When Enough is Enough

I’ve been here before. An aging cat with kidney disease needs special care and treatment, but at some point will die from the same disease.

Kidney disease is a slow breakdown of the cat’s ability to live a decent life. What is ‘decent’? That depends on what you and the cat are used to.

There’s a few things to remember:

  1. Have they stopped doing the things they love?
  2. Have they stopped cleaning themselves or eating?
  3. Would you want the animal’s life to be like it is right now?
  4. Are you willing to let it get worse? (doing so may mean it gets better)
  5. Will your lack of resources make the animal’s suffering worse?

If you’re still confused, contact me. I read animals and I’ll be happy to let you know what’s going on with your dear friend. paulabowden.com
