Prayers for 18 year old kitty

My 18 year old cat stopped eating yesterday, so I took her to the vet, she had a 104 temp. The vet said though that her breath smelled like she might be in renal failure, however with a 104 temp decided to give her an antibiotic and fluids, and see how she does. She's home, slept most of the afternoon, finally got her to lick the liquid out of some canned food, but she really didn't eat the food. She is more alert though, but I am not fooling myself, fluids can do a lot to make her feel better but if it is renal failure she will just go downhill again.

Been a sad day.

Praying for your kitty. My sister took her cat who was 14 years old for fluids 2 or 3 times a week.

We haven't even discussed the possibilities yet, not sure if the fever and not feeling well stopped her from eating and drinking, thus possible she could over come this and be fine, or if she is indeed in RF and will need fluids and special diet.

If she doesn't start eating normal again though, vet says most likely its advanced and nothing we can do. wait and see, we have an appt again Friday, or earlier if we need it...

Positive thoughts for your senior girl. My boy is 16 y.o. and the vet said RF is what will finally take him.

Thanks all. Maddy seems a bit better today, still really weak but at least she is getting up to use the litter box and take a bit of food. I switched her to canned and add some water to it. She licks out the juice and eats a bit of the food.
I decided to make her her own room for now. This way I can monitor what and how much she eats, drinks and eliminates. I hate that I have to work today, but I think she is over me watching her anyways....
