I am hoping for the best. I read blogs where cats quit eating and were sick for weeks and then got better. My “little Widgit” has been losing weight and eating less for months. 3 days ago she quit eating regularly but would eat Ahi and Jerky. 2 days ago she quit drinking. She slept most the day but she still had bright eyes and would leap between the countertop and dining table.
Today, she just growls at us to stay away.
We have a vet appointment at 10:00.
I know Widgit is 14 years old. When we moved to Maui, we paid $1000+ to confirm she has a heart condition that they can do little about. We paid another $350 in tests to find out she had sign of early kidney failure; we bought her special vet food that after 4 days she decided she hated. We kept her on it while she lost weight and learned to forage for food.
I keep telling myself that things always happen in 3’s. A good friend in Maui had her dear old cat run away 3 weeks ago; my friend Tamara lost her Zeke suddenly to a brain tumor; my sister Karin lost her precious dog Molly earlier this week. That’s 3 so we should be fine.
Hoping and praying and crying…
