Loki The Pixiebob Cat Chirping At His Toy

This video features an adorable Pixie-Bob cat named Loki who seems to be chirping at his toy due to excitement.

Loki was such a beauty! But sadly he passed away due to Feline Infectious Peritonitis at only nine months. Feline infectious peritonitis or FIP is a viral, incurable disease that affects cats. Infection with this virus does not produce any symptoms other than very mild diarrhea. The virus can be found in the saliva and feces of infected cats therefore, any contact and exposure to feces in litter boxes are the most common modes of transmission. Contaminated food or water bowls as well as beddings can also serve as sources of infection.

The cats that are most likely to get this disease are those with weak immune systems. The largest number of FIP cases occur in young cats when they are about 4 to 6 weeks old. Most kittens with FIP die between 8 to 18 months of age. There is no cure for feline infectious peritonitis and a survivor is very rare. If your cat has this disease, the only thing you can do is to make her as comfortable as possible. Research is still ongoing to develop drugs that may slow down the course of the illness.

Preventing overcrowding, keeping cats up to date with their vaccinations, and providing proper nutrition can help decrease the occurrence of FIP in cats.
