Can you say a prayer for my family cat?

My family cat of 17 years is not doing well. He has gradually lost weight and looks sunken in. We took him to the vet and got the results back today. I am not sure what they mean, whether cats with this diagnosis live much longer (if you know, please tell me), but I hope and pray he can come out on top of this. He has ALWAYS been a fighter. I feel blessed to have had him for 17 years but I selfishly want him another 17 more.

The vet said his blood count was low, his kidneys were not functioning correctly, and he MAY have feline leukemia (he said they need to run a different blood test and we'll know more tomorrow).

Please say a prayer for my kitty and my family. I feel so sad tonight.

Prayers being said. We recently lost our 15 year old cat. He also was in kidney failure. He lost a lot of weight, but was always hungry. In addition to a never ending bowl of dry food, I increased his canned food to 3 cans a day. He still continued to lose weight but the vet was surprised at how long he lived after diagnosis.

(((Hugs)))

I truly understand how precious our cats are and how we love them so. I am thinking of you at this time.

Prayers

Prayers for your baby boy. Mine is nearly 16 and I fear he is nearing the end of his physical journey with me. He has become much more lovey, has started losing some teeth, won't go far from me, and wants to snuggle and be pet all of the time. He doesn't seem as independent.

You have a handsome kitty and you are sad because he is not feeling well. I pray that he gives you many wonderful memories before he goes to a place where he will chase toys, roll in catnip, and visit you in your thoughts and dreams.

I lost mine about a year and a half ago to leukemia, but she was only 5 and she was a true fighter...

Hopefully it's not! Either way, 17 years is a long time and you are very lucky!

Praying for good news!

I certainly know how much animals touch our lives! My prayers are with you. I lost a dog who didn't quite live 1/2 the life of your cat. He was gone way too early!

What a handsome boy! My prayers are with you. Our pets give us so much love and contentment that it is hard to imagine letting them go. Just keep letting him know how much you love him (he knows it anyway)
