TOFU - Sick kitten with FIP needs support for treatment

Help save Tofu, with the treatment against FIP (Feline Infectious Perionitis). Thanks!

Tofu has been part of our family since November 2022, when she was adopted with the support of Associação "Patinhas sem Lar", from Espinho. As a baby kitten, Tofu was always energetic, sociable and very loving, always looking for treats.
Everything changed last week, when she started showing signs of thinness and lost some of his energy and joy.
It was then that she was diagnosed with Feline Infectious Peritonitis (FIP), a disease considered deadly until recently, because fortunately there is a treatment based on injections, still in the experimental phase, but with a considerable success rate. It lasts for a minimum of 84 days with daily dosing without interruption.

It's been 3 days since the start of the treatment and Tofu is already showing improvements, she regained some of her energy and some weight, although she's still quite thin (weight on January 8th: 1.20 kg).

(Tofu on the day she was diagnosed with PIF, very skinny and weak)

The treatment is painful for Tofu and very expensive. Costs have been estimated at around €2000, including the purchase of medicines, supplements, exams and consultations. Thanks to the generosity of several people, we have already managed to raise approximately €350 through Facebook and Instagram.

We started this campaign hoping to raise some more funds to help with Tofu's treatment expenses.

About the author

My name is Manuel, and together with Ana, we have been looking for ways to help Tofu recover from this illness.
All care and treatment are very expensive and for that reason we decided to open this fundraiser to help support Tofu's expenses.
I've been with PPL for a few years now, having participated in some donations, however this is the first time I'm doing a fundraiser.
I want to thank you in advance for your attention and support.
From us and Tofu, a big thank you!

Budget and due dates

Tofu's treatment started on Friday (01/06/2023) and lasts for 84 days. Thus, the end of this campaign would be on 03/31/2023, the day on which Tofu treatment ends. However, the platform rules require a maximum limit of 60 days, thus being set for 03/10/2023.

In case there is money left over from donations, this will be given to Patinhas Sem Lar, Espinho, so that other animals can be treated.
