Pixie Cat

Pixie is totally my baby. We got her in August of 1995 - yes, that makes her almost 15 years old! Sadly, on Friday we took her to the vet we found that she has Kidney Disease. From what I gathered from the tone of the Dr, if she improved over the weekend, she had a chance, if she didn't well, we'd be looking at a very gloomy Monday.

Happily, she has improved over this weekend. She's eating - and not only foods she likes, but a special kidney diet. She's drinking and she's taking her medicine.

This doesn't mean that she's out of the woods, it's simply means that she's doing better. Kidney disease in cats can be managed, but it can't be cured. We are basically buying her time. How much time - I haven't a clue. We might be talking days or weeks. I am doubtful that it's years, but I am hoping for months.

Pixie was our "baby" for 5 years before our 1st child was born. She'll always be my baby.
