It really just makes me so sad. I agree, teens do think they're invincible. I can't imagine the guilt being felt by the young driver. I don't think they realize how life can change so suddenly and drastically with one decision. Car accidents are the number one killer of teens.

The accident that happened last year was a 16 year old going 70 in a 25, on a road with a lot of hills. They were trying to "catch some air," it cost a 14 year old boy his life.

We are washing and nearly sterilizing everything she use or comes in contact with. Itís been crazy. Thanks Michele.
So sorry Charlie D that you and your family are having to deal with all that.....when it rains it showers. I hope and pray it'll all do a complete turn around very soon and things get back to normal.

CJ, and Cora, bless your precious little ones that they have such excellent, wise guardians by their sides. I can trust that they will be kept safe, and taught good sense as they grow up... even if at times you mayannoy them to death but they will learn soon enough it is far better than driving themselves to death. (((Hugs))) to each one of you!

Glad to hear it.

Now I have a question - I'll avoid the vent - there's plenty of worse situations here. Does anyone here have any experience of catheters for cats with renal failure?

Snoop, there is a chronic renine failure web support group....I'll try and find it for you if you like.....?

NUMBER ONE ISSUE, what is your cat eating...DRIED FOOD IS THE WORST THING, even if a renal support food!

Drat, Snoop I have lost my addresses/webaddresses with that wretched ID fraud...I did a quick google and got this....feline-crf-info : Feline CRF Information

Someone I know from another forum is a great (amateur, but good) expert on CRF in cats, she is called Kim, and rescues CRF cats and is on two veterinary support groups for this....if you find her in the CRF group tell her Lulu who used to go to SOCOC recommended her. In any case, I frequented the group a few times researching food for my own cat who has a different problem and the support seems great.

Good luck.....diet and good (open minded) vet might not mean what you might think it means, if you can get those figures down ...I'll be praying for your cat.

Thanks lulu and Glenda. Unfortunately, we had to have him put to sleep. The vet came up with an enormous treatment regime but he had gone downhill so fast since our last visit that it was obviously going to be too much for him. All very sad.
