Hey everyone! I know I don't talk much on here but right now, I could use some kind words. As some of you may know from my previous posts on here, I have two cats. (Technically three for the moment.) One is now 15 and is semi feral. He, like all my animals, was a rescue from a hoarding/breeding situation. Unfortunatly, since the cold weather started, he's been 'going' in the house and we cannot use litter because as soon as it's in the house, my younger cat claims it and there's nowhere to put it to prevent that. (And preventing her from doing so causes her to become uncontrollably aggressive as well as her peeing and vomiting everywhere she can in retaliation.) However, today we noticed a lot of blood in his stool and urine. While he doesn't seem to be in pain, he also stopped eating today. The soonest the vet can see him is between this Friday and Monday. We're all heartbroken over this as we wanted one last Christmas with him. But, obviously keeping him around will be putting our wants over his needs and impact whatever quality of life he has right now. I have lost many animals (cats, dogs, rodents, even fish) but it never seems to get easier.
