FIP: Wet, Dry or Combination and Age of Cat Survey/Poll

I am doing an independent data collection/study to see which type of FIP is most common, wet/effusive, dry/neurological, or both wet and dry.  If you have/had a cat(s) diagnosed with FIP, please submit your response(s) below.  I will collect data for 30 days and post the results.

    Awwww, I love that you did that in his memory and that you want to help the research too. They are so close and funding is vital. Hugs and my condolences on losing Murry 🙁

    Tami, this is just terrible. I hope you have found some comfort in the FIP Fighters group and I’m sorry these medications are just getting their start…all we can do now is hope they get approved fast so that this nonsense can stop!

  3. October 25, 2017 at 8:16 pm

    Joan, no doubt he too was exposed to corona…they all are sadly…but I’m so happy that you did not lose them both to this wretched disease. 10 years is old for a wet care of FIP as I’m seeing in my poll results. I’m sorry this happened to you 🙁

    Jessica, your story breaks my heart. That poor kitten had everything going wrong for her it seems. I hope that the breeder took responsibility; not that it changes anything or heals your broken heart, but this wicked disease needs to be stopped. How wonderful your last cat gave you 22 years! I can only hope to be able to say that one day too. Hugs and well wishes that this is the LAST time you ever have to deal with FIP!

    Paulette, that is a horribly devastating story about your cats! Were Scooter and Misty siblings? I cannot get over that THREE cats…seemingly unrelated, ALL had wet FIP. Let’s hope that these two drugs from the trial are the answer! Our Luna is doing well still on the second drug…we watch her closely, but to date, she still has no signs of disease. Did you ever get any more kitties after all of this? I assume this all happened rather recently? Hugs to you and paws crossed that any future cats live long and healthy lives for you!

    It is so hard dealing losing a fur baby but even harder losing 3 fur babies within 2 month span. Our first and oldest age 7 was ill, high fever, soreness, not eating, etc. eventually hospitalized put on steroids, IV, and hospital watch. Upon bringing her home after 3 days she got worse that same evening shortness of breath so had to take back to Vet and upon seeing her we had to put our Misty down. Not a word was mentioned or even heard of this virus F I P. Not wanting our Scooter to be alone we adopted a kitten at age 10 weeks. Had her boostered and that same evening became uncomfortable in pain badly and high fever to which they said was reaction from the booster shot so was put on steroids. After about 10 days she seemed fine. So had our Scooter boostered and result was the same high fever, not eating, not active so they thought the same was with him from booster shot. Until he was not getting any better fever never came down, not active, not eating, very high fever so went to vet placed on steroids again to which was not the answer. Upon having 1 die and our kitten with high fever we had both the kitten and Scooter examined and the kitten was way worse then Scooter age 6. That was when we were told about this virus F I P. If we had been told right after our first Misty dieing we would of never gotten a kitten to be put in this situation as we thought we were doing good to give her a happy healthy caring life with us. They finally came to the conclusion that yes Scooter age 6 more then likely had F I P. With no test to prove just waited as both kitten and Scooter were hospitalized for 3 days and watched. The morning we were to bring them home They called and told us that our 6 years old Scooter had passed and the best thing they could do now was to have us take both he and the kitten over to PEI Vet School and have autopsy done on Scooter and test further on the kitten Report came back as nothing new on the kitten and Scooter YES did have WET F I P as lungs were full. So not wanting to have a small kitten going through this unbearable illness we had to put the dear little most loveable kitty down also. Still waiting on word from her autopsy. SO we had 3 fur babies die within 2 months from F I P age 7, age 6 and 4 1/2 months old.
    I will never be so happy to learn that they have found a test to find out if they have this virus and even better to know they have found a cure… RIP Misty, Scooter & Caycee

    I got penny in march. She was a siames seal point. I fell in love immediately. I had lost a Siamese of 22 years that looked like her. Penny had worms. She was treated and fine. Than giardia was discovered when she seemed to get worse. After treatment she seemed better. Then I noticed the weight dropping and she was lethargic. Back to the vets for a full panel blood test. Corona was discovered. By then she was also anemic and had jaundice. She was given antibiotics and a grim future. It had developed to wet fip… in her abdomen. I went back several times and had more medicines prescribed and had fluid removed from her belly and tried homeopathic remedies and vitamins and high calorie supplements. Nothing mattered. Nothing worked. The disease took penny Friday September 22nd. I held her in my arms as she took her last breath. I am destroyed. I researched night and day… had false hope. She was 9 months old when she died.. such a short time here on this Earth. I had never encountered this disease before but it is brutal. I pray a cure is found. No one should ever have to suffer like this human or animal.

    Lost Scout at 10 y/o to effusive wet FIP. Her male sibling (I adopted them together) lived another 9 years and died of old age just short of his 19th birthday. Of course the assumption has always been that he too was exposed to the corona virus.

    Our baby Murry was 1yr 5mo when we had to put him down. Murry went from 100% to 0% in just 2 short weeks. Which was the worst 2 weeks of my life. He was the best cat any one could ever ask for! There is not a day that goes by that I don’t think of him. We have opened a food truck in our angels name called Murry’s Coffee Shack . We hope to one day give back to FIP research to find a cure so nobody else has to go through what we went through!

    We lost our 8 month old to wet. It happened in less than 2 weeks. He was a shelter rescue and immune-compromised (we adopted him at 5 months, he had lost his eyes to untreated upper respiratory infection). He would have been a year old this month! We miss him every day. We were so lucky to be his parents even if it was such a short time. He passed knowing love and safety.

    Our cat Finn was diagnosed with dry FIP in 2015 as a kitten, once diagnosed he was put on FOI daily. Finn remained on FOI for nearly 2yrs, he was also on vit B weekly he remains well and unneutered by request of vets.

    In 2017 our other cat Buddy aged 5yrs had dramatic weight loss and after testing was diagnosed with dry FIP which soon developed to Wet FIP also Anaemia.
    Buddy was diagnosed on 30th March, he was prescribed FOI daily, antibiotics, predinosone, unfortunately the vets had serious delays on treatment for anaemia. Buddy was pts on 31st april 2017. Alison

    my 10 yr old black shorthair was very sick 3 yrs ago.he was around a stray I found that died of
    FIP,dry one,at 3 months. Alvin has been very healthy the last 3 yrs.my vet suggested the day of titer
    Test to euthanize him. I took him home,no meds, and several days later he was eating.my vet sent
    Blood sample to two different labs to be sure.his titer was off the charts as he commented.don t
    Understand how he got better.he is such a love and very grateful he has survived.

    Ozzie, Savannah F5/Bengal mix. Rescue from hoarding situation. Presented eye color change at 6mo after being neutered. Passed at 7mo. Since diagnosis he was under supportive care, he was jaundiced and going into liver/kidney failure. We were trying everything under the sun, including polyprenal immunostimulant. I miss that baby more than anything. One of the true loves of my life. I’ve never been the same since he’s been gone.

    Baby Cas was a kitten I went into an active drug house to rescue, against priest from the man begging me not to take him I took him.. He was feverish covered in ringworm tiny baby kitten I thought to be maybe 2/3 months at most he was 7 months and only lived another month after I bright him into my home, he was under constant supportive care from the beginning never wanted to eat, had a strange look in his eyes and I’ve been rescuing for only about a year and had no idea it was brain damage that caused that strange look in his lil eyes, I fell deeply in love with that lil fella, I miss him terribly.. At the end on his last day he got up to drink water on his own the first time since I had him then he couldn’t drink, her couldn’t get in litter box.. Worst day off my life

    Purebred Persian (although I question how well the breeder cares for their cats). Sadly he was PTS at 8 months due to wet fip. In his 2 week deterioration period, went from being very affectionate to incredibly quiet and reclusive (began hiding and refused to move), had a runny nose, refused to eat and had no energy to use the litter box. As it progressed his breathing was incredibly laboured, his belly swelled up and my baby started losing his hair. He was on 24/7 watch at the vet clinic and continued to deteriorate. However, Initially (at the start of the two weeks) I had him tested for absolutely everything and it all came back negative.

    (First major sign was the lack of appetite and energy, which I thought was just a cold).

    Purebred Burmese, Gracie. Dry FIP. First noticed symptoms at 8 months and diagnosed 2 months later. Was 2005 so no real treatment other than syringe feeding and keeping her comfortable until she declined quickly at 1 year 5 months and we had to end her suffering. 😿

    Purebred Ragdoll, July 10 2016 – December 6 2016. Brought her home from the breeder in late October, so she died about seven weeks after that. It was wet FIP which affected her lungs primarily, giving her trouble breathing. Signs first became obvious about a week before we let her go, at first she was just a little tired, which didn’t strike me as particularly odd, since it was also the start of the really dark period where we live. She went downhill rapidly over the last four days of her life.

    Interestingly, in mid-November we tested my other Ragdoll cat (born March 2016) for Corona antibodies and it seemed she hadn’t been exposed to Corona virus at that point. I’m still worried that she or my newer cat might develop FIP. The ordeal with Elsa was traumatic and one of the most heartbreaking things I have ever experienced.

    My sweet purebred Ragdoll female showed symptoms of dry FIP ocular at 14 months old. Hyphema in right eye. Euthanized at 16 months when she developed neurological symptoms. When l picked up the kitten from the Breeder last year at approximately 15 weeks old, she had sneezing and weepy right eye, the breeder said it was normal after spaying and thought l was making a big deal about nothing. What still causes chills down my spine is, that is the eye that developed a hyphema less than a year later. A big deal out if nothing? Ughhh.

  24. August 26, 2017 at 10:25 pm

    That is something…sounds like the doxy helped enough to give the appearance of better health and the neuter pushed him over the edge and weakened his system; terribly sad. Thank you for sharing your story with me. And yet another Siamese!

  25. August 26, 2017 at 3:53 pm

    Yet another case of FIP in the Siamese breed. I’m reading more and more Siamese being affected. I wonder why? I hope your 7 year old stays strong and healthy and I’m sorry you lost your kitten. Thank you for sharing this story with me.

  26. August 26, 2017 at 3:51 pm

    Denise, This is a prime example of how stress plays a huge part in the advancement of corona to FIP mutation. I’m happy that Garfunkel is well and I’m sure you watch him like a hawk knowing that he is at a higher risk. Keeping his immunity strong and free from stress will keep him healthy! But you know that…you are a wealth of FIP knowledge my friend!

  27. August 26, 2017 at 3:49 pm

    Christina, those kitties were so lucky to have you and if you scroll up in the comments and read Ben’s list of 15…the two of you have been dealt one heck of a hand. You mentioned that many were from the same shelter…we any of the siblings and if so, how many? I think it’s pretty evident that education and prevention to stop the corona virus from spreading is where we need to focus. Removing kittens from their nursing mothers by 5 weeks of age and separating them from her litter box is a great place to start. It’s alot of work, but if they don’t get corona and their immune systems have time to mature, I think we can stop the FIP mutation from occurring in many cases as well. Thank you for sharing this with me.

  28. August 26, 2017 at 3:45 pm

    My goodness, another Siamese. I’m seeing a real trend here…my next survey will be breed-specific. What trial was he accepted for and when? Usually the dry you have a little time…I’m sorry that you didn’t get that time.

  29. August 26, 2017 at 3:44 pm

    Ben, this is unbelievable. It looks like more wet than dry too. What year range would you say this took place? Were any of them siblings? You are the saint of all saints for taking care of these kitties 🙂

  30. August 26, 2017 at 10:11 am

    Camilla, are the other 4 surviving adults at all related to Matilda or Aussie. Were their diagnoses close in proximity to one another and did they come from the same rescue facility/same time frame? I am astounded at how many people are telling me they have had more than 1-2. Such a tragedy for so many.

  31. August 26, 2017 at 10:08 am

    Oh my, how sad! Are the Bengals related?

  32. August 26, 2017 at 10:07 am

    I replied on Aug. 24th.re. my Siamese kitten. It was very brief comment as having Siamese for over 50 years this was a very painful learning curve. She was bought as a companion for my 7 year old Siamese who developed diarrhea not long after the kitten was introduced. When the kitten was neutered at 6 months she went down hill rapidly .Now being aware of FIP we had Kira tested.The sample of blood and poo sent to Glasgow university where Dr. Addie is monitoring the results. She is still shedding the virus on the FCoV RT-PCR and she will have a blood and Poo test done again next month.The kitten was put to sleep January 30th 2017. Such a beautiful
    little cat. So it is still ongoing.

  34. August 25, 2017 at 7:08 pm

    That is simply unreal that you had to endure that 3 times. I am so sorry to hear this and would love to understand how this happens. So, I need to enter the last 2 of the 3, right?

  35. August 25, 2017 at 7:05 pm

    I’m starting to see a trend with Siamese cats. I’m working on my next survey which will focus on breeds to determine if certain breeds are more susceptible than others. So sad for your loss.

  36. August 25, 2017 at 6:57 pm

    First off, I am happy she found you and you were able to bond. So it sounds like you are saying she was experiencing vertigo (spinning/dizzy) or tinnitus (ringing in the ears)? It sounds like she had been sick for some time, which is possibly why they couldn’t properly bond. I am constantly astounded at the many different ways dry FIP presents itself. I am sorry to hear you didn’t get to have her in your family for very long :o(

    This kitten was about 13 weeks old. Had a fever and wasn’t eating well about 6 weeks of age. Had him on doxy, tested for fip and was negative. He got better and was neutered at 10 weeks. A week later had fever and treated again. Got better and then much worse. Took him back to the vet, they said his breathing was so labored he would not make it thru the night. He was euthanized and they felt it was definitely dry fip. Hair loss around eyes, stayed in one place, stopped eating, high fever, breathing problems. He was a snowshoe Siamese mix

    My nieces had given my sister a red tabby persian purchased from a pet store (they should have known better!). My sister and the kitten never bonded so when we went for a visit my sister gave her to us – she was just turning 2. We bonded immediately! When we had had her for 3 months she started having spells of running which we realized were triggered by a buzzing noise. We had taken her to regular vet but been told she was a neurotic persian. Trip to ERvet during one of the spells, he said to have her regular vet do bloodwork as some diseases could cause such. Next morning we were at her vet…during the blooddraw she suffered massive grand mal seizure. She survived but suffered neuro damage from it. She continued to have seizures, quit eating. Symptoms and bloodwork pointed to dry FIP of brain. We had gotten her at Christmas and lost her in June.

    Lost our 7 month old Siamese neutered male after a six week battle with dry/neurological FIP. Had him euthanized when symptoms got bad. Broke our hearts to lose our sweet Rocky. He was so full of mischief! He had been accepted for a drug trial , but the symptoms progressed too quickly to start meds.

    I entered my first kitty, Rosa, who had wet FIP at the age of about 6 months, November 2015., in your poll. The rest are listed here:
    2. Bodhi, Dry FIP. Bodhi was about 9 months old when he began to be ill. He suffered from seizures in the end, at about 1 year.
    His time in my household overlapped by a few weeks with Rosa. April 2016. Bodhi had awful seizures in his last 24 hours.
    3. Flash, a young kitty from the kitten season of 2016, developed symptoms of fluid in his chest cavity in lqte October 2016, and was euthanized in November at about 8 months.
    4. Elsa Star, Flash’s sister, cuddled with him when he was sick and then later developed ocular FIP. I kept her isolated in her last two months before she died in January 2017, age about 9 months.
    5. Lily, a tuxedo girl, about the same age as Flash and Elsa, developed uveitis (ocular FIP) in December 2016 and was put down. She had ceased to grow for a couple of months before she passed. The cats with dry FIP have a different response during euthanasia that really makes clear just how much their neurological system has been affected.
    6. Newt was a kitten who, with his brother Rhett, were being raised until their own immune system would be strong enough to test negative for FeLV. Initially they both had tested a ‘weak’ positive. He and his brother were raised in isolation and only played with each other. When Newt tested negative for FeLV, I really believed that he would be fine. An adopter wanted him, and so he was neutered when he was 3.5 pounds, and adopted. Then a month later, he was diagnosed with wet FIP, at about 6 months, January 2017.
    7. Rhett, Newt’s brother. After I received word about Newt, I watched Rhett carefully, and realized that he also had wet FIP. February 2017, about 7 months old.
    8. Sky, a robust 8 month old kitty, developed uveitis at the same time as Lily (#5.) We went through many different treatments for his uveitis, thinking it could be something else, but nothing made any difference at all. He had almost no other symptoms, and his bloodwork was normal. Then we tested the corneal fluid by rt-PCR, and it was positive for FIP. Sky had dry FIP from December 2016 , and was treated with PI from April until the end of July. I kept him in isolation until the last week of his life. At that point I could see that his fip was manifesting as the wet form, and he was becoming uncomfortable. Rather than let him suffer more, I released him from it on August 1st. Sky was about 14 months old.
    Several of these kitties had their tissue samples and remains sent to the Dr. Whittaker Lab at Cornell University to help with their Feline Coronavirus Study.

    Why did I have so many cases? First of all I have been acting as a Rescue. But when the first one happened, FIP was completely new to me, and I was shocked. That was a wet case, and several months later, a dry one. Then the cluster that happened last fall, added more and more to my experience. Meanwhile folks are saying this is not contagious, but clearly, something was happening. These young kitties had for the most part come from the same shelter, and had had kitty colds initially. They had been in company with each other (except for Newt and Rhett, from a different shelter). Initially I let these kitties hang out together. As the cases increased, I started to take a very different approach. I stopped taking younger kitties in, too.
    So what this was, appears to have been an outbreak. It is startling.

    I am happy to report that many young cats have been raised in my home without any problems and are now living great lives. But my feelings about rescue from shelters has shifted considerably. And I marvel a bit that I dared to do so much. A price has been paid, to be sure.

    Unfortunately I had 5 cats dying from FIP: the first one was 1 year old only, male, neutered, The second one was 8 years old, female, neutered, third one 3 years old, female, neutered, fourth one 2 years old, female, neutered. They all died from wet form. The fifth cat had dry/uncertain, died at age of six, male. All were European shorthair, and rescue cats. For the last one I did not ask for necropsy, as his death was very shocking, but after we have tlaked a lot with my vet, and tried to analyze what happened, and we are 99,9% sure it was dry FIP:
