Hi from Sydney Australia

post #1 of 18

Hi all

I have joined this forum after seeing the open discussion on FIP. I have three Devon Rex's, Kuli, Sage and Max and lost my little girl Minn to FIP six weeks ago. She was 9 months old. We seem to have a wall of silence around this disease in Australia and because of that not much is happening here to change breeding practices. I was devastated at losing her and am keeping my fingers crossed my others will all be ok as while little is known about it, the latest research suggests if cannot be transmitted cat to cat in FIP form. I know however my cats now have coronavirus due to their exposure to Minn. I feel strongly about education in relation to this disease as it is not right that breeders here are treated so badly when word gets out they have had kittens die of FIP. I am not a breeder but recognise it can happen to any breeder at any time and breeders will continue to be labelled if efforts are not made to talk about it openly and break down the wall of silence. It is clear many cats are suffering with this insidious disease and more research is needed to understand it better.

Welcome to the site!

I'm so sorry to hear of the tragic loss of your kitten Minn.

FIP is a horrible disease, and you are so very right...more research and education about the disease needs to happen!
