Very Bad Week



Last Saturday we noticed that my oldest male kitty Rudy wasn't feeling very well. He just seemed listless and refused to eat.I kept him hydrated with water and a syringe and fed him leftover chicken and plain yogurt which he ate very little of.Monday we took him to the vet.Rudy has had a bad heart since he was about 3 years old and one of the medications he took for it can cause after years of use kidney failure.They tested him for that and we brought him home.On Tuesday they called with the bad news.We went back that afternoon and had him put down.I feel so bad and I miss him so much.He would've been 10 years old next month.I am heartbroken.He was my kitty,if I was in the chair he was in my lap.If I was in the kitche he was supervising.He was my retriver cat. He'd play until your arm felt like it would fall off.I sure am going to miss my boy.RIP Rudy March 15,2000-February 23,2010

Sorry about your kitty Christina. I suppose it had to be done for his comfort.

Yes unfortunately when they experince kidney failure it is very painful and nasty process. There really isn't anything they can do for them and at his age it was just kinder to let him go.
