So, my 9 month old cat has a fatal disease. It's called FIP. Just went to the vet and found out today. They still have to run blood tests but the vet is very experienced and this disease is rare and has obvious, unique symptoms so it's definitely that. He hasn't really eaten for 2 weeks yet his belly is all bloated and his fur isnt shiny and soft like it used to be. Today and yesterdag, I found him in the cathouse I got him that hes NEVER used. He refused to come out for a while. I think he is picking this place to die. I'm fucking broken. If anyone has any personal experience with FIP, any sort of remedy that worked, please share. I can't handle this.
>should of kept him inside or got him vaccinated
Where does it say the cat was outside or she didn't vaccinate him you fat faggot? Vaccination also isn't a 100% chance of protecting against the diseases nigger lover.
He is vaccinated and if you knew the most basic info about FIP you would know its a virus that stems from the cat having the flu when they are tiny kittens. Its not even something they pick up from outside. I rescued him from a shelter and he already had the flu so I really think you're fucking retard and an asshole for blaming me.
Nah, I agree that the above poster blaming the FIP on and jumping to conclusions about vaccinations and outdoor cats is retarded, but I also am strongly against keeping cats outdoors and letting them free-roam. It's not just a few people, it's a pretty common stance.
Consider putting your cat down. The end is not always pleasant as things tend to get worse. Sorry OP.
Vaccines do not prevent FIP.
Neither does keeping it inside, actually. Cats get this because of immunodeficiency, or mutations of the virus. Being exposed to the virus is mere chance, with little mitigation being possible.
Letting your cat freeroam is bad. Jumping to the conclusion that this cat got FIP from freeroaming is retarded, though.
Sorry to hear about your cat! I'd probably put him down and make him cozy as possible in the meantime.
I'm sort of in the same kind of others with "don't let your cat outside". I don't give people shit for it constantly but it's not something that I suggest.
My parents learned the hard way not to let the cats outside. Now they have to deal with him getting cabin fever during the winter. Just aside from health risks and environmental, it's just easier to keep them inside.
