Thanks for posting your situation. I am in a similar predicament and am spending myself into debt with little answers. I noticed my cats potassium is low as per the bloodwork so I may try the Renal K plus. In my experience with a previous cat with kidney disease, I got more help from the support groups/forums than the vets. I only used them for diagnostics and emergencies. My cat is straining a lot and wearing himself out in the process but has passed tiny poos; for a almost 20lb male cat that's not a lot. I'm stumped too...glad I see your cat pooped. I hope mine does soon.
Hoping your cat gets relief soon! This site Tanya's Comprehensive Guide to Feline Chronic Kidney Disease - Everything You Need to Know to Help Your Cat (felinecrf.org) has a lot of good information that you might find helpful, and there is a support group associated with it too. I had a better experience there as well. What have you tried for your cat so far?

Thanks. I joined the megacolon group also and my old CKD group membership was still active. I will definitely use their info for constipation. Rocky is at the ER getting cleaned out and fluids. He needs a fresh start and I will restart miralax (increased) when he returns with cisapride probably. I have his diet pretty well managed I think (learned the hard way) but he also has allergies that sometimes exacerbate his constipation. Weird. I'm feeling better about things but will be glad when he's home!
