    Very Bad News

    My 10yr old cat Punky has not be eating very well & just seemed to
    want to go off by himself to sleep for the last few days. I took him to the
    Vet today. The Vet suspects FIP (feline Infectious peritonitis). Took x-rays
    of his chest, his body is full of fluid & could barely see the lungs for the
    fluid. She tried to drain some of the fluid to test, but was unsucessful.
    She sent us home with pills(diuretic) to get rid of as much fluid as possible
    to help his breathing. The prognosis is bad, there is no cure.

    Will try to make him comfortable as possible & if he seems to improve
    any, will try the chest x-rays again in hopes of finding another cause
    besides FIP, something operable. (A very long shot) I am devastated.

    I'm sorry about Punky. Hopefully the meds will help and make him comfortable.
    Our goal in life should be - to be as good a person as our dog thinks we are.

    Thank you for the siggy, Michelle!

    Oh I am so very sorry to read this. I HATE FIP, as there is just nothing you can do. Prayers for your Punky to be comfortable.
