My childhood kitty has started taking a turn for the worst. She turned 17 last month and has been looking great. Had bloodwork done in July and came back with flying colors. Yesterday she slept all day and didn't wanna go out. Last night she was puking and having diarrhea. This morning didn't ask for her food, she LIVES for her food. It's like she totally forgot about her canned food. I checked her skin on her neck and my dad has showed me how to see if an animal is dehydrated and her skin was going down very slow. So I took off work and drove her to see my dad. She put up a big fight as usual. Her temp was fine. We took more bloodwork. My dad thinks she might be hyperthyroid. He let me bring her home while we wait for the results. Which takes 2 days. She looks even worse =(. My dad had me start her on a hunger stimulant. Not supposed to start working for 12 or more hrs tho. Poor Hanni =( She's been my kitty since I was 11. Please think of her and hope for the best peaceful end. She got so sick so fast. Gonna miss her! She has this little toy she has had since she was 6 weeks old. She carries it around in her mouth and cried looking for me. I think I am gonna try getting her cremated with it.
