Hi! I am new to this...I have a 19 yr old pure black long hair cat. She is like my first born to me, even though I have three children, younger than her. I recently took her to the vets for her annual. She's always been a small cat, but this past year she's lost 2 1/2 lbs. She's down to only 4.8 lbs!!! She still eats and drinks water and goes to the bathroom. So far we are lucky about that. My problem is it seems she is starting kidney failure. The vets wants to keep her to do a urnine test. And take it from there. I'm affraid, when we went to the vets the other day she came home and had loss bowels and threw up a few times. I'm worried that even though they are tryin to help her, that she will be scared and lonely and being 19 yrs old she could die while there. Am I being selfish in not wanting her to get this test? Has anyone had an older cat? She's in no pain as of yet, why put her threw this, she is 19 after all....prolonging her life is it really worth it??? Any words of advice would be grately appricated!!!
