He and Madam are the housecatest cats we have. Jerome was a stray that joined Juju’s colony. We rescued him to adopt out because he is such an affectionate cat. At the vet he tested FIV+ and later declined so he almost died. Dr. Covey¬†couldn’t find other cause than his FIV status so we got him to be seen by a fp, Dr. Arnold from Lincoln. Jerome was diagnosed with organ failure, possibly FIP and given a few months to live. I decided to keep him to the end because I felt we (humans) owed him at least a few happy months. That was 10 months ago, today he’s a very contented and (ack) fat (maybe from the pred and overfeeding) housekitty.
