Hi everyone, just rang up the vets, it is kidney failure, but although they cannot do anythink for his kidneys,they can help him in other ways, as long as he’s not being sick or anything. If you look at him he looks fine, but his back end looks really thin and he never stops drinking, so im of to the vets at 11am for his first injection. Its one of the bigest killer for older cats, the vets go on these numbers, a kittens kidneys should be 0, an adult is 6, and when they get to 14 thats it, but smokey at the moment is at 10, so i’m keeping my fingers crossed he will be with me for abit longer. Thanks for all your kind messages.

Hi Clarice, although I haven`t been following your blogs, I am really sorry to hear about your cat and will keep my fingers crossed for him. My 8 year old cat died from cancer at the beginning of the year so I know what it`s like. But previous to that my other cat lived to be 21+ !!

Hi Clarice,
I hope Smokey will be ok.
My old cat Fluffy lived to be 22 eventhough the vet said her kidneys were failing several years before that. She used to have quite regurar injections and drank plenty of water.There are pictures of her on my page.
Look after Smokey the best you can. That's all you can do. If you have a photo of him why not put it on. I'd like to see him.

Oh dear, I am sorry. I am glad that there is treatment for Smokey, though. Pets are wonderful companions and part of the family, aren't they. Bren - so very sorry to hear your sad news. I shall be thinking about you.
