Aw Trish that's terrible. I'm so sorry to hear about this. I know how you're feeling.
And no they're never "just a cat" or "just a dog" as Idiot has put it several times.
Ticks me off to no end because I feel as if all my pets are my children.
It's heartbreaking. I'll be thinking of you and Lily. Sending you warm hugs and good vibes.

So sorry to hear the news PW----I don't know what is worse--knowing ahead of time that their end might be near or passing on like our dear Tiffany (a silver chinchilla persian---think of Jeekinz's avatar without the watermelon hat). We had her for about 13 years and my daugher and I came home from shopping one afternoon and she had gone to "sleep" in the back yard. We both hung on to each other and just cried. Her boyfriend buried her in our backyard. All Tiffany lived for was to lay in your lap and be petted. I miss her purring and sleeping next to me. Sorry, I've got to stop.

Sorry to hear about Lily. Hopefully she will carry on - often the blindness does not affect their daily life when things are stable.

One of cats went blind many years ago but as we had two young children, the house was very chaotic and it was better for him to be put to sleep as the noise and continual changes to the environment was causing him a lot of stress.

Well, it's her thyroid.
I'm so glad her kidneys are ok.
Poor cat will have to take half of a tiny pill two times a day and she'll never get her eyesight back but...she'll live and we'll make sure that she's happy and well loved.

Oh, Trish, what a relief! I know it's not a perfect diagnosis, but you will be a caring mommy and daddy and love her through it. Just scoop her up and give her a nice long cuddle. Make that a daily prescription. Hugs to you and dear Lily.

Bittersweet, but good news.
