    Sick Cat

    Smokey has been diagnosed with pancreaitis and possible early stage kidney failure. He's exhibiting some other behavior that makes me suspect he is in pain. Ultrasound will be today.

    His FIV status complicates things.

    The ultrasound results came back, and they were not good. I already had reached the conclusion that Smokey was getting worse and he wasn't eating or drinking. So, based on the vet's opinion that Smokey had probably a cancer of the bowels, and that the quality of life was iffy, I chose to let Smokey go.

    he had a good three years with me.

    I'm so sorry. After my previous cat died from kidney failure oh, at least ten years or more ago, I had no intention of ever getting another. But a few weeks after my dad passed from thyroid cancer in Oct. 2010, Banjo showed up here, and he's been here since.

    It's hard knowing they're sick, and not being sure *how* sick, or how much effort and money to expend on helping them.
