I'm only 15, the cat was 13, we got her when she was very young (from a shelter, probably to young to accually be away from the mom, but the mom was dead) I grew up with her. Last week, I noticed little things, like she was walking slower, laying down more, not eating or drinking as much. My sister thought I was crazy..my parents took her to the vet and, she was getting better, then got really worst. She stopped eating completely, had to get fed with an eyedropper ect..we kept taking her to the vet and she was on medicine, but she died today. I am so upset.
