The topic: She’s giving up (or is she?)


After the fluids last night, she's showing no improvement this morning. She won't eat anything.

She did last ngiht, but this morning, nothing.

And she's really dehydrated. Again.

Holding her is like holding a ragdoll. She has very little strength. I think she's slowly starving to death. What little she eats goes right through her and a month of medication isn't working.

She was at the fountain outside this morning and Brian turned it on, so she could lap from the falling water. He said "you notice her breathing?"

Yeah, she's having a hard time with it.

I'll be calling the vet to make final arrangements this morning.

Or maybe I won't. She just came inside, crying in the kitchen. I placed different types of food in front of her, nothing interested her.

Then I scrambled an egg. She's eating.

I told Brian I'm going to give her fluids, but hold off on her meds today. Maybe there's something there that she's not processing. At this point, I can't see her doing any worse.

I know exactly what you are going through.  These are the hardest decisions to make and I have had to make many of them in the last 30 years that my husband and I have owned cats.  We currently have 20 cats and half of them are over 15 years old so their days are counted. Know that we always do what is kindest for them and we do it because we love them so much.

In her spare time, she makes pretty things to sell in her store.
