    So sorry about your cat.
    I know you will have the strength to do the right thing.

    Man that sucks Bones!
    We eventually had to put down Katy for the same thing.
    But there are some pretty good drugs out there that will extend Clarks life.
    They bought Katy an extra year or so.

    just got off phone with vet...no use for an appt....he has started the compounding process.....it will take a week or so ....that is all we can do at this point...a scan of his brain will be 1500 to 2 grand....i cant rationalize that for a cat this age....and i have 4 others 2 dogs 2 more cats that like to eat and have medical and the vet said it wont make a bit of difference in the treatment

    Cats are a dime a dozen. Get some street heroin and meter the dosage to make him comfortable. (mixed with wet food)

    $1500 for a cat? :cuckoo:

    I've given up on tending my 1 cat's 2-year old infected head wound. A couple times I snuck her antibiotics,
    and it healed, and then she got into a fight with the cat that gave her the head wound again...twice.
    And the wound was back.

    I put some peroxide on it a few nights ago, now she hates me. These are outside cats.

    I'm considering grinding up some Prednisone, whatcha think?

    It's tough to see pets suffer. When it gets to you take comfort that you took care for the little fella all these years and provided him a wonderful life.
