    Wow, that's unfortunate, sorry you all have to deal with that.
    I can definitely believe there are transplant lists for them though, people go to (sometimes insane) lengths to keep a pet around. Part of me gets it, but also, its not fun for them going through all that trauma either.

    Yeah cats and kidney issues are unfortunately common.

    my ex had an older cat that got kidney issues and we had to hold her down and give her subcutaneous bags of fluid morning and night until the poor thing filled up like a camel and was hydrated until the next time. Felt cruel tbh and eventually she decided it was better to let go and not have her suffer any more.

    I'm really sorry to hear that :(:( losing a pet unexpectedly really really sucks especially when they're so young.

    I would agree with keeping the other kitty at home to avoid traumatizing them with the vet association. Pets are intuitive with that stuff and they may have already had an understanding that their friend was ill in some sorts.

    If you can do a home visit it is a good option.

    We said our goodbyes to Bert at Thanksgiving and at home he was able to be more comfortable. molly was around and was able to get some closure. I'm glad I went that route and i don't think it cost much more than doing it at the vet.

    I know there's probably not much any of us can do but let us know if we can help somehow

    Thanks, it's extra rough cause she's so young and supposed to outlive the older cat.

    I'm sorry your parents are going through it as well :(

    If you find someone to do a home euthanasia will you let me know, I'd like to give them that option too. They live close to you

    Thank you

    I'm sorry you had to do that for your Thanksgiving but I'm hope it's some closure they're not suffering anymore. That's uplifting to here Molly got some closure as well

    Absolutely, I'll keep you posted. Haven't discussed with the wife yet but I'm confident she'll want the in home option

    Considering how much of a hard on the feds get for crushing a 2000 Mini Cooper and other random uninteresting illegally imported cars, I guarantee those Jimnys won't last long.

    I see modern Hiluxs driving around with Texas plates occasionally but I bet they're just using random Texas plates they had on hand illegally.

    I can't imagine how that must feel right now, I'm really sorry to hear about this :(

    I know I'm late to this but I would look to see if you can have anything done at home; I know when I lost Jacquee, Rocky (my cousins dog) would often look for her. Just sniff around, and walk about the place over and over completely ignoring everyone and everything around her as if confused cause she was nowhere to be found. I don't know if the sudden disappearance was worse but I would say if you have to put her down, maybe in the company of family would be in her best interest.

    @Kwikvette @Wulf @eon_blue @01x4 @Speedytech7

    Thank you again guys for your input, just got home from the hospital. Her levels didn't improve and are still 5x the normal limit, they recommended putting her down right then. Thankfully I found a company called "Lap of Love" that is local and will do in home euthanasia. They had a local doctor with an appointment available tomorrow so I scheduled it

    Having her home tho is so hard cause she's not acting in pain at all even still bright eyed and bushy tailed.... but I know it's time because she's still refusing to eat even with being given an appetite booster.


    I can't say goodbye tomorrow, I'm going to call them back in the morning and see if I can push it off for just one more day

    I actually have experience both ways but with different pets. For a cat I don't think I would bring it with, unless they were unusually bonded for cats. I remember my parents' cats were well into their teens when they started having issues. One kind of just passed, and the other had to be given fluid injections for another two years before he passed. It's my opinion that the cat is much less likely to understand what's going on at the vet than a dog. And they get much more traumatized with travel, so they'll likely be in survival mode and not be paying attention anyway.

    When I was in high school, our two dogs got out. We didn't realize they were gone until an hour later and went searching for a while. My dad finally found one when he took the car out on the main road. She had gotten hit and killed nearly instantly. The guy who hit her was able to identify which direction the other ran. My dad eventually caught up with her. So the scenario was that they had traveled together down the street and Bella (the survivor, who's still hanging around today), was with Chloe when she was hit. Bella never went around looking for Chloe after that - she knew what happened. We also never had issues with her running out after that - and she had always been the instigator.

    Ya...was traumatic for all of us really. (mom, brother, sister too)

    I remember jogging down to the guy who pulled over and I think he was worried I was going to deck him.



    Edit: oh and I didn't see the at-home thing before. I think that's a good alternative and I wish you all well. This sucks :(
