I am new to being a cat cartaker (I'm not an owner, cause he owns ME!)
I have never had a cat in my life, don't know anything about cats. I adopted Astro a year ago on the 30th of March, he was 11 at the time.
I just got back from the vet. Astro is severly dehydrated (but he drinks water like it is going out of style!) and has a significant weight loss. As soon as we adopted him, we took him in for shots and a check up. He as 11.4 pounds then. Today he was 7.4 pounds. I knew he looked frail, but I thought it may be old cat syndrom.
The vet said it may be either diabetes or renal failure. I can't lose another baby. I lost my Grizzly last May, and 3 years before in May I lost my Kodiak (both dogs).
I'm so scared. I feel like I let him down. I didn't know he was sick! I asked people I know that have cats, and they said cats lose weight in the spring, and look skinny cause they lose their hair.
Please pray for my Astro.
God, don't take another from me....
Please!
