sorry I didn’t get back to you before..
I took me some time to swallow the bitter news (really bad results from the old pal’s tests) and make up my mind.. in the end me and my sis decided to let him live the happiest days from now on, there’ll be less of them, but at least ones worth living..
his renal condition is shitty enough, we reckon it’s fair to spare him five days long IV sessions – alone in a cage all day – and all sorts of medications – 3/4 times a day – he never accepted willingly anyways (and this is underestimating the torturous process of making him swallow a pill or a liquid)
since I found him lurking in the kitchen more than 10 years ago, all I wanted for him was the best cat-life possible.. and I’d insist with all that’s necessary if there was a sense in pursuing this path ..but the results speak for themselves, I see him getting more and more tired day by day and I feel it’s right to respect him till the very end, even if this means spending less days with him..
I wouldn’t want that kind of life for myself, let alone one of my dearest friends..
