Not looking good

Another post about our kitty.

We took him to the vet this morning. He is dehydrated, but worse, his temperature is three degrees below normal. The vet said that is typically a sign that "they are on their way out."

We left him there as they are going to run blood tests and give him an IV.

It doesn't look good, in all honesty.

Thomas has been bawling all morning. This is the cat who sleeps with him every night. This is the cat who lies on his math book and bats his pencil during school. This is the cat we love with all our hearts -- all three humans in the house.

This is just out of the blue. Oh, so sad.

I'm so, so sorry to hear this. I know how attached we all get to our four-legged family members. I'll be thinking of all of you today.

Poor kitty. I feel awful for him and for you and your family.

Does he have Chronic Renal Failure?
My kitty died from it(well actually we ended his pain) a year and a bit ago.
Your kitty's symptoms sound similar.

I'm so sorry. I read your first post this morning & I've been thinking about you guys all day, wondering how your precious friend was doing.

Sending lots of hugs your way -- for all of you & the kitty too.
