Can someone please help... My 7 year old grey tortoiseshell Cleo has recently become very ill. She drastically lost weight and she then began to wee in the house. I took her to the vet and her blood was tested for feline diabetes And kidney failure. I am expecting the results any day now but I know for a fact she is ill... Call it owners intuition. I am so desperate to help her but I know she's slowly leaving me and I'm finding it difficult to accept the fact my baby is dying... She's so young. This cat means more to me than anything in the entire world and I've wept constantly for days on end. Can anyone offer any grieving techniques or ways to help... I don't think my mood can sink any lower. Thank you all and hope all your furry, scaley or feathery babies are healthy and happy... I wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy. Holly ***

Hi, Holly, please permit me to offer you my sincerest condolences concerning your precious Cleo's health crisis. I know so very well from first hand experience with Anticipatory Grief how upset - - and terrified - - you are at the prospects of losing your precious Cleo.

Depending on the diagonsis and the accompanying prognosis, your veterinary care provider may be able to help stabilize your precious Cleo's health so that she can enjoy a good quality of life for awhile yet. It is excruciatingly painful to be waiting for test results all the while watching your beloved companion's health status decline.

Please know you and your precious Cleo are in my thoughts and prayers, Holly, please let us know how things go for your precious Cleo, and please know we are here for you.

Peace and blessings,
moon_beam

Hi Holly,

I'm so very sorry to read about Cleo. I just lost Kennedy, my little Yorkie, on March 3. Like you, I sensed that she was slipping away from me even before the vet said she was in renal failure. She'd already had congestive heart failure for two years. I only had her for five years as she spent the first part of her life in a puppy mill. I've had many pets over the years, but we had a special connection since she was with me through other places so I know how you must feel.

There are some wonderful books about pet loss and bereavement. Some are listed elsewhere on this website. A couple that I'm reading are: "When Your Pet Dies" by Alan D. Wolfelt and "Pet Loss" by Julia Harris. You might also consider participating in one of he pet loss groups online or in your area.

Please know you aren't alone in your feelings. Losing a beloved pet is one of life's most difficult experiences but, as one of my friends told me: "If we didn't love so much, we wouldn't hurt so badly." The capacity to love deeply is a gift that also opens us to great grief.

You and Cleo are in my thoughts. Let us know how you're doing.
Debbie

Hi, Holly

I am so sorry to hear about Cleo. Did you get your test results? My cat Tama was diagnosed with polycystic kidney disease (PKD) about a year ago. It's a congenital disease where multiple cysts develop in her kidneys over time. If Cleo has some sort of kidney malfunction (CKD - Chronic Kidney Failure or PKD), it's important to hydrate her. I wish I learned to give my Tama sub-Q fluid sooner (I started to give her daily sub-Q at home, but I think it was too late). There is a great resources over the internet about kidney disease (http://www.felinecrf.org/), and if Cleo's problem is indeed her kidneys, I highly recommend you visit the site.

All the love to you and to Cleo.

Hisae Y.

Hello,

Thank you so much for your kind words and support. I am sorry I haven't replied sooner - it seems my intuitions were wrong, my beautiful little girl is mine for a while longer. I had recently got a dog, a small pug. It seems as much as I tried to socialize them, Cleo was not happy with her there and thats why she was weeing, to mark her territory, and the stress made her lose weight. It seems like such a simple solution that I didn;t think of at the time, and its wonderful news to now know she is doing so well.

Im so sorry to hear about your experiences and wish you all the love in the world. Thank you!!!

Hi, Holly, thank you so much for sharing this wonderful news that your precious Cleo is doing well. Stress can indeed cause physical symptoms which can be relieved when the stress is reduced. I am soooo happy that your precious Cleo is once again doing well. May you and your precious Cleo continue to have a happy, healthy earthly journey.

Peace and blessings,
moon_beam
