22 Apr Smoky
Smoky was a special little boy who we kept from Candy’s first litter. We planned for him to contribute his sweet calm personality and exceptional color genetics to the Abyssinian breed. Everybody loved him who met him, felines and human alike, even people who didn’t like cats.
Smoky was born on February 24, 2009 and was Dancer’s littermate.
I am very sad to say that Smoky died December 8, 2009 of neurological dry FIP, a notoriously difficult disease to diagnose, after a month of vet visits, testing, and round-the-clock loving, supportive care by my bedside with a warming lamp or in my bed with me.
Unfortunately, FIP does not have a diagnostic test or a cure. Please support SOCKFIP in helping researchers find a diagnostic test, and hopefully also a genetic test and/or a cure for FIP.
