Purrs for Minnie on a Trying Tuesday



I apologize for not posting much recently.  My heart is not in it.  This has been an extremely  trying year for us - losing my brother in law in Jan to cancer, almost losing Georgie to fatty liver disease, losing Lily in April to cancer and then last month Ivy to thrombosis.  When Minnie refused to eat Monday morning I called the vet immediately.  She has increased her drinking so I was not surprised at the diagnosis of chronic renal disease.  Her numbers are not great but we hope with fluids regularly and added herbs and natural treatments we can help her feel more comfortable and return her appetite.

Our Angel cats Chica, Yoko and Ivy all had this disease for many years but none of them died from it - that is reassuring that we are doing something right.  Please keep dear Minnie in your thoughts and set your purrs on mega power for her to stabilize.  Thanks to you all for your support and kindness.

Big purrs to Minnie. Every CRF cat is a little different, but you must have the basics down by now having treated previous cats for it. Big purrs for you, too. You sure have been through a lot this year!

We are purring and praying for your dear Minnie and hope she will be feeling a little better with her fluids and herbs to sustain her.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

I'm very sorry for all your troubles. That does sound overwhelming. Fortunately you are experienced at dealing with renal disease.
I hope Minnie responds well to treatment. Our boy Tommie had the disease and did quite well for a long time with fluids and other meds. Sending purrs and best wishes.
