This sweet boy is playful and adorable. He is shy to start but warms up pretty fast. He would love another young buddy to play with. He he approx. 2 years old. He is still a bit shy and skittish with big and fast movements but he does also get under feet and when he wants his breakfast or love first thing in the morning he can be pushy and nip at your ankles (not hard). So a bit of a playful stinker he is a very sweet boy and if you will let him he will lay on you all the time and across your chest when you sleep. HE LOVES kittens so would love a home with one of the kittens in his foster home.
Elliott did have a dental so his teeth are good now. As well he did have FIP over a year ago but he was treated and has fully recovered! Thankfully there is treatment now and he went through the entire treatment over a year ago and is now in great health!
What is the cause of FIP?
FIP is associated with a viral infection called feline coronavirus. There are many different strains of feline coronavirus, which differ in their ability to cause disease. Previously there had been an attempt to classify these strains as either feline infectious peritonitis virus strains (capable of causing the FIP disease) or feline enteric coronavirus strains (essentially harmless strains mainly found in the intestinal tract). It is now recognized that feline enteric coronavirus strains can mutate (change) to the more harmful type of virus and cause FIP disease.
