I have a four month old kitten that my vet believes has FIP. I brought her into the vet because she had a distended (bloated) belly, and the vet did blook work on her and found a titer of 1:400 and a high white blood cell count. With the distended belly, they believe she has the wet form of FIP, giving her only a couple weeks to live. I am devastated, but my main concern now lies with my other cat, who is not yet a year old (about 8 months). I don't know what to do, what to believe. It seems that FIP is a very mysterious disease and no one really knows what to do or how to determine if a cat definitely has it! I am trying my best to keep them seperated, but articles seem to tell me that at this point, the kitten is not as contagious, that there was more concern when she first was infected with FIP, whenever that was. Does anyone know the chances of my 8 month old cat having FIP? What can I do for her? I'm so scared for them both. Has anyone had any experience with the disease or can offer any hope?
