Hello friends... I am not doing well. It’s been some a rough few days. As you know, on Friday I went for my bi-annual kidney check because of my kidney disease. It all looked great and my friend @vetondutyii was happy with my results. But over the weekend I stopped eating entirely and got mum very worried. So on Monday morning mum took me back to @bakenkopanimalclinic they were so good to me, had a good look at everything and even did an abdominal scan for me (that’s why I have a bare belly in this pic)! All looked good so they suspected I had gastroenteritis which would explain why I didn’t want to eat. So they have me nausea meds and an appetite stimulant and sent me on my way. When I got home I started leaking urine 😰and so mum called @bakenkopanimalclinic again and they asked to see me again. Mum took me back in. They then said I have stress related cystitis 😖 and gave me a mild tranquilizer and anti inflammatory for my bladder, and I went home and managed to eat something. The leaky bladder continued through the night and I didn’t get any sleep 😰by this morning I was lying very still and not moving so mum again asked the vets what to do and they suggested I come back in-the fourth time in three days 😖😖😖 I am now admitted into the hospital and they are giving me fluids and observing me... all while mum is going crazy with worry. I hope I get better soon 😞#cats #catsofinstagram #catlove #sickcat #sickdays #ckdcat #keepmeinyourprayers

🥁 Six years ago Kitty came in to my life. Her previous owners did not share much, but she must have been four years old then. She is my family and work mate too. She is my GP and my therapist. Her kidneys are failing, but we’re not giving up. Happy Birthday Kitty #kitty #whitecat #whitekitty #happybirthdaykitty #happybirthday #feline #cat #gato #gatto #katze #caternity #kot #kotek #kicikicimaj #ilovemycat #amomigato #selfie #love #ckdcat 🎈❤️🐾 #matkazcorka #mojkotjestseniorem #kotnabarfie

This old cat. She was always a loner. Never slept with me. Sought out attention on her terms. And now, at 16 years and 7 months, she’s sleeping with me, being very verbal about wanting pets even waking me up in the middle of the night. Soaking it all in as we don’t know how much longer we have with her. #ckdcat #catsofinstagram #tortiesofinstagram

We’ve been away from this account for a while because we’ve been hit by our own kind of typhoon the past weeks. (Our hearts go out to those affected by Typhoon Mangkhut and Hurricane Florence, esp shelters and animals that were affected.) .
.
Since weeks back, I had a gut feeling that something was off with Zoii, despite her not showing any symptoms outrightly. It was just a gut feel. A week into September, the symptoms started to show. She didn’t finish her meals, her eyes looked different and she stopped disturbing us during human mealtimes. .
.
On 120918, my beloved most precious Zoii was hospitalized for a ‘kidney relapse’. And this time was the worst because even after a week warded with IV fluids, her levels did not drop. They remained crazy high, at 3 times the worst levels, equivalent to (way beyond) stage 4 of kidney failure. It’s not supposed to be surprising; I was anticipating this everyday since 4 years ago when our vet diagnosed her with having deformed kidneys resulting in the kidneys not able to function properly. (Her U/S shows her kidneys looked shrivelled and small; similar to that of a senior cat dying at the final stage of kidney failure. And she was only a wee thing then)
.
So we made a conscious decision to bring her home where she wouldn’t be so stressed and would at least have us around. She’s always been a clingy cat, quite literally. She’s like my baby monkey. (: and I understand very well that she’d never be happy in a clinic for too Long. Her IV drips made no difference, the meds and supplements administered by the clinic didn’t either, there was nothing more they could do. Plus they had a hard time trying to syringe-feed her. Bringing her home was also sensible. .
But she wasn’t her herself anymore. She stayed inside her carrier for two whole days, not wanting to eat or drink on her own. She was all skin and bones; so dehydrated. She deteriorated so quickly during the clinic stay, I had no idea. And I was heartbroken. I was totally gutted. Because this is Zoii. I’m still trying to be pragmatic and practical about this. It’s so tough though. But we will fight with you, Zoii. #zoiiislife #homeofhawahandicats #clingycats #ckdcat
