I'm meant to be revising for exams today, but i really can't concentrate.



My old girl isn't well, she's been vomitting quite a bit, and the last time it was just foam. She's been meowing a lot, and it sounds like she's in pain. She's now dribbling a lot. I have no idea what's up with her.



She's going to the vets in a bit, i'm worried about her

Kidney disease is quite manageable with dietary change, vitamins, and sub-q fluids. I've seen kidney cats live years with kidney disease quite happily. Don't get too discouraged!

I was wondering if it was Susie...I'm sorry the news isn't good. \\

I had a cat die a while back from kidney failure...her name was Chelsea and she was 13, but if I remember correctly she had cancerous tumors on her kidneys.
