I'm sorry for the loss of your beautiful kitty . Tonight is last night with mine .painful
Sounds similar to my Calico girls decline...same weight too. Zika was lucky to have you advocate for her and support her until the end. Until you meet again one day, and she will get SO many tummy rubs.Thanks to all who’ve responded so far!
Zika’s health started to decline around last Christmas or Thanksgiving. She lost body weight (from 10 to 7 pounds), and the vet gave her a shot - steroids I think - which improved her appetite and temporarily fostered weight gain. That, along with some pills mixed into some canned cat food, which she wolfed down.
Then she stopped eating enough and just sat all day. She wouldn’t eat much of anything. She still loved me and appreciated my petting her, as she showed by leaning into it.
When I took her to the vets last Thursday the doc said she’d fallen to 4.5 pounds and she was all yellow in the mouth. He said she would die soon, so he recommended euthanasia. Bummed out, but it had gotten obvious that her health was failing.
