My Cat's Story
Steven was a once in a lifetime cat. In 25 years of raising Japanese Bobtails, never had I had such an outstanding male, in terms of temperament and conformation to the breed standard. He developed non-effusive FIP at a year and six months of age, unfortunately before the days of gs-44152. We did try, with support of our veterinarian, a trial treatment of polyprenyl immunostimulant, which was a drug used with moderate success for non-effusive FIP cats in a University of Tennessee study, but unfortunately it turned from non-effusive to neurological FIP and we were unable to save him. I miss him every single day.
