My DH and I have a cat named Cosmo and luckily he is healthy as can but my family cat the one I grew up with passed away today! 🙁 She used to be a big cat but she started losing a lot of weight but we at first thought it was due to depression, my mother passed away and Bella the cat was my mom’s baby. When she started losing too much weight we took her to the vets and at first the thought was she had diabetes and then when that was ruled out the vet told us her kidneys were inlarged and she had a bladder infection, Bella was given antibiotics but her kidneys were not shrinking and she was barely eating or drinking. We took her to the vets again because she was having problems with breathing, she was wheezing and he told us to use a humitifier to see if that would help because maybe if her sense of smell was normal she would get her appetite back. She was still not eating, drinking, using her litterbox and today we took her to the vets and we were told it would be in our best interest to put her down but we had to wait for my sister to come to say her final goodbyes but Bella unfortunately passed away before my sister got to say goodbye. I guess it was Bella’s time to go and we are still not sure exactly what was wrong with her, the vet said she probably had kidney cancer. I have very fond memories with Bella, it’s just a very sad day. I am going to give my kitty Cosmo a few extra cuddles tonight!
