17-year-old cat with kidney failure
Our cat has always been very healthy and with a good appetite.
A week or so ago, though, I could tell he was losing weight. He was eating, albeit not as much as he used to. But something just didn't seem right, so I took him to the vet, where they did blood tests and determined that he has CRF. They recommended giving subcutaneous fluids twice a week.
Over the course of this past week, he has stopped eating almost entirely. He got fluids on Tuesday of this week and then this morning. On Tuesday and Wednesday, he ate a little wet food, but since then has eaten almost nothing. He drank a little tuna juice today, but wouldn't even finish it and turned his head away when I offered it to him later in the day.
I won't be able to call the vet until Monday. Is there anything I can do over the next 30 hours or so that might help make him more comfortable? He is following his usual routines other than the fact that he won't eat, but he's definitely more lethargic than is normal for him. He went from being his usual self (feisty, hungry, vocal) to this state in less than two weeks.
