Our 17 year old cat, Jennifer, is in renal failure. They pumped her full of fluids, potassium and antibiotics, but they don't think she's going to make it through the night. My boys are devastated. They just aren't understanding why we lost my mom, the baby and now the cat is leaving us. We've had her since Pete and I were married a year. Little kitty prayers appreciated. We all can't stop crying. This stinks.

Thanks you guys. We've decided to skip my meeting tonight and the boys' scout meeting and just stay home with Jennifer. Man, this is so hard. Thanks for your prayers. I really hope she makes it through the night so we can get more fluids for her tomorrow and hopefully she can still be with us when Pete gets home.


Update: Well, she made it through the night. Thanks to everyone for their kind thoughts and prayers. She is still so sick and weak. It's hard to watch her struggle. She was at the vet all day today getting IV fluids, and now she's home again. DH will be home in about an hour, and I will be so relieved when he is here. I hope we are doing the right thing. Continued prayers are appreciated. If she makes again tonight, they'll repeat the IVs in the AM.

Oh, Kelty. My heart is breaking for you and your family. I went through the EXACT same thing with my cat of 19 years. It was (up until that point of my life) the hardest thing I had ever dealt with. Stay strong -- thoughts and prayers are with you.

I talked to the vet today. We're discontinuing the IV fluids. There's nothing that they can do. She's not in any pain, so we're going to keep her comfortable and let her die here. They say it could be anytime, but, probably not longer than a week. I feel horrible. And seeing the boys upset is so hard. She's been with us through everything. And, I can't imagine our sassy little cat not being around. Thanks so much for everyone's kind words and prayers. I wish she didn't have to go, but, if she can't have live like she's used to, and she's running on empty, I hope she passes peacefully.

The house seems so quiet and depressing. Mix that with my hormones and we just aren't having a good day. At least she's not in pain and she can be home with us...
