O Oscar!!!! Your a heartbreaker. O' I hope it's not FIP. Poor baby. I'm at a loss of words.

She drained off about 50ml of fluid from his abdomen to make breathing easier, and put him on a pure coconut oil supplement to replace the lost proteins (something about the molecule size apparently).
He is eating well now, no doubt because of the corticosteroids and his bowel habits are perfectly normal now too. He's as happy and cuddly as usual so we'll just take every day as it comes.

Sometimes kitties are wiser than humans...he is not worried about tomorrow, or thinking about the scary dog. Little Oscar knows he is loved, and fed, and warm. Enjoy each moment with this precious angel.
Hugs and kisses to you, Oscar. I'm glad you are in good hands with Naya, and a knowledgeable vet. Sweet little baby, I will keep praying for a miracle cure, while realizing the fact that you found Naya is already a miracle in itself!
