FU: Sick Kitty

While every vet was convinced that it was IBD, my cat was unresponsive to IBD treatments and an intestinal biopsy ultimately showed extensive cancer.

By the time we got the diagnosis, her kidneys were shutting down and she had lost bowel-control. She could barely tolerate food. We lost her last night.

She seemed perfectly healthy a month ago. Not a clue that this was coming.

Hug your pets, folks.

Oh, too bad. Sorry about this sadness.

Sad news – I'm so sorry to hear about your poor kitty and her last month of illness and distress. Hope you have many happier memories of her, from what I'm sure was a very good life with you and your family.

I'm sorry to hear about your kitty passing. Ours died in a similar fashion last year, she became lethargic and expressed a waning interest in food. The death of a pet is difficult, no matter what non-pet owners say.

Sorry to hear it. 17 is a decent age and it's unfortunate it ended on a sad note... RIP, Pixie.

So sorry for your loss.

Cats and dogs too, are masters at covering up illness - so by the time they show symptoms, illness is fairly advanced - cancer is such a dreadful disease, and so hard to find in our fur kids.

Sorry to hear the news. The same thing happened to our girl last fall. The big "C" is awful, our cat went from normal to deathly ill in only 10 days so it was a real shocker. My deepest condolences.

I was thinking about Pixie last night and worrying that the lack of an update indicated sad news. As others have noted, 17 is a pretty good run and you did all you could. I'm very sorry for your loss.

I'm so sorry. She has excellent company waiting for her as I know many MRFers (including me) have lost our beloved cats in the past few years.

Condolences from me and Cooper dog-

^^^ Agree 100%. Your cat lived the best life a cat could live - a cat with a home, not just an address, and people who obviously cared deeply about her.

Condolences from our family to yours. Your kitty must be hanging ten with our first dog Einstein in pet's heaven now. Since our boy's passing we are keenly aware of how quickly our pets grow from puppyhood to seniorhood. There are valuable lessons we all can learn from them: forgive easily, play more, love truly and live life to the fullest.



SoCal for now.

Sorry Doc. I've seen a fair number of Kitties go under all different circumstances, but it always hurts the same.

So sorry for your loss. We lost our Whitey 2 weeks ago tomorrow. Had noticed no problems and she let out a loud yelp then started bleeding. Took her to the vet and blood tests showed the kidneys shutting down.

So sorry to hear of this too... Our cats are our kids. It's tough when animals become ill and they can't tell you what's wrong and you can't explain it to them.
