I heard the sad news that a friend had to put his young cat down last night.
It put things in perspective for me. If I do nothing, Coke has less than a year. If I keep him on the meds and feed him a special diet, I may be able to buy him a couple of years. It has only been a few weeks, but I have to keep trying. I will get some more blood tests done in a couple of months to see if things have slowed down.
Everyone's pet is special, but Coke has always been an old soul in a cat's body. He is worth all the effort!
