My elderly PersianxRagdoll cat went missing for 4 days, i found him under someones hedge yesterday afternoon. Since having him home he wont eat and he barely drinks any water.
Last night he projectile vomited all over my bed, the floor and some of the wall and i have since noticed that he has urine constantly leaking from his privates.
He's in a bad way.
But here is the clincher, i recently got ill and had to give up work, surviving on welfare and i wish i had the money to try fix anything wrong but, i just don't.
My mother says i should just let him sit and wait for him to get better but he is suffering.
I feel its the best thing to do is get him put down even though i don't want to part from him.
I need guidance.
pic related. Him about 9 years ago.
You are in a difficult place.
You should do what is in the best interest of the cat.
Defiantly consult with the local humane society to see if any help is available.
The end of a life is always a sad difficult thing to experience.
I wish you the best.
I just know i have no money and vets don't let you make weekly payment plans. He's sitting there licking himself constantly trying to clean the urine up. Its no way for a gentleman to live.
I wish more than anything i could make him better and not have to kill him.
He broke his tail like 5 years ago, and the vet i had previously spent hundreds nutering and vaccinating him at wouldnt let me have a payment plan with them, then they scolded me for not having money to pay in full.
I ended up loaning money from my parents.
I'm already paying $50 a week out of my welfare on medical bills that were around $4000.
I just feel like putting him down is my only option. But it feels terrible.
It sounds like he might be poisoned
How about instead of putting him down, you bring him to a shelter. If they can help him, he lives; if not, at least you gave him a shot. Don't put him down if it's not his only option. Wouldn't you rather he gets to live even if he might be adopted by someone else once he's better?
That would be nice. I tried calling places but its a public holiday.
And if they are going to kill him i want to bury him here but if i sign him over i lose any right to him.
I am really at a loss. He's been my soul companion for years, some days he is the only living thing i talk to.
Your vet sounds like a dick. But the shelter idea might work. I suppose it's better than nothing.
I do know how you feel though. I had a kitty back when I was 20. He was totally fine and healthy and then over the course of 2 days just deteriorated. The vet had no idea what was wrong and so I decided to put him down rather than having them run $2000 of tests (I had no credit back then). I just found out that this last year that is what probably kidney stones because his sister got them but managed to pass them.
Thanks. I'm going to do my best for him. But i'm not going to prolong his suffering.
He honestly has a shit personality but he's my buddy
>his face when my mum gave him cat mint.
My mum is lending me $200 to get him checked out and stuff.
He ate a few small bites of food and drank a lot of water this morning. He seems happier but his back end is sore and he is still leaking urine.
Its 10am now and i'm calling local vets
Tests from the vet show he has failing kidneys. And it will be extremely costly to prolong his kidney life.
I have to put him down
>at the vet now
dats life anon, sucks shit but you knew it would happen someday. My kitty is nearing 9 years old, she seems healthy enough atm but i really need to start saving to get her checked up on here soon
i've had this broken tailed bitch since i was 16, best kitty ever, but if im lucky she could live til 20 and be ok, thats how my grandpas cat ended up, like 22 and looks like she is 12 y/o kitty, but she is healthy as fuck for being so old.
