Description: 

*Update 2nd February, 2014 by Suyoun
Friendly is aggainst with death now.
He can't eat alone but hate feeding. I don't want to let him alone without forever mom so I changed the state as he is adopted.
I'm his mom and keep doing my best for him forever.

*Update 24th January, 2014 by Suyoun
Long time no see!
Friendly is doing great but he can't walk around well.
It's one of symptoms of FIP. He still eats and sleep well.
I didn't know how he is adorable before but I can't sleep without him!
I know he will leave me someday, but I won't imagine it before it happens.
We have enough time to love each other. Please pray for him.

*Update 20th December, 2013 by Suyoun.
Yeah, it's over a month he came to my house. :)
He looks getting weight and doing great so far.
He keeps sneezing but no big deal. I'll take some medicine again after taking a break.
Always beside me when he sleeps at night. What a cute baby..
I'm happy to see he gets better and it's a kind of miracle. I'm a lucky person!

*Update 19th November, 2013 by Suyoun.
I changed the vet clinic because I live in Ansan so Anypet is too far from here.
Dr.Choi said Friendly has 80% possiblities of Feline infectious peritonitis(FIP), and I took the details to the new vet and he said that he think so via the test results.
Aslo there is no option to do things for Friendly if he is truly FIP.
Just feeding him what he likes and let him do whatever he wants to do.
He was skinny since I met him at the shelter. Sometimes, especailly in the symptom of herpes, he denied to eat something by himself.
At the last time, he denied to eat when Clare and Cathy took him to the vet.
Now he eats by himself and eats alot. :)
The vet said his velly will be fulled with water in two months and will die soon. I don't want to believe it and I trust he is going to be a winner in this game.
That's all what I can give him, fresh food and water, warm house and love.
I kiss him everyday and say many things to him. I also try not to give him medicine because he hates to take it.
I don't want he is stressed out with taking medicine. (He is taking some medicine for herpes now.)
Please take a look the miracle of him.

*Update 12th November, 2013 by Suyoun.
Friendly is in my home at Ansan near Seoul.(with Tomas http://www.animalrescuekorea.org/cat/2251)
He is eating by himself and getting better now.
He has 80% possiblities of FIP, so he needs to take medicine forever.(two times a day, capsuled.)
I know it's strong desease and would kill him someday. But he can enjoy his life for until the day is coming.
His name came from his personality, Clare gave that name to him.
You can get kisses from him every day, every moment if you are with him.
Also, you can experience what's the miracle through him.
=================================================================
Friendly has been rescued on the street in Incheon city.
He didn't eat by himself at all so fed him with a syringe.
The vet(신기동물병원) he visited said he can't be live if he doesn't eat by himself. so the cat mom moved him to the Asan shelter. Mr. Park tried to feed him and finally Friendly started eating himself!!!
He is skinny and weak so has ringworm and herpes virus.
Clare and Cathy took him to the vet on 1st November and he is under the vet caring now.
Now, he doesn't eat by himself.

The vet said he has 80% possibility of FIP.
He didn't eat by himself when he came to the shelter but he ate meal alone. He doesn't eat alone again. But I know he will eat alon and be healthy soon.
He loves people. If someone get yammi food for him, he will choose you first.
He kisses your lips and keep cuddling. It's love what he needs now.
Cats are sensitive animals. My oldest cat denied meals while I was in vacation in south america for 10 days.
He might think I was dead after leaving for hunting. :)
That's the cat. Friendly has been staying in the cage at the vet since the last Friday.
Please consider to be a foster of poor Friendly.
FIP is hard to be cured but he can live for a long time if he could be cared with warm person.

I bought a militery jacket and it's very warm!
When he arrived at my house, he just sit on that jacket by himself. I think he is very smart! huh
I have web camera as well, so I can watch him every time. He sleeps all day long. :)
I feed raw chicken to Friendly and Tomas.
Everything is great but I have to seperate two cats from my four cats. lol

Look at Friendly!
He is getting heavier than the first time he came to my house. :)
He eats well. (I feed him raw chicken food two times a day.)
Friendly spends time to sleep. It's good for him to recover his body.
I feel he got more weight than before and getting better.

Thank you so much for fostering this sweetheart. I looked after a cat with FIP until he died and it is very stressful. Please know that once his belly starts to fill with fluid it will likely be painful for him. Cats can be in a lot of pain without showing many signs. Check out this link: http://virtuavet.wordpress.com/2010/01/26/how-to-tell-if-your-cat-is-in-.... I just would never want him to have to go through pain unnecessarily. I'm thankful he is with you and will be loved to the end. :)

Thanks Marla.
I've never been together a cat with FIP but I'll do my best for him while he is alive.
I'll check his belly every day and will note here if I need any advice for him.
I hope he lives for 20 years beside of me. :)

Friendly is so far so good!
He eats well and walks around the room to the room by himself.
I can see his weight is getting increased.
He always follows me at home and sleep on my belly.
Friendly is really sweet. :D
