Most of my conversations, that aren’t about climate policy, tend to be about my two adorably fluffy cats.
Cat Stevens is a gloriously regal fluff-monster. He has the sweetest disposition, is very polite, and makes terrific music!
Unfortunately, as of February 2020 Cat Stevens was diagnosed with the Dry-form of FIP. This was considered to be a terminal illness. Starting in 2019, however, research from UC Davis showed strong efficacy for curing FIP when treating them with an antiviral compound — GS-441524. Study results suggested that ~90% of cats that completed the treatment process were cured.
We have been treating Cat Stevens since February using Black Market GS from China. To better understand the different brands available from China, I have conducted my own analytical chemistry analysis. I hope this can help others. I have also created a website to help monitor and log injections, with the hope that we can build up enough clinical data to improve treatment recommendations and outcomes.
Persimmony Snicket, on the other hand, is a bundle of pure cuteness. She’s a delightful orphan that loves attention and play. She is well on her way to becoming a true adventure cat!
