i got two kittens about 6 month ago.they were both found in the wild.one of them seemed depressed from the beginning and it turned out that he had FIP (feline infectious peritonitis) all that time.at least thats what the vet narrowed it down to, after blood tests and obvious symptoms.i ended up euthanizing it yesterday and my question is regarding my other cat.he has never shown similar symptoms and is totaly healthy, alert, playfull...(basicly the opposite of the one euthanized). should we assume that he is infected to and that he will evidently get as sick as the other one?is there a way to test him? and finaly, i'mthinking of getting a new cat.is there a high risk that he would become comtaminated also?if not, how long should i wait before getting a new cat?
