Aeris the Movie About a Kitten with FIP Now Available

Filmmaker/actor Paul Castro Jr. with actress Aly Miller produced a movie called “Aeris.”  The short award-winning short film is about a very unusual topic for a movie: a kitten with a presumed fatal disease called feline infectious peritonitis (FIP). We talk a bit about what FIP. Paul says he made the movie because he and…

Drug That Can Cure FIP

Feline Infectious Peritonitis (FIP) has eluded veterinarians since the fatal disease was first discovered.  Dr. Neils Pederson, professor emeritus at the University of California Davis School of Veterinary Medicine, was among the first to describe FIP in several published articles, and in his still groundbreaking text, “Feline Husbandry: Disease and Management in the Multiple Cat Environment.” Understanding…

Luna the Cat in Remission from FIP

Debra Roberts is no ordinary cat owner, and Luna is no ordinary cat. On my national Steve Dale’s Pet World radio show we talk HERE about her cat, who has been diagnosed with feline infectious peritonitis (FIP).

FIP Update from Winn Feline Foundation

Feline infectious peritonitis (FIP) is an immune-mediated disease that all too often kills cats, especially kittens. For many years, the nonprofit funder of cat health studies, Winn Feline Foundation, has funded research on the fatal disease, and in recent years, Winn dedicated the Bria Fund to specifically raise money for it.

Winn Book Celebrating 50 Years, Yours For Free

I am certain that no organization has contributed to the health and welfare of cats for 50 years as the Winn Feline Foundation has. This is the only organization on the planet that exists solely for funding cat health studies. And, Winn is equal opportunity: All cats benefit, from domestic shorthair to pedigreed cats to community…

Aeris, Movie About a Kitten with FIP, Screened at Lincoln Center

The Lincoln Center has rooms to screen films, often documentaries or art films. I suspect with the hundreds or more films presented over the years, this is the first one ever about a kitten with feline infectious peritonitis (FIP). These young and clearly outrageously talented New York City-based actors, Paul Castro Jr. and Aly Miller,…

Aeris, Movie Screening to Support FIP Study Funding

For a movie premiere at the Lincoln Center in New York City, you’d expect the star to be maybe Matt Damon or Gwyneth Paltrow. The star of this movie, however, is Aeris the cat. But Aeris is no ordinary cat; he’s a kitten dying from a fatal disease. When young New York City-based filmmakers Aly…

Aeris: Movie Supports Funding for FIP Studies

Feline Infectious Peritonitis (FIP), a surprisingly common disease in cats that mostly affects kittens has always been considered fatal. But now, for the first time, there is hope. New York City-based filmmakers/actors Ally Miller and Paul Castro, Jr. had just purchased a kitten at a pet store. And, nearly from the start, little Aeris didn’t seem right.…
