My best bud has had his cat for 18 years. She used to be really fat, but in her old age her bones began to show. She had stopped eating and drinking. Well, the other day they brought her to the vet to be put down. She wasn't eating and they thought she was in pain due to her old age. Heres the best part, the vet did an exam and it turns out that she had a cyst in her throat. The vet drained it and sent her home. Now shes eating, drinking, trotting around the house and shes even gained weight. Looks like Whiskers is gonna be around for a little while longer.
great news about the cat,i hope there is another nine lives left in him or her.in the last week of june i took my bordercollie in for a vetcheck cause he was fifteen and drinking to much(water that is)found out his kidneys are shot.there was no sign he was sick,he died aweek later in my arms.
