Well, that really is what's on my computer most of the time. That and copious amounts of cat hair.

Junior letting me know it's time for bed.
I used to have a dog that would do that (come to me when he wanted me to go to bed), but never a cat!

^He's practically the size of a dog, so maybe that's part of it.

My 14-year old cat Sugar has kidney failure and the vet isn't sure how much time he has left. Maybe a couple weeks or a couple months if I'm lucky. You can read more about him (and give me some advice) in this thread!!!

Re: Feline Follies

I'm so sorry to hear that Sugar is so ill.

I've seen cats live on hydration treatments with diet modifications for months. What can be done to get fluid into cats is an IV, the vet leaves a port in the cat's leg you plug in daily or every other day to give sterile fluid in prescribed amounts. I've also seen a vet give a large bolus of fluid under the skin, a clysis, every other day to keep an animal hydrated.

Diet is very important, a renal diet that the vet figures out will help decrease those 2 high levels. Probably the BUN and the creatinine, 2 measures of kidney function.

The supplements I'm afarid I don't know enough about to advise you, but I can ask the vets I work with if you like.

Sugar looks like a lovely kitty. Sorry to hear he's not doing so well.

So sorry to hear about Sugar's illness, Ro. It's so hard when our furry loved ones become ill.

Thank you for your advice and thank you everyone for your well wishes! Sugar is such a loving kitty and I hate to see him suffering. I posted his lab results (blood work results) in my thread asking for advice about my Sugar. Here is one of my favorite photos of him, which I took last November:

Re: Feline Follies

I don't know if it'll help your situation, but I've mentioned I give my 9yo male water via a syringe 3x a day.

It's one of those plastic ones you get at the dentist, for flushing things like a dry socket, etc. I warm the water up a little so he'll drink it.

It's kept him from having a recurrence of sterile cystitis for quite a few years now.

Re: Feline Follies

So sorry to hear about your Sugar, Ro.


I was watching TV and as I reached for my water I happened to notice Füb lying on 'her chair' next to me, lying like only a cat can lie -to bad I woke her up with my flash-photography in the middle of the night...
