|Midnight on his last day. His tummy was also distended, just like Saab's -- a classic sign of the effusive or wet form of FIP.|
Midnight is an FIP-positive cat who is very close to my heart because he looks like a grown-up Saab, and he developed FIP right after Saab crossed the Rainbow Bridge. He was given the experimental drug Polyprenyl Immunostimulang (PI) from Hong Kong, and at first he was doing well. Sadly, on the first day of the year, he had to be put to sleep because he was having seizures. His FIP has progressed from dry to the wet form.
I whispered in his ear as he was crossing the Rainbow Bridge: "Run and play with Saab, Midnight. No one else will understand your painful FIP journey other than Saab, because you took the same sad and dark road."
I am sorry for your loss, Ms. Luchie. Midnight and Saab, please take care of each other...
