Sorry I've been so quiet recently

Hi everyone,

If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook you might have noticed that I haven't been posting much recently. Unfortunately, I haven't been working on anything exciting behind the scenes at Sioux Alice either.

The last few months have been really hard as my cat Giuseppe has been very sick and I've been spending as much time as possible with him. Sadly, he has Feline Infectious Peritonitis (FIP). FIP is a rare but fatal disease of cats and there is no cure. If you know me, you know how much I love animals. My pets are my children and I'm just heartbroken that one day this horrible disease will take him from us.

The disease is very hard to diagnose and the last few months have been very stressful. Giuseppe fell ill in March and after weeks of testing he was diagnosed in early June. Throughout the process of being diagnosed his eye right started to go cloudy and swollen and his beautiful eye had to be removed. He lost a lot of weight and was just sleeping all day long. Most cats only live a couple of weeks with this illness but Giuseppe is now on trial medication (PI) which has helped some cats to live over a year and some even longer. Giuseppe has made a huge improvement, he's got his energy back and is playing with me again! It's so good to see him happy and I really hope it lasts for a long time!

Now that Giuseppe's feeling better I will be focusing more on Sioux Alice and I will be back on Social Media!!
