My cat Muffin, who's been with us for 12 years, is very sick and at the vet today...my feeling is that she's not going to come home. We don't know what's wrong but recently she stopped eating, lost weight very quickly and is extremely weak. This morning (while I was still asleep) my family found her unmoving under my mom's bed and thought she had already passed away, but she's still alive, just very very weak.

It's been a long and strange journey with this cat who has been both a pain in the butt and a prominent member of the family. I remember when she was a kitten and used to sleep on my chest (until she got too heavy and would smother me every time she tried!). It's hard to really feel anything right now, I just hope she's not in pain and I hope that if she has to be put to sleep she goes in comfort and peace.

Update: kitty is spending the night at the vet. The doctor thinks there may be something wrong with her kidneys.

Thank you for the hugs and sympathy, everyone. /hugs back

(sigh) That's what I thought; one of my cats had the same type of symptoms, and it was his kidneys. He was about 16 years old.

Hang in there.

I'm sorry to hear  Sad Our cats are battling with CRF as well. We found this site very helpful.
http://www.felinecrf.org/

Our Brandy had a "crash", where we thought it was the end. We took him to the vet where he got his fluid injections, but the vet said he was in a bad way. He's inseparable from his brother, so we thought we'd bring him home, and if need be have the vet do a house call, but he perked up, and is acting his old self. They can't recover, so it's hard to get your hopes up, but they could still live on happily for a while yet. The hard thing is that they can't even diagnose CRF until they only have a third of their kidneys left. I'd recommend a special diet, and giving her phosphate binders, and protease enzymes.

I'm pulling for her. It's hard to cope with when they take up such a big spot in our hearts.

Another update, Muffin is still at the animal hospital and they're trying her on fluids but the vet is not hopeful. We'll know tomorrow but it's not looking good for her to make it.
