Sad days ahead

My cat is sick.

Now, don't get me wrong. I'm not a "crazy cat lady"...but I love my kitty. I've had him since he was 6 weeks old. He was a good friend to me while I was suffering from depression. He was my constant companion when I was a stay at home mom, and he's moved cross country with me. Three times.

We took him to the vet this weekend, he wasn't eating and he was peeing all over the bathroom floor. When I found him this morning he was soaking wet from wetting on himself and covered in litter. I gave him a bath and realized for the first time how much weight he'd gone (It made The Kid gasp when she walked in and saw him dripping weight and nothing but bones.)

The vet thinks it's kidney failure :-( We've got him on special food and gave him some injections for dehydration, and we're keeping a close eye on him.

Keep him in your thoughts though OK? He's a special little guy and I'm not sure what I'd do without him!
