Baby :(

May 25th, 2018 at 08:15 pm

Baby is one of the two cats my DH had the first time we dated in 2004. The other one - Riddles, died a few months before our wedding.

Baby had severe issues with UTIs when he was younger, and had two surgeries to help. One of which essentially castrated him I think, and rearranged the uretha? tube.

We had complete blood work done on him 1 1/2 years ago due to lots of upchucking. We were told he was in excellent shape for his age.

The last few weeks we'd caught him peeing next to a wall - nowhere near any of the numerous clean litterboxes - multiple times. This wasn't exactly new, but we hadn't seen it in a long time.

DH also noticed he'd been throwing up a lot more again. And he'd lost several pounds.

So on Thursday he took him to the vet - they ran the blood tests again.

This time it looks like there may be a kidney issue. As in possible renal failure. Frown

I'm taking him to the vet tomorrow for her to do some other tests, and get prescription food.

He's such a good cat. We're so not ready to say goodbye to another cat - we just lost Sunny in November.


Hoping our pet fund will handle this - Sunny's care pretty well depleted it. If not, we can dip into the EF.

    Oh, I am so sorry about Baby. I just looked at our shih Tzu that turned sixteen this month; she's hobbling around but has hip issues. I had the wretched realization that her time here is probably very limited. And she's the sweetest thing, just likes to be around people. It just made me so sad. Prayers you get lots of time with Baby.
