Took him to the vet this afternoon to be re-assessed. Despite our subcutaneous fluid therapy this past week, he was dehydrated, had not eaten on his own for five days, his right kidney was shrunken to next to nothing, his left kidney was “huge” even more enlarged than last week and it was greatly enlarged last week. He was exhausted. Last night I slept with him on my bed and heard him purr a few times as I patted him and gently combed his coat. So upon the advice of the vet we put him down today at 3:30 p.m. I was holding him at the end. My little buddy is gone and I will never forget him. Beautiful cat, a great member of the family.
