We AT SQUARE PAWS proudly support ZenByCat,
a nonprofit dedicated to funding FIP research.
What is FIP?
Feline Infectious Peritonitis (FIP) is a disease that kills 1 in 100 to 1 in 300 of all cats under ages 3-5. The incidence can be five to 10 times greater among young cats coming from catteries and shelters. FIP is virtually 100% fatal, and there is no treatment or cure. FIP can manifest suddenly—weeks, months or even years after initial infection. Therefore, cat lovers usually experience the heartbreak of this disease long after they have developed strong emotional bonds with their pets.
Why do we support Zen By Cat and FIP research?
The founder, Peter, learned first-hand about the devastation of FIP after losing a precious adopted kitten named Miss Bean. There is nothing worse than seeing an innocent animal suffer.
We believe in hope, we root for life. We believe in the sweet moment of connection between a human and their furry companion.
