More bad news.

I posted this in the BR at Trek...

I'm back from the vet. It's worse than I thought. Ike may have liver damage and his kidneys could go at any time. He's lost a terrible amount of weight. The vet sounded like she was encouraging us to have him put down. I'm waiting for my sister to call back- it's her decision. But I'm the one who will have to take him in, and then bury him. It can't wait for her to get home.

I'm sorry :(

I woke up one day to a ferret that looked like a skeleton and the vet took almost two days to get around to telling us that it was kidney failure. It would have been much kinder if we could have put him down right away. Just remember that if you have to do it.

I'm so, so sorry! :(


My first cat had kidney failure, and by the time we figured out something was wrong, it was too late to save her. She's been gone 12 years, and I still think of her all the time.

Oh KM, I'm so sorry. It's so hard, but I hope you're able to have it taken care of quickly, for all sakes involved.

Thanks, all. I'm just sorry my sister and her family aren't here to say goodbye if he does have to be put down. :(
