Maya's is just two years old and has been diagnosed with Dry ocular/neuro FIP. She is strong willed & I want to help her fight this disease

by Irene Leighton in Manchester, England, United Kingdom

Maya Moon Dust was one of three kittens caught as part of a TNR program in 2018, aged approx. 7/8 weeks old.

Her siblings and Maya went to a charitable adoption centre; where, on health check and neutering the vets discovered she had a badly fractured jaw and needed to have a piece of her jaw and respective teeth removed.  It is not known how this happened, whether it was an accident or by the hand of a human but Maya was deemed ‘feral’ because of her fear and mistrust of humans and so I was asked to take her. 

Maya is a loving a beautiful soul, a real scaredy cat but when she comes for cuddles she flips over and purrs like a little train.

In November 2020 Maya presented with Uveitis so was taken to the vets immediately and on examination the vets feared the underlying cause was probably dry FIP.

There is a treatment available which has yielded a good success rate (95%); but as with all treatment, it is very expensive.

Costs are not exact, as your cat responds to treatment and gains weight dosages need to be adjusted to maintain the effectiveness. There are a variety of treatments depending on the symptoms presented by your feline friend and the course lasts for 84 days (twelve weeks).

On estimation (very approx guide) costs are approximately £60 per day for 84 days. That’s an approximate cost in excess of £5000. This does not include lab works, blood tests, needles, syringes, supplements and so on.

Every life matters and if treatment is available I feel we should try to cure wherever possible. 

I want Maya to continue her journey, for her to have the chance of a happy life.

Can you help her through this journey ?

We will be posting regular updates on Maya's Journey Facebook page, how she is feeling, reacting, symptoms, what food we are trying, what supplements she is being give and the costs for tests, treatment etc.

This will help others understand what to expect, how to help our furbabies and most of all hoping to see Maya graduate happy and healthy at the other end of her treatment.

If you could spare the price of a cup of coffee, it would all help towards her treatment. 

Thank you
