Unhappy my cat... if it's not one thing it's another...

My dear old cat is not doing well....

She's 18.
I've had her since I was 2 as a kitten but I've known her since she was born because she was my grandmother cat's kittens(her cat had kittens at 6 months old!)

She put up with me like a Saint. which is why her nickname is Saint Poppy.
I was a hyperactive Autistic child(my mum likes to say I was possessed).
Dear sweet Poppy, she was put in clothing, carried upside down, put in pools, dragged on leash and so much more, and yet she never scratched or bit and she ALWAYS came right back. She put up with everything I put her through like no-other cat.
She also only did this for me, if another child tried to put her in clothing she'd scratch and run away. But not with me.

For many years she was my best friend...

Over the last couple of day's she's lost a lot of weight and doesn't want to eat, she's just not been herself. She's having a hard time walking. I wonder if maybe she had a seizure...

she was doing great till just a few days ago, now suddenly she's just not doing well. I don't think she has much longer...


It seems in my life if it's not one thing it's another.... last week I lost my dear baby bearded dragon(basically to the bearded dragon equivalent of SIDS)

It's sounds like she is in kidney failure. I would get her to the vet. There is lots that can be done to help her if this is what it is. She sounds like a wonderful cat, don't give up on her just yet.



Love is patient, love is kind.
Love never gives up or loses faith.
Love is always hopeful and endures through every trial.

I was thinking kidney failure as well. My cat is 16 y.o. and the last time I was at the vet office we discussed stopping vax. and what to watch for as he ages. The vet said that kindney failure is common in senior cats;

My 18 year old kitty has kidney failure and when I took her to the vet she was exhibiting the same issues, plus 104 temp...we did antibiotics and fluids. It has been just over a month and she is doing pretty well. There are things you can do.

With my kitty at the end she had a big tumor growing in her abdomen and was losing weight/not eating. Poor thing- I wish it had been kidney failure then maybe we could have had some hope to do something. Get your kitty to the vet in the morning.
