Fluffy's sick (updated)

We had to take our dear cat Fluffy to the vet this morning. He was lethargic and moving slowly. Blood and urine analysis showed that his kidneys are failing. He is still in the hospital on an IV and having an ultrasound to see if he has cancer. His prognosis is NOT good. I've been crying all day. One more damn thing going wrong in my life.

I love you, Fluffy! Come home to us, soon!

Update: The vet just called. Fluffy's blood work is even worse than he thought. Fluffy is probably going to heaven soon. We're continuing the IV until tomorrow to see if his kidney function improves, but it's not hopeful. If he comes home, it's just for a little while and then we'll need to put him to sleep.


Oh, g-d. This sucks!

((hugs)) My heart goes out to you. What a tough thing to go through! Of course I hope for his recovery - I hate to see a cat be so sick. Keeping you in my thoughts.

Our 8 year old kitty had that major kidney failure almost 3 years ago, the vet told us that she had never seen a cat with that severe of kidney failure, they told us to put him to sleep and we were ready to until we decided to fight a little longer and he came home with us and has been home every since. Give him a few days... Always have hope! :) Either way you will be in our prayers...

I'm sorry, our furry friends are such a comfort when everything else is going wrong I can imagine how devastating this news must be.

msfitzita said...

I'm so very sorry. I have two cats that I adore and I understand how much love they bring to your life, and how much of a comfort they are - especially when you're dealing with agony of infertility. I'm so, so sorry that you are going to lose Fluffy. He's a truly gorgeous boy.

Thinking of you...
