Another week

Bird's comment came at just the right time. I was going to the vet's today to pick up some more appetite stimulant pills. I saw Bird's comment and called my vet and asked if I could bring Muffy in for fluids. So Muffy got fluids today. And all the fluid ended up settling around one of her front legs and it looks like she has a beefy arm.

Despite her having kidney disease, we've never had to do sub-q fluids before. She normally drinks like a fish. But in the last couple days she's lost interest. When she was outside the other day she found a bucket that we had some grape vines (and mud, and grass clippings) and LOVED drinking that nasty water. I was fine with it till it got really gross and tossed the old nasty water and replaced it with fresh and she doesn't want it anymore.


There isn't a good way to say this. We have another week. That's probably it. It breaks my heart.

I'm so sorry ...words can't ever express it. Losing a family member sucks ..and watching them suffer isn't any better. I'll be thinking of you. Love her up this week and however many other weeks there are ...

Oh Amanda, I'm so sorry. This is such a hard thing to be going through. I wish I could help in some way. Muffy is such a lovely kitty, and you have taken such good care of her for a very long time. I hope that the fluids perk her up for a little bit, and that you can spend as much quality time with her as possible for as long as she has left. Thank you for posting the pictures of her out enjoying the roses and the yard. Hugs.

I keep thinking of you and Muffy. I saw a cat today at the farm up the road and it looked like Muffy. I hope you're doing ok and that she's still comfortable and with you.
