A friend found an abandoned kitten at the Bosphorus University. She was so tiny, so scared, hungry, dirty and covered with fleas. We took care of her. We first fed her, then washed her and got rid of the nasty fleas. She first started crying while we are washing her, but a few minutes later, she liked it and started purring. After all the care, she became a totally different kitten, a cotton candy, a princess. We named her Pamuk (cotton in Turkish). Now she is waiting for her forever parent(s). A few people already wanted to adopt her.
A few days ago, a friend (a student at the Bosphorus University) found an adorable kitten on the campus. She was so cute, so innocent, at the same time so vulnerable. Unfortunately, dogs frequently kill the cats here, so we decided to keep her in one of our offices.

FIP (Feline Infectious Peritonitis) is a fatal disease that affects cats. Still, there is no cure for FIP and it is 100 percent fatal. The disease is caused by a mutation of feline enteric coronavirus (FECV) or simply Feline coronavirus (FCoV). But, according to a recent study, titled “Efficacy of a 3C-like protease inhibitor in treating various forms of acquired feline infectious peritonitis”, published in September 2017, an antiviral compound (GC376 protease inhibitor) has opened the door to targeted antiviral drug therapy and FIP treatment. The compound GC376 was originally synthesized in 2011 while looking for cures for the Norwalk virusNotes 1. It was found to have a broad spectrum of activity against other viruses – including the coronavirus family – one of which is the cause of FIP.

If you started searching for FIP (Feline Infectious Peritonitis) on the Internet and stumbled upon this page, I am really sorry for you. Perhaps your or your family’s cat (or a friend’s, or a relative’s cat) is diagnosed with the disease.

I can understand your feelings because I recently lost my beloved “Sarman” to FIP. And now I am devastated.
