I can't believe it's been four weeks since we said goodbye to this little guy. Somehow it feels like months have gone by and like it just happened yesterday, all at the same time. Does that make sense to anyone else?

Caturday & having a leisurely morning. As a cat, is there any other? #ckdcats #ckdcat #blackpanther #blackcats.matter #blackcats #blackcatsofinstagram

The Dowager rouses her staff every morning (as she has for years) for her breakfast. She is served but does not eat. Water is her only intake. Is this the music we must face? 🎻🎼🎶🤦🏼‍♀️#ckdcats #ckdcat

Consultation time with the vet. Took the patient home. We’re wide awake & smelling the coffee. ☕️☕️😢☕️☕️#ckdcats #ckdcat

Hanging in there though life with CKD is heartless. There’s handwriting on the wall—don’t 👀!

My beautiful albeit slightly rumpled Grandma. Grandma is not doing very well- she's possibly CKD stage 3, with protein loss in pee >1. Dr D has got Grandma on a bunch of new meds and fluids.
.
In the meantime, Grandma has gone off her food, so I'm support feeding her 3 times a day, which she pretty readily accepts. She's not using the litter box though (dunno if she's forgetting things or just too tired/lazy), so we're going through lots of pee pads.
.
We're keeping our fingers crossed and hoping that Grandma responds well to her new treatment- will find out at her review at the end of August. Since starting the new meds and fluids, Grandma seems a bit more energetic, but I really hope she starts eating by herself soon.

I never complain when I get to spend extra time with Eli 💝

she’s constantly bored with sleeping spots & so I’m always thinking of new ways to trick her into comfort

Our little boy ❤️ We miss him so much, but looking through photos and remembering the good times is helping us heal.

#widgetthecat understands the feeder opens at certain times...trust me, she knows those times for sure. Yet she doesn't quite get why it won't open other times. It's the best feeder I've used to date. Yes there are flaws (she's obsessed with it a bit), but she's not bothering me for breakfast/lunch/dinner/snacks 24/7, she's down a full pound and we were able to allow our other kitty as much access while limiting the fatty. All in all, worth it. @animalsbeingfat #wirelesswhiskers #chunkamonk #felinefriday #vettechmom #diet #fatty #gettinghealthy #ibd #ckdcat #polydactyl #hemingwaycat #adoptdontshop

One of the last photos I took of Toby - after fluids on Sunday night. It wasn't his favourite thing in the world, but he never held it against us. Even on the nights it didn't go so well he'd come straight back for cuddles. But I'm glad that it went well that last time 💕

I am constantly zooming into the bathroom whenever anyone goes in and demanding the bath tub faucet be turned on. This is a new thing ever since Mom showed me a few weeks ago that not only the sink faucet turned on🛁 #spoiled #idowhatiwant #keephydrated ~Fatso

We said goodbye to our little Toby today. The kidney disease had progressed to such a point that no matter what we did it wasn't enough. Thanks those who have given support and kind words throughout, it means so much.

The positions this cat sleeps in #catsofinstagram #oldcat #oneeyedcat #ckdcat

Mr Straxy is doing ok so far, I think. Since starting him on 1/4 pill Cerenia daily (which is expensive at $12/pill), he has got his appetite back and is generally perkier.
.
He's also on mirtazapine, which makes a difference, but isn't enough without the cerenia. His (pricy but necessary) fentanyl patch is also helping greatly with pain management.
.
My vet says to treat the cat, not the numbers (ie blood test result figures). Although he is classified as stage 4 CKD, I think ol' Straxy is doing pretty ok on his current regime.
