Hi everyone, I'm writting this because I need advise on how to handle a FIP diagnosis. My 4 month persian kitten was recently "diagnosed" and I feel like my whole world is crashing. She is so sweet and loving and I 'm so sad for her, she's a baby , my little baby. I know there is nothing I can do but to enjoy the time I have left with her, trying to make her feel extremely loved and comfortable. I'm grateful for getting to know her and the small time we got to spend together and I know she knows I love her so much.
The reason I'm writting this post other than to let my toughts out is to get advice on how to cope with the pain and fear I'm feeling.

I am currently experiencing a similarly situation. My Yorkie, Jolie, is very sick right now. I expect her to go to the bridge soon. I have not been out of her sight for days. I want her to know that I am with her. I feel so empty right now. It’s tough, I know. Hugs

I am so sorry for the devastating diagnosis of your loved one. I don't know much about FIP, but I know others here have talked about going through that with their cats and I think you will find some support and information here 😉 Thinking of you during this difficult time.
xoxo, Arby's mom

Pam, my heart hurts for you and your sweet baby. I lost my beautiful Nugget in May from this horrible disease. He died 29 days following the diagnosis (the time varies with all kitties) and he was two and a half years old. I am retired and was able to spend lots of time with him for which I am very thankful.
To use an age old phrase, I think we all fly by the seat of our pants at a time like this. I cried and prayed and cried some more. Your vet can advise you on how to keep your little one comfortable. Just take it one day at a time and love your little one as you have been doing. I will be praying for you both. If I can help in any way please e-mail me. I think it helps just having someone to listen who has been through this.
