She was a 17 year old cat that I found as a 4 month old Baby Girl kitten in my neighbors driveway.
She has been my best buddy ever since.
Because of renal insufficiency in Jan 2022, my vet thought shed only last 6 months to a year. She hung on much longer. Almost made it to January 2024. But she had a good life those 22 months.
She acquired an upper respiratory infection last month which seemed to clear up after getting an antibiotic injection. Then late last week she was diagnosed with an UTI after I saw blood in her urine.
She got an another antibiotic shot and she seemed to be doing better. Today not so much. Again blood in her urine with a constant need to urinate although there was very little urine. I called the Vet. He pretty much said she was failing. Along with the UTI not responding to the antibiotics and negative results in the blood panel he took last week. So had to make the hard decision.
I am going to miss my girl. But I believe shes in a better place.
