    I am so sorry to hear the sad news about Luke. Such a sweet & beautiful boy. I remember in one of your videos how sweet & patient
    Luke was with Sissy trying to playing with him.

    I lost my kitty Punky to FIP two years ago. It came on so suddenly & he couldn't recover. I still miss him very much. I hope Luke can be made comfortable as possible
    and doesn't suffer. Prayers for you & your furry gang.

    I'm so sorry your beautiful boy is sick. Enjoy your time together.
    You are both in my thoughts and prayers.
    Ask your vet about microchipping. ~~ It could have saved Kuhio's life. And it cost Halo hers. Consider having your cat tested for Polycystic kidney disease ~~ Rest in peace Willy

    I'm so very sorry to read this; Luke is a very handsome fellow. Your pain is deep, I know; we've all been there and understand. All will be well with Luke; in time, all will be well with you as well. I know that I'll be in your position (my horse, Fudge), so I can well imagine the fear and pain filling your soul. Luke has had a wonderful, loving time on Earth, but it is now time for him to enjoy purrfect health and happiness at Rainbow Bridge, where he'll wait for you. May Luke's Creator bless you with the faith, the courage, and the strength that you need, and then may He lead your heart to peace.

    You all are so kind. Thank you for your caring words; they mean so much to me. We will take Luke to vet tomorrow morning (Mon). (I am crying now just thinking about it.)

    I will not be alone; my finance who loves Luke will be with us. He's as sad as I am about this whole thing. Poor Luke is getting weaker every day; he's pitiful. My big ole handsome boy is deterioating in front of my eyes; he can hardly walk--so sad. I can see that he will be better off but it is so hard. I know in my head it is best for him.... but in my heart I am dreading it so very much. I've already asked vet not to keep us waiting, to do it just as soon as possible. The vet people know me and my pets quite well so I think it will be handled quickly and with care and love. Then we'll bring Luke home and bury him in yard near two other beloved pets. Guess that's it for now.

    I'm so sorry about Luke. FIP isn't really contagious; it's triggered in bugs that already exist in most cats. It's such a devastating condition.

    Rest in peace, dearest Luke.
