Kavi was a rescue kitty. She has been in my life now for 6 years. She is an Egyptian Mau mix – she has spots, even on her skin. She will mew about anything and everything, and has a million different voices. Her favorite thing to do is squeeze onto the couch next to me where there really isn’t room and purr like a freight train.
About a month ago, she started eating less and slowly dropping weight. She was still acting healthy and active until a few days ago. Now she can barely walk straight. She is quiet – only making one pained noise when something unwanted is occurring. She is not eating or drinking on her own. She does not run around to chase anything. She picks a strange spot and curls up there and stays.
I took her to the vet today. Blood tests came back positive for advanced renal failure. This condition is not reversible, but it can be managed if she responds to initial treatment. She is currently receiving this treatment, which includes IV fluids and potassium injections. I will find out the results on Saturday morning.
This treatment is costly. If she does respond, I may still need to provide her with subcutaneous fluids for a period afterward. I am not currently employed as I am beginning nursing school. I am asking for your help. She is still young and could have a full life ahead of her if this works, and I am not ready to give up on her yet.
