FIP is a mutation of the corona virus which many cats are exposed to. It is thought that stress can contribute to the virus becoming FIP. Unfortunately tests for FIP are unreliable because there are so many false positives due to the corona virus being present in so many cats. It is hard to answer your questions, because so little is known and understood about this disease - some cats die, some don't, some get the disease after being exposed, some don't. Needless to say it is very frustrating.

Your vet will be a good source of information about this disease because s/he knows the cats involved, but here are a few websites you might want to check out:
www.winnfelinehealth.org/health.html
web.vet.cornell.edu/public/fhc/fip.html
www.vetinfo.com/cencyclopedia/cefip.html
www.newmanveterinary.com/fip.html
www.animalhealthchannel.com/fip/

Best wishes and good luck to you!
