Just got the bloodwork results that my 13 year old girl I have had for 6 years is in late stage kidney failure. Keeping her comfortable for a couple weeks until it is time. Poor Spotty.

Spotty is such a cute little girl. I hate that whole kidney failure business that seems to happen to cats as they age (we lost one to it several years ago). I understand how difficult this is. Thinking of you as you help Spotty remain comfortable and loved. ((Hugs))

That is the most beautiful picture you posted. It truly shows a sweet cat that we can tell is much loved.

Those of us who care for pets and love them so really understand.

Thank you all for your kind words and support. I lost my seventeen-year-old velcro Kitty / Snuggle Buddy last fall. He was constantly attached to me . Spotty was more spouse's cat, and not nearly as cuddly, but it is still unexpected and sad as 13 is on the young side for how long my cats tend to live. I once had one that made it to 22!

Luckily I have an amazing vet who I've known for at least 24 years now. She gives good practical advice and is very sympathetic. Her oldest boy and my twins started in daycare together at 18 months and then played all sorts of sports together and we've been friends ever since.

I'm so sorry. We are also close to this with our older girl (she's 16), looking at quality of life v quantity of life at this point. At the moment, she's doing well, but that could change any day.

Spotty is such a pretty girl, give her a nose boop from Australia.
