My cat was diagnosed with CRF about 2 years ago. She has done great with little intervention except for diet. She is now about 16 (?) years old, and stopped eating about 4 days ago. I have offered any and every possible food to her, and she just isn't interested. My desire is to keep her at home, and as long as she is peaceful and comfortable, let her die when she is ready. BUT I am torturing myself - am I doing the right thing? She still moves around, drinks water, uses the box, and purrs when I pet her. She is thin, but seems to be at peace. I know she can't go too much longer without eating - is it OK to let her die on her own? I'm watching her for signs of stress and discomfort, and so far don't see any. Any thoughts out there? This is one of the most diffucult things I've ever had to deal with...
