Today, other than working, I am cleaning everything, like in The Velveteen Rabbit but with bleach instead of fire.
put a bit of Vinegar in the Bleach
maybe 1 to 5
then put solution in a spray bottle and “spritz” away..
or 1 to 5 (unscented) ammonia-water in same type of spray bottle..
BUT DON’T DON’T DON’Tmix
ammonia with bleach!!!
the fumes can kill you (period)
I never heard of FIP before. But sure enough it is real, and can be nasty. My condolences on the foster cat death. That must have been (and be) very difficult. The cat was lucky to have you and the shelter people to care for it as you and they did.
Does the cat shelter place where you got the foster cat warn people about FIP?
The info on the web about FIP suggests that they should.
I see the following, for preventing and managing FIP in multi-cat households: “Newly acquired cats and any cats that are suspected of being infected should be separated from the other cats.”
Are you considering not bringing any more foster cats home? Unless you have a separate room, separate litter boxes, etc., it doesn’t seem worth the risk.
ha– ed– no i won’t mix bleach and ammonia. i need to get some spray bottles.
steve– i’m not planning to take any more foster cats. as you point out, it’s too big a risk to my other cats. i might do some other volunteer work at the shelter instead.
Sorry to hear about your cat, poor thing. As the others said, though, she must have been so much happier recently living with you instead of at the shelter.
