We lost three cats in 18 months to FIP. We were told not adopt any more cats for a year. Since the last cat died, we have become overrun with mice. And I mean BADLY!!! I sit here at night and can hear them in the cupboard, the oven, behind the coffee maker, in the desk drawers, inside the chair. The waste has become disgusting. So. We checked with the vet because he said that the shelters here have a very high rate of FIP. What about private adoption? He said we have about a 80/20 chance of success, 80% being survival. We also learned that FIP is choosey. Not every cat exposed to it gets it, in fact about 20% do. So, due to the mice, we bit the bullet and went and picked up these two. We were told they are 8 weeks old and small because mama was. No way in hell are these that old. I think mama ran off and he didn't know WHAT to do. Look at this smile They are semi playful, ate well and used the litter box. But they got scared in the bathroom and Micro had to go show them the way back to the living room.
