Afternoon everyone I have not posted for quite a while as I have been beside myself with worry about one of my cats, Spuddy. I have 2 cats, the other one being Whiskey. Spuddy for the last month or so has been drinking a lot so the family took him to the vet and his bloods came back all clear apart from a problem, albeit the vet said nothing alarming just yet with pottasium levels. Anyway, the last 2 weeks or so we have noticed that he has lost a bit of weight as his collar is becoming very loose although he is still eating, his nose is still wet and he is still purring but he is sleeping a bit more than normal and generally not like he was although he is in no way suffering. Spuddy was taken overnight for a urine test the other day and I am waiting for the results of these which should be this week. The one consolation is I noticed his behaviour change early so whatever it is hopefully it has been caught early enough - on the other hand it is my nature to expect the worst as I am generally a negative person and suffer with depression - I have even taken today off work sick to be with him even though I know I should just get on with things. My other cat, Whisky knows something is wrong as he is acting funny and when his brother was in hospital he roamed the house looking for him. I have a horrible feeling it is something like cancer but bloods would have shown that wouldn't they? Maybe it is the start of kidney problems as I know cats are prone to this in their older age - I am beside myself with worry as I don't want to lose my baby even though nothing is known yet. I know should the outcome be the worst I have to follow the vets advice, I will not watch him suffer if the prognosis is bad but I also hope he can be treated - I guess I am thinking too far ahead at the moment. Sorry for the ramble I just thought I would post up how I am feeling at the moment as he means the world to me - his personality, his affection etc.
