It hit them all at once. It could become FIP which is fatal. I must
have tracked it in somehow.

I "googled" that and there is quite a lot of information. I do have eye
problem which makes it hard for me to read all of it. However there was
a statement that said cats can live normal lives with the virus. I did
have a neighbor who lost a cat to FIP and I certainly pray that it does
not develop in your kitties. \
What kind of treatment did you Vet suggest?
Purrs for your furkids and best wishes to you and your bank account. MLB

There is the virus but no prrof this is FIP. The vet said to continue
doing what I was doing. Fluids, proteins, calories, vitamins.

How did they get it? Could it have come in on your shoes? That's dreadful.

I have to syringe feed them except just now, Percy ate some canned
food all on his own. I picked up some appetite stimulant pills at the
vets today.
They are all isolated in different rooms and Archie is going
stir-crazy.

When my kitty stopped eating, somebody suggested I try feeding her baby
food. I picked up some Gerber 2.5oz jars of chicken baby food. I also
bought some small plastic spoons they sell in the baby food department at
Walmart. To my surprise kitty ate the stuff right up, I was in tears as
she licked and ate spoon after spoon of the stuff.

Your vet may also suggest Hills Prescription Diet a/d. It has a strong
smell which is good for cats, when they stop eating it's usually because
they've lost their sense of smell or need something stronger smelling to
encourage them to eat. Try getting a can and see how they like it.

As for the coronavirus, try not to focus on that. I had a vet specialist
tell me that it's a very common thing for cats to have, it's seldom tested
for also. Most cats have the virus, their owners never knowing about it,
and the cats will live a completely normal life. I suspect your cats all
have a cold, it will last three weeks and then everything will slowly
return to normal. Your cats have a great person to take care of them, they
know they are loved very much.
