I tried the lower protein food, but the problem is I have 2 kittens who will eat that instead of their kitten chow and Chloe will eat the kitten chow and not the low protein food. There's no way to separate them either.

I went to the vet's today to get anti-nausea medicine and was told there was no such thing. But they offered it to my 15 yr old cat who died of kidney failure. They then told me that there was absolutely nothing they could do, no advice they could give me, until I had a $110.00 blood work-up done. When I advised them I didn't have this kind of money, they offered me a $65 well being blood workup. Nope, don't have that either.

Told them she went from 9 to 8 lbs. fast and I am worried about her and don't know if she'll make it until the middle of February, when my husband will be home to visit. I want him to be able to say goodbye. I then asked if the vet would charge me to put Chloe to sleep and she told me yes, $30.

This is a cat whose owner already paid $30 to have her put to sleep and the vet kept the cat, without the owner's knowledge, instead. Since the only care the cat was getting was food and water and litter box cleaning, I asked the vet if I could take her home with me. He laughed, said sure but I wouldn't have her for long. That was TWO YEARS ago. Chloe was 16 when I took her, she will be 18 next month but the woman at the front desk argued with me and told me Chloe was still 16!

Today has been the craziest day ever. Poor Chloe.
