requiring frequent recovery for aerosol (no way this can be done at home, she is vicious!), medication and renal food: and, Floyd - 4 years old and sadly FIV/FELV positive. His owner doesn't care about him, never had him fixed and now he has many issues including arthritis and respiratory problems and a serious eye infection. He has had blood tests and recovery and now ongoing medicine. Floyd won't last an awful lot longer but we love him and want to help him stay "well" and be happy for what time he has left.
17 of the 33 cats (can't afford all) need antiflea application once a month and 4 have needed FIV/FELV testing and vaccination against FELV.
Mum can manage the food and she produces a calendar each year which over the last 3 years has helped considerably with the veterinary bills.
But the start to 2019 has been altogether too much for her!!
She did a fundraising through YouCaring three years ago and you all helped us very much. Sadly some of those cats have died and more have been dumped on her (including me!!)
The veterinarians are very kind and give Mum a discount and don't require immediate payment but she still has to pay of course.
If you can help us again we would all be very grateful.
All these cats have been dumped here at some point in time and are all sterilised except Floyd. Mum has also rehomed many cats and kittens over years. 13 of the 33 are feral cats and live outside all the time not far from us inside/outside cats in the piazza.
We live in Piazza della Rocca,  Borgo Medievale of Ostia Antica, Rome/Italy
