Coco my siamese mix just turned 18. I was told in Jan 2009 that she had 5 months to live because of her CRF. She also has high bp.asthma,heart murmur,arthritis,bladder problems and allergies. I dread the day I lose her. She got very sick when she was 9 and I was told to have her pts. They thought she had diabetes but it was fia with severe anemia and infections. I am so glad that she is 18 now.
