he is in very end stage, end stage kidney failure...his bloodwork is back and it totally sucks. at 20 years old, the toughest cat in the world is teetering on the edge of going down. his vet trip yesterday took what little he had, right out of him..he was thin and frail when he left but he was solid on his feet...he is not solid anymore.
bond is still eating and drinking (a ton!) but if he doesn't get some of his super cat strength back by tomorrow, i am going to have to let him go. he did make it over to the sink a few minutes ago to have a drink from the faucet..which meant he had to jump down from the laundry room counter, jump over the laundry room gate and up onto the kitchen counter and he managed that pretty well.
so hope is still floating for a little while more for our bond...at least for tonight...and i will never again mess around with a hanging in there, 20 year old cat even if i do want to know for sure if it is kidneys or thyroid..that was a very bad decision....rule number one with ancient cats...do not try to fix what is probably pretty close to broken.
love ya bond...catch your second breath, forgive me and keep being strong!
