I am sorry to report that my 11 yr old Luke cat has FIP and liver failure and is not eating. (I was shocked when the vet told me) I've been wondering why he looked as if he was gaining weight (bloated) yet he was not eating much at all. I took him to the vet on Wed Aug 8 and he did various tests and xrays and gave me his opinion and some meds. Yes, I trust his diagnosis.
The bottom line is that my Luke is very sick and has eaten very little for 5 days, is lethargic and sleeps mostly. He looks as if he has swallowed a basketball. I've been giving him med for fluids (and some other meds) but they dont help very much. He has gotten down a tiny amount of chicken broth today. All he does is sleep. I will not put him through a long term of discomfort. I know what needs to be done and I'm working up to it. It's just so hard as many or most of you know. Just wanted you to know.... Kay in NC
