FIP

I only spent about 5 minutes researching FIP, just enought to overstimulate my overactive imagination. My daughter lost a precious baby after maybe a month or two. What puzzles me is this, : she thinks that her remaining cat has to be an 'only child' for the rest of his life. She is not the type to overreact, so I thik she might be misled on this one. I volunteer with an orginization at Petsmart; Idon't think they routinely test for this. What I've read is so confusing; however, I think there are meds in Europe and Asia that may not be available in the US. I will look in to this.

Thanks again.

I don't know anything about FIP or the symptoms, but with Ariel's fever, I'd first think some kind of infection. The kitties and I are purring and praying for her speedy recovery.

I really don't think it's FIP. I foster for a rescue group too and we actually do test for it even though the test is not 100% accurate. But Ariel is a housecat and so it's pretty unlikely that she would have FIP. And FIP is treatable. One of the cat blogging cats has FIP, I just can't remember which at the moment! He's had it for awhile. I'll try an find out who. Karen would remember.

Hi, We don't know much about FIP, but I am an FIV positive kitty with IBS. I was rescued (a former feral) by my mommy off the street 2 years ago and although I get ear infections and stuff more than other cats, I'm a happy active boy.
I believe that FIP is treatable (but don't know how she'd get it since she is indoor only) and know emma is right about another bloggy cat having it but can't remember who.
We are praying for a simple diagnosis for Ariel and hope she is back on your lap soon. Sending comforting and healing thoughts your way.
