Nova is doing better, thankfully. We now have to monitor his illnesses, but his fever seems to have broke and he started to eat last night (after refusing food for 5 days). He is not back to his usual self, and I am not sure he will be again, but he is a lot better than Thursday/Friday.

Andromeda has started to eat more as well and had a checkup Saturday to see how she is doing now. She did gain a quarted pound back and seems to be doing a lot better, but again, renal failue issues will always be a problem now. For now I am happy to have Andie and Nova on the mend.

I always dread 15, because that's about the age I lose most of them.  Some surprised me as I didn't know anything was wrong.  Some, were already sick for one reason or another.  I keep hearing of cats living 18 or 20 years and it makes me feel guilty, like I must be doing something wrong, but I don't know what.  To be sure, a lot of my cats I had no real idea how old they were but whenever I knew, they never quite seemed to make 16.  John

Nova has been feeling sick since Tuesday. Tuesday night and Wednesday he would nto eat and felt warm, so I rushed him to the vet. It is now his turn to have kidney disease and pancreatitis. He is still running a fever and feels awful. I have to run home sometime today from work to get him and drop him off at the vet again. I have always semi-jokingingly said, with 4 cats about the same age I expect 4 problems and deaths around the same time. Now I am starting to feel it for real and am not happy.

I had to give Andie her fluids again last night, but she faught more and pulled free, jerking the needle out. I did not have the heart to poke her again and try again, so she got only a tenth of her 75-100ml dose. :(
