I have 2 wonderful cats, Thomas and KeiKei, both are fixed and KeiKei is in perfect health. She is my little girls cats and loves her(the cat does) I think as much as I do. My cat on the other hand is not doing so well. We have been fighting a fungal infection for about 6 weeks now. Today, Thomas was not acting quite right, having a hard time breathing not wanting to get up and move around. So off to the Dr we went. My regular vet was not in so we saw the other one. Thomas did not have a fever, it was actually below normal. He tried to listen to his breathing, but Thomas would not stop purring long enough to let him. So we did x-rays. I went, the vet called me a couple of hours later and told me that he thought he had a very bad case of pneumonia. A little later he called me back and told me that they had drawn blood and that his white cells was like 65,000 and in a normal cat it is like 14,000. He told me then that he thought that he might have 1 of 3 dieases. One if which is FIP. Of course I have searched the web and have done all the reading and know that it is deadly and no cure. I love my cat so much that it breaks my heart to think of him dying, but as much as I love him my little girl loves her cat just as much. It will kill her to lose her cat.I know the chance of other cats getting this is more if there is more than 5 cats in the house. I was wondering if anyone knew what the chances are of KeiKei getting this. I go tomorrow to see the regular vet and that he can tell me more, but I didn't know if anyone here knew. Hopefully I am just worring about this one for nothing and it wont be FIP but right now all I can do is worry.
