I am glad that her temprature is up to normal as it's more scary to have lower temprature than high temp - anemic kitties have tendency to be cold - I would recommend that your vet put a low temp heating pad on her -- also warm up a fluid that they are giving her as IV if they haven't already..

I am so sorry about Tomi. It's very difficult to know now if he had FIP or not - there are lots of other causes for swollen belly than FIP - if you had done some lab work, I can probably take a look at and see if it was possibily FIP or not as I lost 8 kitties to FIP, I am somewhat familiar

Also, there are lots and lots of other (treatable) illness which mimic many symptoms of FIP - swallone belly, weight loss, difficulty breathing alone are NOT enough to even assume that its' FIP - For example, if you have a kitty with liver disease, symptoms you will see is a very similar as you
