Re: Sad cat news

Gosh, Auralie, I am so sorry about Sandy. I do agree with you, however, that letting her go now is probably the best for her. I've administered the treatment of injecting saline just under the skin of a cat, and it was not very pleasant for either of us. I think it might have extended the cat's life only a few months. This has truly been an awful summer for you, and, again, I am really sorry.

Subject: [CHAT] Sad cat news

Just had a call from the vet.  Sandy, our elderly, obese, arthritic, but
cat wasn't feeling well yesterday, and threw up repeatedly. We took her in
for tests.  Today she seemed much improved, but the vet says the tests
show almost complete kidney failure, and that her improvement was the
result of fluids they injected at the hospital yesterday. It looks as if the
treatment could be difficult, painful and complicated, and not at all
to work. So I guess it's time to let her go. I don't want to subject her to
a lot
of misery if it ultimately won't help.  We're going to be away in another
too, which would complicate matters. It makes me really sad, but I know I'd rather be put to sleep quietly than go through all sorts of treatments, so I
feel that's the best thing for her.
Just one more thing in this depressing summer.
