I think we are at the end of the line tonight. Sadly, she was diagnosed with kidney failure a few months ago.
I have been out of town the past couple of weeks - 2 weeks before I left she had a kidney infection that seemed to be cleared up by antibiotics. Left notes with the pet sitter to call if anything seemed odd.
When I came back yesterday, my dining room was FULL of cat waste, both kinds. The rug, the floor, it was so gross. I don't know how the pet sitter could have missed it! I'm pretty sure Maggie didn't eat while I was gone or not much at any rate. She's a sack of bones. Called the vet this morning and he wanted to try the antibiotics again. My gut was it was time - she wouldn't eat breakfast. She wouldn't eat lunch. I'm force feeding her now but she's so weak tonight.
Maggie picked me out at our local shelter - she pawed me on my arm as I stood by her cage bawling beause I was overwhelmed by all the cats. She picked me. I never regretted it as she is the sweetest cat I've ever come across. Not a mean bone in her body.
I'm hoping she can make it through the night but I don't think she can. I'd like my vet to do this but I won't let her suffer.
Jingles/prayers please for Maggie. Her picture is in my profile picture.
