I was checking some email the other night and happened to find this article about a fluid build up in cats called, Ascites. This is a pretty dangerous condition, and a lot of cats do not recover from Ascites. It can be painful too. I'll post a couple of links to the articles I found on the internet. I hope your cat or cats never get this condition. 😮 Glad I found these articles.

Fluid buildup isn’t really a condition in and of itself, it’s more of a symptom of something else.

Hi Just saw your reply. That's true. It could be related to some other form of illness. But I think it's serious when the fluid build up causes the death of your cat. It sounded pretty scary! :eek2:
