Brandy
Sadly our fears were correct with Brandy.  She puffed up with full blown FIP.   We took her back to the vet and got new blood work and had the fluid tapped in her belly.  All of her clinical symptoms, blood work, and abdominal fluid point towards FIP.      Yesterday, to our complete heartbreak,  her condition began to deteriorate and the time had come to make a decision.  I held her as she returned to her make her.  She purred to the end.
Jill - Raleigh  & April from Orlando
Suzanne - I am not sure what state she is from.
Suzanne from Baltimore
There were so many others, please  forgive me if I did not picture you. Thank you so much to everyone that came!

A cute video of Brandy taken a few months ago when she was healthy.
Snicker lucked out and did not have to have surgery, YEAH! After the vets did a CT scan they felt the object/spot was so small that they want to wait to do surgery.  They felt that antibiotics appeared to be resolving what ever it is. They want us to continue antibiotics and we will do another CT in a few months.
Major is doing well.  He has had 3 chemo treatments so far. His weight loss has stopped.  He has not regained weight but has stabilized.  He is eating and appears to be doing well.
FIP is a horrible disease that has no test that is 100% positive. There is no cure.  It is diagnosed based upon symptoms.  Putting it in simple terms,  if your cat has a fever that does not go away with antibiotics,  blood work that has high protein, high globulin and low albumin, and your cat has fluid in their abdomen your odds are high that you are dealing with FIP or something else really bad. Here is a link to more info about FIP.
