Hello all, I have a 5 year old cat diagnosed with FIP. The very symptoms that led to her diagnosis she has had since she was 4 weeks old. Five years later and she is going strong. I lost a kitten a week ago to very aggressive leukemia so I have turned my attention/obsession to my 5 year old. I cannot help but wonder if the diagnosis was off. Given that everything the experts say, she should have been dead by now. The vet told me that best case she could live to be 8, but most things online say that by now she should have gone downhill. I know there are no definitive testing methods ante mortem but the diagnosis just doesnt seem to fit with what I see every day. She is not even close to downhill, she plays a lot, eats well and drinks well. Has anyone ever had a cat diagnosed with FIP that ended up living a long life? Perhaps this is just a desperate attempt on my part to pretend it isnt real because the thought of losing another animal right now would just hurt too much.
