    Older cat drinking lots of water- Kidneys fine

    My cat Monte has been diagnosed with kidney issues and he's on the K/D (wet and dry food) I notice that he'll sometimes drink water for a couple of minutes after he has eaten. Is it good for cats with kidney issues to drink more water? Or should we be concerned?

    Thanks! His nose often changes colour. When he's sleepy or calm it's a pale pink colour and if he's excited or playing his nose gets all bright pink!

    Thanks for the nice compliment RascalShadow:) Monte can be very friendly when he wants to be but on his own terms. He doesn't like it when anyone is too clingy with him or when someone holds him too tight. He's most affectionate at bedtime when he wants to cuddle near my pillow.

    My cat Monte just got his blood work back - kidney values are a bit high

    I'll look into the Weruva I'll have to look into the Weruva brand of cat food. We're lucky that Monte will eat almost any brand of cat food. The only brands he doesn't like are the ones that are a lot like people food. Monte is still in very good health. His appetite is very good and his coat...

    My cat Monte just got his blood work back - kidney values are a bit high

    I really appreciate the link to the kidney cats website. It has some very helpful information. I may stop giving Monte the Wellness dry food as he doesn't eat it that often.

    To Philovance: Thank you so kindly for the information and your well wishes for Monte. Hopefully the prescription diet will help Monte. We're fortunate that Monte isn't a picky eater and hopefully he'll like the food.

    My cat Monte just got his blood work back - kidney values are a bit high

    My cat Monte is 12 years old and we just got the bloodwork back from his checkup. Our vet said that his bloodwork was okay except his kidney levels were higher. I'm not familiar with the numbers or what they mean but our vet said that normal kidney levels should be at at 150 and Monte's was at...

    They are very cute, as everyone else has said! Maybe she can use them as toy litter-boxes for her daughter's toy cats?

    I'm sorry that you didn't have success with the Greenies pill pockets. Perhaps they aren't as effective with the worming pills. Maybe you could try giving Mercutio the pill pockets on their own so that he could get used to them? I've been using Greenies for at least two years and they work...

    I'm so, so very sorry for the loss of your beloved cat. You have my deepest sympathy. That is such a horrible thing to happen to your sweet, precious kitty. I hope that you get restitution from the company that is responsible for this tragedy. That is why I don't like to use any flea treatments...

    Prozac in kitties?

    That's wonderful to hear that Maple is doing so well on the Prozac! I believe that the Prozac is helping Maple be the cat she's supposed to be. More playful and happy. Prozac is very safe as long as the vet is monitoring Maple to see how she's doing on it. Like with my cat Monte, he's been on...
