We got home from vacation

at Epworth by the Sea and noticed that Little Kitty is not looking well -- it's pretty obvious to me that she is declining from her ancient age. 19 (and a half) is old for a kitty. We are taking her to the vet shortly to see if there is any way we can make her more comfortable, but I fear the end is near for Kitty.

Her blood levels are showing that her kidneys are shutting down. She's lost 2 pounds and weights less than 5 pounds now. She's severely dehydrated but cannot take fluids on rapidly, as she is anemic as well. They are going to try an IV fluid therapy for a day and hope for improvement. If not, the kitty is well into kidney failure and has entered a condition "not compatible with life."
