After you talk with the vet you will make the right decision. One data point is 
a kitten we rescued a few years ago had the dry form of FIP but was so alert 
and alive we decide to treat her symptoms till it no longer made sense. Towards 
the end she lost the use of her back legs and would drag herself around - which 
sounds pathetic but only if you never met her ... she was all kitten in her 
heart and would joyfully play and have fun. We kept her to a confined area and 
cleaned up after her several times a day.  Towards the end everyday we asked 
ourselves if she was having more joy than discomfort. Of course finally we had 
to let her go.  Your love for IttyBitty will guide you to the right decision.
