I am very sorry. I lost 2 cats to FIP and that was hard - they were 7 and 8 years old - but for your kitty at only 18 months. That is tough. To make that decision is the most difficult part of having a pet, I do feel for you. There is a vaccine for FIP - it isn't 100%, but after losing 2, I insisit my cats have it. What helped me through the grieving, was to at a certain time every day for a month - I have a brief rememberance time - I would look at photos - think of the good times and the bad and have a good cry. You'll need to wait longer with FIP, but after once your vet says it is okay, then do open your heart and your home to another cat. That is the best medicine.
