Sounds like a good sign that she's active, and interested in her catnip toy.

Well she pooped in her litterbox with her regular litter last night which is very good...but she needs to keep that up before she'll be back to normal.

Hi there everyone
Well, took Columbus off to the vet on friday - unfortunately he wouldn't pee for them either, so they ended up getting a needle sample. Anyhow, it did show that his urine was a bit dilute, so definately some kidney dysfunction going on, but the vet thinks that they've caught it reasonably early on, which is excellent news

So, anyhow, looks like Columbus is going to be on daily medication for the rest of his life. The vet said to just stick the tablet in the back of his throat, that that was the easiest way to get cats to swallow tablets - HAHA!!! Not a chance!!! - I couldn't even get columbus to open his mouth wide enough to get a tip of my finger in. So, looks like I'll have to mush up his tablet in his food every night - luckily he doesn't seem to have noticed any difference in the flavor of his food, and is eating it quite happily.

Hopefully after a little while on the tablets, he might start to put on a little weight again.

He got lots of cuddles and treats over the weekend for being such a brave cat!

I just wanted to let you guys know that Daytona seems to be a bit better. His medicine seems to be working but it is still to early to tell if it will continue to do so. I am just so relieved to see him looking a little more like his old self! Thanks again for all your well wished for him.

U2Dem and Mandy, I am praying for your kitties to get better!!

Mandy, the vet didnt put Columbus on a special diet? Suggest subq fluids? I'm just surprised, for a cat with kidney failure I dont think medication alone is enough. Unless its in the very very early stages.

Miss Purrl was put on the special diet--we had to pour water off of tuna over it or mix some tuna in with it to get her to eat it. But it bought her three more years!

Chloe's pooped in her new litter twice

She's acting like she's feeling better, but she still is getting this weird spasm that makes her run around obviously uncomfortable.
