The Evils of PKd

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
I haven't been here in a long time. Some of you will remember this spring when I had an experience with an unethical Persian breeder who sold me PKc positive cats. It was during this time that I discovered that my own Persian Tristan was sold to me with PKd. He was doing okay until recently. Then he just went downhill quickly and he's gone now... quicker than I could've imagined.

Here is a bit on Tristan and my tribute to him.

Remember... never ever breed and sell PKd positive cats - it's a horribly disease that the owners and pet have to suffer.

I'm so sorry for your loss of Tristan. I know how hard it is to lose a beloved kitty to renal failure. I have two cats with renal failure now, and it's difficult to know that they will probably not live to a ripe old age...

I will say a prayer for sweet Tristan's little soul and a prayer for you to find peace in this time of sadness.

I also lost my baby to a terrible disease on the 16th! (fip)

Your baby was beautiful, probably the most beautiful kitty on the planet.
I dont know if it gets better cause Im not there yet. Your baby was taken well care of and you loved him dearly which Im sure he is eternally greatfull for. You made his days with that terrible disease berrible. You did a good job, he had a good life and Im sure he's happy now over the bridge with my baby Glitch. Mine wasn't a champion like yours, but he was well loved and is much missed. I am sorry for the loss of your baby. Life really does suck sometimes, doesn't it?

PM if you wanna talk

The one with the big tummy is right before I had 18 oz drained off his belly.

The other one, the day before he died..

He was such a beautiful cat. I can see why he was a Grand Champion. Those pictures as the illness started getting the better of him, are just heartbreaking. At least he's now free of pain and is strong and healthy once again, and he's playing at The Rainbow Bridge. R.I.P. Tristan.

I'm so sorry to hear of the loss of your cat. I lost my cat Rebby the same way in January. You have my deepest sympathy. Rest in Peace Tristan.

Thanks to all of you for the heartfelt condolences. I'm doing okay other than moments now. His urn and paw print are on my dresser. One day I'll add a painting of him too.

So moments like these I remember him and take a few moments to shed my tears.

We took in a black female Persian recently. Upon finding out more it's very possible she is either related to or possibly is his own daughter. The owner didn't have her papers and I havent called the breeder yet, but this girl came from Tristan's breeder. I haven't gotten her tested yet but will. The vet didn't feel anything that would indicate she's having kidneys problems though.

The interesting part ... She sleeps in the same spot where Tristan slept.

I'm so sorry for your loss.

Keep up the fight to educate people - PKd is such an awful disease.

I lost my oldest boy (Levi) to renal failure at the end of January. He had just had his 15th birthday and had 'owned me' since birth along with his sister (Lottie who died in October from throat cancer). I'm lucky though as I still have 2 beautiful boys at home and love them to bits (Ollie and Magic).

I like to think Levi and Lottie are watching over us every minute of every day and I'm sure Tristan is doing the same for you.

Hello and thank you everyone for such sweet warm words and thoughts. It's been almost a year and a half already. I miss hime still today as I did when he left. I guess some pets stay with you forever in your heart and just keep grieving.

What you is say is so true - my Miss Tobie still touches my heart. Just imagine, though, your lovely Tristan sitting in our dear HopeHacker's lap, giving headbutts & getting cuddles
