Arrival Story:
I was ready for another kitten, and called Linus' breeders. They had this beautiful brown tortie girl for me, and I named her Vada after the "My Girl" movie. A little over a month after she moved in, she started developing some health issues. Initially the vets thought she had a portosystemic shunt... but her liver issue resolved on it's own and her bloodwork changed pointing to FIP. The breeder's vet was able to get her into a clinical trial, and she moved back with the breeder, but sadly Vada took a turn for the worst and had to be euthanized due to FIP Nov. 2, 2011. She was only 9 months old.

FIP is caused by corona virus. Up to 80% of cats will test positive for corona virus. For reasons not understood, in about 5% of cats, the virus mutates into FIP which is 100% fatal. FIP has been identified since the early 1960's but is still very poorly understood. There is no definitive test, no treatment or cure, and no vaccine (the vaccine available is very controverisal and generally not recommended.) FIP typically strikes kittens or occasionally elderly cats. The WINN Foundation is working on FIP research with the assistance of the Bria Fund. Unfortunately research and funds are just not there for cats like they are for dogs.
