I am not a vet and can't even begin to understand the findings, however I do understand what you are saying. We had a cat who suddenly presented with a lot of fluid on the lungs. We asked for testing, but before we had it done, she passed away.

Unless you really want to know exactly what is going on, or if the vet can give you a glimmer of hope that whatever it is is curable, then you may be following the right track for you and your cat. So many times this fluid means something is going on that really has no cure.

As long as your cat seems comfortable, then you probably should do no more, provided you are ready to deal with some serious symptoms that may present somewhere down the line.However, think long and hard about this. I often wonder what happened to my kitty - my husband didn't want an autopsy to determine the cause of death. It might help you if you know exactly what you are up against, but again, this needs to be your call depending on the temprament of the cat.

Good luck!

Smile, it will make them wonder what you are up to!
