He's a 15yo male, and his mother, who I knew and fostered through pregnancy, was an oriental shorthair. I understand they can have these sorts of problems. He had no noticeable symptoms, and we only discovered this issue when he was being evaluated for an unrelated surgery. Essentially what I'm asking is, what does life look like for those of you with elderly HCM cats? I'm trusting my vet to come up with a treatment plan, but I don't benefit much from optimism. I find gritty realism soothing, I really do. If any of you have insights or anecdotes, please share. Thanks!
