My handsome boy has me well trained
Vita took out the pink cushion when it was really hot and humid last July, and sat inside. 🥰
Look back at last posts if you are interested to learn about and see how amazing and cute of a cat my 19 year old Lula is.
Well obviously she’s old and has been losing mass over the past couple years, but she was very stable up until this week. She has barely eaten or drank this week and she is getting thinner and her back legs weaker.
My questions is this: Is it ok if she only eats a tube of churu a day? That’s all she will eat. She hasn’t been touching her dry or wet food. Last night I got her to drink/ eat some tuna water? Any tips on getting cats to eat more or how to deal with this issue. I’m hoping she is having an off week, which she has has in the past before.
We are taking her to the vet tomorrow morning. I feel terrible because the vet and the car ride is the most stressful thing for her. We wanted to have a mobile vet come to our apartment but the soonest appointment is Friday.
Anyways just looking for whatever I may get out of this post. Keep loving your senior kitties. There is nothing more precious than an old cat… especially if you have him/her since they were a baby!
I've had her since I was 15 so we've been together for half of my life. I couldn't have asked for a better kitty than her.
Does anyone have any experience with this? She is definitely acting different too. Not showing up for meals as usual. Moving much slower. Isolating more.
She started Solensia shots a few months ago for arthritis. It gives her good relief for the first few weeks but I'm wondering if she "goes too hard" during those feeling-good weeks & this is the result.
Her nails are all trimmed because of hyperthyroidism so it's not nails. I put my ear right to her and heard it. It's not every time she moves. Sounds like when my wrist snaps.
Any experience with this is welcome. She is going to the vet this week for her shot, but it's the weekend and I'm worried.
