Circe was euthanized due to “dry” FIP one month ago today, on 4/16/12, at the age of about nine months. She would want the fight to continue so that someday no cat need ever fear this horrible disease. ...

I’ve always considered myself a dog person, but an animal lover as well. Still, when my sister suggested and then insisted we get a kitten for our apartment, I wasn’t particularly keen on the idea. Even when we first brought Otto home I wasn’t thrilled with the arrangement. However, within a matter of days, he became my closest companion, my baby and I was genuinely in love with him. Sadly, just after two months of growing attached to Otto, he was diagnosed with FIP. I was absolutely crushed and thought our relationship would come to an immediate end, but I was fortunate enough to get five more months with him. While that time was filled with medications and trips to the vet, I’m endlessly thankful for the extra time we had and he could live as long of a life as he did happily and comfortably.
