Day 111 Kuma’s FIP Journey: Day 1 observation
So here we are.
These are the observation recommendations from our admins:
Observation instructions: During observation, you will still need to monitor weight, temperature, attitude, and appetite.
Bloodwork is due on days 30, 60, and 84 of observation and posted in here.
Please continue with all supplements used during treatment.
If your kitty has never been vaccinated before, please speak with your Veterinarian regarding getting vaccines, particularly if the cat is in a higher-risk living environment, like going outside, exposure to other cats that go outside or if you do rescue work.
We do not recommend surgery during observation if it is at all possible to avoid it.
Please reach out to us immediately if for any reason he’s not doing well.
Congratulations! Below is a summary of the symptom that could indicate a relapse. Inappetance Fever Lethargy Weight loss Loss of balance Unable or hesitant to jump Seizures Moves in abnormal or uncoordinated way Uneven pupils Pupils that don’t respond to light Fluid buildup Jaundice Uveitis Paleness Basically watch for anything that doesn’t appear “ normal “
All of the above can also be symptoms of many other things so work closely with us and your vet
So for the next 84 days, we monitor him closely.
My plan is to weigh daily, temp every other day, and daily journal, of which y’all get to read
Kuma was pretty active today, running plenty, resting a bit, then crashing in the afternoon.
I was kind of the same, called off work on my 2-day FMLA for my back, spasms everywhere, big cough from whatever the hell is trying to kill me.
He and I slept and rested all day.
Isao worked, from home, lucky bastard LOL
W: 6.64lbs, no temp
No s/sx of relapse
Good appetite (his new nickname is little goat)
Good activity, appropriate stalk, and pounce ability.
He always looks ataxic depending on his consciousness level
Fresh from sleep, he walks like a drunk.
Awake, he runs like a cheetah
He has always had issues with depth perception, and deciding on how to jump on things has always been an issue, so he “tests” his distances by sitting up like a meerkat, placing his paws out and looking for the object, and then adjusting appropriately.
So here we go
