Mom talked to vet again today cause I am not responding well to antibiotics. Come to find out I have high titers for FIP. Thats not good!!! Some signs point to yes I have it and some point to No I dont have it. High titer says yes, none responsive to antibiotics says yes, diarrhea says yes, .... but I am still alive after dealing with diarrhea for about 9 months and FIP kills quick ... 2-3 months. The vet put me on prednisone again but a higher dosage, and considering changing my antibiotic to flagyl. Mom will talk to my normal vet in the a.m. to get more info ,,, this was just the other vet in office.
Mom is pretty sad now thinking about it. She hates to see me like this .. I am so skinny .. she calls it cruelty case skinny (or darn near it). I ate really well today. But I am still leaking from the behind when I lay down. I had a slimy semi firm poo too along with diarrhea today. I hate all these meds though. I avoid mom at all costs. She tells me she is sorry but its for my own good. But I dont know ... all this stuff she is shoving in me is not fun. Nor is it fun when she wipes my bottom. It hurts!!! Mom told me she asked God to help us ... I hope he hears her. She sat on floor and talked to me for a bit while I sat in the recliner ... told me how much she loves me. But I am still mad her ... I even growled at her when I had enough of her petting me.
Please continue to pray for me!!!

p.s. here is a link about FIP if you want to read about it
