Dear Lex I am so sorry the disease is very hard to diagnose sometimes unless it is in the wet form where the cat's stomach is filled with fluid I had a lot of experience doing cat rescue many years ago and sad to say came across quite a few stray cats with FIP there is little they can do for it.
The dry form of FIP can be in the brain if I remember correctly it has been a long time since I have had to deal with this and myself, I will do some research on but sadly it is not one that is really treatable and I'm so sorry if you lost your baby to this.

Sadly I do have experience with FIP. My beautiful Nugget died just over a month ago. My vet told me he had FIP but then kept insisting we try everything to keep him alive, that she might be wrong. I kept telling her to let him go and she said no, let's keep trying, that he was not in any pain. 28 days after diagnosis I woke up to see him trying to walk but failing. I immediately rushed him to another vet, Dr. V who had seen him when my vet had been away for a few days and she euthanized him. FIP had affected his brain.
If I had known what I know now, I would have gone to another vet and had him euthanized when he was diagnosed. I knew there was no cure. I transferred all my pet records to Dr V.
She told me it is better to let them go one day too soon than one day too late. There is no sure way to know they are not suffering. In the end I know he did.
I know what you are going through and I am more sorry than words can say. If you would like to e-mail me please do. I will keep you both in my prayers.
