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.

Happy Birthday, Coco! Jacky, you're a great Mom. She's lucky to have you taking such good care of her.

Thanks Brooke!!!
My sister got her when she was between 6-8 weeks old.
She was $45 and was the last kitten left because she was black and white and all the others looked siamese.
She was well worth it.

has your vet mentioned fluid therapy? I did it for 5 years with my CRF cat (he was diagnosed at 14 and lived another 5 years.....just lost him last Sept). although, with your cat having heart problems, fluid therapy might not work or be safe. does the vet mention that with High Blood Pressure and CRF that she may go blind? Watch for enlarged pupils....my cat also went blind, I knew nothing about hbp and caught it in time and with meds he got his eyesight back!!

it's amazing how resilient cats are...even when he was blind, he didn't complain, just kept trucking along, bumping into things but didn't give up. Made me think about my life and the little things I complain about!! But I was glad when his sight came back.

I wish your baby a very happy birthday.

oh, I was wondering, how thin is she? can you see her backbone? When cats have fur, it's not so noticable, but I wonder when they are nakid, how bad it looks. (I don't know how old my cat is since he found us!)

Thanks Everyone,
Coco gets fluids every other day.
I use a 18 G needle and have been doing fluids since Feb 2009.
Coco is not a sphynx.
She is only a little over 5 pounds now and used to weigh 10 pounds until she was 14.
Sorry you lost your cat.
